Do You Believe This Crap?



I can't believe this crap, but I got sick this weekend, AGAIN!!! Only this time, it's a doozy.


I'm pretty sure it's the Flu. I came home from the ER on Saturday afternoon with my Kidney Stone patient and all I wanted to do was lay down. I was exhausted. My body felt like hundred pound sandbags were weighing it down. When I woke up, I decided to take my temperature because I had that warm feeling you get when you have a fever.


Sure enough, I had a fever of 102 degrees. And body aches in my lower body like I had worked out a big workout. This continued for the next day. I kept dreaming that my brain was cooking in my head because reality is...it probably was. My fever never dipped below 101 for two days despite eating Advil like candy and I could hardly get out of bed. To top it all off, I couldn't get a hold of my doctor's office so I just decided to die a valiant death on my own.


So last night the fever breaks and now I'm left with INTENSE stomach cramps, so bad I feel like I did something really wrong in my life to deserve this pain.


So what do you think the chances are that this is Swine Flu and the chances of my catching this in the ER the first time I was there???


Somebody, please put me outta my misery.

Hey. Those krappy TV shows you watch are CONTAGIOUS.

I tried to warn you....

Awww that sucks. It never pays to be helpful. No good deed goes unpunished. Hopefully your kidney stome friend feels well enough to help you out.

The Er or Mexico. Or the fact that you see the public in your shop. I don't know, but whoever is responsible ought to be shot.

Hospitals are such irony. You go there to get well, and many times you end up getting sick because hospitals are a petrie dish full of germs.

I was in NYC this past weekend and all I kept thinking about was whether or not I was going to bring home bedbugs from the hotel I was staying at. NYC is having a bedbug blitz lately.

Hope you feel better. (You're not preggers, are you?)

I wonder how doctors stay healthy when they're breathing germy hospital air all day every day? I think there's something they're not telling us. Jerks.

What the hecks, Girl? You need to get healthy and stay that way!!! No more hospital visits, it's dangerous in there.

Get well soon, Candy!

That sounds just horrible, take care of yourself!

I doubt you would be symptomatic that quickly if you got it at the hospital. Still, you can make "your stoner" feel all guilty about it anyway.

Hope you get feeling better real soon.

Heff said it for me.
