What I thought was allergies turned out to be the latest thing going around, a viral upper respitory infection. As someone who falls prey to pretty much everything that gets about, I feel that this is one of the grossest illnesses I’ve had yet. I missed a day of work to it and spent the whole day feeling absolutely miserable. The worst part is when you can’t breathe out of your nose, although sore throats are no picnic. It seems to be going away, but I’ll be well-armed with cough drops for awhile just in case.
