It sucks.

I can’t speak above a whisper today.  I couldn’t even sing along with the radio on my way into work, which really bummed me out.

At work, everyone seems distantly grumpy that I can’t talk or answer the phone.  I want to be like “Hey. At least I showed up to do paperwork. I could have just stayed home.”

But that involves talking.  Even whispering hurts- sending sharp stabbing spikes of pain all over my throat.  I drank some Theraflu Sore Throat to try and feel better, but so far I still feel pretty shitty.
I can feel the tickles of the coughing wanting to break free, but the two times I allowed it the pain was so excruciating that I started crying.  So now I just fight the coughing sensation, which makes it a bit hard to breath sometimes (due to the gunk build-up), but at least doesn’t hurt as much.

I just want this to go away.

I hate my crummy immune system.

      Thank you for the hugs and wishes.
      Too??? Does that mean you’re sick?? No!! I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
      I’m a talking sort of girl, so this lack of voice is particularly miserable…
