I Hate Being Sick
They call it "The Balad Crud" and seems to hit everyone within the first month of arrival. Can last 2-6 weeks (from historical reports). Mine started on Friday with a sore throat and general "meh". It's now moved to coughing (got some sugar-free cough syrup at the BX on Sunday) and today hit my sinuses (sudafed & tylenol were added to the pharmaceutical mix). Took a nap yesterday afternoon (instead of working out). All that did was contribute to poor sleep last night (I'm sure the sudafed also affected me since that stuff usually gets me as wired as a couple of cups of coffee).
