In case you didn’t see the last ditl, I’m sick. I ran a fever of 102F last week, but then the coughing and the respitory infection has been lingering..
I’m still super sick. I spent last night high as hell on a combo of benadryl and cough meds, but STILL up coughing. EVERY time I get sick, I get this feeling of something caught in the back of my throat. I cough and cough and cough trying to get it up, but a doc once told me that it’s not boogers, it’s the back of my throat touching the front. I usually have to get an antibiotic, a steroid and a cough syrup with codeine in it, but with no health insurance I’m stuck with whatever my doc friend calls in for me.. this time i got $91(!!!) antibiotics and a cough syrup with no codeine and no steroids… still coughing. I really just want to stick something down my throat to get that stuff out, but nothing’s there. It seriously is so awful I could easily go absolutely out of my mind, really really insane if i have to deal with this much longer.
The second worst part is the antibiotics. No nausea, no diarrhea, but seriously the most god awful smelling gas I have ever had. I was sitting in bed last night and nearly hotboxed myself to death. Scared the cat out of the room, it smells so horrible. All I can think is “WTF is IN those pills??”
