The Fucking Thing is Back.
« on: September 02, 2006, 08:44:44 AM »
Shut the fuck up and listen.

Yup. I said "fuck". If the use of the "F" word offends you then I suggest you eat me.

At least I didn't say cunt.

This morning I woke up only to discover that the fucking rash was back. I'm typing this with my right hand because my left arm is so inflamed and swollen that I can't move the fingers of my left hand.

Jesus Tittyfucking Christ! It in my arsehole. Even my toes hurt. Nothing is sacred.

Which is kinda cool in an ogrish sort of way. My left hand is all swollen and cold and blue. It matches my bed spread.

Well at least the bits I haven't puked on.

The EM rash is back and the pain is pretty well unbearable. I can barely walk because my knees and hips feel like they are made of needles of fire. My mouth is full of oozing battery acid style blisters and my nose won't stop bleeding.

I would have a crap, but I dread to think what might result.

At this point in time I hate everyone. Especially WW's and Christians. I just need to vent. On a christian would be particularly satisfying. And here is as good as anywhere. Well it's not as good as some places, but it will do.

Well said, Ann. (Though threatening Matty with a spanking is like asking a kid if he wants another cookie.)

So Matty, do what Ann said and you can still have the spanking anyway. But later.

I think it works in one of two ways:

1) I can sit and be ill and miserable in the comfort of my own home;

or

2) I can sit and be ill and miserable on a horrid plastic chair in a ghastly disease ridden waiting room amongst bogans and WW's only to be sent home to a sitz bath after 13 hours.

I'm going to bed. And I defy anyone here to say they'd do different.

Matty, having to clean up your own puke before getting back into bed is hardly comfortable. Go where they can take care of these things for you. Do as you're told young man! Damn-it! At least promise me you'll ring Jennifer.

Matty Poo,

Listen up you A#&HOLE...venting is fine, but worrying the heck out of us is not. Your bleeding heart would be the first one in line to suggest treatment to someone else if the shoe was on the other foot. If you want to sleep in your own puke so be it...I want you to know it breaks our hearts to hear about it.

For the first time I find nothing funny in your gallows humor.

In sadness,
Hal :'(

Matty hon, I went to call you earlier as soon as I saw this, then suddenly realised it would be 4am your time, so I quickly closed my phone before it rang! (at least I hope I did! If I didnt, sorry if I woke you! ;D) That said, I will be calling you as soon as the hour is decent...I'm totally 'my own bed person' when I'm sick, I felt the same when I was in hosp with shingles, so I get how you feel on that score! However, I'm hoping that once you went to bed, if you woke up still feeling just as crap that you did the sensible thing and got your ass back to hospital. I know I know, nag nag!!! So bite me too! It's been a while since anyone nibbled on me... ::)

Matty sends his apologies to everyone for the tone of this thread.
(I'm sure what he means is: hes f**kin sorry for the f**kin tone of this f**kin thread!) >:(

I just spoke with him (which was very nice indeed to finally put a voice to the potty mouth!). He's still in a lot of pain and very swollen. He has seen a doctor who, from what I understood, told him he just had another attack and he just has to sit it out with painkillers. Well, I'm sure he wont be sitting it out quietly...!

He's having trouble typing with banana fingers...said something last night about texting me with his left foot!
So that's why you're getting this news from the monkey and not the organ grinder...

No doubt he and his left foot will be on here again in no time!

Incidently, the voice does not match the vicious character portrayed on here. Very gentle and sexy, aha aha! ;)
Yes Mattymoo, I'm OUTING you as a big soft pussycat!!!

Oh you poor thing! Have you started taking your meds yet or are you still being stubborn and heard headed? Are you drinking again, or is it still?

Hey Matty, I'm glad you saw the fucking doctor, but I'm sorry that more couldn't be done for you. At least you know it's just more of the fucking same and not anything fucking worse.

Hope the bananas turn back into fingers soon and you're feeling more yourself quickly. Please take care of yourself!

I wish I'd known this earlier so I could have dragged your sorry arse out to our spiritual home, Leichhardt Oval, to puke on a few Rabbitoh bogans for me.
You know the score - if you need a puke free bed, the company of a little itty bitty one, or just wanna get away studio 36 (aka HIV central) has a vacancy. you have my number

Hope you're better on this Sunday than you were yesterday, Matty.

Or at least well enough to get to church. I don't think you'd want to miss that. Right.

People keep saying you're going to type with your left foot. I'm betting that's not your left foot you're using but maybe it's because I attribute extraordinary powers to you. If you get my drift.

If the well wishes of friends can do it you must be swigging them down in a pub today. After church.

Big cheers,
Andy Velez

Hi MtD,
I am so fucking glad you called the doctor. I was worried about you last night. I hope those pain killers kick in fast. Can you still flip the bird with swollen, banana fingers? :)

Now, don't we all feel better after a good old fashioned cuss out? ;D

As my Spokesperson Melia ;) mentioned, I did see a medico on Sunday and he confirmed what I already knew, that it was just a recurrent attack of EM. Recurrences are unusual but not unheard of and can produce nasty lesions and swollen joints and what not.

The symptoms are now pretty much in remission. The rash is fading (again) and my all my joints have returned to normal size. The lesions (yes even the ones in my little treasure) are almost gone. I can walk and type again.

Oh Happy Day!

I see Frau Eva tomorrow at 1500 hrs (that's 3 pm to those of you who had a state education) and I should know more then.

To anyone who was a bit freaked out by my original post, I apologise. Matty the Damned was just having a frustrated rant and no frustrated rant is complete without pouting, screaming and profanity. The swollen joints I can deal with. The rash, well these things happen. The puking and the bleeding nose, just one of the many things one has to put up with.

But I draw the line at lesions up my bum. That's just not cricket. I'm fairly mild mannered and calm sort of queen, but painful diseases of the butt-hole just will not be tolerated. I decided it was time to have a all singing, all dancing tantrum.

Sure it won't fix the problem, but chucking my teddy out of the cot made me feel a little bit better. ;D

As for the christian thing, I can explain that too. After copping a so-called "fatwa" as a result of my David Hicks article on the Spin Cycle, I decided it was probably time to lay off the rug-kissers for a while and hop into the Jesus freaks.

They've been getting a bit uppity of late, and they're less likely to send me a semtex get well card through the mail.

MtD
