Because it is so rare that I get a cold or anything of that nature, it always takes me by surprise how miserable the "common cold" can be. I've got it all: low-grade (100.2) fever, chills, post nasal drip, and a phlegmy cough that wracks my whole body and causes my head to feel like it going to explode.

Being sick also brings cravings for childhood comfort foods. I REALLY wanted a grilled cheese sandwich, but I have no bread, and I have no cheese.

I found some (probably expired) Mucinex and 800mg Ibuprofen in my medicine box, so I popped some of them and am heading to bed.

Feel free to whine with me about your own ailments or other complaints!
