Down in the Mouth  
I hate, hate, hate having tonsillitis.

My pædiatrician refused to remove my tonsils when I was little, and as an adult it's major surgery (and mega-bucks) to have them removed. So, I go from mild sore throat to inflamed sore throat to uncomfortable cold to bronchitis to hacking cough before recovery. It's in the bronchitis/hacking cough phase now, which means little sleep and trying to catch my breath after every coughing jag.

And my COBRA has expired; so, I can't even go to a doctor for antibiotics. (And under no circumstances will I take Cipro even if I could go; that stuff ruined my vision.)

At any rate, at least Spring will arrive -- and a lot sooner before we'll ever see socialised medicine in this country.
