Unfairness of life
Why is it that what is usually a 48 hour cold for some people settles in my lungs and rages as bronchitis. I swear I feel like my lungs are bruised and raw. I rarely get sinus headaches or sniffly noses. No...what I get at least a few times a year is the feeling that I am being strangled from the inside by a very, very strong midget (errr....little person).
It started back in 1999 when I had 9 bouts of bronchitis and one of pnuemonia....spaced out at the end of every month. Now I just need to walk by someone smoking or catch the common cold and I start hacking like a cat with a giant hairball....except my broncial pathways are totally frozen so all I get is pain and a lack of oxygen.
Of course the only silver lining is that I can then complain and feel sorry for myself. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! But it's getting old, really old.
Hope I feel better by next week.
