Today is my birthday. I have strep throat. Ugh! This is only the 2nd time in my life that I've had strep and let me tell you it is the DEVIL! I was fine on Tues. A little tired but that is pretty typical for me so didn't think anything of it. Went to bed early and woke up at 2:30 AM and felt like I was swallowing knives. Life for real. Fell back asleep for an hour and woke up again and it was worse. Took Advil. I forced myself to get really for work and was in denial that it was strep even though I knew it was worse than a regular sore throat.
Once at work it got more painful by the minute and by 11:30 I was in my car on the way home. I was lucky to get an apt with my PCP and it only took him 2 seconds of looking at my throat to know it was strep. "That looks terrible." "No offense!" He told me it was the worst he had seen in a while. Great. Lucky me. Two days before my birthday and a weekend filled with plans.
If I'm being completely honest 2014 has not been a good year for me at all. Actually it has been pretty Shitty. Yes that is a Shitty with a capital S just to emphasize how bad it has been. Let's see:
-lost iPhone in the snow bank
-coldest, longest, winter ever with still no hope of finding that iPhone
-migraines/vertigo for 4 weeks
-threw out my back looking (for the 100th time) for that iPhone
-missed St. Patrick's Day celebrating due to back injury
-strep throat on my birthday = double whammy
-coldest, longest winter EVER (yes that deserves repeating b/c it has been torture)
So. . . here is to hoping for a good start to my 37th year. I can't even believe I am 37! How the heck did that happen?
Going to focus on all the fun things I have coming up including Opening Day next Friday! Woo Hoo!
Ok so pity party over. Hope I didn't give any of my friends and co-workers strep throat.
