why now??


i'm pretty sure i have strep throat. two days ago, my throat closed up and i could barely talk. it got better yesterday, and now its back, full throttle. i'm running a half-marathon on saturday... how am i going to do that if i can hardly swallow? any suggestions for quick healing? i've been trying to sleep a lot, drink orange juice, daily vitamin---HELP.


i could use some prayers.

i've been feeling this same way since april 9th. it will not freaking GO AWAY. a this point vitamins are nice but just fluff....skip to the dayquil to get you through life. good luck this weekend.

Go get a shot! When stefano had it he got one and felt better the next day.. he wasn't all the way better for a few days, but I don't think strep is one of those things vitamins can take care of! I'm so sorry!!!:(

I'm sorry to hear that Jenna...My mother would say eat lots of fresh garlic... Though I have no idea if that'd help with strep throat or not. Good luck on Saturday, I think it's great you're doing the SLC half!

Do you know butter "ghee"? It's an indian butter extract. Just put a little bit into your herbal tea. It's just magical, believe me. And also washing your throat with saulty water helps a lot.
I'm sending you all my love...

Oh it won't go away (sorry..), but just try to fix the symptoms. Hot water, lemon and honey three times a day always helps me.

Good luck on the race. u rock. motivate the rest of us.
