I have part of a voice back. I'm still coughing up my lungs, and I hardly slept last night, I coughed so much, despite Nyquil and cough medicine. At least the earaches are gone.
They haven't used the word "epidemic" in the news yet, but when they say "widespread in 49 out of 50 states" you know it's really going around. And that's just the cases where people actually see a doctor.
