So I thought I had strep. When your tonsils are swollen and have little white polka dots on them, generally, that is strep. Even the doctor agreed. So they swabbed me, not once, not twice, but THREE times, just to be sure. Now, when your throat is practically swollen shut, that is more than a little uncomfortable. All that, and I don’t have strep. So they poked me with some needles to find out if maybe I have mono. Delightful.
