Perception

Last night, Matt and I had a small argument about whether I should go to the doctor or not.  I said that I was getting better and that the doctor probably wouldn’t do anything anyway or I’d end up on unnecessary antibiotics.  Matt said that my cough was driving him crazy.

I hate it when I’m wrong.

Anyway, I have strep.  This morning, I felt okay.  A little bit of a sore throat, but no big deal.  Then I got diagnosed with strep and suddenly I feel terrible.

So the question is this- was the feeling of health an illusion or is the feeling of illness an illusion?

(P.S.  According to Google, it’s probably still wasted medicine as I’ve had it already about as long as strep usually lasts.  So you are safe to read this without worrying about getting my germs through the computer.)
