A Few Things I've Learned From Strep

I despise being sick. This is something I've known for a while. (Hint hint God, you don't need to keep reminding me!) But I will acknowledge that there are a few lessons I've learned the last few days, thanks to strep throat. I thought I'd share a few of them with you today.

  • iPhones are great tools for taking pictures of your nasty tonsils
  • Strep-infested tonsils are gross
  • Febrile sweating is a great way to lose a pound or so while you sleep
  • Febrile loss of appetite is a great way to lose a pound or so while you don't sleep
  • Definitely time any necessary strep throat before swimsuit season
  • Household demands don't seem to notice that you're sick
  • But they do taunt you while you're lying on the couch. I swear the cobweb on the living room curtain rod was laughing at me yesterday...
  • Getting sick lowers my patience to a threshold similar to that of 2 year olds
  • You need to have patience greater than a 2 year old to effectively manage a 2 year old
  • Attempting to manage a normal life while sick is sometimes necessary
  • And it makes you bad@ss

Wash your hands, friends.
