Coughing Fun

My breathing has been getting worse, enough that I barely dare to sleep. I can hear it crackling in my mouth, and the air isn’t shaped right when I exhale.

It got bad enough that I went to the hospital last night. I’m no lung expert, and wasn’t going to take chances (not to mention that the whole idea of sleeping and getting too short of breath was scaring the shit out of me), so I went to get help. We wound up sitting in emergency for over an hour and a half, and the doctor said I wasn’t sick enough to admit. He was very nice, just didn’t think I was bad enough to warrant being in hospital.

I need to wait for the antibiotics to kick in, he said. Right! Okay. Should take another day or so. It’s not being a fun day. I’m exhausted, because I got about two hours of sleep, and every time I sit any way but bolt upright, I have a coughing fit.

Bleah. Hopefully I’ll be able to lie down enough to sleep tonight. If I can get half a brain, I need to sort out today’s AB post too. Right. Must get onto that.

    So sorry you’re sick, and relentless coughing is the suck. Really hope the ABs make a difference.
