Getting Better. COUGH. No, Really - I'm Fine! COUGH!

So... COUGH COUGH I'm really feeling a lot better these days. COUGH COUGH COUGH. I'm dressed and showered and out of bed and I'm COUGH COUGH almost able to COUGH COUGH COUGH have a conversation without COUGH coughing! Isn't that COUGH COUGH COUGH HACK COUGH HACK HACK COUGH great? I even went to a COUGH COUGH meeting with Peanut's Speech Therapist and only got offered a COUGH COUGH cough drop 3 times! This is the first time I've ever gone through an entire prescription of Tussinex. I'm still coughing, but I refuse to spend more than 2 weeks of my life doped up like that, so I'm off the narcotic cough syrup and still sleeping upright on the couch and taking two inhalers and slowly getting better. I'm not THAT sick, I'm just sick in a way that is annoying to be around and annoying to experience, and I've been that way for 19 days. Not that I'm counting or anything. (Actually, I am. I'm totally counting so I can moan about how damn sick I am. My cough has now devolved into a totally non-productive yet HIGHLY annoying dryish hack that just won't stop. And sometimes I still cough so hard it makes me gag. C'mon - admit it... you SO want to invite me over, don't you?) And the saddest thing is that the above pretty much sums up the last several weeks of my life... weeks that I will never COUGH COUGH get back. I have been crazy bad about getting online, mostly because I've been napping instead. But I have high hopes for the next few weeks, so here's to spring and the COUGH COUGH COUGH return to some semblance of normalcy in my life!


  1. I hate that stage when you can see the end of the sickness tunnel but you're not quite there yet....

    Rest. Tea with honey and lemon is good for quieting coughs. So is Scotch. Pick yer poison. ;)

    glad you're (becoming) okay.

  2. Nap! Take the meds you need to take. Get better!! We'll wait :-)

  3. Hope you continue to improve!

  4. Whatever it is you have, my son had it, too. He got sick on April 18th and has just recently stopped all the coughing.

    I had a lesser version of it that I cured with hot rum toddies (dark rum/lemon juice/honey/boiling water.) After I drank the first one, I told my husband "this is the best I've felt in DAYS." It totally killed the cough and took care of the sore throat. Not to mention what it did for my attitude.

    Of course, I wouldn't mix it with prescription cough syrup. That would be a Flaming Moe, and you wouldn't be able to operate heavy machinery, like the TV remote.

    Get better soon!!

  5. Ugh. I know the cough you're talking about. I had that through practically my entire pregnancy with Hudson. It's a freakin' NIGHTMARE!

    Hope you're better soon! We'll be here waiting.


  6. Endless coughs seem to be one of the perks of being an adult - and that? SUCKS!!! I get that crap once or twice a year. Ugh! Get better Now please.

  7. You've made some good points there. I looked on the web to find out more about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.
