Things I Have Learned From Severe Tonsilitis

You may have noticed the lack of activity here lately. I’ve been under the weather for a while with a severe case of tonsilitis, but can happily say I am finally on the mend. It seems somewhere along the line I was taking for granted the simple act of swallowing my own saliva without it feeling like a million stabbing knives to the throat. {Insert dripping sarcasm reading tone}

So because I can, I decided to share a few learnings with y’all so you could benefit from my god-forsaken suffering new found enlightenment. Everything is connected in your mouth. Now of course this is obvious with all the same color going on in there, but I warn you, just because a single tonsil is swollen, doesn’t mean other things won’t hurt too.

  • A infected tonsil can resemble a gray and black storm cloud
  • Sneezing with a severely swollen tonsil will drop you to your knees in pain
  • A round of antibiotics will eventually cause itching no matter how much yogurt you eat
  • Cough syrup with codeine may taste like crap but the dreams that result are pretty cool
  • My husband is much too squeamish to take a picture of an infected tonsil but he makes a mean cup ‘ o soup.

In a nut shell talking, eating, drinking, all add to the initial tonsil pain.
So do yourself a favor…just ask for someone to knock you unconscious for a few days.
A single blow to the head would be far less painful in my opinion.

When was the last time you were so sick it knocked you out a few days?
