It happened again, how uncanny.

I caught the grandmother of all colds and have been coughing up a lung for the past 2 days.

I actually dragged myself to work on Saturday, but in between hacking and blowing my nose rather unattractively, I felt like a nasty bed of virus. I came home straight after work, deciding that it was too cold to be anywhere else.

I got worse after that, and before midnight I had completely lost my voice from the coughing. I had to call in sick the next morning (and again this morning), and it turns out I'm not-so-superhero girl.

I'm staying warm, drinking plenty of fluid, staying away from coffee, eating three square meals to keep my energy up, reading in bed and sleeping a lot.

The new year has just begun but I am consoling myself that this bout of sickness is to properly get rid of all the toxic (people included) in my system.

Say a little prayer for me.

"Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters rise,
they will not reach him.

You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance. "
- Psalm 32: 6-7
