People are so odd
I\’ve had strep throat about six times this school year, including my most recent diagnosis from last week. Last time I had it, I think February, my doctor decided that enough is enough and I need to get my tonsils out. That\’s planned for June 11. Until then, I just have to suffer through never ending bouts of strep and repeated rounds of antibiotics.
I\’ve tried to do my own research on this to find a way to make my life less miserable between now and the impending tonsillectomy. In my most recent search, I decided to view the images associated with strep throat. I expected to see some clinical shots and even those lovely unrealistic medical text book drawings. I found a few of those, but primarily, I found lots of shots of people who took pics of their gross looking throats and posted them for the world to see.
WHY? I mean, when I feel strep coming on, I sneak a peak at my tonsils to confirm my suspicions. Strep is nasty looking. I don\’t want YOU to see my tonsils, even on a good day. Why, oh, why would anyone think that their buddies would like to see their infected pus-filled throats? EEEEEWWW.
I\’m grossed out enough for today. I guess I\’ll save the search on hemorrhoids for another day!
