Ask him for a rain check on the date after explaining the circumstances. If he understands and agrees then great. If not then that's just bad luck and I hope you get better soon.

As long as this is the first time you've rescheduled, he should be understanding. You are probably disappointed to not get to go to something you were looking forward too. Just imagine how much better it will be when your feeling better and not infectious!

If the *worst community you've come across simply downvotes things they disagree with, I envy you. FML is pretty tame compared to most internet fora. Also, scroll through a few more FMLs; you'll see most of the top comments—most of the comments in general—are "real" advice. People only complain when others don't like /their/ advice.

Uhm, maybe just maybe you're getting thumbed down because your advise is terrible? You should never ever take anti-biotics without consulting a doctor beforehand. I'm not from the US so I thankfully don't have to deal with gigantic medical bills but it's incredibly important to get the right prescribtion. Things to consider are for example: What are your exact symptoms? Is the infection viral or bacterial or both? Is is just one illness or multiple? How many ABs have you taken over the span of a couple years? Which kinds and for how long? etc. ABs are not some aspirin you take when you feel like it. Taking the wrong kind or wrong dosis can have horrible side-effects on the long run (multi-resistant bacteria, loss of effect ...).

Fish Mox or any other medicine made for animals is NOT for humans. Human grade medicine is a more pure substance than what is given to your fish, it is also not the same MG. If you purchase it and use it yourself you run the risk of not only causing the virus or bacterial infection to become immune to your antibiotics, you also can become more ill with something else, allow your illness to progress to something like pneumonia or Scarlett Fever, and poison yourself with unknown substances. Amoxicillin or any other generic antibiotics can run as low as $4 a bottle. So unless you are looking to shell out a few grand for a hospital stay due to your own stupidity, stay away from animal meds and pay the damn money for your actual prescription. THAT is why you were downvoted. Not because you were trying to be "helpful" but because your are a damn idiot and could get someone killed by offering them something that they shouldn't be taking. Do you also suggest gargling bleach for bad breath because mouthwash is too expensive?

Also, going to the doctor is max $300 for a strep throat, that isn't exactly a "crippling doctor bill". There are places like Urgent care that are cheaper than a standard doctor as well. And if you have to go to the doctor so often then perhaps instead of offering others horrible advice that can actually harm them, you focus on your own health because you need to change something in your life, be it have a mold inspection done of your home/work place, or changing how you eat, whatever because getting that sick is not a good sign and continually pumping antibiotics through your system is literally killing your immune system. So focus on you, and let the rest of us go to a professional who has spent 7years and $300,000+ paying for their education.

Whipped- Just calm the hell down. If you're getting upset about people on an app not agreeing or understanding you, you might have a bigger problem than reoccurring strep throat. Nothing in life should ever get you so mad at people you don't even know.

you realize theres more to antibiotics and health than that. also youre not supposed to take antibiotics except as a last resort. people lile you are literally why we have superbugs. dont give medical advice youre not qualified. if your dr didnt work you find a new one not look for knockoff drugs online. they go to med school for a reason!

Way to kill your immunesystem and all. Who says you would get sick again if you dont take anything? Kill your own immunesystem but dont advice others to do the same. Also man tha F up because you sound like an emotional rollercoaster.

Also being thumbed down because it really has nothing to do with the FML. OP never even said anything that would suggest that they need any help with their strep throat, only that it cancelled their date.

First off: Over use of antibiotics causes increased numbers and strength of bacterial strains that resist medication. Meaning it doesn't work, which put millions of people at risk because you decided that self medicating was the best option. Second off: If you are having recurring not tonsillitis, there's this thing call surgery which can be used to remove your tonsils. Third off: If you are getting sick so often, then yes, you do need to see a doctor instead of chugging pills, because for all that you could know you may have cancer or be HIV+ or even have AIDS!

#28, you got strep throat FIVE times in a year?! I usually get strep throat and/or a cold/flu once a year or less when I'm introduced to large crowd and someone has it (i.e. returning to college in September). I agree with the mold/spores thing, either that or you have an awful lifestyle which is resulting in an awful immune system or because of the fact you're taking fish medicine and compromising your immunity?! Also, chill the fuck out! No-one even asked how to get rid of strep throat, you gave shit advice and that's why everyone is down your neck, you'll get used to that here! If you think the FML community is a bunch of pricks, join Club Penguin for a tamer audience...Or even better, 4Chan! You should write about how everyone is being mean to you here or post a selfie on one of their forums, they love that!
