Stuck at home sick

Yesterday, I woke up and thought I was going to die. Well, it wasn't really waking up, I had been awake on and off most of the night because everytime I swallowed, it felt like I was trying to swallow either razorblades, or a fork sideways. I have tonsillitis. I haven't had tonsillitis for almost 10 years. Maybe I should have had the little buggers yanked out when I had the chance. My neck is swollen and I can't eat because it hurts too much. I feel somewhat better today. The fever is down and the dizziness has subsided. It felt like it attacked me in my lower back too, I was having lots of trouble walking yesterday. Thank god for penicillin.

So, I called in sick to work for the past 2 days. I haven't slept so much in a long time. Yesterday I would wake up, attempt to do something, like go to the doctor, have a shower, make a phone call and end up sleeping for another 2 hours or so. I spent about 18 hours in bed. That's a record for me. Today, I can't go to sleep at all. I would like to, but I just can't. I ate a granola bar. Maybe I can eat a little more of the sandwich I have in the fridge. I feel like I should be hungry, but I'm not really.

One of the things I hate about being home sick is I feel like I should be doing something productive, like cleaning or something. I just don't have the energy to do it. But enough of me whining, how's everyone else doing out there? Take care of yourselves.

I'm so glad you're starting to feel better, my friend.
Tonsilitis... yuck!! Maybe your body was telling you to get some much needed rest (18 hours - I'm so jealous)

Everything's great here in Joy's world... hope you're able to be up and around by now!!

That sucks, Trish. I had swollen tonsils last year. My throat was so sore I was crying and even crying made it hurt more.

I hope you're feeling better soon.
