I’m not a big fan of going to the doctor, but I came down with a cold over a week ago.  I got over the cold about Wednesday of last week, but the cough that accompanied it has remained.  And it is killing me.  It is really bad at night when I am trying to get some sleep.  My sleep habits aren’t great to begin with, so when you toss in the coughing factor, I’m just not getting any reasonable amount of quality sleep.  And of course I’m just yawning during the day.  I couldn’t even eat enough turkey over the Thanksgiving weekend to induce a cough-free coma.

This week I will be at an off-site training instead of going to the office.  Good thing because I’ve been coughing a lot at work.  And a co-worker likes to point out that I am not coughing in the government approved manner, which consists of coughing into your arm?  This whole time I’ve just been covering my mouth.  My bad.

I hope it’s not swine flu.  My coughs sound like traditional coughs.  Not oinks.  So I may be okay.

  • I had a bad cough after getting bronchitis this summer. I had antibiotics and thought it was gone but it would only happen at night. I took loads of ginger, this detox tea, and drank lots of fluids. The ginger is the best for bringing out all that crap in the back of your throat. After a few days, it went away completely.

    I’ve had the same problem lately. Mine aren’t that frequent, but I’ll have sudden coughing fits every so often that last a couple of minutes. They sound pretty nasty too. Hope you feel better soon, dude.

  • Martina:

    I also have been randomly coughing and can’t stop. It has been happening everyday around the same time. OF Course i am kinda young but still. I can’t seem to stop it. I don’t know if it is because i have a dry throat or what. I don’t think it is because i get water but i still cough. This goes on for about 30 minutes to an hour. Like i said before i am still kinda young but I don’t know what it is. If anyone knows what the problem might be, please reply. also i hope you feel better….

Today's Deep Thought

  • I remember that one fateful day when coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. 'You don't have to tell me,' I said. 'I'm off the team, aren't I?' 'Well,' said coach, 'you never were really on the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. you show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times.' It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
