Well folks, today I headed to the doctor because I was starting to think that I might have strep throat. Turns out I DON'T have strep throat at all...I have mono.
MONO! What in the world?! I told the doctor that only teenagers get mono, but he laughed and told me that no, anyone can have it. This doctor got quite a kick out of it actually, and seemed to be rather amused when he informed me that I'd be sick like this for at least another 2 weeks. Sweet. My tonsils and glands are utterly swollen (I didn't realize how swollen my glands were until I was waiting for the doctor to come in and I discovered the big bumps on my neck.)
And my husband's reaction to all of this? "Who have you been kissing while I'm at work?" Just the four kids, dear, just the four kids. Between taking care of them and keeping up on dishes and laundry, I can assure you that I have no energy left for secret daytime kissing!
So at age 27, I'm officially a shut-in, highly contagious, and somewhat bed-ridden for the next 14 days or so. Oh and now that I'm infected with the notorious teenage "kissing disease", I guess it's time to pull out the Clearasil and Sweet Valley High books!
