Yes, I really am sick. And I'm beginning to doubt that it's a cold that will go away on its own. Dammit. This is more like strep throat.
Yup, sore throat never became the sniffles. Instead, it just became an unbearable stabbing pain every time I move, swallow, breathe. You know, just live in general.
Painkillers and throat lozenges currently getting me through the basics. Wonder what it's going to take to get me to a doctor? Ugh... Dad still holding out for cold. Yeah, right.
