As It Turns Out…

I do not have the Flu. I have a severe Upper Respiratory Infection & Bronchitis. Which for someone like me (with no immune system) is a mere step away from turning into full blown pneumonia. Thus the need for stronger / better antibiotics and why I still feel like there is a 1000lbs man is sitting on my chest. Still Home. Still Sick. Nothing to write about. Stronger prescriptions are kicking my ass.

    Paisley: Not smoking is IMPOSSIBLE.

    Jodi: yes please, delivery of some home made soup is JUST what I need.

    ***Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I’ve been unconscious for two days in a row, which has helped alot. I am on day 4 of the antibiotics and have been drinking tons of water. I miss my peeps. I will be checking out all YOUR blogs tonight. ***

    …and don’t worry Leslie, the medications are safe for me, not like that last time… πŸ™‚

  • thank goodness!

  • Wow, sounds serious….and seriously painful. Do you still have a voice or it simple just being weak at the moment? When I get bad coughs, I go through an initial period where it sounds kinda cool (almost sexy), then it disappears and I’m the freak with lotsa hand motions trying to get a point across…and then I just sound like a man. LOLs!

  • Meleah


    I am at the sound like a MAN stage.

    Sounding sexy ended on Sunday when this all started with a sore throat.

    I feel MUCH better.


    No shit! whew!

  • Sorry you’re not feeling well. I was hoping for a full body x-ray though πŸ™‚

  • SO glad you’re starting to feel better, and wanted to say thank you! I’m flattered to be moved up to your every day reads πŸ™‚

    And enjoy the “sound like a man” stage. I had a male friend in college that said a gravely voice was probably the sexiest thing ever on a woman.

  • Hello Meleah,

    I heard you were sick with respiratory illness, and just wanted to stop by and wish you well.

    I hope you’re feeling better, an will be back to 100% real soon.

    Get well soon!


  • Meleah


    You have a GREAT blog. You write a fantastic spin on the whole dating scene. I truly enjoy reading your blog. In fact, I cant get enough…. I had to move you up on my list!

    Im so happy to finally FEEL better (almost a week later) .

    But, I cant wait to get my REGULAR voice back, that was raspy enough, I really sound like a DOOD.


    Aww… thanks DAZD is great.


    Ha ha ha ha

  • Get well soon! Daz’d sent me!

  • Meleah

    Thanks V-DUB.

    Dazd is one of my best blog buddies.

  • CRAP! I hope you’re feeling better very, very soon!

  • Boy is this bringing back memories. I have had exactly that nearly every year of my life up until about 3 or 4 years ago. Just susceptible to it. It’s in the family, and it didn’t help being around my step father who smoked four packs of Pall Malls when I was growing up. Good luck to you, meleah! I’ve had it for as many as 9 or 10 weeks, and then after beginning to feel better, relapse for another six. No pneumonia, though. Thankfully!

  • Meleah

    I am just glad I caught in time time and that its only lasting a weekish. I cant with being sick for a whole month again. Ugh.

  • HollyGL

    Hey, I hope you’re feeling better today. WATER and sleep and Vit C. ALL THE TIME. You’ll kick it out of you. xoxo

  • Meleah



  • Hope you get to feeling better soon. Get plenty of sleep if you can…will check back on you later. πŸ™‚

  • That totally sucks!!!! Don’t take any chances and get loads of rest. These things are very dangerous I tell you!!!
