So Close To Freaking Out!

Do you know when you have had one of those colds that has become worse and worse? Mine has become awful since it descended onto my chest. I can’t stop coughing!


It’s worse at night, when I am desperate for sleep. I have tried smothering myself and my pillows with decongestants, and propping myself up with pillows to try to sleep. But last night because my coughing was keeping me awake for so long, I resorted to taking some drowsy cough medicine. I am not great with medicines, they seem to have ten times the intended effect on me. But I was so desperate for sleep.

It didn’t take long before I was fast asleep. Lovely 🙂

Until…early this morning…

…right outside my bedroom window…


…came this noise (it seemed as if it was on full blast…but I am sure I heard it much louder than the rest of our neighbours.

I woke up to Chic “Le Freak”, known to many as “Freak Out”. Well, despite normally liking this song, at seven o’clock in the morning, I felt pretty close to freaking out I will admit. Builders! In fact, I cannot tell you how close I was to freaking out at them. I wanted to open my window up wide (I had it open a couple of inches to let some fresh air into the room) and ask them if they were insane – playing music at that time of the morning? Grrrr!

    1. I think a lot of us who work in pharmacy try to avoid medicines wherever we can. But I must admit I found the drowsy cough medicine helped me fall asleep. My constant coughing was keeping me awake, so I needed a bit of extra help.

  1. Hi, I coughed for 20-odd years (family of smokers-not me!) until a Physio recommended DRINKING LOTS! I also have a cold now and have been making two drinks for every single (say one tea and one just hot water) and it works a treat. Idea is not to let the yucky stuff get too thick. Hope you feel better soon x

    1. I think since I had singing lessons I have become a big guzzler. Always trying to keep my throat comfortable.
      But I probably did drink more than usual while I had this cold because of my constant coughing. Mostly honey and lemon, which was very nice.
