The work day was pretty tough, especially with the coughing fits inducing chest pain. The problem is that the pain is now on the right side of my chest and the upper muscles, and up into my ear. The cough is still there occasionally, it hurts to breathe, and I've got a bit of a sore throat. Or not, where the latter symptom is concerned.
In the meantime, I've been taking it easy since I got home, and am doing a bit of homework for tonight's Geology class, which I'm looking forward to attending. And yes, I intend to take it easy there, too, and not talk as much as I normally might. We'll see how that goes.
