Sick and tired of this cough.
It's not a real cough. Like Whooping Cough or TB.
It's caused by cattarh sitting in my throat in the aftermath of a cold.
Happened last year over Easter (although that was more severe I admit - this is more irritating)

My voice is croaky, I cough to clear my throat so much it hurts, but it is a natural reaction. Mum has been bitching about it under her breath for a week and now has started bitching about it out loud on the phone to friends and family; being half term I am here to hear it. I cough when walking, talking and doing even minor chores like changing my bed linen (although that involves rough and tumble with Diz, which almost elevates it to exercise).

I've had four different over-the-counter pills now. Including those with caffeine, which have contributed to my foul temper.

I've long worn out any sympathy I might have had at home (usually about 1% anyway) and I don't want any from work. It might put them off my cake - I was very careful not to cough anywhere near it I promise! Back tomorrow and I just want to well!

I
Just
Want
It
Gone.

Isn't there something toad-based I can try?

you already have a frog in your throat and now you want to add a toad?

We all have chronic coughs around here, for various reasons.

Chronic not only gives me coughs, it also gives me ferocious cottonmouth.

Just different types of decongestant.
Some with paracetemol, some with caffeine (not many) some with added Vitamin C.
All spaced properly apart.

None since yesterday when I had my viral explosive sickness.
Which I wondered if it was connected to the tablets (as it felt like the codeine reaction I had the other year). But nothing going, just a bug.

I still have a good old rattly cough.
Which I didn't have yesterday as I was throwing up all the congestion.
But at least today I can cough it up again without throwing up.

There's always one step further down you can go it seems.

So do you have a lot of mucus in your lungs or is it just in the back of your throat?

A while back I had a cough that was caused by chronic post-nasal drip. I was always hacking and especially at night, so I wasn't getting a good nights rest. I ended up using a combination of guaifenesin w/ a cough suppressant and an antihistamine at night, and then pseudoephedrine and antihistamine during the day, and I finally got some relief.

Back of my throat. I assume.
If it was lungs I'd have worse symptoms.

*** SFW but nasty - text only ***






Before I actually became Mr Creosote, I was coughing up things you would expect to see in your tissue when you blow your nose.
I mean - seriously.
Green stringy strands and more solid bogeys (boogers).
I have never in my life coughed something into my mouth that belongs in my nose.
Revolting.

Sorry - I did warn you.

My nose is not longer running badly, although I blow my nose more than a person in normal health.
But my throat needs an ice-cream scoop to sort it out.

Check your feet; 'cause, if your nose runs and your feet smell ... you're upside down.

So the office is again dropping like flies. 4 or 5 out on vacation, another 4 called in sick today. We just keep passing it around.

It's only scorching my groove because my tummy is teh oogy and I don't want to get sick AGAIN.

Wish me luck it's just a passing gastrointestinal event.
