My allergies are acting up big time this week.
My nose is stuffed, I have bad post-nasal drip, and I have coughing fits that make me sound like a barking sealion.
The same thing happenned last year right around July 4 - I was diagnosed with seasonal asthma and given an inhalant that cleared up the problem in a few days.
Yesterday, the doctor listened to my lungs and said they sounded clear - no asthma. He prescribed a nasal spray decongestant/steroid and a bottle of cough syrup - I picked them up this afternoon.
This cough syrup is absolutely vile! It smells like MelaFix, and probably doesn't taste much better! The only upside is that it contains codeine, so I will be in cough-free sleepyland soon.
Just letting everyone know - in case my posts become incoherent, it's the cough syrup at work!!
