Fact: People are goddamn stupid.

I got my ass kicked by the flu (not diagnosed by PCR, had the symptoms.) and two kidney stones at the same time earlier this week and last week. I can safely report that 30mg of Vyvance every day did nothing to help with either of those.

On the other hand, two liters of Normal Saline delivered by an awesome nurse partner who was kind enough to start a 22ga in the guy terrified of being stuck with needles (yes, you can drink the irony in. I'll wait.), chicken broth, Tramadol and Ibuprofin did wonders.

Who needs the flu when you can be withdrawing from meth?

heroin makes the flu go away 100% its scary

And what is meth made from, kids? That's right - ephedrine, the active ingredient in cold medicine! Give yourself a cookie.

A small rock a day keeps the doctor away.

Well, meth addicts do typically look to be in the epitome of health.

what ever it takes.
I felt fine, then I didn't, then it was thursday.
If you have the flu, you can't make decisions really.  At least I couldn't.  I would've taken Drano if I was told to.

Actually it's probably easier to get meth than it is to get "over-the-counter" pseudoephedrine these days. At the pharmacy they keep it locked up, make you show ID, sign forms, and basically treat you like a criminal for trying to buy a box of legal cold medicine, even if you are very obviously suffering from a nasty bug.

Degree of difficulty: snorting the cure through a stuffed up nose.

Meth is a fantastic decongestant.

I heard.... from a friend....
 
2013-01-11 09:51:45 AM  
So, "Meth. Maybe once?"

While the plural of anecdote is not data, both my wife and I were sick with flu-like symptoms and our Vyvance (40 and 50mg) didn't help with it one bit either.

I've seen and heard this reference before.

Whats the deal with Chewbacca and the Mets? Anyone help me out here?
 
2013-01-11 10:11:30 AM  
Yeah but Chewy can hit that long ball. Okay maybe not that often, but when he hits it he breaks a window in Philly.

Meth may not cure the flu but if you take enough of it you won't give a shiat if you have the flu.

Bronkaid is the best stuff for congestion (ear/nose/etc.). I always tell people that might have bad allergies or are getting sick to take Bronkaid, drink lots of water and take one of those Vitamin C super pack things..It has ephedrine..which is used to make meth...so yea, I'm sure I get the correlation.

Wait.... you can get a chicken broth IV?

I guess the ADHD market is maxed out.

Yeah, death will also cure the flu, but I hear that some people can't tolerate the side effects.
 
2013-01-11 08:49:43 PM  
Why do they keep saying that this year's flu shot is a good match when like everyone who got the shot got sick?
 
2013-01-12 04:26:44 AM  
Well, if you're dead, that's pretty much a 100% chance cure for the flu.....
 
2013-01-12 10:33:56 AM  
That would explain why meth addicts always look so healthy.

Before: barely there, probably had the flu.
After: Ready to take on the world.
