I'm going through my first cold in a long time, almost two years I think. Sucks. Started getting the scratchy throat and sinus congestion Tuesday morning, before the drive back to Mass from Jersey. The sore throat lasted until yesterday and then the chest congestion set in. It isn't to the point where a cough helps and lots of green, yellow and brown **** comes flying out, so every cough hurts. I'd expect the coughing of mucus soon, especially after I started downing Robitussin like candy. I'm being semi productive at work, but I generally feel like ****.
Worst part is trying to stay away from my son. He doesn't need a cold this early in life.
