More health whinnings…

It’s 2am.
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.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re so sick. I hope you get some sleep soon. (((Thinking of you)))

  2. Ugh, I wish there was something I could do for you. This sounds like the absolute pits.
