Sick. Took meds. Fell asleep. Woke up. Took more meds. Can’t sleep. Coughing. Stress. Work later. Miserable. Oh god.
“There’s a phenomenology of being sick, one that depends on temperament, personal history, and the culture which we live in.”
[Siri Hustvedt, The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves]
