I am on the edge of a massive illness. So far, though, I have not fallen off the edge into the darkness disease, but for the last few days, my feet have been ice-cold no matter how warm I keep them, which I have now learned is the first warning. I have also smelled the second warning, which is an odor I can smell everywhere. Last time it was garlic. Today it's a rancid mildew. It's so strong I can taste it, too, so I have been chugging mints. I took some echinacea, zinc, vitamin C, cold relievers, and tried to keep warm. So far, I haven't gotten more than a slight fever, some chills, and I am exhausted, but I haven't gotten really sick yet.
