Nursing Voices

Night Fever

I’m sick, I’m really sick. I’m nursing a fever for the third night in a row. Fevers make me crazy. I’m hearing two voices in my head; a histrionic voice and a rational voice. This is what the voices are saying:

Histrionic voice: This is it; I’m dying. I can’t breath, I’m coughing, and I can’t eat. I have a splitting headache and my body feels like it is on fire. Maybe I have pneumonia, or….maybe it is the bird flu. It’s the end of all mankind! Goodbye world, I’m going to those pearly gates in the sky.

Rational voice: You have a cold you big baby. Shut up and take two Tylenol and call me in the morning. Oh, wait; I’m me. Never mind.

I’m sick, and yet I’m blogging. What’s with that? I’m spending my night with my Mac and the Grim Reaper. Now where did I put that darn Tylenol?

MonkeyHusband has the same thing. You appear to be handling it better than he is. ;-)

Hope you're feeling better soon....

Agree with the hot toddy - it may not cure, but it makes you feel a bit better. Wellness soon. :-)

Have you ever watched the movie Stranger than Fiction? Will Ferrell plays a man that hears a english womans voice dictating what is going to happen to him. It's a great movie, your voices in your head reminded me of that. You should see it while you are on bed rest. Movie and chicken soup, it will definately make you feel better.

Hoe by now you're feeling better. Strangely enough, when I'm sick I actually prefer to have a fever. Somehow it proves to me that my body's on the job and working to cook the nasties out of me.

Hope you get to feeling better, Nurse Ratched, having a cold sucks. I don't get basic colds, I get bronchitus from Hades. I'll be getting the new stop smoking drug soon though, and maybe that'll clear it up. Keep blogging though =)
