I visited the eye clinic last Wednesday morning and was given the all clear. I still have apply the eye drops, but less frequently.
During the afternoon I started coughing. I've been coughing ever since. Nothing seems to stop it. Antiseptic throat spray numbs my throat for a few minutes. I cough and cough but nothing shifts. I cough so much I feel faint and have to hang on to the furniture. My chest aches from the coughing. I've checked but I'm not running a temperature.
This will be the fourth or fifth year that I've had this. When it strikes I just have to sit still and wait it out. Sometimes I just have to sit upright, even through the night.
Life is on hold.
I have a blood test and an appointment to see the specialist tomorrow morning. If he agrees then I will have my long delayed fifth course of treatment on Tuesday.
