Friends, I seriously can't make this up. One day, I hope to write a screen play of all the ridiculous shizz that is my life. I swear sometimes it feels like a Modern Family episode!
I woke up today feeling like death. My chest hurt. My armpits hurt. I had what I like to call a 2 pack a day cough. It was ugly. Since Turkey Day is Thursday, I didn't want to mess around, so I made a doctors appointment as soon as the office opened.
When I got there I was greeted by a large sight that said, and I'm paraphrasing:
If you have a cough or flu like symptoms,
don't be an a-hole and hack all over us.
Put on this mask.
|I'm sexy and I know it.|
So I put on the mask, and of course I had to immediately post a picture to Instagram. It's what bloggers do, am I right?
I was quickly quarantined to an exam room. I didn't pass go, get weighed, or collect $200. The mask apparently is very intimidating, and others view you as an extra from Contagion or The Stand.
|Me and the hubbs having a laugh.|
I didn't have to wait long for my doctor. Who is a bowl of sunshine let me tell you. The woman looks like a fairy went through menopause, gained a good 30 pounds, and sports a grey pixie cut. Dare I say she sings her diagnosis? Well she does, and my diagnosis was manic bronchitis.
Let me type that again.
Of course I couldn't wait to call my BF and relay the news that even my illnesses have psychological problems. Which she laughed hysterically, and I tried to laugh but hacked up a lung. It also forced me to write this blog post.
Can I just say that now that I have the bronchitis, I really ain't got time for this?
Mentally unstable bronchitis aside, it's not that bad. Things could be worse. Like a bloggy friend of mine who posted a picture to Instagram this morning of her kiddos lying on the floor with a bucket.
I'll take my multiple personality bronchitis over the stomach bug any day.
|It wasn't so bad. My momma brought me my first red cup of the season|
Next time you all have a cough or the sniffles, know that your illness is probably relatively normal. Like the common cold or strep throat. Because I would guess that you are most likely normal.
Not like me.
My illnesses must have psychological problems.
PS: emailing and posting is going to be spotty at best.
This bug is a real bitch.
So if you need me - send me a tweet!
