colds and 'flu

"People who do not have colds cannot understand why sufferers from that affliction make such a fuss about it. People who do have colds wonder how they could have forgotten how terrible they felt the last time. Their agony is intensified by the fact that nobody takes them seriously. "It's only a cold; take some aspirin and go to bed." People who have colds hate everyone else in the world, especially people who do not have colds.
Andrea hated everybody, including herself. Splashing through the puddles in the supermarket parking lot, she listed her grievances in a silent diatribe. She had to do everything herself. Nobody helped. Or, if they did something, they made a mess of it and she had to do it all over again." Here I Stay, Barbara Michaels

I could not have put it better myself.
