Pharyngitis Sucks

Ive been bed ridden for 3 straight days now. Started feeling iffy last Thursday morning, and I was thinking twice about heading to a magazine launch that night and my friend's birthday party at a later time. I decided not to go to the magazine launch, sleep it in for a while and be a good friend by dropping by my friend's birthday bash.

The next day...

Yeah, I wish I looked that good the next morning. But I didn't. My throat was sore, and I had fever. My body was so heavy, my family had to bring me back home from our lunch out to rest. I didn't even drink that night!

I went to the ER the following night and found out I had Pharyngitis. I had such a hard time swallowing food and drinking. I had to stay in bed the whole time. TERRIBLE. I'm under antibiotics and paracetamol at the moment. Hopefully I'll be strong enough to go to work tomorrow.

Just in case you were wondering what the symptoms are, let me do a bit of public service for you:

Swallowing may be difficult or painful and the throat may feel scratchy.

The throat often appears red, swollen, or puffy, and may have white spots of purulent exudate (pus). Fever and cough are also common.

Examination may reveal swollen tonsils (near the base of the tongue), which may also be covered with white or gray exudate.

The lymph nodes in the neck often become swollen and tender.

I pray to GOD you never get to experience this.
