Cough

I caught a cold back in May that lasted for a couple of weeks. Since then, I've had a dry, irritating, annoying cough that gets worse at night and seems to be connected to either cottonwood or something else in abundance in the air right now. My chest is tight and achy. When I went through the check out line at the grocery store today, I couldn't get through a sentence without coughing (it's the only time I've talked to anyone today, so I suppose it has nothing special to do with the store clerk or the store itself.)

I go to the doctor on Thursday. I'm not particularly proud of how long it's taken me to make that appointment. Aside from it being an irritation and an obvious indication that something's not right, I guess I just didn't think of it being a big enough deal to go to the doctor. There may be a bit of denial there.

PPBob said to tell you to go to the doctor. You're messing with his beauty sleep.

Mmm, maybe just a little (says the Queen of Denial...). I'm glad to hear you're going to see the doctor.

Doctor, good concept. Glad you thought of it.

It's good to check with the doctor. Hope you're doing the usual "mom" directives--gargling with salt water, drinking plenty of fluids, getting rest, some extra vitamins, esp. zinc. Get well soon!
