Diagnosed with strep throat this morning - which explains the feeling of glass shards in my throat every time i swallow or talk or cough. this is how i will be spending my friday, with plenty of water, amoxicillin, sudafed, and cough drops. as well as my cold/flu buster oil blend applied to my feet every couple hours. i will be contagious until tomorrow morning, so i must miss my son's soccer game tonight as well. at least my puppers is helping me stay warm and rest all day.
I have been fighting a fever and a sore throat since yesterday, 2 nights of barely any sleep due to chills/shaking/fever spiking. however, today was a scheduled weight workout day - so i did it, but went with lighter weights to protect my fragile, tired muscles. now i can shower, get my son to the bus stop, and head to the doc for a strep test, just to be safe.
I woke up multiple times overnight uncomfortable, finally got up at 3:30 to check my temperature - yep, have a slight fever. but i also have a majorly important day at school that i can not miss. ibuprofen and my own cold/flu buster oil mix, a nice workout, and i will hopefully make it through the day. i am still keeping hope that we will get a snow day though.
