Phlegmville

I have been infected with a super evil gorilla sitting on my chest fill my lungs with phlegm cause me to hack until I see stars and feel like passing out oogey sickness.  I tried to sleep, take a ton of vitamins, and flush it with a ton of water but that didn't work at all.  It started to effect my training so I made a doctors appt.  The first thing they did was take blood.  I know you don't realize this yet but I am not a huge fan of having blood taken.  A quick listen to my lungs and the doc gave me antibiotics and cough syrup with codeine.  The cough syrup is KEY! I have been lucky enough to have been born into a family that has the genetic predisposition to hernias.  I know, it's like winning the lottery right?  Some of you are probably thinking, What? That's crazy?  Oh yeah, tell me how 3 regular hernias and a hiatal hernia.  There is only one other hernia that I haven't had (something with the belly button).  Anyway, massive coughing attacks led to the last two hernias so I am very quick to kill it off with as much force as I can find.  I tried to run today and made it about 1/2 of a mile before I thought I was going to pass out I was coughing so hard.  I kid you not, I literally saw stars.  I am hoping these drugs kill it quickly!  I need to get back on track with my training.  I feel like I am so far behind already.  Well, my head is a swimmy from the cough medicine so I am going to pass out now.
