When it comes to my being sick when I was a kid…my mom always took very good care of me! Even when she knew I was faking it! Well…except for that one time…
But here is the thing about my Mom….she is smarter than any Doctor I have ever been to in my life. I can call her and tell her my symptoms over the phone…and immediately she knows that all I have is a hangnail….or I stubbed my toe!
But recently…I have actually been really sick. Flu kinda sick. And you know…you never really know if you have the flu or if you have a really bad cold. So…thanks to my Mom…and her ability to search the internet….I have more definite answers. Here we go:
12 Signs Your Common Cold Could Be Something Way Worse
- It’s not the usual symptoms
- Your whole body aches
- Your throat is on fire
- Suddenly, one ear is in pain
- Your cold won’t go away
- Your cough can’t quit you
- You’re throwing up
- You have bloody diarrhea
- You’re wheezing and short of breath
- You always get sick right about now
- You’re having a heck of a time breathing
- The cough is deep in your chest
- Your colds are predictable
Now…I am just throwing this out here…but if one of your symptoms is that you can’t count…what does that mean???
Anyway….If a usual symptom is bloody diarrhea and you are breathing fire…..I am thinking a trip to an ER or Exorcist is needed.
If you are having a hard time breathing…make sure it’s just because your wife doesn’t have a pillow over your face.
But most of the other symptoms seem to fit…so….I am thinking I am sicker than normal. So…guess I should get off of here and take some meds…prescribed by Doctor Mom!
