Knocking Me And Now My Wife For A Loop


Just When You Thought You Were Getting Better

Not so fast


I am not done with you yet

Like a bully

Tossing me around

Having their way

I didn't start anything

You just don't care

You will have fun

The more I suffer the more pleasure you receive

I'm up all hours of the night

Then feeling awful during the day

Tired and exhausted

What is your game?

I wasn't good enough

Now you included my wife

Now that is going too far

You crossed the line

Both of us quickly passing each other

Like we were running for a train

All the food in the house

Looks like a wonderful rose bush

Each rose looks beautiful and different

Until you try to pick one

Then you get pricked with a thorn

Just one thorn hurts so much

You suddenly lose any desire to pick another

Meanwhile, you see everyone else with different colored roses

In vases on the table as a centerpiece

Loved and admired

As their priced processions

No thank you

I am struggling to make it through the day

Everywhere you look

It's one big celebration

My head pounding

It's like being at a New Years Eve party

With the worst hang over

Nothings ever right

Give me my pillow and my bed

All I want to do is sleep through the night

Day four and showing some signs of progress

I can still hear quiet rumbling

It sounds like it is in a caynon

Not too far away

Still not sure if it will create thunder

With it unexpected bad weather

Nobody will be happy

All is quiet now

I close my eyes and try to talk myself to sleep

I tried that earlier

With no succees

My wife has heard from friends

There is a bug going around

People have it for a week

There is not person who says

They haven't been a victim

At one time or another

When I get better

Making sure I am not teased and tortured some more

I will try my best

To tell all my friends

To stay far away from the meanest bully of them all

John Hansen You really understand how great it is to be healthy until you are sick. What a good reminder. I don't want to be here and I can't wait to be back to my old self again. Everything takes on new meaning. Food doesn't even look that appealing. I always love fruits and vegetables. It just takes time. I feel bad for you and your wife who already went through it. We never know what other people go through until we share our stories. Thank you for all your good and healthy thoughts. Here is too many better days. Off to work. The sun is out. Our stomachs are still sleeping. I am trying not to wake up the sleeping giant. Have a great day.

It sounds like you are both really suffering Dream On. My thoughts are with you and I hope both you and your wife recover from this bug soon. My wife and I went through the same about a month back. Hang in there.
