say ahhhhhhhh


bottom line
my tonsils 
 have absorbed
 as they are supposed to
 debris from food
 from bacteria
 but
 they seem
 to
 have been overloaded
 they're so small
 so small
 i never had them removed 
still dont need to 
but
 i do need to gargle
 with
salt water/peroxide mix
 to 
get the little white blisters
 to 
go away
 keep from recurring

 they
have been
are
 the source 
of
 my sore throat
 of
 my often squeaky sounding voice

now i have my very own ent doc 
who
 i like a lot
 as
 he not only reviewed my history 
before meeting me
 he listened
 even laughed
 at a funny i made

 he'd told me 
an antibiotic
 he was going to give me
 a 'script for 
should i need it 
was 
a pain
 in
the butt 
to take
because
 you have to take it 4 times a day

 i said
 no problem
 if it helps
 honestly 
unless its a proctologist
you're seeing
 its not
 a pain in the butt

 ha ha ha

  3. I'm so glad you've finally got a good result. Oh boy oh boy, I've had to gargle with salt/bleach mix. Yuck to the max, but I did it and so can you. For me it was better when it was cold water rather than warm and also when the mix was left overnight. That somehow made it more palatable. Cheers to good health and lift your glass girl. :)

  4. I didn't have mine taken out either and have never given them a second thought....until now. So glad you found a good doc who offered a relatively easy solution. Hope you feel better soon!

  5. I hope it helps greatly. My tonsils were yanked from me when I was five. I think it was just the thing to do then.
