UGH: the current situation

Yet another reason dealing with the public sucks!  Day two of training and my throat starts to hurt and burns a little. It feels weird to swallow. The pain and feeling of my throat closing up gradually increases. Finally at home, aching ears, sneezes and stuffy/runny nose each arrive, one at a time, to join the party. Oh yay. It’s official.
