I am sick.
I have been working on a bunch of writing projects, but everything has come to a screeching halt because I’ve been quite ill for the past week. I’ve been trying to lay low so this doesn’t turn into pneumonia (which I’ve had thrice) or bronchitis (which I’ve had twice) — which is the typical outcome of illnesses that I can’t shake after a few days. However, just in case I do end up sicker (and thus, visiting a doctor), I’ve already started a list of terms I might need to describe my symptoms:
English: Respiratory illness German: Atemwegserkrankung
English: Pneumonia German:Lungenentzündung
English: Cough German: Husten
English: Sneeze German: Nieser
English: Lost voice German: Stimme verloren
English: Fever German: Fieber
English: Exhaustion German: Erschöpfung
I’d add more to the list, but I am too tired to do so right now.
