and the results on that damned sore throat...


turns out this damned sore throat is most likely strep. Ugh. And to top it off, I got another thing added onto my list of "Things You Do *NOT* Fuck Around With to See If They'll Go Away On Their Own."

The big thing previously on that list is UTI's, and after suffering through the hell that was a kidney infection last fall, I'm not arguing anymore.
And now, I'm told that adults who had strep a lot as kids (as I did, two or three times a winter) are at risk for massive complications from strep as adults, so in other words, I'm not to wait and see if a sore throat gets better before jumping on it either.

Yay. I'm a walking medical disaster. And I think I'll wander off for a nap.
