Glumness prevails

in these quarters: have spent last 2 days with lungs feeling as though someone's fist is painfully clenched around them; it now seems I am finally making the transition to the stage where they begin to sound like wheezy leaky bellows with much coughing and phlegm starting to be produced. Have been taking Mucinex, I think it's the only thing that has potential to help, but I am clearly off from exercise for several days more, potentially more like a whole week if this goes as my bronchial ailments often do, and it's making me incredibly upset! Trying to keep my cool about it, but not doing particularly well.

There is much work I could and should be doing instead of lying around feeling ill and upset, and I will start in tomorrow morning on a long-overdue essay that it should be I will enjoy working on once I've reimmersed myself in it. Slept for several hours this afternoon; I think I'm still just sick enough that challenging work would have been a bit of a stretch, but tomorrow should be more realistic for writing if not for anything requiring lung capacity...

Take care, the bronchitis this year is tough to defeat.
Get well soon.
