Finally, I am done being sick. It’s taken nearly all month to get over this illness. The last two nights of being sick were terrible, since the moment I lay down, my nostrils completely blocked up and refused to budge for hours no matter what I tried to do. One night I sat up until […]

So the good news first? Two manuscripts of mine got accepted for publication. One yesterday and one today. On a role, baybay!! I just doubled my publication list in 24 hours.
Bad news? Woke up Monday morning with a sore-ish throat, which progressed to myalgias, arthralgias, cough, and by nighttime I had a fever. Tossed […]
