More health whinnings…
I went to bed with Dave, bloody exausted at 11pm and couldn’t sleep, woke every hour coughing my brains out. Laying down makes the coughing worse. Even reclined on 3 pillows.
Tonight I tried:
‘-Benalyn DM that the pharmacist gave me and said it was pregnancy safe and would help control my cough to allow me to sleep.
-Halls to lubricate my throat
-Water to lubricate my throat
-A cup of warm water with lemon and honey before bed to soothe my throat
-A warm salt water gargle just now to try and soothe my throat
-Chloraseptic numbing throat spray to try and easy the itch/burning in my throat which seems to be causing the chronic night cough,
-Vick vapo rub all over my chest and neck.
None of it was successful, so here I am awake, blogging, so blood exausted, running off maybe 3 hours broken sleep a night for the past 3 night and so far tonight have not even been able to get to sleep at all. I guess I will go have a shower and hope the steam helps. The thing is that it’s the congestion it’self stopping me from sleeping, it’s the coughing which is a result of a dry, burning, scratchy throat.
During the day, to try and boost my immune system and beat this I have been eating cloves of raw garlic, taking my vitamins with extra vitamin C and drinking loads and loads and loads of fluids all day long. Water and hebal teas.
I have never wanted sleep so bad in my life, and yes I do know that motherhood will be this way, but I would like to rest up before that happens, otherwise I fear I may have a complete damn nervous breakdown.
Also I have an excruciating canker soar under my tongue.
Yes-I am whinning, I am damn well whinning.
