I'm ill - aching all over, blocked nose, sore throat.

But it's wierd - even though I feel physically terrible, I feel really happy, in a clouded sort of way.

One amusing thing is that I seem unable to recognise what would usually be considered the present. Everything feels like it is either a dream, or happened about 3 days in the past.

I think I shall combat this illness the way I combat all my problems. Through a total lack of sleep, excesses of caffeine, and music.

I'll also study quite a bit, as I don't want to get behind on schoolwork. Damn AS levels.

I wouldn't mind so much if it weren't for the fact that they just feel like "A-level Lights". I wish I didn't care. I really really wish I didn't. =(
I was really sick a few weeks ago, what you have but worse!

If you want to combat the illness, lack of sleep won't help. Your body needs to rest to speed up the process of recovering.
