Good afternoon from England,
It turns out what I thought was a cold coming is actually tonsilitus. Apparently since the glands in your tonsilitus and the ones in your tummy are the same so that stomach bug I had was actually in the glands going up into my tonsils. Tonsilitus also causes a cough hence why I have one.
I never used to get tonsilitus, however my brother did and he was supposed to have his tonsils out at age 12 if the frequency of tonsilitus continues but it stopped. My dad has his tonsils taken out when he was about 20 years old. So it”s not out the realms that I will have them taken out if my frequency of tonsilitius continues. Only problem is I rarely go to the doctors with it, so it’s not on file that I’ve had it as frequently as I have.
Currently, I have a fever, losing my voice, cough, sore throat and a headache but if we look at the positives my depression is at the high end of moderate. I think my body is compensating for the illness by making my mood better. My dad and I had a laugh about how I was the only person who could get tonsilitus whilst on antibiotics. But it’s that old saying “if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry”. So I am going to spend my day, in a better mood but ill – how’s that for cosmic justice?
Have a good one.
