I'd like to write about all the exciting things I've been doing, but since January 15th, I've really done nothing. I've gone to school sometimes and spend a lot of time lying in bed.
It's not all grim because I am feeling a lot better. On Tuesday, I went to the doctor for a second time. It turns out I've got a bronchial infection, which essentially means my lungs are infected. This often times follows a flu and explains why I'm feeling the way I do.
Any amount of exercise leaves me feeling really tired really quickly. This wouldn't be too much of a problem, but it means things like running for the train are out of the question. Walking slowly to my train station isn't a big deal, though. It's just more time consuming.
I have a bit of a cough, but it's not so bad. It's a lot better than it used to be, which is good. The real problem is my voice.
I lost my voice sometime almost 2 weeks ago and it's still not back. I can make some crazy grunting sounds that are close to words with a little bit of pain. I can also whisper just fine, but having a conversation in whispers is really hard unless it's absolutely silent. Even so, my lack of ability to communicate on my own terms has been very depressing to say the least.
I have to give a lot of credit to my friends/former dorm mates. Yesterday, they had me join in a normal conversation, taking the time and patience to understand my whispers. It really improved my spirit.
Other than that, I'm feeling a lot more energetic and a lot more 'normal'. Besides the talking thing, I feel pretty decent these days.
Well, that's all I have to say now. Sorry for not having anything fun to write about.
