This plague is horrible. I spend my time half-asleep, wheezing and trying not to cough. I've been trying to drink as much water as possible which also means that I'm constantly staggering to the bathroom. This is certainly the worst cold I've had in years. I guess that's not surprising since if there's one thing you find yourself avoiding as a shutin is communicable diseases. Maybe it's just been so long since my immune system has seen a virus that it just opened the door wide and invited it in for tea.
