It’s not the cough that finishes you off…

But the Coffin they carried you off in.

Bit of a wild overstatement there, but how often would I have the chance to post that little gem there.

Not really sure why I’m writing this, but it is early, I haven’t slept well, and well… why not.

Last week I started feeling ill, kind of ‘flu’ ill. Luckily it passed in a couple of days, and I pushed on regardless. What it has left me however, is a nasty cough that has not settled firmly on my chest and won’t let me breath without evoking a series of coughs that ignite my chest and by the end of the day could have me breathing fire and terrorizing villages.\



It really annoys me, I hate being sick, I hate being immobile and unable to do my normal things, however if this gets much worse I may have to resort to some form of medication. Which in Holland isn’t really that much of a choice. The selection of medicine and remedies for ailments is shockingly poor. Still, if it works right.

I am off work tomorrow too, because the car has to go in for the yearly MOT. *Cue tears.

God knows what is wrong with it, but I love my car and hope it survives. If needed though I can always head to the doctors. You can’t been in advance anymore, only on the day itself . The wonders of modern appointment organizers and software programs. Progress really is remarkable. Okay, maybe that’s a bit cynical for 5 am.

I’m gonna stop there, I have another post to write that isn’t so filled with woe.

Have a great day and thanks for reading.

  1. Definitely go to the doctor Alex. The cold was the virus. The cough sounds like it could be a bacterial infection coming along after the virus. Hope you feel better soon. 🙂

    1. Thanks Meeks, I am coughing pretty much all day, but doesn’t seem to be getting worse. I will give it to the weekend, and if still annoying me then, I’ll try and get something to attack it with. 🙂

  2. I hope you are feeling better this evening Alex. I have had one of those days too, dealing with a recurring health problem that recently decided to attack. I am left feeling very frustrated and fed up with the whole thing. Maybe I’ll blog about it too… ; )

    1. I feel fine, apart from this damned cough. It doesn’t feel like anything too troublesome however, so hopefully I will be back to full health by the weekend. Hope you are feeling better too Catherine.
