I think I’m dying.

Having Dr. Google diagnosed myself, I appear to have, in no particular order:

Bubonic plague, but I haven’t seen any armpit blisters yet….give it time.

Encephalitis…which may actually be a stretch, but it does say that “symptoms include drowsiness and confusion”…I could potentially have had this for a loooooong time.

I think I have a kidney stone…don’t ask…it hurts!


Do you know how many diseases start with headache, nausea, body ache, and irritability?  I could have anything from PMS to Crohn’s Disease.

The only reason I have to keep living right now is because I got to see Twilight and am just aching to write what I thought of it.

It IS possible that the aching is just another symptom of flesh eating disease though, so waiting for confirmation.

    Um, I had those symptoms about 5 months about, and it turned out being fetus inhabitation.

    Maybe you are being parasitized by an alien who is intent on taking over the world. It could happen!

    I clicked on the comments, intent on being snarky and saying that it sounds like you’re pregnant. However, Brittany beat me to it with her “fetus inhabitation” – I laughed my head off!

    On a side note, when I was in pharmacy school, the running joke was that all medications have the same side effects: nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea. The same can also be said for most diseases!!

    Feel better. I had something last week and was positive I was dying. A week of antibiotics and now I am much better! BTW Dr. Google is never a good idea no matter how convinced you are that you have leoprosey-gangrene-itis it’s probably not that

    Who cares if you might be dying? I want to hear what you thought of Twillight! I’m almost finished the last book and can’t wait to see the movie but I’ve heard that it isn’t that good. Come on, I need the Anissa review. Get off your death bed lady!!!!!

    **Of course you know that I really care more about your well being than any movie but seriously woman. Don’t tease us like that :-)**

    Oh Girrrrrlllll, please- you are reading the comment of a girl who is a total hypochondriac. I can soooo relate to this. For me, headache= stroke & shooting pain in the arm=heart attack.

    If it is fetus inhabitation, we know that the kid (or kids if its twins or triplets or quadruplets or..) will be beautiful. You do have good looking kids.

    Any cravings? ice cream and pickles? peanut butter and jelly beans?

    Seriously, I hope and pray that you feel better fast.
