It started with a sore throat that I woke up with one morning. Since I snore, I didn’t think much of it until later in the day, when it wasn’t going away.
The next day I felt a bit better, if only a bit tired.
The day after that I felt worse, but managed to get through. The sore throat was gone and a bit of a cough was starting. A steamy shower felt far better than it should have, because it was temporarily clearing things up. But foods I normally enjoy didn’t taste good, and even with a raging case of PMS I did not want to look at chocolate.
The fourth day, the cough was worse and I got my sexy singing voice.
The fifth day, my voice was even sexier and I had a throbbing sinus headache. I came home early from work and slept all afternoon.
It’s been seven days now. My normal voice has mostly returned, but I’m left with the dreaded post-nasal drip. Those who have had colds (meaning every single one of you) know that this phase can last weeks. I’m really enjoying the random coughing fits, leaky nose and upset stomach.
Do yourselves a favor. Don’t get a cold.
