Hey, it’s working!

Yes, I look exactly like this, h8rs!

I’ve decided to stay unconscious until the worst of this is over. So far, it’s working. I’ve slept 40 out of the last 48 hours, like a Serengeti lioness. And it only took one dose of Night Nurse, two doses of alcohol and a serving of ibuprofen with codeine, spread over a two day period.

Oops, gotta go…I seem to be waking up.

I’ll set the Dead Pool up now, so it’ll autopost tomorrow, 6 sharp, WBT, whether I’m conscious or not. Be here!

Take 2000 units of D-3 every day to recover faster.

“stay unconscious until the worst of this is over.”

Long time ’til 2017, not that I think the worst will be over even then.

The last time I went through the radioactive bidness (about a year ago), I was really really sick (considering I had just swallered a couple hundred millicuries of radioactive iodine for the fourth time in as many years, that’s not too surprising), and I did the same thing–slept for the better part of three days, waking only to pee and drink. So I highly recommend that approach, even if you’re not radioactive.

Where’s your nose?

I got roaring drunk Thanksgiving day & woke up with a sore throat & it’s been downhill from there. Now I’ve got a pretty little sinus infection & spent all day up a damned ladder trying to saw bits of squirrel-gnawn house off. Bet on me in the dead pool.

Unconscious? But you’re missing all the fun. Like trying going to work in these icy conditions.

The sinus crud is here too. Been home from work the past 2 days. I did cheer myself up by watching the Buckeyes beat Michigan on the rerun. Just enjoy that too much!

If you’re unconscious you may not notice the handsome prince’s kiss.

Any self-respecting prince, handsome or otherwise, would need at least a fifth of Jack Daniel’s finest to come anywhere near me at the moment.

Downing copious quantities of Night Nurse (or one’s preferred adult bev) and staying in bed with the covers pulled over one’s head seems to be the most practical response, not only to Winter’s vagaries & ills, but the massive economical clusterfuck coming our way.

Feel better soon, Stoaty.

I’m suffering with a stinker at the moment. How can one head produce so much snot? The worst of it was my airway was so obstructed every time I fell off to sleep it felt like someone was holding a plastic bag over my head. Suffocating is one of my worst nightmares (literally) so I kept waking up in a panic. The most powerful OTC decongestants barely made a dent. Rhinovirii, I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee!

@David Gillies

We had the Slime Monster last Feb., it took 6 weeks to run its course. I’m mildly claustrophobic and like you the suffocating nightmare is my worst nightmare.

Elevate your head and shoulders so you’re sleeping on a wedge of pillows…it really helps.

Decongestants didn’t do squat for us, but we found relief with OTC Zyrtec 10mg twice a day(the generic version cetirizine is way cheaper) which is an anti-allergen and it did the trick.

Whoever’s up first lets them out and tosses them a handful of corn. That’s really all the lovin’ a chicken has room for.

The bedspread in that picture has my OCD in overdrive. I NEED to pull it up on the bed, properly.

There’s nothing quite like the decision-tree of a)choking down the lung cookie or b)hawking it up into the light of day (or dark of night,whichever) so that it can mock your feeble attempts at medicating it into oblivion.
