I found myself wishing, just briefly, that I was dead. I can't stop coughing and breathing is painful. My ears hurt, when I cough(i.e. all the time) I get pain in my head, back, sides and stomache(those last 3 are probably muscle strain from all the coughing muscle contractions).
And everyone I know who has/had it says it takes 3 weeks to go away. Shit, I'm only 8 days in. Just fucking kill me.
