So in January of 2012 I had strep throat for the first time in over 20 years then the end of November 2012 I had tonsillitis (again first time in a very very long time). Then yesterday I notice that my gland is swollen on the left side of my throat, my head hurts, and when I look in my throat my tonsil is really swollen, red, and has white gunk on it again. This is exactly how the tonsillitis started in November! So tonight I plan on going to the walk in clinic to try and get meds before it gets as bad as it did last time (I put off going to the dr last time in hopes it would go away). One of my friends felt the need to point out that if I kept this rate up they may start talking about taking my tonsils. Sooo right now I am not a very happy person! I hope everybody else is having a better day than me!!
