Giving in.

I've gargled, taken over the counters, used the rubs, the juices, the fizzes... you name it, but still woke up to the most painful throat ever. And by ever, I am now to the point of actively trying not to swallow.

So I give up. It's been 5 days. I'm going to a doctor.

and p.s. I don't like doctors. Or taking medicine. I'm much more of a "let it run it's course" person. But with a ton of work to be done, our trip next week, and now not even wanting to eat it hurts so badly, I figured I should suck it up and figure out what this is.

* another note- I realized that I don't have a doctor anymore (besides an ER trip which was actually an emergency, I can't remember a time since college that I've visited the doctor just because I wasn't feeling well) so I spent all last night researching doctors around here and fingers crossed I picked a good one.

She's already winning points given that I get to come in this very afternoon.

I'll keep you posted on the progress.
