And now, I feel I need to clear up something. I feel that I've been deceived. Lied to. Bam-foozled even. This is not acceptable. I have discovered a truth, and now, I must share this truth with you.
On television, when someone is sick with tonsillitis, they show them propped up in bed eating ice cream and popsicles and happily watching TV without a care in the world. This is not reality. I've been fortunate enough to get tonsillitis this week. [insert your jealous feelings here] This is how tonsillitis really plays out:
Day 1: Fever. Exhaustion. Vomiting. Very little to no eating. Drinking lots of ice water. LOTS and LOTS of sleep. Extrememly sore throat.
Day 2: Weakness. Fatigue. Drinking lots of ice water. Constantly clearning throat of "junk". Eating soft food like mashed potatoes. Extremely sore throat. Headaches. Some nausea.
Day 3: A little worn-out feeling. Stiffness. No fever. No nausea. Extremely sore throat. Eating soft foods. Constantly clearing throat of "junk". Drinking lots of ice water. HUNGER.
Day 4: Still a little sore and stiff. Constantly clearning throat of "junk". Extremely sore throat. Drinking lots of ice water. Dreams of mexican food feasting post-tonsillitis.
This is the reality of tonsillitis. Do no believe the lies on TV. It's not as glamorous as they show.
But, aside from the extremely sore throat, here I am on Day 4 and I feel pretty good. I'm even planning on re-starting my walking in the afternoons again. My sore throat doesn't feel any better at all, and I wish they would just remove my tonsils. But, I'm not a doctor, so what do I know. But at least the rest of me feels better so I can live with the sore throat for a little bit longer. Besides, I've lost about 7 pounds on the tonsillitis diet so hey, there's a positive. ;)
Anyway, thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway and thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes. :)
