    I'm getting sick. I could feel it since this morning. In the back of my mouth, entering my throat I can see tiny white lumps. They are not on the dangly little thing, but they're in numbers. I can hock up all the phlegm I want, but my throat still feels funny, and it's annoying to swallow. I have a little bit of a headache and no runny nose.

    DEAR GOD! AM I DYING?! Anyone think they know? I've searched the net but all answers don't sound right.

    Thanks.

    Yeah.. sounds a little like Strep. Go to the doc, he'll swab your throat (hope that gag reflex isn't too strong..), test it, give you some pills and you'll be on your way.

    I used to get it every year for 4 or 5 years.. it sucks but, it's better than some other things you could get.

    You've got Strep-throat.

    It's gonna hurt and it's gonna suck. Means that you're whole system is under some nasty stress and everything's just going to be attacking you.

    Go to the doctor as soon as you can, like now. Tomorrow at the latest, you'll want to get onto the meds as soon as possible.

    Ya poor bugger, that sucks.

    aaaaaaaah crap.

    Well, it's a good thing I finally got health insurance... ****.

    I don't have much cash. Hope the copay is only 15 bucks or I'm screwed.

    Thanks people. I love you all. Now I must commit nuclear war against the germs!

    While you're on the anti-biotics, just remember: fruit and sleep.
    it's a cure-all. :)

    Oni, make sure you start antibiotics within 9 days of the symptoms. You sure don't want complications to set in like rheumatic fever. Get well.

    vitamins, rest, and antibiotics will help.

    lots of fluids. pepsi always helped me personally. or ginger ale.

    take it easy the next couple of days and get to the doc asap.

    That doesn't sound good. *sigh* Off to the doctor tomorrow then. I've taken so much time off from work recently. GAH! Funny thing is, my health insurance just kicked in. Didn't have any for three years...

    Dear KT, please ship peaches, kiwis and oranges. :)

    Dis: Hug much accepted in a non-threatended way.

    Rest, rest, and more rest.
    I use my [cure-all Green Tea], Water, Orange Juice, and Apple Juice (whichever I'm in the mood-for. Drink lots and lots of liquids (don't over-do it) because that's the quickest way to get better.

    Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well Onizuka. :( But I hope that you feel well soon. :)


    Good luck with that Onizuka, nuclear warfare can be quite dangerous. Do be careful. ;) :)


    I am sure that the doctor can give you some pretty potent stuff. :)

    That might be a bit difficult. But I hear Kim Jong-il might be able to help out. ;)

    Feel better soon, buddy. :)

    Going with the alcohol theme, I reckon vodka's the way to go. A quick shot of vodka can clear up almost any ailment, except for maybe broken legs and/or brain damage.

    Oh no, what you need is a shot of Spirytus Rektyfikowany ;)


    Hope it clears up quickly, Oni.

    That sounds like the sort of beverage that can only be pronounced properly after it has been consumed. :p

    My grandparents always have a bottle of that around for such occasions, though my granddad prefers his home made stuff. :)

    Get well soon Onizuka!
