I swear I have tonsilitis, or mono, or something. I saw my doctor who said it looks viral (of course the second I step into her office my throat looks awesome, just a little red), so literally there's nothing to do but "wait it out." This HAD to happen just when I was getting dedicated to exercise again. Is it acceptable to just...not exercise until I beat this? 6AM starts day 6 of **** in my throat.
Both tonsils are swollen, though sometimes one is worse than the other, to the point where all I've been able to consume is cough drops, mashed potatoes, pudding and water, and getting those down is hard enough. Swallowing at all feels like I'm forcing down shards of glass. So, naturally, breathing at all (especially at night) just plain ****ing hurts. I did do tae bo one day, but I've just been lying in bed since then.
What to do? I feel bad for not exercising or watching what I eat, but I'm not taking in nearly enough calories right now (and there's no way I'm making myself eat any more--it HURTS, man!) and just lying in bed .
I'm so tired, I haven't had more than 5 hour sleep in the last 5 days (I typically end up staying awake until 8AM and passing out for an hour), I'm hungry, my throat hurts, and I'm in the worst mood feeling like a failure. Should I at least try to do SOMETHING? Maybe just stretching?
