My Enemy, My Tonsils

Reporting from under about 3 feet of comforters. Again, I am sick. Always with the upper respiratory crap. I've got a throat infection so heinous that the codeine they gave me doesn't even touch the pain.

Sunday night, my fever was 102 and rising rapidly. When I shined a light in the back of my throat… well, I'll spare you the details. Suffice to say that I've rarely seen anything so gnarly, and I own three pathology textbooks.

So, E insisted on taking me to the ER, and I didn't really protest. They're treating me for strep even though the instant swab test was negative. Hopefully I'll have more info today.

Fuckityfuckityfuck. I am so weary of this. I don't care that it's no longer standard procedure for them to remove tonsils. I want the little bastards scraped!

FYI, Theraflu actually trumps codeine for ultra-severe throat pain, and it's a pretty effective fever reducer. Which reminds me: *passes out*

i hope you feel better very, very soon! i'm glad something is providing you with some relief. sore throats are no fun at all. (well, okay, unless it's a laryngitis-y thing that leaves you with a horribly sexy voice, but if it hurts, then it's no fun.)

ultra-spacecakey thing to think about when you're not horribly ill: have you tried doing any throat-chakra work, ever? i bet EJ could do some interesting stuff with that...

Well, I *am* prone to lots of nasty throat infections. I've had various healers and shamans tell me that it might have something to do with being unable to speak my truth. Dunno. You make an interesting point. *hugs* ... the non-germy, e-hug kind
