I live in NYC and on my train home tonight i noticed that i am not alone.
I have been sick now for 4 days with a bad cough and runny nose and all the familiar sick signs. I was out of work for 2 days, monday and tuesday and
wanted to go back today even though i am not feeling any better than the previous days. When i got to work, i was taken back by how many co-workers
were also out sick, more than half. Then getting out of work i wanted to meet up with a couple of friends so i called each one up. After calling 8
people and finding out ALL were sick i had no other choice but to start heading home.
On the train it was more of the same. As though a conductor was cueing the orchestra, the symphony coughed and sneezed and sniffled and blew into
their tissues. Not one dead moment of silence, all the time at least 2 people were playing their "instruments."
Now on to the bumps.
3 years ago a teacher of mine went on about why he was absent for 4 days claiming he had a huge, for lack of a better word, pimple. He said the first
day he woke up he noticed this pimple, which was on his ass(that sucks), and tried to squeeze it just like any other he has had in the past, but this
one was diffrent. Dispite his best efforts the bump grew bigger. The next day was more of the same as he tried again, now a larger bump, to squeeze
and put ointment on it...but with out any luck.
By the third day the thing grew to the size of a racket ball. The huge size of it made the skin around it and on it more painfull than anything he
had felt. He couldn't sit, he couldn't stand, he couldn't carry out his life, so he headed to the hospital. Upon seeing his docter, he insured it
was a bug bite of some sort and cut it open and drained that sucked, ounces came out. He was givin medication and told to keep draining it. He
stayed out for one more day to tend to the wound and returned the following day to tell his story.
Now here i am 3 years later at my girl friends apartment and what do you know, on her left arm a bump, just as discribed, my girlfriend being who she
is, said screw docters, took a pin and poped that sucker her self.
Right now i have a largebump, egg size, on my tummy and geez oh man it hurts. I am sick still with this shooting pain even if my shirt rests on it,
which it always does. I will being going to the docters to get it cleared up in the morning.
Is any one else having any of the above?
I mean i know its the change of seasons but, everyone get sick in the exact same week!? I can see the same time of year, or even the same month, but
all of us have become sick almost on the same day.
And i live in NYC as i said previously, its not the f'in amazon out here, how did i get bit as well as my girl friend who was also sick at the time
the bump showed up.
What could it be?
