The grippe

I've been down with a lung plague for about a week now. It's getting really old. Unfortunately, I passed it off to pyr8queen too. I can't move around much without starting a coughing fit that hurts all the way up to my armpits, and then kicks off a wild shooting pain behind my right ear. Because Herself has the Ick, too, she's coughing all night, which keeps me up on those rare occasions when I'm not coughing myself. So I shuttle back and forth between the couch and the bed, because the couch is freezing cold and a little too short.

So in short, I can't breathe, I sound like an 80 year old smoker, I'm exhausted, I'm sore and I have the constant taste of lung-taint in my mouth from hacking it up.

I'm done with this, yanno?

On the other hand, I've had plenty of time to play "Assassin's Creed 2" which is far better than its predecessor, and includes beautiful and detailed virtual recreations of Carnivale in Venice. Best game I've played since Arkham Asylum, basically - there are some control irritations that irk, but it lacks the repetitive missions of the original, and has a far more rich set of tools and tactics to use.

It might be worth it to track down a community acupuncture clinic for both of you -- you'll be pleasantly surprised at how effective acupuncture can be at clearing out ick.

I will actually probably continue to defer to science when it comes to my health. I am probably due to see the doctor, I'm just annoyed I'll have to pay out of pocket due to my crappy health insurance.

You got a fever! And the only cure is....

No. Not cowbell. You need antibiotics for that bronchitis + ear infection you are no doubt cooking up. Seriously- I just had the same thing and was told in no uncertain terms that it was not going to go away on it's own.

Four hours after the first dose of the Z Pack and I was feeling a LOT better. You, too, could have relief tonight if you just get yourself to urgent care and see a doctor!

No. Not cowbell.
But more cowbell is always the answer! *points at avatar*

But seriously, sounds like antibiotics would be in order. Feel better soon.

Damn, I must not have line-of-effect.

Get well soon.
