Strep throat

Awwwww, nuts.

I think I have strep throat.

I'm pretty sure I have strep throat.

  • red and white patches in the throat - check
  • difficulty swallowing - check
  • tender or swollen glands (lymph nodes) in the neck - check
  • red and enlarged tonsils - check
  • headache - not unusual with me
  • lower stomach pain - I always have that
  • fever - check
  • general discomfort, uneasiness, or ill feeling - another everyday occurance
  • loss of appetite and nausea - check

Yep, I have strep.

Get to a doctor, dammit!!

Jadette's allergies are on a rampage, and she had to use the "breather" today. (nebulizer) Mine are only at a mild roar.

I think I much perfer Miss Lauren to one of the aides in Jadette's classroom. Miss Tina is a big, manly, gruff, obnoxious lesbian who has no idea how to deal with any children, let alone disabled ones. I've made several complaints, and she keeps getting reprimanded. They're just afraid to fire her because she's a lesbian and they apparently don't want a law suit. Even the teacher has tried to get rid of her. At Christmas, she told one of Jadette's classmates " Ahhh knock it off!! Yeah, life sucks when you're in preschool," in her big, booming man-voice. This kid is profoundly disabled by a brain injury and subsequent brain surgeries. He's a happy, loving, affectionate little guy who gives me a hug every day when I pick Jadette up from school. He calls me "Mommy." All he wanted to do was to go see Santa Claus again.

I'd so prefer a teenie bopper to that mess.

Doctor. Now. Get better!
