After not catching a cold or flu for over three years, I am sick again for the second time in two months. Moon Turtle brought this one to me from school. Apparently my immune system is still working great, as the only symptoms I’m having are a sore throat and fatigue. I don’t even have a fever. Though my tonsils hurt, they’re not too swollen and nothing weird is growing on them. I’m keeping an eye on them just in case, but I think I’ll be okay. I feel better than I did yesterday.
I wonder if that’s one of the things tonsils are for: virus targets so your throat doesn’t get damaged.
