I'm not going to die. I can just see death from here...

I have now been sick for the better part of 3 weeks. I thought it went away last week before our trip, but it is back in full force. I wasn't shot up about going to the doctor because I know I have a bacterial infection which means antibiotics, but considering I can't raise my head off this keyboard, it's time to succomb to the health care establishment.

(I do wish I could go by my old job and cough on all the doorknobs before I get better. I wonder if I could get my friend to get me though security.)

I tried self-medication yesterday.

What's the one drug that will dry you out so much that you will even consider drinking out of the toilet if you just don't get water RIGHT NOW????? Benadryl.

What's the one drug that will make you so sleepy that your child can bite your face for 10 minutes and you will only wake up enough to seek assistance from your spouse before you are picked up by Family Services for throwing said child through a two-story window? Benadryl.

(I don't think you got the full affect of the biting. I definitely should have gone with the all caps --BITING)

What's the one drug that will send you into a sleep coma so deep that the distant roar of your 11-month old yelling his displeasure at his father for failing to read baby's mind cannot stir you? Benadryl.

That's some bad stuff.

Zithromax, here I come.

Yikes, woman....feel better soon. And I know exactly what you mean about coughing on all the doorknobs. Eee-vil.
But I like it!

Isn't Benadryl an anti-histamine tablet? I'm sure it's what I take when I get bee stings (slight allergy)...

Anyway, get well soon, duck

Ah Benadryl! Sorry to hear that you're so sick. All the great men are dying. I don't feel so good myself, which obviously has nothing to do with the good men who are dying, but it sounds good.

I hope you feel better soon. And I hope the chillens stop biting your face while you're down.

Zithromax is some good stuff - it's the antibiotic of choice in this part of the

I loves benadryl! I like to wash it down with a big glass of Chardonnay.

that benadryl is sounding good right about anything for a good night's sleep, i'll take at this point.

Oh boy - I need to wear a diaper when I take Benadryl. Puts me into a total will-sleep-right-through-having-to-go-pee coma!
