Has it been a week yet. It sure feels like it. It doesn't matter how long you really were sick, it still feels like it was LONGER.

I had strep. AGAIN. This is the third time in 2 months. After 28 years of never having this horrid disease. My diabetically skinny DR. informed me that if I get it again, he's going to take out my tonsils. Hmm, I'd like to see ya try buster. Remember me, I'm the whole natural childbirth lady?? Yeah, it's not because I wanted the wonderful experience of "feeling" my baby be born. NO, it is the whole idea of hospitals, drugs, needles that scares the hell out of me.

I'm a chicken. A real honest scaredy-cat when it comes to hospitals. Just the smell freaks me out. And they do smell. I'm okay with a clinic; seeing the dr. at his office. But take me to a hospital, and I get heart palpitations, sweaty palms, and that is just in the parking lot. I used to be this same way with dentists. Oh yeah, I still am. If you are having a baby, and you choose to birth in a hospital, don't be offended if I don't visit. I don't know what the big deal is, and frankly I don't care, just keep me away from the hospital and I'm fine.

So if you know of any tricks, any means to keep yourself strep free, I'd really like to hear them.
