No really. Remember those allergies I told y’all about? Well the congestion and drainage is all gone but I’ve been coughing for 2 weeks. I’ve taken Mucinex, Sudafed, Dayquil, Theraflu, Robitussin, and something else I can’t remember. I even made my own thyme herbal tea from scratch. And if you know me you know that I DON’T DRINK TEA. Sometimes the cough is dry and other times it feels as though there is junk blocking my airwaves and if I could just cough hard enough I could get it out.
When I cough I have to use the restroom. I feel like someone who should be in a commercial for Depends.
Here lately I break out into a feverish sweat and become so nauseous it’s hard to stand. I can’t sleep because I keep coughing and during the day I’m so tired and drugged up that I fall asleep at work.
I lost my appetite and only ate oranges for three days in a row.
I am drinking water by the gallons….but then I have to use the bathroom even more.
I’ve rubbed my chest, back, and feet with vapor rub.
I have a doctor’s appointment in 8 hours and I pray to the universe that he gives me a shot of something in my big butt to make me stop coughing.
I have my first night race tomorrow and I haven’t done any exercising in 2 weeks but I am determined to complete it….coughing and all.
Tonight someone posted an article on Facebook about natural remedies for whooping cough. I think I have whooping cough.
Thanks for visiting Diva (in Demand). My blog escapades have followed me across 4 states, 3 jobs, a business venture, and a new husband. There are no mini divas yet but I have loads of nieces and nephews to slobber and wipe their dirty hands on me. I am an amateur pastry chef, certified cake decorator, and seasoned home cook who knows how to pair French cuiseine with fine wine, collard greens and cornbread.
