Not Cease from Exploration

Shaken, but not stirred

One of the many gifts I have been given in 2011 (and I actually have been given many gifts this year...) has been this whole adult asthma thing.  A side effect of that has been, I think, a tendency for colds to stay longer.  This has been the case for me for the past two weeks.  I don't think I've ever had a respiratory thing that lasted this long.  I know, "call the doctor", but as long as things slowly but surely seem to be getting better I'm going to avoid that, if for no other reason than the fact that there is not a lot the good Doctor McKenna can do for me anyway.

Ironic, huh?  A guy who is has never even tried bad for the lungs stuff like smoking now has asthma.  Somewhere someone is laughing about that one.

Anyway, I will confess to the fact that, earlier this week, this whole thing was getting me down.  I was tired of feeling sick, tired of feeling all doped up but not really better.  Insert invitation to pity party here.  Fortunately that passed, in large part to the discovery of the 10mg dose of Phenylephrine.  Now I just seem to have the linger effects of the cold, stubbornly holding on like Rick Santorum in the GOP primary.  Here's to hoping that both fade, and soon.

I really need to blog more...
