Ever been sick and wonder what caused it? I’m not in any health program, so I’m unfamiliar to what is scientifically shown to lead to the symptoms of what is commonly known as “the cold”. 

I’ve only had a dry throat for 3 days, and I find myself pointing the finger to the ham sandwich I ate at Starbucks last week following only 3 hours of sleep. I know, from some of my Psych classes, that having a lack of sleep can lead to a weaken immune system, so it could be something inevitable and that the weakened state made it present itself now. 

Either way, this cold is surely going to get worse as my exams get closer… Worse timing ever. 

Current symptoms: dry throat & hoarse voice
