The word sneeze has three e’s in it

Thoughts

Monnie over at Vanilla Silence recently wrote a detailed blog post about her holidays that were otherwise fabulous save for a nasty bout of hayfever, so I decided I should talk about my flu thingy too.

COUGH! SNEEZE! SO HOT! SPLUTTER! COUGH! SO COLD! SNEEZE! BIRD! SNEEZE! WORD!

I was going somewhere with this!

After postponing going to the doctor for several days because doctors scare the heck out of me, I finally went this morning. Turns out what I thought was just hayfever or a common cold was the flu and a respiratory infection. I've got stuff to take for it now and I'm breathing easier already, though I still have to take it easier over the next few days. When I have assignments due and a family crisis, of course!

My mum put up with these symptoms when she was having cancer treatment for over 12 years. 12 F*CKING YEARS. Even now I still don't know how she did it.
