triple threat

Sick day, numero dos.

Today I felt like my eardrums were going to implode. Went to the doc-in-a-box. Walked away with three diagnoses (is that the plural of diagnosis?): ear infection, sinusitis, and bronchitis. Happy Freaking Valentine's Day to Mandie.

The remedy: drugs, a shot in the ass (the one that feels like they are shooting grape jelly into your hindquarters), a two-liter of Diet Coke, five free movies from the library, those tissues with the lotion in them, my sofa, and a visit from Charlene to eat dinner and bake cakes.

PS ... does anyone else have trouble with spacing on this blasted website?

please don't drink that diet coke. -this is said in total love for you and your dna.

a study was done in the UK on the chemicals and additives in products and diet coke has chemicals that have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it: they knock it out altogether. Some soda products also contain 8x the legal limit of benzene permitted in water (there's apparently no limits on sodas like there are on water).

how about a nice herbal tea? instead, sicky?

I hope you get to feeling better. I'll say a prayer for your. Also, I can't believe someone could blaspheme diet coke. It made my heart hurt.
