We had a productive Sunday and did the house clean and grocery shop before a delicious dinner at Longrain. I had a niggling sore throat at this point but hoped the alcohol and chillies would see it off. Sadly by the time I went to bed on Sunday the throat was pretty painful.
Monday was a public holiday and we met up with Karly and Cam for lunch and I seemed to have turned a corner and felt better but by the time we got home at about 3pm I was ready for bed so I pretty much slept right through from then! I had the shivers and the sweats and had to sleep in my warmest jammies, Steve's ski socks and two duvets and was still cold!
So today I went to see a doctor. GPs work differently over here as you don't have to register to one and can pretty much pick and choose. However a consultations does cost $75 and you can claim half back. So for $34.90 Dr. Ben Teoh told me I have tonsillitis. My right tonsil is particularly inflamed with a nice big patch of pus on it (delightful). He grimaced when he saw it so I can only conclude it's not pretty. So that explains my loss in appetite (that is truly a sign I am ill) and the horrible pain I'm in.
Hopefully next time I blog, the antibiotics will have kicked in and I'll be happy again.
