Ever since I woke up Sunday morning I have been feeling horrible, and by horrible I actually mean death brought back to life and then beaten with a stick. Nice thought right? Anyway so I have been feeling terrible, my throat feels like I was swallowing lava and it feels like my upstairs neighbors with their clogs on are practicing inside my head. It got so bad I had to miss class yesterday just so I could sleep, which I was justifying because on Monday I couldn’t concentrate on anything the profs were saying.

     So I finally got a Dr appointment last night and after waiting in an extremely shady waiting room they took me back and the nurse who gave me a strep test left no crevice of my throat unswabbed. I swear she was asking me to throw up on her. So after waiting 40 minutes (my extensive knowledge of strep tests tells me that it does not take that long to grow bacteria in a culture…) a Dr came in and checked me out and then said “oh you have a viral infection and I recommend sleep and fluids.” WHHHHHAAAAT?!?? Listen here Dr do you remember when you were in med school and you had finals coming up? Yeah can you just give me a Z pack or something so I feel better? But no, so at this moment I have a water bottle full of OJ with me and plan on taking tylenol every 6 hours. Oh and one of my fellow classmates, Leslie, made me homemade chicken soup last night and brought it to class today. The wonderful smell is currently wafting all around me. She is my new BFF, I cant wait to eat some!

umm Leslie packed an entire 2 days worth of food for me! She is amazing!

yes those are tortellinis in the soup… OMG SO GOOD

      I hope everyone is staying healthy and if you’re feeling a little under the weather then go grab some chicken noodle soup and watch some tv. Although I wouldnt recommend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when you’re sick… it didn’t make me feel any better… sweet outfits, but not really bolstering my heath.
