so yeah, my tonsils are gone. a couple days ago, i finally had them yanked. my whole life, they threatened to pull them, but they finally came through on their threat.
someone was correct when they mentioned something about pain and throbbing and general gnashing of teeth (well, i’m not really gnashing my teeth because that might jostle my throat…). you know, honestly though, it’s not as bad as i thought it would be. don’t get me wrong…it definitely hurts, but i think i had it built up as the worst case scenario pain, that it certainly could never be that bad. i’ve been straight popping the crack…er, um pain killers like they’re skittles for the past couple days, so i’m currently typing in a state somewhere between mental clarity and botched lobotomy.
i’ll be interested to see how much i waste away over the next several days. i have yet to eat anything, so to all my anorexic friends out there, shoot me a line and we’ll compare war stories.
