Having strep throat can really test one's allegience to foods and drinks. Or I should say, it'll help you identify your pain threshold. Because we all need to know that. So here are a few do's and don'ts I've learned since I made an A on my strep test:
Coffee? No way. Kills the throat.
Chips? Save 'em. Sorta feels like swallowing gravel.
Cereal? Same as chips but with phlegm-producing milk. Not good.
Diet Coke? Feels like cold shards of glass. But here's where I did not realize just how high on my List of Needs DC ranks. I am willing to endure the pain in order to drink it! At first I thought a sip at a time would do, but it is not enough. I have to guzzle this stuff to be satisfied! So for the last three days, I have had to take a deep breath, clench my fists, and suck down the glass shards. I feel like I'm gearing up to break six boards with my bare hands.
So worth it.
