I'm getting over one of the fastest colds in history.
I used to have colds which lasted in excess of 2 weeks, this month cold lasted 2 days itchy throat, to full on streaming face. The cough at the end, has lasted on a little longer than I would like.
Last night, i woke at 1.30 am gasping for breath and coughing as tho my insides were trying to escape. I staggered up and went to the loo. Once I had caught my breath I took a puff or two of my inhaler, and then tried to settle down again. My throat was so tight, for the first time in ages I had to stay calm and relax whilst I tried to get my breathing back under control again.
As I expected I drifted off, but I woke this morning feeling like I had wretched all night - and despite several cups of coffee, still feel like I could sleep for a week. Monday's always feel like this tho don't they?
