Woman Fakes Ebola To Get Her Sister Quicker Medical Treatment

Woman Fakes Ebola To Get Her Sister Quicker Medical Treatment

One Ohio woman put Columbus emergency crews on high alert after she called 911 claiming that her sister had contracted Ebola.

The deadly virus is nothing to mess around with as it has taken thousands of lives in Africa and one here in the U.S. People in the states are living in fear of an outbreak as two Dallas nurses (one of whom flew a day before showing symptoms) became infected with Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan.

An Inner Monologue While Coughing All Night

I have barely coughed at all today, which means I’m almost done with this horrific cold, which means it shouldn’t be a big deal that I forgot to buy cough medicine and now all the stores are closed. I’m just going to lie down and fall right to sleep and wake up totally refreshed.

*COUGH*

No. No, no, no, no, no, no, noooooo. Keep reading »

The 7 Stages Of A Man Getting Sick

Right now, pretty much everyone I know is sick in bed with a cold, the flu, or some nasty stomach bug that turns your digestive system into mincemeat. Seriously, flu season is the worst. But did you know it’s particularly awful for men? That’s because men tend to react to sickness in very specific, very dramatic ways. Based on years of observations of brothers, dads, boyfriends, and friends, I’ve identified the 7 stages all sick men go through on their journey from first symptom back to wellness. They are as follows: Keep reading »

Dear Wendy...
"Should I stay with my sick boyfriend?" Read More »

I was on the way to the hospital when he called to arrange our first date. Sobbing, I pressed “Ignore” and tried to steady my breathing. I wondered if I would live to take him up on his offer for coffee — I’d blurted out “I only drink tea,” and now, I wished I had said something better, something nicer. I hoped I would have the chance to apologize.

A few days earlier, a guy in my film production workshop at college had rushed up to me after class and asked to speak to me alone. Having said maybe five sentences to him in my entire life, I couldn’t imagine what he wanted to talk about, but I waited anyway. He offered coffee, I countered with tea, he smiled sheepishly and said he didn’t drink coffee either, and I gave him my number. He departed just as fast as he had appeared, leaving me surprised and giddy. Keep reading »

Getting A Disease Has Never Been Cuter

Getting a disease or sickness has never been something that anyone looked forward to, but now you just might. These giant plush microbes are stuffed animals of diseases like syphilis, herpes, anthrax, and mad cow, which are only some of the many different stuffed diseases that are available. Giving someone herpes or the kissing disease doesn’t have to be such a bad thing now, after all it’s cute, fuzzy and comfortable to sleep with. These stuffed toys come in all different cells, diseases, and viruses, and while they make a great gag gift for a friend, they can even be a great get-well gift too. Now when you tell your friend “I’m sorry you have the flu,” you can give them the stuffed animal that goes along with it too. Happy sneezes! [ThinkGeek] Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Deal With A Sick Boy

Devil get behind me, it’s cold and flu season. Maybe it’s because I grew up with a mom who refused to categorize any of her five kids as officially “sick” unless fluids were exploding and the temperature hit well into the hundreds, but I am not the person you want taking care of you when you’re not feeling well. Conversely, when I’m under the weather, the first thing out of my boyfriend’s mouth is always an offer to rub my chest down with alcohol just like his Greek mama used to do when he was a kid. No, thanks!

I’ve found there are two types of patients—the cranks and the crybabies. I’m more of a crank. I want glasses of cold water, complete silence for the duration, and whatever medications I’m taking within arm’s reach. Don’t talk to me if you don’t want to get yelled at. Keep reading »
