Go Away, Cough!

Dear Diary

 
It's a new week and I'm alive. Despite my lungs trying to murder me the last two weeks with a terrible case of bronchitis, I made it. However, this damn cough isn't going anywhere. It's the worst sounding, most hacking, thick with phlegm gross disgusting cough I've ever had. You know that cough that you can almost see it's so viscous? You know like when you're on a bus or plane with someone who's coughing like that you immediately feel like you've caught whatever gross disease it is that they've got? You know, the type of cough only someone who's been a smoker for 20 years should have? Yep. I've got that cough and it's awful. Even worse than how gross it sounds is how terrible it feels. I tried playing with my dog for a few minutes yesterday as he's SO bored with me being ill, but after 2 minutes of chasing him around and throwing his toy, I collapsed in a heap on the sofa, gagging for air. I'm almost done with my steroids, I'm fresh out of the sizzurp but I'm still coughing. Do I go back to the doctor again? It's getting ridiculous!
