I swear tonsillitis not only makes one feel absolutely horrible, but it prevents me from doing several of my favorite things as well. Namely: eating, talking and kissing boys. (the obvious sex life implications glossed over for I am still a gentleman who insists on tongue to tongue before tongue to anywhere else). Anyway, yes. I am feeling utterly sorry for myself in a way that only the homosexual male can do. Thank the gods that tonsils are not required to type and I can still seek sympathy lamely on the interweb.

It is a good job I am not back in work until Tuesday, this gives me plenty of time to recover, but on the other hand, I can't really go out either. I AM SO BORED! It didn't help that the bin men woke me up this morning by being particularly loud. Usually I am not one to complain when a bunch of burly men clamor outside my bedroom window, in fact it is positively welcome under normal circumstances. SO, maybe expect more regular updates of a particularly self pitying Bent over the next few days. I know you will all love that.

Oh, and before any smart alecs out there get any ideas. It is definitely tonsillitis and not bruising, if only I were so lucky. Although the still unhealed carpet burns on my knees are another matter entirely...

aaargh, it's the worst, but if you are thinking of getting them out, think thrice times. Gos, I had mine out as an adult and it was so, so painful. Two of my girlfriends (not the sexual type) had painful forceps deliveries and their tonsils out as adults. Both said tonsils was wose than birth.

The worst part is that you have to eat Ice-cream afterwards apparently.

I HATE ice-cream :(

No you don't anymore. They give you toast and tea. Preferably brown, grainy bread. The idea is that (like using sandpaper) it strips away and small clotting or other crap that shouldn't be hanging around the wound. BUT it's ok, cos whan yu come round you have wonderful pain killng medication (usually an opiate), so you feel no pain. It's only after you get home , in the next 48 hours when it really becomes painful. And whatever you do AVOID chocolate. It is agony.

Do not have them out unless really necessary , my tonsil beds get constantly enalarged and inflamed since I have had mine out :(

I've had no problems in the 7 or so years since I had mine out. None of the infecions I used to get-even my colds are not as bad as they used to be; shorter lasting and never going to my chest. It worked for me.
