Throat Swab
Just went to the doctors about my throat. He was surprisingly helpful - not just "here - take these antibiotics" - and bothered to actually look and poke about a bit, and mentioned my glands are a bit up etc. Maybe laringitis apparently. Deep Joy.

Apparently, to determine if it's viral or bacterial I should have a throat swab - so he packed me off to the nurse. "It won't be pleasant" he warned. Reception tried to save me by directing me to the wrong floor, but eventually I found the nurse. "It's not unpleasant" she said. Then she scraped a cotton bud down the back of my throat.

This WAS quite unpleasant. I proceeded to spend the next 3 minutes coughing rather painfully and thinking quite seriously about vomitting.

Now I have to wait until Tuesday to find out what's going on. "Avoid smokey environments" the doc said. So, I'll be spending Whitby on the beach getting snowed on then...

Current Mood: coughing
Current Music: Aqua - Barbie Girl

Hrrrm. Would a suppressant be of at least some use over the next couple of days?

Hopefully I'll cope. Based on Intrusion earlier in the week, drinking plenty of water is important, and popping out for the occasional breath of fresh air.

Way Hey!

Makes playing Ziusdra easier if you have a throat infection, all you need now is curvature of the spine and to superglue your thumb into your mouth.
