… and it won’t go away.
I get it from time to time. Lasts about two to three months. And it just won’t go away.
It isn’t painful and it doesn’t make breathing difficult. It just clogs up my lungs enough to be a nuisance. More importantly, because I cough every forty-five seconds or so, I have a great deal of difficulty going to sleep.
I’ve tried allergy medication and cough medication. These days, I take enough NyQuil to kick my ass to sleep. But my body is getting used to it and that means I have to take more and more and the amount I need to take now for it to have any effect is getting quite dangerous, so I’ll be slowing down on that.
So, really, the only option I have is taking the NyQuill and staying up as late as possible until I’m literally falling over. That means I’m up way passed where I usually pass out. Just because of this damn cough.
