My head is buzzing. My limbs feel heavy. Whenever someone talks to me, or hugs me, their words or touch seem to sink into my skin strangely. Everything is slightly out of focus, fuzzy. I've taken all the vitamin C mum can force me to, along with gallons of tea with lemon.
I'm congested and it feels like it's not only my nasal passages that are blocked. My mind moves sluggishly; thoughts wander and get lost, cutting off abruptly. And this infernal buzzing! Why won't they leave me alone! Make them stop! How are the dead louder than the living?
