I have quite a lot of snot, a sore throat, terrible cough, and a headache from coughing so much. Yay. As long as I don't try to talk, I can go without coughing for up to 10 minutes at a time. If I lie down, or try talking - cough cough cough *hack* cough. Boooring.
I do think my body is trying to tell me something about workload & spoon levels, but I wish it would be a bit less cryptic.
