I wish I had a fever. If I had a fever I would have something I could point to. Especially because I'm told I spike fevers, generally, so I would have something dramatic i could point to.
Instead, I just feel like curling up and whimpering while someone rubs my neck. I make it through most of the day feeling sick but not wrecked, then I crash sometime during the evening. I am being melodramatic in my suffering.
It's a cold, much like the cold I had two weeks ago. It will last a few more days, I think. I will sleep a lot and try to stay hydrated and showers, oh yes hot showers, that has to happen.
But I don't have a number to point to to explain just how bad I feel.
