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.
