illness and 3 days to go

This is so weird, i havn't blogged in a while and it feels so unusual!

So, last fiday i noticed a lump on the right side of my neck. On saturday this had grown so much that i went to A&E in coventry. They kept me there for 3 hours, in that and another hospital, and decided that i had inflamed an "lymph node" and slightly inflamed tonsils.

I was given tablets, which i have been taking for the swelling, and they seemed to be working.

now, i have a swelling on the other side of my neck as well :S

Have i actually got mumps? No doctor has said it is mumps, but neither has anyone said it's not. i am worried.

and it had to happen in my final week! DAMN IT!

there was so much i wanted to do this week. Sunday i was meant to play in a brass band contest, but couldnt. was meant to stay out with the band until very late and go for a curry, but couldnt. was meant to rehearse with them and then go for curry, but couldnt. Was meant to go on the chemistry social yesterday, but couldnt. Now im meant to be at the music centre xmas party in leamington, but cant go.


so i am down to 3 days to go, and am really not having fun. I just want it to be over so i can go home and leave this behind.

i hope the doctor has something more promising to say to me tomorrow during my appointment.

  1. Don't worry too much about it. About 1–2 years ago, the right side of my neck became imflammmed. I went to my doctor about it and he told me I had a viral infection. Within a 4 days it had subsided without treatment. Just don't worry about it until the doctors give you something to worry about.

  3. Hows the swelling now? My housemate was telling me yesterday that when someone shouts alot or strains their voice too much, the lymph node can swell. Have you been talking particularly loudly recently?

  4. Oh, by the way, I did wonder why you weren't at the curry, did seem quite unlike you. Still, we have a term cram packed full of events for next year, so I'm sure u can make up for it then. Hope you fell better soon
