    The Common Cold

    Stardate 4913.2

    Being sick sucks. It hurts work, play and sleep. Not only that, but it ends up runnig around the entire household, before it is finally vanquished.

    The Common Cold is one of the most prevailent non-life threatening illnesses that wreak havoc, especially when winter comes. The cold is a viral infection called viral rhinitis that includes nasal congestion, a clear runny nose, sneezing, headache and a scratchy throat. These viruses thrive in lower temperatures, thus it is more common to get colds in the wintertime, or when it is slightly warmer out and you do not dress appropriately. Sometimes, these viruses can infect the larynx or bronchial tubes in the lungs, causing more serious afflictions like laryngitis or bronchitis. Most colds last for only 3 or 4 days, but a bacterial infection on top of it can prolong this up to several weeks.

    Thank goodness we have all manner of medicinal tools to help ease the suffering of people infected with colds... There is no cure but we can take pills for congestion and runny noses, soothing drinks for sinuses and coughing, and any number of lozenges to ease the sore throat.

    I have a cold, and I am miserable.
