Fever

The body is an amusing creation. It started yesterday morning with a touch of fever that was ably aided by an overwhelming feeling of exhaustion in the evening. Managed to somehow drive home and crashed into the sack with the latest self-diagnosis being that of a nasty sinus infection. This is one of those times when living alone really, really sucks.

Come morning, I was feeling feverish once again, with both the larynx and pharynx feeling distinctly molten and unskinned. Driving all the way down to Noida and surviving the commotion there was not an option. Called in sick and stayed on in bed. I am feeling better now, but I do feel very insulated, my senses encapsulated in thick membrane like fluids.
