Oh, I'm the worst I've ever been. I'm blowing blood for 15 minutes every morning.

That's from the succubus banging your nostrils.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Zicam or Cold-eeze or any other zinc supplement, though at this point it'll probably do you no good on this round

Here's my timeline: On Monday, my buddy Albert has the death cold and drove my car. Then I saw you Wednesday and you coughs and snotted all over me and my car. On Friday, I started to get eh familiar tickle and immediately started dosing myself with zinc. I worked on Saturday and then (admittedly) basically stayed in bed all day on Sunday and Monday. Yesterday (Tuesday), I had a bout of sneezing and coughing, but as today progressed, I feel like I'm beating it.

So zinc poisoning.

Here's my timeline: Last Tuesday, symptoms develop. Wednesday: It's suddenly a summer day and we have a high impact, high stress move-in day to the biggest book convention in the world. Thursday-Saturday: I'm working the booth at the convention which sees 700 customers per day from 7am through 5pm without breaks or any substantial food besides hot water hotdogs and beer. Each evening, I'm manning an evening table from 6pm-11pm.

Sunday: 1:50 AM: I am unresponsive with a high fever for 15 minutes and almost get sent to the ER.

So I'm past the Cold-eeze phase. Dragging myself down to Kaiser today where my diagnosis will be: "You have a cold. Would you like a flu shot?"

Sorry, dude. That's just super bad timing. You had no time to lay low and be sick. That's one thing I've always done. If I'm sick, I'm make the time to simply rest. I learned that the hard way after a six week bout of.... something I had while living Chicago.

I seem to have no fever, though last night was another bad night of coughing and sneezing. Everything is coming up today, so who knows. It's tenacious.

Just don't ever start a fucking publishing company. Rule Number One.

So Kaiser's prescription was to take double the max dose of Robitussin CF for 48 hours and "see what happens."

I think the political debate shouldn't be about who needs healthcare but, rather, how this country actually defines "healthcare." I really don't need to be paying $200 a month to be flippantly encouraged to overdose on cough medicine.

Hilarity.

I told you about being in Prague where we got a cold and went to the doctor and they gave us a finger prick blood test to see if was a virus or bacteria. Missus RC and I thought it was some kind of alchemy, but the guy came back and said it was a virus, so no antibiotics. Missus RC still brings up when one of us is sick. "Why don't they have that here?"

Speaking of sick, I was waaaaay to presumptuous in stating I was getting better. Been coughing like mad for 24 hours and have lost my voice. Bad times too since I have to shoot five interviews tomorrow.

The cough/lost voice is where I was for 5 days.

Still kind of emerging back into humanity today. Yesterday was almost my first drug-free day, but I had to throw in the towel at bedtime. What a hell of a cold this one was.

It's brutal. Still coughing. Missus RC is entering the hell part of it now.

Day 12. This thing is so tenacious. The cough is unbelievable. I'm hoping last night was the hump. This morning, everything seems to be coming out of me.
