This afternoon I was home by 2 and asleep by 3. I have had a few bouts of a duration of 20 minutes or so during which I have not been coughing, which is a great relief. Not talking really helps. Also keeping my sinus passages clear with various pseudoephedrine containing pills helps. Under normal circumstances they might keep me awake, but they can't fight The Great Sleep. The caffeinated pills sure can, but they're totally a stick keeping me up and when the stick gets pulled away I go boom.

I went to the doctor at 4:30 and now I'm on amoxycillin. Hopefully we can break this baby. His comment about cough syrups: "They're all basically useless." Well, I am in disagreement, as Benylin "dry coughs original" is what actually got my lungs quieted down enough to nap. The Covonia recommended by the pharmacist is crap. Fuck "levomenthol," give me my diphenhydramine and dextromethorphan. I've got some Night Nurse, too, which I'm hoping works like NyQuil.

<lj user=shadowdaddy> is back to feeling better than me (damn his eyes!) and actually walked to the Italian joint around the corner and picked us up a pizza. Go, mighty hunter! His foot is <I>not swollen</I> for the first day since he broke it and he's quite pleased about that.

One thing about this being sick deal is that other than buying medicine I've been a spending non-entity. Lunch out, dinner out, theater tickets, whatever, I just haven't been buying or going or doing. I have bought a few books, but I'm actually <I>ahead</I> in the books read to books bought ratio this month - I've finished seven books in one month and only bought three (see links on side of this blog if you're interested in what those books were). I got a new (well, used, but ...) one on the way back from the station: A.N. Wilson's "The Victorians," which I had my eye on in December but didn't buy as it was not "get a present for me" month. I've really picked up my history reading since I've moved here - I'm just finding it so interesting! Anyway, if you want to read my "used" books, I've got Michael Moorcock's "Knight of the Swords" and William Gibson's "Burning Chrome" up for giveaway and Connie Willis' <I>Waterwitch</I> available on loan ... let me know.

Benylin is God's Own COugh Medicine. It's the only one that ever helps me when I get a cough and is even better than a vouple of prescribed ones I've had.

Several doctors I've had have sworn by the stuff.
