Sick Week


It’s been a rough week. I feel like there should not be any bits of lung left for me to cough up and YET I keep coughing.

I’ve been asking for this cold since late September. I’ve been nonstop since then: conventions, conferences, travel, parties. NONSTOP LIKE HAMILTON NONSTOP. As it turns out, one’s body does not appreciate that kind of abuse.

Literally me.
Literally me.

I’d like to give a shout out to sugar and dye free Robitussin and these menthol cough drops. Also Vicks VapoRub, Sudafed, and tissues. So many tissues. I sound a lot worse than I think I actually am. I’ve holed up in my house. I tried to go into the office on Wednesday but I passed out on the train, so that was unfortunate. Working from home has proven less tragic.


I don’t think it’s so bad. I *hope* I am on the mend. Lying in bed, not doing strenuous things, drinking a lot of water: it actually helps. Amazement! I drank like four liters of water today. Is that enough fluids? More fluids? I will just keep absorbing fluids. Neil has been really nice about everything. I literally just want to stop coughing. Like how do I still have this much mucus inside me? I know it’s gross. But it IS GROSS. I really just want to be able to celebrate Halloween. I’ve only missed one Halloween in my whole life and I was like six and dressed in a bomb ass Cruella Deville costume my mom made me and I couldn’t even trick or treat! It was really lame. I am hoping that will not be the case this year.

I meant to write a review but my brain isn’t having it, hence whatever the hell this is. Expect your regularly scheduled programming soon. I’m just going to keep listening to the new Adele single on repeat until then. HELLO.

Until next time!
