Depressing post for depressed people

I've got tonsillitus again. I had it last month too - did I mention it here then? I don't know.

Anyway, apparently the way tonsillitus works is on a buy 4 in a year get a free surgery deal. But, this is just the second, and yeah, it's basically only a month after I last had it, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm caught in some sort of weird pattern... it totally just means that I'll get over it this time and it will never ever come back.

My point, really, is that I'm miserable. Also, life sucks. I'm broke. I just got a new casual part-time job, but I did the math and that's not going to be enough to pay the bills either.

Everything is horrible.

In good news. I'm only three episodes away from finishing the S10 timeline. Yay! So, I'll probably get that done this coming week.

Also, in good news, I saw Mad Max: Fury Road on the weekend (just as my symptoms were starting to manifest, so before I got super miserable)... and it was a great movie! I had to pee really bad through the last quarter, but I still enjoyed it. It was so well done. I've read a lot of articles since about WHY it was well done, from the hero being the embodiment of positive masculinity fighting agains toxic masculinity... to how the filming and editing was all centre-framed to make the action easy to follow.

So, that's good...

Everything is still horrible though. What I really need is for someone to come over and make me lemon honey tea and then fix all my problems while I lay seemingly lifeless on my bed, drifting in and out of consciousness - sometimes, I might offer a witty rejoinder as entertainment, but other times I may just stare listlessly at my companion until my silence becomes uncomfortable.

My mum really wants me to come home for the summer still. And I really want to go. I'm not sure how I'm going to afford it... but, I'll probably go anyway. I need a vacation.

Long term, I'm having my doubts about whether I can stay in Vancouver. I mean, moving back home isn't going to solve anything either - it's just the difference between needing $2500/month to live and needing $1500/month to live....


I guess I'll just try to make it through the summer and then see how things are in the fall. Maybe I'll be able to find a full-time job or something equally miraculous will happen.

So sorry to hear this. :( If you need advice on tonisillitus, or fighting-the-system to get them to take your tonsils out, feel free to ask. I went through all of that the last 2 years.

And even though the surgery was rough, life is SO MUCH BETTER without tonsils. I am so much healthier and it's great.

Oh man, well I'm hoping to make it through the summer before needing surgery, but I may take you up on that if it looks like it's going to be a regular thing and for some reason they don't want to take them out.

Tonsillitus SUCKS!
