get over it

I'm getting over a cold that came upon me two weekends ago (about February 16). It started out as a sore throat, then expanded to include a stuffy/runny nose, plenty of phlegm and coughing, and a slight fever. The cold altered my voice into that deep, sexy radio voice that I enjoy having while I'm sick, but as of today, that voice is no longer with me. All that's left, now, is the phlegm, for the most part, and a little nose-stuffiness.

"Isn't a week a bit long to have a cold?" one student asked me. I don't know. Maybe. I don't run to the doc and get antibiotics when I get sick; for the most part, I handle colds merely by treating the symptoms, and those symptoms take a while to disappear. I gobble plenty of vitamins; don't know what else I can do to toughen my immune system aside from getting outside more.

In any event, this cold appears to be departing me, like a demon bored of possessing a victim.
