Not So Fabulous- Not Taking Care Of Yourself


The soar throat started on Monday. I did what all Mothers do. I ignored it. Suffered through. Pushed on. The next day it was the same. Wednesday was no better, actually worse adding coughing incessantly to my "To Do" list.

It wasn't until yesterday, talking to sister in law the pediatrician, that I realized how crazy I was. I had been working in the morning, then had headed to a meeting in the afternoon. On the way back I told her about my razor blades in the throat.

SIL: How many days now?

Me: Four.

SIL: Did you ever think you might have strep?

Me: Um, what?

SIL: Four days of soar throat? Sounds like strep.

Me: What happens if I leave it unchecked?

SIL: If you don't take anti biotics, you could get really sick and have a heart attack.

Me: Gotta go, calling my doctor.

Even later, feeling worse by the second, I was trying to find a way to still make the Mom's Night Out I planned work. Not because I needed a glass of wine, but because I felt BAD. Didn't want to let people down.

Note to self: wouldn't you be letting everyone down if you died of a heart attack?

Me: Oh yeah, I guess you're right.

Live and Learn.

Hope you are on the way to feeling like a million bucks very soon,
Just think when you are feeling like the million bucks how good that glass of wine is going to taste.

Feel better! Get yourself on the z-pack 5 day antibiotic and you'll be back to your fabulous self in no time. My older two children's school is a germ factory this year. Middle one with 5 day fever then a week later turned into double ear infection. ugh. It's going to be a long winter.
