So I've got mono or tonsilitis they aren't sure and I'm super exhausted and haven't been able to play guitar in like a week or do anything really. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas to help the pain go away a bit, or to atleast give me the energy to pick up my strat for more than a minute. It would be a great, AMAZING, help because this all sucks, anyone else have any random ailments now or previous?

Get your strat and then lay down with it on your stomach. Eventually, you'll start piddling with it.

can you not even manage to sit down with your guitar if you prop yourself up in bed or something? i've never been that ill so i wouldn't know.
playing guitar usually makes me forget about pain like headaches/stomach aches etc but i guess if you can't play it that's of no use to you :P

If you have Mono don't expect to be able to do anything for a long time. I was knocked out for about 6 weeks with. It' s a bitch of an illness.

Guitars...you're right, that and I always find, I've played everyday atleast 3 hours a day for the past 4 months and before that i played for like 4 months and 4 or 5 hours a day atleast then took a break before the 3 hours a day for 4 months and I realized. It seems that if you play for so long your body stops progressing then you stop for a week or two and everything you learned over those 4 months sets in then you pick it back up and you're faster and cleaner and understand your theory better, so yeah, I just need to look positive, thank you Guitars

Mononucleosis and tonsillitis are two completely different diseases, dipshit.

Glandular fever is another name for it.
#12
yo saintsatan, i know they are different but first my doctor thought i had tonsilitis then it got worse so i had to go get blood tests for mono and they haven't gotten the results back yet

Mono actually is pretty awesome as a sickness. It got me out of having to do chores, and my teachers didn't care if I dozed during classes (strict attendance policy, so I had to go....). I had it for at least two months before I was diagnosed, though, and I had to miss the last few weeks of soccer season my senior year of high school because of it, since it makes your appendix or liver more likely to rupture... can't remember which.

Edit: Dammit, it's the spleen.

I thought I had mono for a whole year once, but it turns out I was just really bored.

Just be glad you don't have stereo. It's twice as bad.

...modes and scales are still useless.

**** mono, that's all I really have to say


Pay attention here...this is the only time I'll agree with anyone that has "Godsmack" in their name.
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

I'm surprised there haven't been any of the regular pit answers here.

I'm ashamed. We have become civilized.

I had mono for about 2 weeks. i came in thinking i just had strep or something, but the test came negative. They tested me for mono and it came back negative, so i went home. about 3 days later i went to the hospital at midnight because i could hardly swallow and was in a lot of pain. They gave me steroids and pain medicine which helped a lot, but they couldn't find anything wrong with me. I went home and then 2 days later i went to another hospital, because i couldn't swallow my own spit, where i got an mri and they found a huge abscess in my throat. They got it cut out, and then while i was in recovery they tested me for mono again and i had it, apparently the other tests were incorrect. worst 2 weeks of my life.
