Went to the Doctor Today...
So when I woke up this morning my throat was still really sore. I did what I should have done and called the doctor to make an appointment. I don't like going to the doctor, so you know it had to be really bothering me if I actually went to see someone about it.
I went at 2:00 PM and the doctor took all my vitals. That was the first good news, I'm still alive. Then he started doing some other doctor things and let me know that I was the first person in there that day that had all of those symptoms but did not have bronchitis. I guess that's good news?? He then took a look at my throat and said that it was looking pretty bad, so he was going to give me some medicine.
He prescribed some amoxicillin and told me to just keep taking whatever pain medicine I like. I guess that's how I had fooled myself into thinking I was feeling better on Wednesday, I had been taking regular doses of Ibuprofen all day long. He also told me to not talk too often and that gargling salt water would help with my voice.
I went and got the amoxicillin and some more ibuprofen from the store and hopefully I'm on my way to recovery now...which is a good thing, because I'm sick of being sick...
