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!

Hello
order ambien
In fact Ambien is a trade name of Zolpidem.

So if you want to take advantage of its salient features, then just try it out without any hesitation.

Ambien also acts as anticonvulsant, as found by the experts.

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.
