    Time For More Niquil

    I'm just going to sleep through the weekend. Nothing is going right, I'm dog sick, and it's easiest simply to knock myself out and curl up on the couch. I feel wretchedly sorry for myself and wish there was someone to take care of me and the house. Unfortunately, I'm the...

    I sound really weird.

    I can only whisper. This sucks, and my brother keeps making me laugh, which makes me sound like a squealing pig.

    The Worse Cold Ever.

    I came down with the worst cold ever the other day. My nose is cherry red and overflowing. I have the sneezes and I can't get the tickle to go away. I'm miserable. To make matters worse, I accidently spread a dust and pollen mixture all over my house so the sneezing is giving me...

    Snot

    I have a cold. Just the common cold. Nasopharyngitis brought on by the nasty little bugger, rhinovirus. Symptoms should last about 7 - 10 days. So, from my use of the ten-dollar words above, you can tell that I've researched the subject. Why? Because I'm sick and I have nothing...

    Second Time

    I hate getting sick, it is the worst feeling. My complexion changes and my voice changes. I end up with so many tissues all around me. The last time I was sick was at the end of November, at least this time I don't feel as bad. I currently have a sore throat, stuffy nose, and bad...
