Strep Throat Timeline

Timeline for Children
8:00 am - "Mom, I don't feel so good..."
One hour later - We've gone to the doctor and the pharmacy.

Timeline for Mommies
Saturday - "Wow. I'm really starting to feel like crap."
Sunday - "Yup, pretty sure I'm dying. Body aches and headaches really suck.
Monday - "It's probably strep, but I just don't have time to go to the doctor's! I have work and school...there's just no time."
Tuesday - "I can barely move. My neck is killing me and I'm so exhausted. I really should go to the doctor...but I promised the kids we'd do something fun since it's spring break."
Wednesday - "I have to go to school today? Agh. I can barely drag my butt out of bed..."
Thursday - "I can't go to the doctor today. I can't even get out of bed."
Friday - "I haven't slept, because every time I swallow it feels like I'm swallowing razor blades. Throat lozenges aren't doing a dang thing to help the pain. I feel like I've been beat with a baseball bat up and down my spine. I wish I could find time to go to the doctor."
Saturday - "Holy crap....this has been going on for a complete week...I'm going to the doctor."

Your good! It usually takes me a couple of weeks to decide to go to the doctor if I'm sick... and that was even before I was a mommy!

Andrea said...

Isn't that the truth. Sigh...

Hope you feel better soon!

Melessa said...

That's my timeline too! I was just thinking about this last night with a sore throat of my own. I think mine is just allergy-related though because swallowing has been annoying for a couple of days, but doesn't make me want to cry...Yet.

ain't that the truth?!?! I mean seriously...

Angela said...

So very true. Craziness.

Tinabean said...

I am so sorry to hear that you got strep.
I have never had it myself but I've heard it's pretty awful to have.
I hope that you are feeling better now & that you & your family had a wonderful Easter.

Sniz said...

Oh how true, Leeann! I can't remember the last time I went to the doctor!

bequi said...

That bites. Too bad you're kids can't drive, cuz I bet they'd want their normal mommy back ASAP and they'd MAKE you go to the doctor!

Be careful, undiagnosed strep can lead to really serious complications. My mother had a friend who didn't know it was strep and went blind in one eye... :-\
Anyway, nothing is more valuable than your health and I say this as a son who wanted to do cool things over spring break. We care more about you than all that stuff, trust me.
