Disturbing sore throat and cold symptoms

I’ve had a sore throat since friday night and as my family doctor’s office not open on the weekend I thought I’d see how I go oever the weekend.

I’ve been lookig after myself, honey & lemon drinks, chicken soup. Usually for a bit of a sore throat/runny nose this would help.

Symptoms seemed to ease on Monday so I thought OK won’t go to the doctor. Night time came and all my syptoms flared up. Both sides of my throat swollen, slight fever, voice affected (can hardly talk) and felling really bad. Distressed because trying to cough up phlegm at the moment is very difficult with swollen glands on both sides and it is making feel like I’m gagging when I do.

Let’s just say this is the strangest throat thingy with runny nose I’ve ever had and very uncomfortable. I am able to breath so that’s good. It’s past midnight I’ve had a few hours of rest but I was woken up with fever and other symptoms. I’ve worse than when I went to bed.

Please pray for me. I am definetly going to the doctor’s in the morning. No use in trying an overnight medical centre or Hospital Emergency they are both likely to be staffed by inexperienced doctors.

Tryng not to panick. Got the heater on in the loungeroom and being in a warm room has helped calm down my symptoms. Might try and sleep here for rest of night.

Meanwhile need prayer if you can spare the time to hold me up to the Lord.

I’ve been trying to pray for myself but I’m just so distressed right now.

    Turned out I have a very bad case of laryngitis. I had it a few times before getting my tonsils out as a kid but I don’t remember it being that bad. Yes I know there is a different name for this condition if you have had your tonsils out but I can’t remember what the doctor called it. Basically I’ve got very infected throat and lost my voice. Hard to swallow, cough and it is really painful. Got painkillers with my antibiotics. They are really starting to kick in so I’m off to lala land for a while and might take this opportunity to catch up on some much needed sleep.

    I really would love to never go through this again. Very nasty. Worst winter I’ve had yet. So far this is my third virus/cold thingy and we still have quite a bit of cold weather to face. All I can say is Thank God it wasn’t Swine Flu.

    Probably take a while to get over this so I might not be around much.

      Praying for your speedy recovery.

      You might like to think about moving up here to Queensland. Warmer climate and all …

      Mel, how is your throat today? We’ve been praying for you….

        Thanks Tim for asking.

        I was getting better on the weekend and I had a bit of a relapse on Monday. Dry, scratchy throat. It seems a little better again today. This thing is hanging on. I’ve just finished the antibiotics. Will give myself a couple of days if I’m still the same have to go back for more anitbiotics.

        I’m knocked about by this thing and had fevers again yesterday. Can’t concentrate for long. I’ve been lurking quitely. Hehe. Enjoy it while it lasts. I’ll be all chitty chatty as soon as I’m fully over this. LOL. You won’t know what hit you.

        Thanks for the prayers I really needed it. A couple of times I felt I was bad enough to go to hospital, but I gave it some time before heading off and found I got better so I didn’t go. The hospital really is the last place I want to be right now. A hospital in our States rural area had to close down due to most of it’s staff having swine flu. The locals have to travel a long distance to another hospital for emergencies.

        Off to make a hot honey and lemon drink.
