The Sickness

No entries for ages as I've had the most kickass illness ever~

First there was coughing, pretty much non-stop, for about a week. Then with the throat being dead, I got a regular cold with lots of sneezing, again trailing for a week. The latest stage was worst, in two parts: first with the chest tightening so the air escaped the lungs, then the gas escaped the stomach, then everything else tried to escape, then it would keep on tightening while no more could come out, leading to great pain and curling up on the floor. Secondly, after a while the throat started to give up entirely -- after a while coughing it'd just close, and I'd find myself unable to breathe in either direction. Certainly the scariest cold I've had, no other has had me seriously worried about suffocating to death in a room of perfectly good air, just because my throat was tired of coughing~
