So I have been pretty absent from life these last couple of weeks and by life I mean the internet. Because life never really seems to really escape you even when you do your best to avoid it. I have spent the last four months in constant pain due to my tonsils being stupid swollen and none of the 6 rounds of antibiotics or 3 rounds of steroids did much to help that swelling go down. So After a long and tiring battle with our nations healthcare system I was finally able to get my tonsils out for a pretty decent price 8 days ago. I am very thankful and relieved that I was able to get this done finally. But I was not expecting the pain to be so bad. I was told by multiple people that as an adult it would be pretty painful surgery to recover from and to fill your freezer with ice cream because the cold will fill nice. But my experience was no quite how they described it would be. It was not just “Pretty painful”, it has been the MOST painful thing I have ever been through. Maybe I’m just a wuss, I don’t know. But I can honestly say I can list thousands of horribly painful things I would rather do than get my tonsils removed again. Thankfully I don’t believe they are going to grow back. As for my freezer full of icecream…It’s barely been touched. Because although I was told the cold would feel nice I have come to a far different conclusion regarding the cold. In fact I envision Hell as a completely different place now than a burning pit like we were lead to believe it was as children. Hell is a place where they yank out your tonsils and make you eat frozen things. So with that being said I didn’t eat for a week. Sleep was difficult as well, For the first few days I got about an hour of sleep a night. Last Tuesday night I ended up having to go to the ER (by the way it’s the busiest ER in the country) so as you can imagine I saw some pretty interesting people. However I just couldn’t seem to appreciate the sights around me because of the pain and nausea. Things got a lot better after getting IV fluids. I started eating (chicken broth mostly) and switched from prescription pain killers to advil (which works a thousand time better for me for some reason). I am still in some pretty bad pain but I think I am starting to feel like I’m healing. Last night I slept for 4 hours straight which was incredible. I am however hoping that over this weekend I get back on a better sleep schedule and that My recovery starts to drastically increase Because I start a new job on Monday and I am really nervous to work when I feel this badly.
Anyways, I’m happy to finally feel up to writing what has been going on. And I am thankful everything is starting to work out a bit better. I feel like my life is finally getting back on track and I am so happy about my life right now.
Can’t wait to eat tacos again…the wait is long.
