Reading is fundamental, until your sinuses back up like like a freeway at rush hour. Turns out that breathing is fundamental.
update and bump: this just keeps getting worse. Crapola. I just had a huge doctory thing last week, what with the bloodwork and the general checking-up and flaaaaaayvin. I feel smooshed. This is going to be quite fun: I'm going back later today for a follow-up to discuss some of the results. I'm sure they'll wonder what I did in the past week to turn myself into a phlegm-filled zombie. When they checked me out they told me I was perfectly fit; now this? Did they replace my blood with used motor oil or something?
