And I'm sick in bed since yesterday with fever, cold, headache and general ache all over. It's hard when you're sick and you have to skip work to lie in bed and do nothing but watch mindless TV. Reading makes my headache worse. Anshuman is still at work and every little noise around the house feels like bombs going off in my head. I miss my mother fussing over me. The worst part about living so far is that at times like this I miss my family so much. I wish my mother was with me. I just spoke to her and she was making chapatis for my father. I remember her hands so well that have comforted me many a times when I've been sick. Needless to say I miss her and I wish she would hold me and tell me everything is going to be alright. In her absence I have to tell myself that. Everything is going to be alright.
