I think I was in elementary school the last time I had a sore throat this bad. Every time I cough, it feels like my spine is going to snap in half or my brain is going to smash through my skull. There is a slight tightness in my chest. My breathing is fine, but I can see how this could be deadly for someone who has health issues.
My vision is especially weak right now, and I feel sleepiness, though I spent the last two days in bed sleeping. Tylenol took away the headache, and the dizziness seems to have mostly subsided.
I probably caught it when I shopped at Kroger Monday. I hope no one gets sick because of me.
