Sick Boy

I've had what I thought was a cold for almost a week now. I say I thought it was a cold although I only had a sore throat. It was annoying but nothing more, but gradually it has got worse and worse until yesterday I was struggling to even drink water because it hurt so much. I'm never really one to go to the doctor but even I thought this was a bit odd so I've been working at home today and just spent the last 90 minutes or so in the doctor's surgery. They had a poke around and decided after a fairly quick discussion that I have strep throat.

So now I am being dosed up on penicillin and they have sent a swab off just for confirmation. Hopefully it will get sorted out fairly quickly as I haven't slept properly for a week now.
