Nine months of cold; what a strange and cruel joke. There was a time last winter when I would get excruciatingly sharp pains in my chest.Thankfully, it was not heart disease but something that often mimics one. According to the doctor, the muscles between my ribs were inflamed due to low oxygen intake. Ha.
It's gotten a lot better now. I'd like to think I can generally breathe for most of the cold months. Perhaps not today though, it is above freezing temperatures, for sure, but hardly the nice breeze I'd been kindly subjected to in the past few months. Walking to my classes though, have been a challenge. If not my respiratory deficiency, the wind would surely get me. I'm afraid that if I get any smaller, I might be blown away.
Perhaps I should just invest in a denser, comfier coat.
