So if a sore throat persists for a week and a half, that's generally considered really bad, right?


I'm sure throwing parties helps it. Also, going to shows and yelling a lot.

My original plan was to get up early and go running this morning. Yeah, no. And not only am I beating myself up over not having gotten up at five or six to go running, I'm beating myself up because even getting up at seven, I still didn't get as many hours of sleep as I should be getting. I can't win.

My mother's folk wisdom was always, if it hurts for more than three days, go to the doctor.

Yeah, I think my mom would say that too. It comes and goes, is the thing. But I do need to go to the doctor anyway. Argh. It's not the actual going to the doctor I don't like; it's the finding a doctor and making an appointment and all. I haven't been since living here, and I don't have the slightest idea where to go, or how to start figuring it out. I've hardly ever been to a doctor that wasn't my family doctor in my hometown.

Sigh. Yeah, still working on this whole "adulthood" thing.

Re: finding a doctor

Go to your insurer's website, find your provider network, and search for a doctor that's close to you.

It's wonderful to have health insurance...I miss it terribly.

If your throat is really sore, zinc lozenges can soothe irritated tissue. Just don't take more than 2 or 3 a day.
