It turns your repiratory system into
something akin to "clay", so when
you cough all that happens is like
two carpenter's files having a fight
Headache, loss of appetite, congested
sinuses, dry, 'itchy' eyes. Fever. Chills.
Just now, the aching in my musculature
is so extreme that I can't sit or sleep
without the aching lifting-me-out-of-it.
Didn't help that we had a storm today,
and I had to go out to move my car,
getting soaked by the freezing-rain.
Pneumonia can't be far off.
At least I'm conserving my groceries.
For goodness' sake, if you contract it,
=STAY HOME= to spare others.
