Bronchitis and Diarrhea

As funny as that combination sounds...it's not when it's YOU.

This virus that I've had for the last five days originated in the depths of hell. That's the only explanation that I can think of.

I've been holding down the couch doped up on cough syrup. Breathing through my mouth. I can't sleep for the coughing, but I can't stay awake because of the cough syrup. I don't even feel like taking a shower today. Whoever is hitting me with a hammer has made sure of that.

I'll be back, soon. If you need a laugh...you should stop by and look at my hair. Even the dogs are giggling! ;)

I haven't had the pleasure but my wife did this year. ;)

Lynette said...

Oh to go to the depths of hell and back. And you poor hair suffering the singe of brimstone. Grab some baby powder or bath powder and shake it in your hair. It will give you a short term "dry shampoo" til you can move again.

PS you will smell good too!

Jessica said...

Aw, feel better soon!

Scandalous Housewife said...

I had a similar thing going ALL last week, only I mixed in a little (ok, a lot!) vomiting. The only bonus is the 7-8 pound weight loss! Woo Hoo!

Grant said...

I'm feeling similar to you, but with less coughing and the bonus of nausea. W00t - illness!

OH NO!!!! RLL I do hope you'll feel better soon....

Ashleigh said...

Feel better!

I'd love know what a dog's giggle sounds like. I think mine does it too but not sure.

:)

Jude said...

Oh you poor thing...that's one nasty combination. Hope you feel better really soon.

phd in yogurtry said...

Times like these I'm SO glad internet isn't contagious! Feel better soon.

Mike Golch said...

I have COPDcaused by brochitis and asthma.the runs well I have not had that pleasure in a long time.

Deb said...

Oh no!!! I feel your pain that is NOT fun! But, I couldn't help reading, "This virus that I've had for the last five days originated in the depths of hell", as: "This virus that I've had for the last five days originated in the bowels of hell."

I know, I'm sick. No pun.
Get better fast!
Prayers sent your way darling. :)

Bond said...

As I am reading this, I am at work...all achy, sore throat...feeling like c**p...

My bed is calling and it might just succeed

Brad said...

Sorry Sweetie - I wish I was close enough to come make you tea! Feel better soon!

Dawg said...

I'm sorry but I can't stop laughing, my employees think I've lost my mind (little do they realize I did years ago).

Girl I feel for you!

SkylersDad said...

That is a killer combination!

Inquiring minds want to know... Everytime you cough do you get scared a little poop is going to sneak out?

Diane said...

i actually think that's what i have - both. my chest is killing me and i'm coughing crazy. plus i can't seem to stay out of the bathroom. my boyfriend's having the same prob. we were supposed to go to ikea today to buy a lamp but had to stay home... :(

i hope you feel better soon! what kinda cough syrup are you taking? i need something to just knock me the f**k out!

Heff said...

That's one HELL of a combination !

Dr Zibbs said...

You're right. Funny.

Jay said...

That's a brutal combination.

Get better fast!

Dana said...

So, when you cough do you ... ummm ... well ... never mind! I do hope you are feeling better soon!

Gina said...

I had that combo last week. Luckily, I got to the doctor before it got too terrible. Feel better.

Akelamalu said...

Oooer that sounds nasty (covering my nose and mouth so as not to catch it)!

Sending you Reiki m'dear, hope it helps. xx

Bina said...

Not only does it sound terrible, it sounds scary. What could be worse than coughing up a lung and having to run to the bathroom and praying you make it?? Not much, I don't think.

I hope you get better real soon.

Jormengrund said...

Just think RLL:

Because of one, you try to cut down on the other...

Too scared to cough, and not really wanting to think about the other for fear of coughing once the "feeling" is gone..

Might just be best to leave things as they are?

Here's hoping you get better soon!

Oh, and for reference, I'm NOT one of the dads that gives laxatives to the kids when they're coughing.. That's a completely made-up story that only SEEMS true..

Jen said...

It's no bueno when it's coming out both ends. Even if it is only a cough. It sounds rough & rotten. I say, "Satan be gone!"

Feel better soon!

Fortune Cookies said...

"originated in the depths of hell"
Oh my! That sounds horrendous! Here's hoping you get to feeling much, much better very, very soon!
I had walking pneumonia and an intestinal virus at the same time once...I can certainly relate to the fear of coughing without first being...properly seated.
Be well, my friend! And I'm pretty sure I can round up a few blessed rosary beads from Catholic school days if you need them. I'm just sayin'...

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Oh my, I hope you feel better soon! Use this as a great time to catch up on all your trash TV!

Kelli said...

Hope you feel better soon!

nitebyrd said...

I hope you feel better soon, hun.

RiverPoet said...

CRUSTYBEEF said...

yuck. that sounds awful. Sort of makes you wish you could bottle the bug up and save it to give to your bestest enemy, eh?

Feel better soon!!!

vixen kitten said...

Awww, I hope you feel better soon. Want me to deliver some home made chicken soup?

I'm pretty sure not even a bad case of funky sick hair can make you any less beautiful.

Awake In Rochester said...

I was wondering why I never heard back from you.

Aw, that sounds like an odd combination. It's nice to see that you still have your sense of humor.

Well, "C" took my medical advice. But I'll send over some chicken noodle soup, and a thermometer. Sorry I only have rectal. =o0

I hope you are better real soon!

Jeanne said...

Do you cough hard enough to shit your pants?

(Sorry, that was the first image that came to mind, and I thought it might make you laugh. I'm truly sorry you feel so rotten. Kiss on the top of the head.)

Stacey said...

Learn to sleep sitting up!!!

I always find that if you take some NyQuil, fix yourself a Neocitran (sp?) then a hot bath. It really gets you relaxed and decongested!! I love self medication =D

Get well soon!
