For a few days I’ve been suffering immensely after a tonsillectomy. I can’t keep anything down, not even water. I can barely move. The meds are making everything worse and despite throwing up every day since my surgery they discharged me and I’ve been unable to do anything at home. Last night was so awful, we tried to take me off the strongest meds to see if I could handle the pain. I could not. It went up from a constant 4 to an 8/9 and I was crying. I can’t do this. I’m so exhausted, I’m just unable to do anything. And I have no appetite or thirst I just can’t. I’m so worried because I’ve been okay before the operation. I haven’t binged and purged in months. I haven’t restricted my eating at all. And now I just feel like my body is fighting against me. I don’t want to not eat/ drink. I just physically can’t
