Miss G finally gave up and decided to go to McDoctor's for a Sinus Infection Combo, supersize the cough syrup.
Or was is a Stardoc's Medicine, for a Head Cold Frappacino with a shot of steroids?
She's not sure which, because she's kinda looped right now.
She had to go, because every 15 minutes or so she would go into these maniacal hacking/coughing fits that left her red-faced, sore, and frustrated. She's had a cough drop in her mouth almost every second of the last week, and has even been sleeping with a cough drop in her mouth, but she would wake up every couple of hours when the cough drop melted and she would start hacking again. The drainage and the coughing are the only really bad symptoms, but they were really bad and not getting any better, until now.
So, Ronald McDoctor gave her a steroid shot in her derriere, plus a prescription for a codeine cought syrup (you know, the kind that actually work!) and a prescription strength antihistamine with the very literal name of "Lodrane". (She likes that medicine name almost as much as "Flomax"!)
Anyway, they both cause drowsiness, so Miss G figured she would pop them down and sleep the weekend away until she felt better. Not so much. Actually, the drainage has already stopped. Just like that. Not sure whether that the shot or the pill, but within 2 hours of each, that's done. And since the drainage has stopped, most of the coughing is gone. But instead of feeling sleepy, Miss G feels jittery. REAL jittery. Too jittery to drive, for sure. Jittery like she needs a drink. But that would make things only worse!
Maybe in a few hours, when it's time for her cough syrup again, she'll mix it into a glass of Sprite and pretend it's a cocktail before she goes to bed. A cocktail always calms her nerves!
At least she won't be coughing all night!
