Hello nausea my old friend
I'd like to make you stop again
The infection continues creeping
Down my throat while I am sleeping
Makes eating a real pain
It still remains
Despite the meds I'm taking

Fluconazole we tried alone
But still you make yourself at home
Vfend is gentle, but not as tough
A low carb diet is not enough
When my body says
You're spreading through my veins
Causing pain
And all these meds I'm taking

Just one more drug to try today
Please make this illness go away
Doctors talking without speaking
Doctors listen without hearing
Writing scripts that make me puke again...
And so I dare
To question the meds I'm taking

Doc, said I, you do not know
With Nystatin still it grows
Hear my words that I might get well
Instead of having infection dwell
Eating food should not hurt like hell
Please let's change the meds I'm taking

I'm sorry you have to deal with the thrush issues, but this cracked me the hell up.

That was sort of the idea. Although laughing fucking hurts too.
