Nothing I Can Do About it Now

So where’s that post I promised?

Acute bronchitis usually lasts approximately 10 or 11 days. It may accompany or closely follow a cold or the flu, or it may arrive unaccompanied by any other condition. It is contagious, and it starts out with a dry cough, frequently waking the sufferer up at night. After a few days it progresses to a wetter, productive cough, which may be accompanied by a low grade fever, fatigue, and headache. The fever, fatigue, and malaise may last only a few days, but the wet cough may last up to several weeks. For some people, the cough may last as long as a few months as the bronchial tubes heal slowly.

The coughing, oh my Christ, the coughing. I would call it karma, but Cristian has been suffering just as much, if not more, because he has to hear it. And it is grotesque.

I’m trying to keep my spirits up by pretending I’m Beth from Little Women (didn’t she die of tuberculosis? Sorry if I just spoiled the ending for anybody), but I can’t seem to keep a corset on for more than 2 minutes at a go……..
