Damn You Ben Roethlisberger

I knew I was doomed when those schmuck NFL announcers insisted on giving report after detailed report of Roethlisberger’s appendicitis. I muted the TV, left the room, didn’t watch the Steelers games, but it was all to no avail...

There I was today, almost exactly two months later, (at work), minding my own business, when it came to my attention, (through agonizing pain), that I’d developed a severe case of good old appendicitis and my intestines were on the verge of bursting.

I didn't even know what appendicitis was until Roethlisberger came along; so, it's him I thank for the hysteria, and excruciating pain I experienced above my belly button today.

Don't you hate those sneak attacks? It's like, you think you are in recovery, and then Charles Gibson reports on an outbreak of Ebola in Zimbabwe, and you're all, "what the hell!?! I KNEW I had a case of the sniffles! Does Ebola start out like a head cold? I think it does."

SOB's.

I went to the doctor today, after I had a mini meltdown, cried, called my mom and got her so upset she went with me. Just started hurting all over, after having a pretty good week. Yikes!!!

Yikes is right! There must be something in the air - I think I'm on the verge of a meltdown too. I've been having a bunch of little attacks after I thought things were progressing.

Hope you're feeling better...
