These women next to me WILL NOT STOP talking about how SICK they are and have been over the last two weeks. It's FREAKING ME OUT. I actually overheard the words "got a hole in her diaphragm from coughing too much." Interpret however you like. "My fever was so high, I've been hallucinating and have had horrible dreams!" "I'm hungry but I can't eat anything, I just throw up!" "My stomach hurts so much that even walking makes me sick." "It takes at least three weeks to get over it." MAKE IT STOP.
Oh wait. It's 6 PM. It is stopping. Right.....now.
Oh, dear. Do not catch this diaphragm-ripping-fevered-dream-producing -vomit-inducing-painful-walking-cannot eat-making thing that's going around. Mmmhmm. If you do get it, go to a doctor, though. No, I'm not trying to make that decision for you now. That's your decision. But I had that last month, and I'm still not over it. Oh yeah, I had it so bad I was sleeping in a bathtub full of shaved ice while throwing up melba toast into a bucket full of busted diaphragms. Cuz that's all I could eat, but it wouldn't stay put. I was so humgry I couldn't even breathe! I coughed so hard I actually coughed up my- ok, I won't go there. tifanie | 02.04.05 - 11:12 pm | #
That has been going around my cast for the past month, and just as you get rid of it, you'll catch it again from someone else in a slightly differnet version. Gradually I think the germ is evolving, learning our weaknesses, discovering the holes in our (diaphragms) immune responses and learning how to control the electrical responses in our synapses. Soon I believe it will be too late, and we will be lost to the Germans. Germs, I mean. All hail Thrakmazog. Don | Homepage | 02.05.05 - 8:31 am | #
