I'm convinced I have some sort of asthma or consumption. I'm going with consumption because I'm dramatic but also like to prepare for the worst.
I feel fine until it's time for bed. I lay down to sleep and the coughing fits start. Where have my 28 year old smoke free lungs gone? When I'm not coughing I'm wheezing. It's really quite sexy. Eventually I fall asleep but if I wake back up the whole coughing-wheezing thing starts up again.
I had the same problem this past winter and when I went to the doctor they told me it was probably some sort of allergy thing which is funny because I take so much antihistamine anyone within a square block of me should immediately stop sneezing. They gave me a script for an inhaler that cost me $60.00 and gave me heartburn. I'm not even kidding. The second I inhaled that thing my esophagus was like what the eff is this?!
I know the culprit is my apartment. It's ancient and accumulates dust like nothing I've ever seen. I had an air purifier but Bosco puked into it. There was no cleaning cat puke out of that so I tossed it. I'd like a refund on my $60.00 heartburn inhaler so I can buy a new air purifier.
One of my co-workers suggested I rub eucalyptus on my feet and put socks on and go to bed. I think I'm going to look into getting a new air purifier because knowing me I will kick off the socks in my sleep and end up with eucalyptus all over myself.
UPDATE: Last night was much better. Maybe it was that snake tonic I drank. Cures everything I hear.
