I Hate Doctor's Offices.

Well, I went to the infirmary where I was informed that I either have strep or mono. Either way, talk about sucking. I'd prefer the former to the latter, but either way it's going to be a miserable time for me for a while. The miracle drug penicillin is keeping me calm until the test results come back on the strep. If I get worse, then I probably have mono, and then I get to seriously freak out. It is, after all, crunch time here at UConn.

Luckily, I have some delicious homemade chicken matzo ball soup courtesy of a real-life Jewish grandmother from the old country. I couldn't be more elated. So please, pardon me while I eat some soup and crawl into bed for the 30th time today.

Oh, and I do promise to respond to comments posted throughout at some point when I'm not feeling so low, and I will also do up a Part I to my Shabbaton Reflections, as well. I just lack the energy to do anything. This post? Took me way longer than it should have to type.

Ohhh, YUCK! I hope it's strep rather than mono -- get well soon!!!!

Feel better soon -but what are you doing with Mono?

I had to Google 'mono' - being a Brit I needed to know what we call it here. Now I know it's another name for glandular fever, I really hope it's not that!

Look after yourself. Chicken soup will undoubtedly help.

Yeah, strep is nawsty but goes away relatively quick...Refuah Shleimah!

@Katy Me too! Thanks

@Mottel It's actually going around. I wouldn't have gotten it the old fashioned way, but with the way I feel today I think I can rule it out.

@Rachel How strange that we have different names for things! I'm feeling quite a bit better today, thank Gd, so here's hoping it's not mono!

@Daniel/@Jacob Thanks guys :)
