I'm pretty sure we are having a relapse of strep. We all finished our medication last weekend and now two of us have very sore throats again (me & P). I think I may have re-infected the family - we cleaned, I promise! :) My body is extremely sensitive and allergic a lot of antibiotics and so the ideal treatment for strep is not a medicine I can take. I think what I did take surpressed it and made me feel better but didn't kill it. We'll see what the doctor says.
I'm very discouraged. We are generally health conscious and eat well overall. I think we need to be better about taking our daily vitamins - we haven't done the best on that lately. So today, I feel grumpy and tired and frustrated that we can't seem to get well. The idea of going back on antibiotics and feeling awful for yet another several days does not appeal. Caring for the kids and our house and the things that need done feels daunting.
And here I was all ready to post cute pictures of the boys' circus at school. :) Oh well, what can I say? I'll post them later or tomorrow. Right now, I have zero energy and have to take three kids and myself to the doctor. All right, I'm done wallowing in self-pity; we'll make it. And we'll cancel our plans for the weekend - we most certainly don't want to share.
