some time in January I picked up a bad cold with barking cough and aside from a brief week or so of feeling almost normal, I have had a cold/cough with me all the way to May. In the last week of April I was in hospital with an irregular heart beat. My cold/cough is still my best friend despite two courses of antibiotics. With some new heart meds in the miz, I am feeling a wee bit lightheaded now and then. All I want for Christmas is to feel normal, the way I felt normal most of last year. Five months of this shit is just too long.
