I've got a cold. Sore throat. Coughing. Sneezing. My head feels like someone has been inflating it with a bicycle pump.
This morning, with a bunged up nose, I sneezed. I was wearing my ear plugs. I could feel the pressure building up inside my brain. I thought if I opened my mouth that might relieve it. But no, it didn't.
So I took the earplugs out and I swear I heard the hiss of escaping air.
Please email your sympathy.
Try not to worry. I'll pull through.
