“I don’t want to face a day without him,” she told me. She could hardly breathe and I could hear her runny nose through the phone. “I don’t want to go to sleep and wake up in a world where he doesn’t love me anymore.”
Until that exact moment, I had no idea that hearing others suffer was much more painful than suffering yourself. I let the tears fall down my face silently, but I made my voice stay level. “But you will,” I told her. “You will wake up in the morning, and he won’t love you anymore. But I will still love you. Your friends will still love you. Your family will still love you. And you will learn to love yourself. You will pick yourself back up, and you’ll become someone stronger than before. Edgier. Funnier. Just..better than the old you. And you’ll wake up in this new world, as a new girl, and you’ll keep living. Each day, it will stop hurting as much. You won’t notice it at first, until one day you wake up and there’s nothing to miss.” I paused, swallowing the lump in my throat. “You just have to make it to that day, okay?”

Sipping on whiskey sound way better
than holding your nose while throwing back a cupful of Nyquil? You’re
The hot toddy, a mix of whiskey, honey and hot water, is a
classic standby for alleviating cold symptoms, aka making your sneezing,
congestion or runny nose far less miserable.
It’s not just an old wives’ tale that a jigger of alcohol
can help people suffering from sniffles — science confirms that the
ingredients in hot toddies really can help to alleviate sore throats and
stuffy noses. Read more
i can’t stop thinking about what kind of criers dan and phil would be. i feel like dan’s crying would be a slow build up. his eyes just get watery at first, and he tries so hard to keep it in, but eventually the tears start cascading down his cheeks. he’d get a runny nose and his forehead would crease out of frustration because he hates crying, but he does it all the time. when his crying hits its peak, he’d be a blubbering mess, wiping furiously at his tears and constantly blowing his nose. he doesn’t like to be comforted while he’s crying, but when he’s finished and all that’s left is tear stained cheeks, he’d cling to the closest thing, preferably another person that would play with his hair, rub his back, and comfort him quietly.
phil on the other hand is a quiet crier. it happens really suddenly because he’s not afraid to be emotional and soft. his tears build up and he doesn’t try to hold them back. his eyes get red and puffy, and he tries to wipe away the tears quickly with his sleeve. he gets sniffly, but hides it by taking deep breaths through his mouth. his eyes are glossy and doe-like when his crying reaches the climax. he likes to be held the whole way through, even if it’s just someone holding his hand or resting a hand on his knee. physical contact calms him down and helps him feel more real. his favorite thing is when people rub their fingers up and down his arm, it nearly lulls him to sleep, but it distracts him from whatever it is he’s crying about.
A couple of months ago I promised my left nut @okamitaretsu I would draw something for her birthday. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything that could properly convey how much her friendship means to me.
Enjoy your stupidly late birthday present, Claude. Have a… -looks at smudge on hand- Runny Rose. She’s your Jaune Show OC, right?
Summary: You were sick but that did not stop you and Chanyeol’s hormones from getting the best of you two.
Being sick could be a pro or con depending on how you looked at it.
People could say being sick is a blessing, due to the sickly being able to stay home from school or work. They could have an excuse for being lazy, a break from being expected of doing their normal routines. A day to nuzzle into a pile of blankets on the bed, or the couch, and sleep. Not having to worry about anything but getting better.
People could also say being sick is a curse. The runny noses, the coughs, the throwing up and many other nasty symptoms the sickness came with. A day filled with several trips to the bathroom and endless doses of medicine wasn’t fun. People would rather be healthy and dealing with their daily responsibilities than bedridden.
However, You were of those people who believed being sick was a blessing and a curse.
