Seriously?!?!?! How on earth did I get strep throat!? It was like pulling teeth to get in to see a doctor (because I was 99.9% sure of my self diagnosis). I have yet to set up a family physician for me and Matt... oops... The boys pediatrician refused to treat me because I'm over 18, my OB refused to treat me because I would be a hazard to their other patients while I was hanging out in the waiting area and the family doc I called couldn't see me for another week and a half because I needed to have a 'new patient' visit. So, I had to spend 3 times as much money to go to the Minute Clinic and argue with the PA because she was 99.9% sure I did not have strep. Turns out I did. She wrote me a prescription, I picked it up, went home and gargled some of this vile tasting gunk (which really helps though...) and am now going to bed hoping to feel better in the morning.
