A cough, not just an ordinary cough you understand but one of those real bastard cough's that will do there absolute best to piss you off.
Day 1 start with a runny nose and a tickle that is starting to annoy - not too bad I can cope with this.
Day 2 a right hacking cough, green phlegm and all - so ok not looking too good but hey it will gone in a day or so- or will it?
Day 3,4 and 5 more of the same
Day 6 go to the Doctors, ahh you have a chest infection my dear here have these lovely antibiotics that will sort your cough out but rip your stomach to shreds and probably give you thrush ( ok maybe too much information eh)
forget what bloody day we are on now, but to cut it short took the antibiotics and finished them and .......
Day 10 go back to doctors as feeling like shit and have not had a decent nights sleep for well over a week, to be told Oh my dear you haven't got a chest infection you will just have to wait for it to go.
argggh so why am I still coughing?
Day11 and Night coughing, coughing coughing and no sleeping
Day 12 and Night surviving on about three hours sleep is now really starting to have a dire effect on me I am walking round like a zombie, I have ribs that feel like I have just done a round with Mohammed Ali and I routinely forget what I am doing and sa.....
Cough, cough bloody cough
