Well, I went to the doctor yesterday. Finally. This was after two nights of not sleeping because I was coughing so badly. Went to the doctor and told him everything thatâ€™s been going on with me, and he says “Letâ€™s do a strep test.” Comes back positive, so he gives me some antibiotic, then says “Iâ€™m also giving you a mildly narcotic cough medicine so you can sleep, and some steroids to reduce the swelling to help you cough stuff up more easily.” Well, he said â€˜mildly narcoticâ€™, but he didnâ€™t tell me that itâ€™d make me drunk! I took some when I got home at noon, then slept for 8 hours straight. Woke up and took some more, but wasnâ€™t sleepy enough to lie down again. It sure made me drunk though. I could barely walk at all, and just sitting on the couch felt like I was going to fall off of it. It was crazy! At about 1:30 am, I was coughing a lot so I took a bit more, and went back to bed. I woke up at some point during the night, but the meds were still in effect, so I went back to sleep after about 30 minutes. That stuff kicks my ass.
