And seriously? Tonsilitis is for 8 year olds. WTF is this?

My one tonsil is all swollen with white stuff on it and is surrounded by red. The other is just starting to turn red. Somehow I went all week without looking down my throat. I thought I just had allergies!

BOO.

Will I be able to work this weekend? :(

I'm going to the doc first thing in the morning. Hopefully it's fine but it's getting worse I fear :(

Ask the doc for the Z-Pack. Will knock that right out of you........

It's not always for 8-year olds! A girl on my course at uni was 27 and was off for two months with recurring tonsilitis. She had to have them taken out. It's quite serious as you get older though! I'd get them sorted ASAP

Mmmm puss. I noticed that as the doctor swabbed my tonsils today. It appears I havea virus which means I get to wait until they get bigger and swell down again. Sigh.
