I am sorry for my absence during the last week... it's not mere laziness on my part. For the last two weeks I have been having a strange throat ache that neither became something serious nor went away. Then it became a pervasive cough that first I thought was simply a response to my irritated throat. But this weekend (finally?) it worsened, and I spent the whole Friday and Saturday coughing all kinds of mucus and phlegm out of my lungs. Today I have decided to take an antibiotic and see if it helps - I dislike taking medicine, but my chest and head hurt from coughing and blowing my nose.
So now I am nauseated thanks to the stupid antibiotic but my cough has lessened a bit. Despite the fact I have done nothing today, I am feeling very tired.
