No. It's not the Swine Flu.

But it is bad. Whatever the heck it is. I was STRUCK down (yes that is a very dramatic description but completely and accurately describes how I feel) yesterday with the flu from H-E-double hockey sticks. And this flu wasn't playing. For the the very sensitive (I'm thinking of you GM) I won't go into any major descriptions other than to say I have become intimately involved with my porcelain god. Crazy thing is that my mom got the same flu on the same day. And I think I know who to blame. My sister's in-law's came to visit from TX and brought with them some crazy flu which they immediately passed on to my sister and her youngest along with half of the other family. So now my mom and I are the lucky recipients and I think my dad is feeling yucky now too.

I hate being sick. HATE. First of all, I don't like feeling like I'm home bound. I want to lay around on my couch when I'm not required to be there. When you are sick you are required to lay around. And you know you are really sick when you have no interest in even playing on FB.

Secondly, I am a BIG. FAT. HUGE. BABY. And I'm not kidding. I'm a bawler when I'm sick. I'm a man-cold when I'm sick. I can't help it. When I feel like poo I just can't hang. And I want to be babied. But only when I want to be babied. The rest of the time I want to be left alone. And my hubby? He is a horrible nurse. He walked in yesterday and the FIRST thing he did was pick up the Lysol and start spraying every square inch of our house. Never mind that I'm already NAUSEATED and feeling like crap. Because Lysol smells so awesome! Every time I touched something he would spray it with Lysol. He almost got Lysol in his ear. Oh and when he came to bed? HE SLEPT THE OPPOSITE WAY. That's right. Feet in my face. I might have thought about becoming a kicker. Not only did he sleep with his feet in my face he then proceeded to flip and flop. I nearly lost it. So instead I snarled at him to be still. See? I'm fun.

I'm feeling better today but still all achy and a headache. Thanks for asking. Here's hoping by tomorrow I'll be back to my cheerful, snarky self.

honey, you let it fly. while i use dumb old-fashioned words, i don't expect everyone else to...AND...

i got hit in a bad way (yesterday too, what the world?!) and was SO mad that i almost wrote one of my friends who cusses every other word and just let it fly. every single bad word i don't say.

didn't do it yet, but if my head keeps pounding and i keep feeling nauseated and i don't stop coughing...you just might get an EARFUL! :)

get better. so sorry you're sick.

Girly Muse said...

so my comment sort of made it sound like YOU might be the friend who cusses every other word. i was NOT referring to you...but might include you in the list, since you know my pain. heehee

Lori, you feel free to cuss at me anytime you need. I'm hear for ya! :-)

I'm glad your flu isn't of the pig variety.

Tom is JUST like Bill. He wants me to take a shower and wash my hair every night before I get in bed because he's worried I'm bringing home germs from the hospital! All my fantasizing about being a nurse is so over. So, so over. I get faint just listening to them run down their patients for the day. And if someone comes in and casually mentions someone died, I almost fall out of my chair. I'm going to turn into Bill and Tom.

I hope you are feeling better soon. Germs are yucky (keep them in Minnesota, Miss Tinkle Big One)

Girly Muse said...

i think CALIFORNIA should keep the germs. it's only fair. you have everything else. it would only slightly even things out.

miss tinkle big one? hahahaha

I just read this today! Bree, I sure hope you are feeling better. Here's some well wishes coming your way.

As for the Lysol, that was my way of dealing with germs when I worked outside the home. Someone sick comes in my office, I Lysoled everything after they left. And if they used my phone, Lysol to the rescue. I think I may have gagged myself a few times. Michelle, I don't recommend doing this at the hospital though. They'd probably admit you and it wouldn't be in one of the "normal" wards.

Hope you're feeling better!
