It's official. I'm sick.
I suppose one could argue that I'm always sick, but today it's acute. Last night I developed a mild fever and terrible headache along with my sore throat.
It really hurts to swallow, and my entire body is achy. Moving takes a lot of effort. I don't have a stuffy nose or any other cold-like symptoms, so I need to get a throat culture for strep. I am prone to strep infections.
I tried to get an appointment with my regular doctor this morning, but she's out sick. Unfortunate coincidence. I then called my allergy and asthma doctor to see if her office did throat cultures. Nope.
I am now trying to find a near-by walk-in clinic that does throat cultures. That's why I'm online. If I didn't have to look for a clinic, I would not have dragged myself upstairs to the computer.
Found a clinic. It's one of those new walk-in clinics attached to a major store (e.g., CVS, HEB, Walgreens, etc.). Here I go!
