tonsillar abscess

I'M SORRY.
but i just can't resist showing off my nasty. the diagram below shows the abscess in my throat. the very same one that prevented me from swallowing for an entire day. at first i thought it was just Strep Throat, so i went to the clinic to get antibiotics, and my lovely doctor informed me of my ailment and said that i had to go to the ER to get it punctured and DRAINED, or i could risk having it grow and prevent me from breathing. extremely terrified of going to the ER by myself, i left to get my perscription filled at CVS. i returned home with my syrup in hand and then proceeded to sit on the couch and endure the worst, constant pain I've ever experienced. i couldn't even sleep. i just had to sit there and drool and be sweaty from the fevers. so i called up my doc, and i said, "YO. this ain't gonna fly." so she made an appointment for me to see a specialist on friday to get this leech of an abscess removed. i just can't wait to eat again..

ONE MORE DAY ABSCESS... one more day...
