Almost the entire month of January, I got hit with the annual cold/sinus infection bug that seemed to hit everyone when the weather started going wacky (from cold to warm and vice versa). It is WRONG for the weather to warm up to 70 degrees (w/rain) in the middle of January here! WTF! IT’S WINTER; STAY COLD GODDAMIT! Everytime I thought I was slightly starting to get better, the damn weather would flip and I’d be hacking away my lung and not being able to breathe out of my nose.
I pretty much didn’t have much of a voice the entire month. At some points, I just had to whisper to talk. My doctor had to prescribe me a nasal spray (aside from an antibiotic) and I was also taking Tussinex at night. Sucks waking up in a fit of coughing!
As of right now, the cold is pretty much gone but the coughing is still around (just not as bad). The only thing that worries me is when I cough, I’m coughing up phlegm. Ugh. Yes, I will go see the damn doctor again!
