Imagine my body is a rain covered megacity. My cold is represented by millions of Agent Smiths lining the streets. Suddenly my immune system walks down the street ignoring the rain and the Smiths until he is in the center of a large street.

“It ends tonight.” is all it says.

last night I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t stop coughing and I was so very very tired. I have never had trouble sleeping when I was that tired before and I didn’t like it at all, I was almost to tears.

When I finally got to sleep at 5am this morning I decided that I have had enough. I’m staying home today and I’m not doing anything but sleeping. This cold is leaving my body today and I’m not taking no for an answer, I’m tired of being sick!
