I woke up yesterday with razorblades in my throat. Given all the colds and flus going around, I thought it was the precursor to a lovely bout with that, but while the throat got progressively worse through the day, no other expected symptoms arose. Then last night, I had so much trouble sleeping as every time I swallowed it hurt so much I woke up. It was hard to even drink water! But still no other symptoms. Not usual. So I went to the doctor this morning and I have tonsillitis! I’ve never had it before, so no idea why I’d suddenly manifest it, but there you go! Feeling quite well otherwise, although a bit weary from last night’s sleep deficiency. Talking hurts, but I think I’ll be right to go to work – at least I’m not contagious!
