But now I have this unrelenting, overpowering, sleep-interrupting, mood-dampening cough that Just. Won't. Leave.
I bought Mucinex for the first time yesterday. Words can't describe how much I dislike that that happened. Mucinex. It kind of worked, but then I woke up coughing for an hour and thought I might die last night.
I just like for things to run their course. For the most part, our bodies do what they're supposed to be doing, and if something's wrong (and we're relatively healthy) then it's getting put right. I want this to run its course.
Except that I haven't slept through the night in a week.
So, now I'm desperate.
My next course of conventional-western-medicine action is a prescription cough syrup with codeine.
Again, you should know that I hate drugs.
I can't decide. Do I take the opiate and try to sleep tonight? Or do I let this run its course and cough myself to death?
