Floo Fighters

So I went to the doctor and she officially said I have the flu. I have a note and everything. She told me to stop taking potassium supplements because it can give you heart arrhythmia [oopsie], so it looks like it's Gatorade instead. It doesn't sound like a big thing, but electrolytes are nice when you're feverish and everything you drink comes back out your nose in the form of mucus. [I think I passed the 2-box mark on the Kleenex sometime Monday, counting from Friday. It's creeping up on 3.] So she wants me to stay home, rest, and NOT GIVE IT TO ANYBODY ELSE. Which is a shame, in a way; I've thought of a couple of people that I would dearly love to have it.

They also turned me down for my Depo shot because it's too early. I have to wait til at least Monday. This would be fine if it weren't for the fact that I've been increasingly hormonally unreasonable over the last week or so and was hoping to get it early to set me straight. No, their clinic policy dictates that no matter how soon your Depo craps out and stops working, and no matter how irrational you are, and no matter how badly you want to bludgeon everybody around you and chop yourself up into little pieces, you cannot have it any sooner than 11 weeks. [Of course, there's no law stating that I have to have my shot there...] Fortunately, this time I get to be insane mostly at home, where it won't scare anybody else. As long as I can hide my medications and razor blades from myself, I should be fine, though the weekend will be less than rollicking.

I want my stuffed skunkie.

same bitch time, same bitch channel...

Lyric for the day:
the abyss opens up
it steals everything from me
