I spoke too soon. I thought I was getting off easy with a mild cold, a cold I nipped in the bud with Vitamin C and Zicam™. Wrongo.
This cold has gotten much worse. I blow my nose until it bleeds. I coat my throat and chest with Mentholatum™ still thick fluid squishes about in my chest. My throat has been scraped with a cheesegrater. But I sound really cute.
