Being Sick

Readers, I am sick. It started yesterday with a sore ear and throat. I went to bed, planning to give myself a sleep in to give my body a chance to repair.
 A storm woke me up at 5:15 this morning and I never really fell asleep again. I sort of drifted in and out of a painful drowse. I have had trouble swallowing anything since. Even my own saliva.
 I've got a doctor's appointment in about an hour, so hopefully they can give me something to perk me up a bit. At least some appropriate painkillers because the ibuprofen (being all I have in the house) hasn't done anything.
 My glands are tender, and there are two possibilities that I am thinking of. Both of which my sister had when I visited her two weeks ago. Tonsillitis, or glandular fever. I doubt it's the second, but even the first is kinda strange to me. I've never had tonsillitis. Bronchitis, strep-throat, sinus infections, even an ear infection when I was ten or eleven. But never tonsillitis.
 It also sucks because I've been healthier this year than I have in any other year I can remember. Why'd I have to break the streak now?

I'll be back with the doctors orders in a couple of hours.
