>*Cough cough cough cough cough*

>So you know how I’ve been complaining about coughing, etc lately? Well the other day I realized that I’d been coughing for about three weeks. It’s not just a dry cough either. I get to hack up all this yummy phlegm as well (aren’t you all glad I just wrote that? Hahaha). I’m horrible about going to the doctor because usually I think I will just get better by resting and drinking lots of water. But yesterday one of the girls in my class told me, “You know, you should really see a doctor.” She was probably sick of listening to me hack up a lung in the middle of class.

So in the middle of a coughing fit tonight I went down and asked my host sister (who’s a doctor! how convenient!) to listen to my lungs.

Diagnosis: bronchitis.

The good thing is that I don’t feel bad, that part of the sickness has already passed. Unfortunately that was the few days before I left home and while I was on the airplane. I probably made it worse by taking so many cough suppressants so I would sleep.

Anyway, now I have a diagnosis and I’m going to go to the pharmacy tomorrow morning and get all of my medicines (4 of them!). Then maybe I’ll stop sounding like a pack-a-day smoker.
