I WOKE UP SICK AS A DOG!
Yesterday I woke up with a tickle in my lungs. It felt as if teeny tiny fairies with miniature feather dusters in hand were tickling the insides of my lungs and I was sort of short-of-breath. But that was it. I carried on working as usual, but by about 3 or 4PM the fairies with feather dusters had moved to my throat. Now I'm not sure if you remember this, but I've had my tonsils out twice, as I am extremely prone to Strep throat. (Oh, and they grew back after having them out the first time.)
I couldn't sleep last night at all, I just tossed and turned, until right now when I just got up to Google "coughing up yellow mucus." Sorry for the graphic description, but I need to know:
WILL I BE ABLE TO RUN TOMORROW?
Not only am I counting on myself, but Running Buddy Selena is counting on me too. I'm one tough cookie. I can do it! My mind is ready, my clothes are laid out, I have all of my GU ready to go!
I need to shake this stupid coughing up stuff/sore throat thing! LIKE NOW!
So, do you have any advice? I really need help here! Two factors I have on my side are, 1.) My Dad's a doctor, so I could just call him, and 2.) I'm already going to the doctor today so I can have them check me out to make sure I'm not dying.
I'm scared friends. This run is really important! What do you do when you're sick, if you can't be sick? Have you ever run when you had a cold or a cough? What sorts of things do you do when you're sick to make yourself feel better?
