My strep throat came back, so I went to the doctor. He told me that it was a strain of strep that is penicillin resistant. So he gave me a non-penicillin drug. But that's not the one I love, he also gave me steroids to help with the severe swelling. I instantly feel better, have so much more energy, and feel like I can do anything! I know long-term use of steroids can be held on the body… But for today I feel terrific!!!!!

I had strep once and thought I would die, or at least wished I would, so I'm glad you have some great meds to get you over this.

I could use some of your energy so I bought sugar-free Red Bull.

That's great glad your feeling better. I used to get strep so much when I was young they removed my tonsils. I haven't had strep since I was 9.

 So true.  I was on steroids for a short time period, and I was surprised that one of the positive side benefits was a feeling of positive, emotion stability that I had never experienced before.   It was fabulous!

I can relate! I have lupus and when I take extra prednisone I feel almost healthy. I take 5 mg each day. Remember the old DuPont commercial back in the fifties? ( ok, stop with the math...) better living through chemistry! Drugs is good. Hope you get over it soon,

Sorry about your strep throat ( i hope once its gone it knows better to come back and mess with you) glad your drugs are working and that you have more energy, well thats a good thing as most theside effects are crazy! My drug of choice is wine and appitizers after the kids go to bed!
