.......that I had to get out of bed to post here to keep from harming you.

Honey, dontcha' know that I am sick, too, that you had to take me to Urgent Care on Friday night because I was struggling to breathe?

Honey, dontcha' know that you came down with the same bug as me, but you didn't sit on the toilet violently barfing and pooping (sorry, tmi) for most of the afternoon Saturday? Barfing so hard that all my stomach muscles are extremely sore and whenever I cough it causes me pain?

Honey, dontcha' know every time you call me into the room and I ask "what?" you say "nothing, just want you here" I want to throat punch you?

Honey, dontcha' know that the meds that they put me on makes me unable to sleep and your tossing and turning, throwing your pillow on top of me, yanking all the blankets off of me, you snuggling up close and shoving your knee up my ass, makes me want to shove you off the bed onto the floor?

Honey, dontcha' know that if I have to listen to you suck on one more cough drop like it is the last drop of the golden elixer of life, I will shove the whole bag down your throat and choke you to death?

Honey, dontcha' know if you don't stop moaning and groaning, I will have to smother you with the pillow you threw on top of me for the umpteenth time?

Honey, dontcha' know if you ask me one more time for me to put my hand on your head to feel your fever, I will slap the shit out of your forehead?

Thank you so much, SI friends, for letting me vent here. I really love MisterSister. He is ill. So am I. I am trying very hard to be sympathetic and compassionate. He is just very demanding when he is ill. I know he is miserable. We both are. *sigh*

Don't worry, I will not harm him.

So, I stumble into the room at 4:30 AM hoping to catch a few hours of sleep. He asks me for a glass of milk. Okay. Give him the milk. He finishes it, I bring glass to kitchen. Back in the room. "Milkshake, can you get me a bucket, feel like I am going to puke!"

Grrrr! He doesn't want to get out of bed to puke? And I am supposed to lie in bed with him puking in a bucket next to me?

Honey, dontcha' know you are really pushing me over the edge here!

Ugh, hope you guys both get over this bug quickly, it sounds completely YUCKY. And that he comes to his senses soon and babys YOU and treats you RIGHT!!

I guess it's a 'convenient' time to be sick (yeah, oxymoron) since you must be all snowed in and can't go anywhere anyway, right??

Sorry, don't mean to be laughing at your pain. Or your snow.

Sending super-duper-major-league bug fighting MOJO over there. Cuz dontcha know you DESERVE it!

((((SMS & Mr Sister))))

hey jrc - surely you mean sorry you're NOT feeling well.......

Thanks, jrc and DeadMum. I managed a couple of hours of sleep, MisterSister never barfed, thank goodness.

I am exhausted but actually feeling better. Yes, perfect timing to get ill as the weather was going to keep us home anyways, although, MisterSister was insisting he was going to work today. He works outdoors, he was out of his mind. Worked called this morning and said everything was shut down.

I need to take a shower, change the bedding and get back in bed to see if I can sleep a couple of more hours, think that will do me a world of good. Thanks for listening to my vent.

MisterSister made it through the night without any bodily harm from me.

Why is it that men are such BABIES when they're sick???

Mine was sick recently...and so was I. But he was SO MUCH WORSE than me, and just couldn't get off the couch to help with ANYTHING at ALL because OMG HE'S SO SICK.

I asked him if he wanted to call his mommy to come take care of him, because I was sick too, and had an apartment to clean ANYWAY, laundry to do ANYWAY, and a dog to take care of ANYWAY, so I didn't have time to be his doctor, nurse, maid and waitress.

(((itainteasy))) Totally get you and understand and my deepest sympathies. I actually don't mind babying him if I am feeling well, but it just was too much for me last night.

Hilarious, brooke. Thanks so much. So true. I love Nick Frost, too. Perfect!

itainteasy posted 1/7/2014 12:03 PM


I'm with you 100%. If I feel good I don't mind taking care of him. But my God, when we're both fighting the crud, I want to be babied too!

*sigh* I'm so glad to be over it, now.

I hope you and Mister are feeling better!

Feel better soon.

We were both sick two weeks ago and nothing is more pathetic than two family medicine doctors who can't even help each other or themselves. And then patients ask us to heal them?!? Hell, I can't even heal myself!!!

SisterMilkshake posted 1/8/2014 07:31 AM

Thanks itainteasy and pj4. We are on the mend, the nasty cough is lingering, but we are on the upswing.

Hope you all are fully recovered and are at 100%. I am sorry you all were ill, too.

Hell, I can't even heal myself!!!
For some reason I found that comforting. (that we aren't being big babies, I guess)
