The common cold

It’s that time of year again… the germs and viruses are just starting to have their fun. And apparently they have chosen me. Ugh.

A cold (or the beginning of one) with cancer seems so much worse than just your run of the mill cold. I’m sure it’s really not, however my brain is somehow turning it into something else. For intelligent human beings sometimes our brains can make us think such irrational thoughts..

So I have a little cold and I feel fairly pathetic to be complaining about it. But my skin hurts… and that is making my incision hurt.. and my muscles that were moved or cut during the surgery hurt. So basically I hurt… and Tylenol and Advil don’t seem to do diddly squat. So I’m back to “ugh”.

And ouch. ???
