I'm late for Alex J. Cavanaugh's http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/p/the-insecure-writers-support-group.html. I know I come up with fantastic excuses because I'm talented at fiction, but this is the best one so far.
|Grown up Kristi is actually grown up Adrienne! See the swollen glands?|
When I was a kid, I thought I was drawing a portrait of my cousin all grown up. Now, I have proof I'm a gifted psychic. I was sketching myself. It all happened last week.
First my face looked like this.
My glands swelled up for a week! You know you look fucked up when the hospital nurse taking your temperature asks if you've been to West Africa recently.
I'm okay now,
...but I want to give a big F.U. to Kaiser Hospital. I've never had a problem with them before and I'm shocked. I was given the worst care. It took a whole week to get my blood test results back and then I had to have my mom and sister-in-law interpret the graph.
I don't/didn't have the mumps or mono. So, WTF? I can't even get my doctor on the phone.
I had a fever and my salivary glands stopped working, giving me a toad throat. My breathing was inhibited. All my doctor could suggest was if my breath got really short and/or I started drooling on myself, to call 911 or go to the ER.
Any suggestions on what this was?
