Operation: Diagnosis

So I went to the doctor. My diagnosis? SEVERE Strep Throat. Exactly what I needed after surviving an 8 day stomach flu. My husband also went to the doctor for something else, and needs 2x daily meds administered by me (don't ask). My 12 year old son had 6 baby teeth pulled out today and has had bloody gauze in his mouth for much of the afternoon, plus obvious special diet. Three of my 5 inside cats have severe upper respiratory infections and eye infections and need twice daily meds and special food. Sound fun? It's not. Oh and my doc was THISCLOSE to giving me vicodin for my throat pain and then changed his mind. WTF?!

Doctor: "You want something for the pain? Maybe some Vicodin?"

Me: *nods enthusiastically*

Doctor: "Actually, Vicodin is too strong for your pain, I'll give you cough syrup with Codeine... which you can only take at night."

Me: *facepalm*

(he also gave me antibiotics and some rose-smelling Rx nasal spray... not nearly as fun as Vicodin)


So... all you're getting out of me today is 25 Stupid Newspaper Headlines, which are outside my usual routine, yet funny nonetheless. Now I shall take my Codeine Cough Syrup and pass out.

25 Stupid Newspaper Headlines

Editors, where were you?! Some of these headlines contain unfortunate errors. Others just could have been worded better. Either way, you'll be amused.

  1. #3 had me LOLing!! And shame on your doctor for suggesting Vicodin and then taking that dream away! How cruel. I hope you all feel better soon!

    1. I know! It was entirely cruel of my doctor to dangle the Vicodin carrot in front of me, only to take it away. I think he can only redeem himself by giving me an endless supply. ;) Thank you for the well wishes!
