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.
