I’ve had a sore throat for almost a week now that just keeps getting worse. I finally lost my voice this morning, though it’s made a partial recovery since breakfast. I think I really just need rest, but I keep waking up at about 6 each morning with throat pain. After that I roll around a bit trying to fall back asleep. I guess I should feel lucky that this is the first bad cold I’ve had this year, but I’d still rather just not be ill at all..
