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 that’s been going on with me, and he says “Let’s do a strep test.” Comes back positive, so he gives me some antibiotic, then says “I’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 ‘mildly narcotic’, but he didn’t tell me that it’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 wasn’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.
