Cough, Cough, COUGH!!

I haven't forgotten about you all.  We've just been busy the last couple of days and this cold is killing me with the endless coughing.  I am worn out and exhausted from it.  If it doesn't soon run it's course I'll be heading to see the doctor, which is actually nothing unusual.  Nearly every time I get a cold I end up with horrible post-nasal drip that irritates my throat, tonsils and vocal chords and I end up coughing endlessly and with great force. 

It's not unusual to get a headache from it or to cough so hard I see stars.  It just sucks.  And life goes on whether that's my lung on the floor or not.  Yesterday I took Megan shopping.  On Black Friday.  Apparently, I am certifiable.  Today I'm cleaning the house before we bring in the tree and decorations.

What I really want to do is go back to bed, but there's no point.  All I do is cough and I can't sleep anyway.

I woke with a vision impairment, and my husband made me go to the ER. I have to see an ophthalmologist tomorrow. And I've been told to do nothing strenuous. Um, what's the measurement of that? So...I'm going to decorate a bit today. A bit.

I can't believe you went shopping. Did it clear any space when you started coughing???

:)

Have you seen a doctor? (I can ask this having just spent a little while getting poked in the eye by professionals...)

Oh, my goodness, Ellen. What do they think is wrong?? I'd be scared to death if I woke up to my vision being screwed up. My imagination would be cooking up all the worst case scenarios.

If I'm still hacking as bad on Monday I'll call for an appointment.

No....it didn't clear any space. Got me a few dirty looks, but that was about it.

Poor you! I hope the cough gets better soon. Nothing like sitting in the waiting room in the doctor's office.

Oh, not fun, Stacy! It seems like this time of the year with all the holiday stress and the weather, people get wiped out. I'm so sorry you're having a horrible time right now. Wish I was there, sitting and watching tea with you and making hot tea and honey for you to drink.
Hugs to you :)
