"Well, *I* haven't been sick in a long, long time!" I proudly declared to the dental tech cleaning my teeth.
"Oh, yeah" she continued. "There's been a really bad bug going around the office lately. The other girl got ill, then I was away yesterday, and we nearly cancelled your appointment today."
I glanced again at her.
Whew. I sat back in the chair and relaxed. We moved on to other albeit one-sided-for-the-most-part conversations.
An hour or so later, I was outta there. Yay! No more medical appointments for me! After five visits, the work was finally all done. Now I could enjoy my weekend which, because it was early Friday afternoon, started just a wee bit early. Woot!
How wrong I was.
What started out as a sore throat Saturday has now blossomed into what suspiciously feels like strep throat again. Although "sore" throat doesn't quite describe it adequately.
Searing pain that travels from your throat up into your ears painful.
Pain reliever commercial "Lightning-Bolt" style painful.
Well, you get the gist.
Staying home from work yesterday and today because I basically can't talk, I was hoping this was just a simple cold. But no congestion, sneezing or runny nose... then I feared the flu; but other than severe larygnitis with a touch of fever and nausea, I don't think it's that either.
Maybe I need to go to the doctor.
But I sure as hell am NOT going back to the dentist.
