Breathing is harder when your lungs are full of mucus.

So you know when you blow your nose and liquid shoots out your eye?  That’s a weird reminder of the interconnectivity of things. I never really think about how my nasal cavities are connected to my eyes– who does, really?  But being sick brings it all to the front.  Like, I can walk up the stairs and be totally out of breath because my lungs are at half capacity.  When my nose is stuffed up my ears are blocked, too. And when my throat hurt, my ears itched, way on the inside where I can’t scratch.

This is how I feel.
