  1. I would guess onset of a cold because if it was aspartame, I’d be totally screwed. I finished off a 12-pack of Diet Coke in about two days (and that’s not counting the ones I drink at work). I have a very serious problem.

  2. mine signified a sinus infection. yuck.

    good luck in feeling better, and dont rub them, it makes them worse. I learned that the hard way.

  3. Oh my god, someone at work was all, “A nurse friend of mine told me that people who drink diet soda every day won’t even have to be embalmed when they die, because of all the aspartame!” And I was all, “Hey, I’m just looking to save my family some money on my
    ‘final expenses,’ as the daytime TV commercials say.”

  4. Mono is a cruel bitch. It almost knocked me out of my sophomore year at ISU. But I persevered with the help of some 3,000 consecutive McDonald’s vanilla milkshakes.

    Best of luck.

  5. I just noticed that two of your afflictions are communicable. Have you been mashing skull fronts with any Virginians we need to know about?

  6. With this showing up after coming back from the Big Apple, you may want to get that checked out.

  7. Sandy, the nurse friend left out that your pee turns to jello – and that can feed a nation.

    Will, New York isn’t India from which place everyone returns with the shits. I’m sure you meant to say that, what with the illness on the heels of travel, she may have picked something up from travelling, say, from the Big Airplane or the Big Airport or the Big Taxi.

    …either that or we’re now insinuating that le’story was doin’ a little bathroom-stall recon in the West Village or Lower East Side ’cause, like, that’s totally what the newbies do when they hit the Big Apple and insanity and swollen nodes are expected consequences.

    Why, lorie, you animal! You dirty, sick, animal!
    (get well soon.)

  8. I vote Scurvy. It’s my new go-to disease… you can get it from everything these days… especially from eating pizza left out overnight in the back room at the theater, and from stealing my windex.

  9. Wow… I have the same problem… I also have the same concerns. I’ve had them for three days now and had them since I drank a 2-liter of diet coke… But I don’t know… Any of the others are possiblilities too.!
