Fat Lot Of Good It's Doing Me

This cough has me playing everybody's favorite new game: "Is it just a cold, or do you have Covid?" It wakes me up at 2 in the morning and doesn't let me get back to sleep until well past 6, only to descend into stress dreams from which I wake, kicking at the walls and flailing at the covers.

When I go in for my obligatory Covid test ("You know other diseases still exist, right?" Katie asks by way of reassuring me) the nurse says, "Your blood pressure is better than mine." 

"Yeah, I do yoga," I say, before another coughing fit takes me.
