sickness is weakness

I detest being sick. I absolutely hate it. Granted, I could be more sick than I am right now - so I guess I'm grateful that it's only my throat and a headache that I have, instead of a stuffy nose on top of it, which would be the last straw. At any rate, I woke up this morning feeling like I had a lump the size of a golf ball in my throat. It's now subsided, I think, to something more akin to a gumball. It's still painful to swallow though. Norris had a great chicken noodle soup today, so I had a great big cup of that, and am now working my way through an Odwalla Strawberry C Monster smoothie. My question is: Is your body even capable of processing 1000% DV Vitamin C?
Maybe I'll only drink half of it. The weird thing about me is that even when I have a really sore throat I'm not much of a cougher. I do a really good job of just keeping my mouth shut and containing it, so last night when I was coughing a lot I was a little freaked out. But I think I'm getting better... I just need to sleep a whole ton this afternoon and tonight so that I can get going again for next week.

At any rate I'm always so angry at being sick because I have so much that I want to do and I usually end up trying to do most of it anyway. And then I just get more sick. So right now I'm going to resist the urge to do any kind of work and I'm goign to go curl up in a ball in my bed and sleep for four hours. The thing that sucks the most about being sick in college is memories of being sick in elementary school and how your family always did things like bring you soup and cover you with warm blankets. Here you just kind of.. do the best you can, when really you just want someone to take care of everything for you.
