Because here I am, over 50, with a bout of tonsillitis combined with ear infection.
My biggest problem with it right now is the painful swallowing. It’s not just the tonsil/throat, it’s the stabbing pain in the ear when I do from the pressure of the tonsil on the Eustachian tube. It’s especially troublesome right about 3:30 am, when the pain medication wears off.
Fever, pain, and lack of sleep. Perfect recipe for being cranky, or having no filter and calling it like it is.
