Who else is sick?
I've been a ball of stress all damn week and it's finally taken it's toll. :-(

I'm on my second box of tissues. My head hurts. And I think I might just go back to bed.

Anyone else miserable?

1. Stupid allergies causing drainage, so my throat hurts.
But that's it. x(

2. Almost 100% except for
An ugly gash in the inside of my lip. It gets white, it hurts a lot and eating anything becomes an exercise in masochism. I get this every time I bite my lip, or eat too much acidic things. What's the name of this? In Portuguese it's called afta.

It doesn't impair my humor a bit, but this thread made me curious about (a) the English name of this thing and (b) how common it is in other people.

4. I think I'm done with the cold season
It took me out for a week last month. Fingers crossed (except for the middle one which I reserve exclusively for the BFEE).

5. Sneeze
I have a nasty, drippy, sneezy cold. My eyes are watering a lot too.

I'm all alone too, I wish there was someone here to make me soup and tea and stuff.

8. I've been battling pneumonia for a while now.
Edited on Fri Jan-23-04 02:01 PM by blm
The heavy meds they gave me haven't really worked.

Had chest xrays today around 11am. SC is so backwards, though, I have to wait till Thursday for the doctor to weigh in again. It's embarrassing. Cleveland was a mecca for great healthcare, and in LA you were never far from good healthcare.

Wishing I lived in a bigger town like Columbia or Charleston right now.

10. Coming down with something
Or maybe I'm just tired.

Interrupted-sleep insomnia was really bad last night.

15. I am.
I keep coughing and it won't go away unless I have some lozenges in my mouth. My lungs hurt too. I may be getting a case of bronchitis. :(

16. I had the Mother of all Migraines last night
It was the worst one I have had in 20 years. Violently painful, and made me wretchedly ill. I am sure it was the summation of a stressful 2 weeks, which had some resolution yesterday (new job). Now I feel great - strange how purifying they are once they subdued.

17. Me too!
After recovering from surgery and returning to work, I immediately came down with a surgury-related infection. Thankfully, it's not serious, and I'm on the mend.

Feel better curse10. Rest up and plenty of liquids.

18. I've had frigging dysentery or cholera or something
since frigging New Years. On the bright side, I've lost 7 pounds. On the bad side, I don't dare get more than 20 feet from a potty.

I am so sick of this I could screech, not that that would do the least bit of good.
