Well, I've consulted with Dr. Annacyclopedia and she agrees - I clearly have consumption. I had the flu all last week and then some and I thought I was finally at the tail end but I just keep coughing. It's not a productive cough, but it's deep and persistent (never fear, I have already realized I need to get to a real doctor and make sure it's not consumption, romantic as it sounds).
It's probably partly my fault - I went to Nashville last weekend to visit friends and stayed up all night drinking and gossiping loudly. It was fun, but not really conducive to getting healthy. And at work we have a conference coming up on Monday and Tuesday. Our VP had a death in the family, so I have to handle his shit on top of mine. Also making me tired.
Next fall, somebody, anybody, please remember to remind me to get my damn flu shot. I have been sick far too much this winter.
So assuming the consumtion doesn't take me in the middle of the night, until I can get in to the doctor, does anyone have any suggestions for what works for them in terms of sinus pressure and chest congestion? I'm drinking lots and lots of water, took some Robitusin, sucking cough drops like they'll make us fertile, using a humidifier...
