I'm pissed

More than pissed, I am in pain and at the end of my rope. I have strep throat. The only time I have left my house since Monday was yesterday to go to the dr. My tonsils are so swollen, sometimes it is hard to breathe and they FRICKING HURT!!! I don't know if any of you have ever had strep throat before, but I would not wish this on my worst enemy. I feel broken and totally defeated. I am frustrated and so sick of this pain. The closest thing to solid food I have eaten since Monday was a muffin and a piece of chicken, both of which made me want to cry with pain. Even drinking water makes me wince with pain.

On top of all that this just happens to be the week that Pace is scheduled to work nights. So I have been here all alone during the night which is the most difficult time for me, and then he has slep all day while I am up watching crap on tv.

When I went to the doc he gave me a prescription for 800 mg of Ibuprofen he said to start on that and see what it does for the pain. Uh.....NOTHING! He also gave me a prescription for Oxycodone if the Ibuprofen didn't work. I have NEVER taken a prescription pain killer before. I have never taken a narcotic like Oxycodone and it kind of scared me, so I talked myself out of filling it. Now, I am kicking myself in the a$$ for not filling it cause I am in SO MUCH PAIN.

I just had to vent, I had to get this off of my chest, I just had to let you all know where the hell I am right now and what I am going through.

I am SO sorry you are feeling so crummy--and that you dont have your DH to be at home taking care of you.
Hope you feel better really really soon!

Can you still get the prescription filled? As long as you take it exactly as prescribed, you won't have problems as far as "overdose" or "addiction", if that's what you're worried about. Only thing is, you need to eat with it or it might upset your stomach (and then you'd have to deal with the pain of eating). I guess it's viral since he didn't give you any other med, huh? Those are the worst having to wait for them to run their course:(

I'm sorry you're so sick and without Pace at night:( What about popsicles? Chloroseptic spray? And a really good drama on t.v.?:)

Hope you feel better soon. I'll be prayin' for ya.
