Well, I am. Hopefully, the rest of you are avoiding it. This is my first real cold in several years; I had forgotten what they were like. If you don’t remember: they kind of suck.
But! I am getting better. I’m all wheezy and congested, but getting better. Just… taking it easy, that’s all.

In addition to the chicken soup, liquids, and dayquil/nightquil combo, I make sure to always have a cough lozenge in my mouth when I’m awake. Keeps everything open that needs to be open and shuts down the coughing which helps more than I ever though possible. A cheap giant bag of CVS lemon honey drops is a godsend.
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
Thanks for that earworm, Luke; I haven’t listened to the Eagles in years.
Hopefully you skip the swollen epiglottis stage.
Too late for me.
Epiglottis, or uvula? The worst bit for me is when I can’t breathe because my mouth is full of liquid and I can’t swallow because I feel like I am swallowing my uvula every time.
You’ve already gotten one story idea out of the ordeal. All our fever-dreams should be so productive…..
Turns out it isn’t the epiglottis, just some throat phlegm. Yechh.
