And again....

Having enjoyed a whole month of good health, here I am again in my dressing gown, ibuprofen to hand, feeling very sorry for myself indeed. I did some research today on the internet (didn't feel much like working...) on getting a tonsillectomy. I wondered if this might solve the problem as I seem to suffer constantly with swollen glands and throat-related issues, but from what I have read it looks like a fairly horrendous procedure for an adult to undergo. One website even compared the pain of having your tonsils taken out with that of childbirth! I don't see how that can possibly be the case since they use a general anaesthetic and fill you with painkillers for a week afterwards. Ugh, the more I think about it, the worse I feel - I guess I will have to learn to live with a neck like Mike Tyson's, feeling pretty much like I've been hit by him too....

Ouch... I often get sore throats, but have found that if I gargle with warm salt water every night before bed, it works miracles! It's also good for your gums in general. (I used to work in a dental office.)Hope you're staying well.

Hahah! I had my tonsils out ofter my first year living in Italy. It is very very painful. But worth it. I am ill less frequently and I recover much more quickly. Oh, and I also came home for a month to have the procedure.
