Self diagnosis

Ok, my tonsils are swollen and my left lymph node is swelling. Yep, has to be strep.

My work will not allow me to miss another day, so I have to sit here all day today, and tomorrow, before I can see the Dr. on Thursday (vacation day along w/ Friday).

I hate corporate america! I can't stand the BS that goes on here. Yes, I'm ranting. My job, in the meantime, is to get as many other people here as sick as possible, since they won't let me leave to two hours to get this handled.

What this essentially all boils down to is that I will have two more nights of useless sleep! Sweating, chills, water, bathroom breaks, etc... All of this for my job?? It just doesn't seem worth it risking my life. Strep, for those of you who don't know, can actually kill you, if it goes untreated for too long.

How can they not allow you to be sick? What would happen if you just stayed home?

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

According to our company policy, if I miss two or more events w/in 60 days, I have to bring a dr's note for every sick day after!

Piedmont Minor Emergency Care after hours...get the there and go....the only downside is that if you get better, all the hotties won't be swooning over your ass like they are now! heh.

Go to the ER if you are feeling that bad!
... You'll know if it's strep, tomorrow!!!

You get treated today though, no need to wait, GO!

Blech!! I usually get tonsilitis at LEAST twice a year,, so I feel for you on varying levels.

I agree, go to an emergency care clinic after work, down OJ like it's going out of style (it does help the soreness in the throat), and try to take it easy. Damn corporate America for denying sick time. WTF, lol...isn't that what they're for??? I"ve been gotten on before from taking my fair shair.


aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 9:41 am:
I basically told them to fuck off when they wrote me up for it...

I've got a cure....just walk in to your bosses office and vomit all over them and their desk.....they'll be begging you to leave and not come back until you are well.

Until then make sure you are downing fluids like there is no tommorrow (I'm talking by the gallon / and non-alcoholic too) drown and flush it out of your system.....

aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 9:43 am:
I told him to fuck off instead and scheduled an appointment w/ my doc...

Now, call me and make that appointment.

You really should go and get that taken care of. you can get Rheumatic fever just from not taking care of Strep throat if that really is what you have. Take it from me, I know you can get a rapid strep screen and know instantly if it's positive or negative.

Also, Strep is very contagious. They should know better than to make you work!

Feel better soon!


Come have fun! Visit my blog at Lioness_girl

Strep can turn into Scarlet Fever in a day with some people. My daughter's did when she was 5 even though she was already on antibiotics. Twelve hours on meds and you are no longer contagious.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 9:58 am:
Yes, it's some nasty shit!

As a preschool teacher and mother of a 5 year old I am "intimate" with Strep. Last year my son had it 5 times and I had it 4 times. This year we are 2 for 2. Yes, it can kill you if you are immune compromised. Strep will go away without antibiotics but you will continue to be contagious for up to 2 weeks. You can call your Dr. and ask for 10 days worth of amoxicillin. (My son likes the chewables. I prefer the capsules.) Drink lots of fluids, hot or cold, whatever makes your throat feel better. Get as much rest as you can. Then check into Cozy Cove General Hospital. From what I read, you will need all your strength for a stay at that place! LOL!
Feel better!


aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 10:00 am:
Thanks for visiting my blog! What a boring topic to jump in on... Yes, I got some amoxicillin today... I'm sure it will be gone soon.

I'm sorry you're feeling blue, hun!!! Would you like me to bring you some chicken noodle soup and some TLC?

I know what you mean about not being allowed to miss anymore work. I've been sick twice this year! And, I missed a total of 7 days between both times. When I got back to work (after the second time), I got written up! I couldn't get into see my doctor before I went back to work, but I had an appointment a couple days later to get a note. Well, my bosses knew this, but they wrote me up anyway! WTF!?! So, I basically wasted money going to the doctor to get a note that I didn't fucking need! That's bullshit!!!

I feel your pain, sweetie! Get well soon, sexy!!!


aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 10:01 am:
I'm all about TLC!

Yes, my bosses basically did the same thing to me yesterday afternoon, even w/ a note... I told them to fuck off.

CVS pharmacies have what they call "minute clinics" in some of their locations. They promise you will see a nurse practitioner and be out of there in 15 minutes. They are also supposed to accept most major insurance plans. Sorry to sound like a commerical, but thought you could use some information on a place you may be able to jaunt to on your lunch hour.

aascrompn replies on 3/29/2006 10:02 am:
That's good to know in the future... Meanwhile I just went to my regular doc today.

Awww...I knew we were buddies. See, we both get the same old nasty mean Strep. Did your doc give you that double pen shot that mine always gives me? It SUCKS to have strep...NOTHING makes you feel better...well...except for snuggling.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn
