The past few days have been miserable for me. Saturday began a streak of nights in which I have not been able to fall asleep due to an incessant bout of coughing. This cough cannot be stopped; it's more persistent than my hatred of P. Diddy. NyQuil, Robitussin, even prescription cough medicine laced with codeine have been proven powerless against this disease. I literally will lie awake for 3 hours, with rarely more than 20 seconds between coughs. I'm exhausted, my throat is sore, I haven't done anything social in almost a week, my mom won't stop calling to check in on me, and I'm just frustrated at the whole thing. Last night showed a bit of improvement (I think I lay awake for just over an hour), which I can probably thank my antibiotics for. Here's hoping I make a full recovery soon.
