Apologies for being whiny.
Last night I started having bad sneezing and running nose, which I optimistically told myself was an allergy flareup. By this morning, it was clear that I have a virus; I was very week, freezing cold (though not running a measurable fever) and my nasal passages and everything that connects to them are a mass of ache. I feel like I've been run over by a truck. It was after 6 PM before I could drag myself out of bed to feed the puppies their breakfast. All I think I can hope for is for it to go away soon.
