I don't know how it took me so long to realize this, but I'm working on some sort of throat-oriented illness. For the last week or so, I've been aware of a weird feeling in the back of my throat when I swallow, but it wasn't until yesterday that I finally looked in the mirror to see what it might be.
Ewww! Red spots all over the back of my tongue! My throat doesn't exactly hurt, but I can sense the potential. I have no idea what it might be. Strep, maybe? Whatever it is, I'm not looking forward to dealing with it over the course of two plane rides within three days.
The kicker is that my doctor's office can't get me in before I leave town for my grandmother's funeral. I suppose I can always go to an Urgent Care clinic tonight if I think it's necessary. Unfortunately, that'll be a little tough to squeeze into my schedule with my cousin spending the night tonight so he can travel with me and my sister to Florida on Friday morning.
I know there's never a good time to be sick, but does it HAVE to be right now?
