Three days ago I was diagnosed with strep throat. One of my ears, one tonsil and my vocal chords were infected. The docs gave me a shot of penicillin, in the ass, and sent me to bed.
The next day, the strep was still raging. Both ears, both tonsils and my vocal chords as well as my throat were infected. An ass shot at 0700 another at 1900. Three bags of IV fluid in the morning, 1 in the evening.
Got up this morning to another ass shot and 2 bags of IV fluids. I’ve not eaten in three days since I can’t swallow. My ass now hurts as well as my throat, head and ears.
Tonight they gave me oral P-cillin, some Tylenol say I’m not infectuous and to get back to work. I still can’t eat. I feel like shit. My ass hurts. They say I may have mononucleosis, too. There’s no TV in my berthing. I’ve read all the books I brought on cruise with me. I only got off the ship for 2 1/2 hours when we were in St. Thomas… and it rained. I haven’t had sex for more than a month. And I terribly miss GBS.
And now there’s no one to baby me when I’m sick.
With the exception of the ship sinking in the next day or two, can anything else be this terrible?
