RadioMD: What Illness Does Mollie Kendrick Have?
Nearly half the on air staff here at the radio station is out sick today, including me. I'm not really sure what I have, though, so I thought perhaps you could help me out by playing a game of RadioMD.
So you know how no matter what symptoms you type into WebMD, the site will always tell you something crazy or scary (often inaccurate) like, "you have cancer," "you have herpes," or "you're gonna die?" Well, I want you to tell me what I have based on these symptoms I'm having:
- Congestion in my lungs
- 101 degree fever
- Muscle/joint aches
I think everyone else out today have come down with the flu - I don't think that's what this is.
But you tell me - what do you think I have? No sore throat, no sinus congestion...That's it (listed above). Am I going to die? (Feel free to get creative!) (But I'm also half-serious - what do I have!?)
Quick note: Stuff like cancer, Lyme Disease, tumors, etc. should never be joked about. Neither should death, but let's be honest - I'm not going to die from whatever this is, so...Let's not read too far into my "am I going to die?" comment. Thanks.
Another note: Sometimes the symptoms above ARE serious, so please visit a doctor if you have those symptoms and feel medical attention is needed.
Also yes, the photo pictured is me after falling asleep on the couch with a fever. I woke up sweating profusely and had some MAJOR bed head! Yay, sickness...
By the way, HUGE thank you to Alana Lynn from our sister station, K99, for covering for me today!
