At half term, I had a really bad infection in my sinuses, tonsils and chest. Over this weekend, my tonsils have become infected again. I've been to see my doctor who told me that I have chronic tonsilitis; and while I really needed them out, I wouldn't be able to have the operation on the NHS, as I don't meet the criteria for it. I feel so tired with it all, I don't get the chance to build myself up before the next bout of it starts again. I'm worried about needing to take time off.
