Sick sucks

I am trying to recover from a rather severe cold.

Over the past week, I have been suffering from a cold. I usually just ride them out, and one of the advantages of working from home is the ability to care for myself and still be able to make progress on important projects, albeit at a slight disadvantage to productivity.

Once or twice a year, though, I get sick enough to actually take medicine to (supposedly) help. Ironically, perhaps, every time I decide that I need to relieve the cold symptoms, the next day or two are just miserable. There is no good, scientific way to determine whether I am resorting to drugs just as the worst part of the illness hits, or if the decongestants are causing me more harm than good. [Insert preferred pharmaceutical industry rant here.]

The one thing that most of my really bad colds seem to have in common is that they tend to correspond with beautiful weather. After a long Michigan winter, the cold will hit hard on the first day with bright sunshine, or, as in this instance, it arrives on the last lovely day before the big cold front is forecast to drop temperatures below freezing.

Sorry, no major revelations about game development or design herein, but one needs to complain every so often to dissipate a foul mood.
