I have no concept of how murderously hot it is in Charlotte because I’ve been outside like four times in the past 11 days.

Holy shit, the excruciating pain subsided ALL OF A SUDDEN—I’d been told that would happen—and now I’m left with like three tablespoons of hydrocodone. LET’S PARTY

This day fucking sucked. I slept for three hours last night and woke up in pain again, so I couldn’t even enjoy getting stoned and reading the internet in bed because I’m so bitchy and overtired.
It still feels like I got punched in the jaw on both sides, there’s throbbing pain in my ears, etc. I’m not talking much at this point. All I had to eat was some chicken noodle soup, instant oatmeal, and a soft cookie.

Likely due to the influence of painkillers, it did not take long for this blog to descend into Pinterest levels of self-indulgence following my tonsillectomy. Did anyone notice that I reblogged a picture of blue ice cream today? Yeah, I’ve had more pure, unadulterated fun on Tumblr this week alone than in the past six months combined.

Not gonna lie, hydrocodone makes me feel like a, like a slice of butter… melting on top of a big ol’ pile of flapjacks… yeah.

Aren’t they beautiful? The nurse kindly took pictures on my phone so I could look at them as soon as I woke up. Surgeon said they were infected as fuck and larger than expected.

- 1: Did someone dress me after I woke up [from surgery]?
- 2: You dressed yourself; you wouldn't even let me help you. I think you said, "Get the fuck out" or "Leave me the fuck alone."
- 1: Wow.

my mother is really good at making other people’s problems about her… i overheard her talking about me on the phone like,
“SHE’S IN PAIN AND NOT TALKING MUCH” <—- shut up
“I JUST CAN’T WAIT TO GET THESE 10 DAYS OVER WITH” <—- shut up
“I FEEL LIKE A NEW MOTHER, YOU KNOW THAT FEELING? I WOULD RATHER IT BE ME” <—- shut up
everyone’s going about their business as usual, i’m in bed, it’s thundering outside, and she’s acting like this is a crisis situation. i know she just feels bad for me, but please chill out and let me watch netflix in peace. otherwise, i’m in a decent mood. my throat hurts but it’s not like I’M crying. i was up today and watched mayor nutter talk about the shooting on tv. i made fun of white men. i ate jell-o.
i should just check into a hotel and pay extra for the room service people to take care of me.
ps. i sent those quotes to kara and she said, “how is that a new mother feeling? as a new mother you’d rather be the baby? would you really rather be your own fucking baby? what?”

hejjmobejjmo replied to your post: I can’t wait to get my tonsils out in 2 weeks so I…
I might be getting my tonsils and adenoids out sometime in the near future, too….yuck.
Good luck to us both, then! I keep returning to this 18-year-old’s mildly funny account of his tonsillectomy. He says the throbbing pain “will bring you to your knees,” but supposedly it’s well worth it. Yikes.

I went to see my new ENT yesterday! Really nice guy, too. He stuck a camera up my nose, said my adenoids and turbinates (nasal tissues that regulate airflow?) are enlarged, tonsils are inflamed, I’ve got a deviated septum - the works.
He approved me for tonsillectomy with a turbinate reduction in five weeks’ time. Because I have a tendency to go along with whatever my doctors say so long as I’m getting what I want in the process, we didn’t discuss the turbinate thing as much as we should’ve. Like, am I going to wake up with a splint on my nose and two black eyes? He said recovery isn’t bad (tonsillectomy is a different story) and the operation will help me breathe deeper, snore less, etc. I’ll have to call and ask about that.
Anyway, I’m so happy to finally be getting my tonsils out. I told my parents I’m getting a nose job thrown in and they were like, “Don’t say that.”
