Z-Pack and AP Tests

My plans for this weekend pretty much just included cramming for my upcoming AP test on Monday and Tuesday, well of course my body had different plans.

Saturday started off pretty normal, I went in for my monthly blood test which is always fun. My morning went about as usual but I started to get a cough and my throat was a little sore. I still went to my study groups, I just grabbed some cough drops and ordered a cup of tea instead of coffee at Starbucks.

Saturday night I could not sleep, I kept coughing and my stomach felt weird (not to mention my knee felt like someone was stabbing it), I probably got around 4 hour. When I woke up this morning and could not talk and my throat killed, and I overall just had that hit by a truck feeling. Clearly my body could not handle the fact I almost went 5 weeks without seeing the inside of a doctor's office.

Normally I would have waited till tomorrow to see if my symptoms went away on their own and gone to see my GP, but with the AP Bio exam tomorrow I was not trusting fate, so it was off to the walk in clinic. It is always fun explain my history to a new doctor. I was actually in and out of there in under 20 minutes (we showed up when it opened). My throat was inflamed and my lymphe nodes swollen, but rapid strep came back negative. Given the fact I am so obviously sick, it will take the 48 hour test an extra day (because its a Sunday), and I have AP test tomorrow and the next day the doctor prescribed me a Z-Pack of antibiotics.
My Day in a Nutshell

So here's to hoping that the antibiotics clear up what ever it is I have by tomorrow morning in time for the AP exam! Just another reason me and my immune system ore not on speaking terms.
