The Cough of Doom

My immune system must be in actual bits because I’ve caught something (again) and all I’ve done over the last couple of days is cough and cough and cough and cough….IMG_2807It’s not been a fun and happy time, I carry my inhaler around like a two year old does a teddy because the with the cough comes wheezing and I’ve become the master of the late night shower because when it’s 3am and you can’t stop coughing, the logic is that the steam from a shower might help and it sort of does. This last week has re-enforced my real and abiding love of the World Service, which is what R4 flips to after 1pm, except when it does this weird thing of broadcasting childrens and schools programming in the early hours of the morning. Nothing like a round of Zingzillas at 2am to make you think you’re hallucinating.

On Monday, the Doctor gave me a steroid nasal spray and it seems to be kicking in, the cough hasn’t been quite as bad today, although my voice is getting more and more husky as the day progresses. I don’t sound at all alluring more like a dying toad!

I mostly just want to sleep and you never know tonight I might manage more than three hours…
