Fever.

You know it all too well.

The heat that envelops your body. Your eyelids are heavy, aching, and warm, as though you hadn’t slept in days. Your skin is warm to the touch, but inside it means nothing. Chills surge through every single vein inside, sending you into shivers. You start to feel dizzy, the headache sets in.

You try to lie down. When you get up to take your medicine you feel groggy, and you’re almost delirious. Everything around you suddenly takes on a form of surrealism, and you’re not too sure if you’re just dreaming or if you’re really awake.

When you try to swallow, your throat suddenly hurts. The kind of swollen, sharp pain that you always get when you’re having a sore throat.

Then you lie in bed and hide under the duvet for comfort from the cold. But it doesn’t come. The chills don’t subside and you’re almost, almost shivering.

All this, until the paracetamol kicks in and you start to feel sleepy.

I’m sick.
