To Google Or Not To Google...

Okay, this may just be the worst sore throat I have ever had. I'm still not letting myself Google "diphtheria." But I spent a good hour and a half last night having panic attacks about it. Hypochondria is a harsh mistress.

Today I went to the commissary to stock up on food for the next 2 weeks, illness be damned. I did okay, though I think I was sort of whimpering by the time I reached the checkout. I came home and went to bed, which my contract definitely doesn't allow; but I don't care. My husband won't fire me, because he wouldn't be able to find anyone else dumb enough to take my job.

Not the best of days, folks; my usual light-hearted wit (ahem) has high-tailed it out of here for the duration. If anyone finds it, please let me know.

  8. No, no, no, you got that wrong. He wouldn't find anybody *tough* enough to take that job.

    I predict that once you are up and around again, everyone will treat you nicely [even the teenagers], if only for half a day, because they will be so happy to have Mom back.

    When they do, get it bronzed or get it notarized. Just sayin'.

  17. Sore throats are really tough on Mommies! Are you sure you don't have Strep? You'll need antibiotics to get rid of it. (Open you mouth in the mirror, shine a flash light at the back and look for white blotches.
    You don't have to have a fever to have strep. No biggie, just get some Zithromax, or Amoxicillin to kill it.

  22. Sure hope you feel better - After many days of a sore throat I took my son to the doctor. He had a throat and a sinus infection. Maybe if he had complained more I would have taken him sooner - strange child - so different than his sisters. Signed, Still a Fan

  23. I hate it when I get sick. Hubby and the kids still need attention and the housework doesn't get done.

    The last time I had bronchitis, the Dr told me she could write me a note so I could stay home. I told her I'd rather be at work. I get paid to sit at a desk and answer the phone at a computer helpdesk. I get more rest here than I would at home.
