I Love Being Sick

Clearly the title of my blog is an exaggeration. I hate being sick. Currently I have a lot of issues going on! If you don’t want detailed information on my sickness you may want to stop reading…

My roommate thinks I have pink eye because the same thing that happened to her is happening to me. One of my eyes is completely red and I woke up with it basically shut from eye crust. My tonsils are currently so swollen that the thing that is in the back of your mouth that hangs there is touching my tonsils, so that’s fun. Since my tonsils are so swollen it’s making it extremely difficult to even swallow. No worries though I’m still talking, so don’t think you have gotten rid of me yet!

I do feel really bad for the cold dorm right now, because since my nose is stuffed and I can’t really swallow unless I really think about I’m snoring extremely loud, but I can’t help it! Hopefully I can go to the doctors ASAP, because this is probably the worse feeling. On top of being sick I have my first Spanish test on Wednesday, so this should be fun studying for.

Anyway enough of my complaining, keep your head up everyone. It is only Monday after all.

Under the Knife

I’m an odd child. I love going to the dentist, even when I know that my teeth are hurting and they may have to do more than a cleaning. I love walking out of the dentist and having that clean teeth feeling, but yesterday the news I heard was something that I didn’t want to hear right now.

I went to the dentist not only to get a cleaning, but also because my back teeth are hurting. I kind of had a feeling it could be my wisdom teeth since almost all my friends at home are getting theirs pulled, but I didn’t want it to be. I was hoping it was just a bad cavity. Unfortunately it is my wisdom teeth. My two bottom teeth are coming in and pushing in on all my teeth. It hurts pretty bad, and so now I have to go see the surgeon in order to see when I can get them pulled.

Not only that my dentist thinks I need to go to the doctor because I keep getting sick and my tonsils are extremely swollen, so now I might even have to get my tonsils pulled. So much for summer plans I may just keep getting surgery! I’m not sure about my tonsils yet so for now all I am for sure about is my teeth! So in a couple weeks I will be looking like a chipmunk.

On a more positive note, the Forever 21 I work at is opening earlier than expected. We open on May 25th and now we need to hire at least 90 more people, which is insane! Next week I get to work in the new store setting things up. I’m so excited!
