I am home from school, yet again, today. I had every intention of working today and tomorrow, but it just didn't work out that way. So, here I am, sitting on my couch, trying to keep myself from going crazy.
In this post, two weeks ago, I first mentioned that I wasn't feeling well, and I went to see the doctor. They told me it was a virus of some sort and I just had to wait it out. I waited and while it wasn't awful, I definitely wasn't feeling like my energetic self.
Last week, after a second trip to the doctor, I was told I had mono. I haven't heard much of that since high school, but at least it explained why I still didn't feel good. They told me to go home and rest. So, all weekend long I rested. For four days, I sat on my couch, watched some movies, read my great book, and did a little school work. I felt a little better, but who really knew, seeing as I had not ventured far from the couch. Monday (today) came along, and I figured I would surely be able to go back to school. I was excited at the thought of interacting with people and getting stuff done!
Unfortunately, my body had other plans for me today and while at swim practice this morning, I fainted. It scared me enough to go home and call the doctor. After explaining my new symptoms, they took another (closer) look at my test results and realized, oh yes, that I also have strep throat. Not what I wanted to hear, but it explains why I am not getting better, and even better than that, it is treatable with something other than "rest". So here I sit, hoping, wishing, and praying that I will feel better soon.
With the meds, I am hoping that I am feeling good enough to travel home on Thursday...and the doctor Ok'd it (and I am not supposed to be contagious)!! Because even though I am 26 years old and fully capable of taking care of myself, its so nice to think that my mom will be around to take care of me in just a few days.
Gosh, I am such a baby!! So there's my update. I have no exciting pictures to show, and I'm sure no one would want to see them. I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
*Shoutout* - Thank you, Mom, you helped me so much this morning! I know that you would have much rather slept in, but talking to you made me feel so much better. I love you!
