So I have…the croup! Like a baby gets. At least that’s the term my doctor gave me. Then I went to Dr. Google to research after a friend told me it was just laryngitis and she was right. But JUST laryngitis? Oh please. I haven’t had a good nights rest in 5 nights because I cough, like a seal, with no progression and that’s with a mountain of drugs they gave me. I did get to sleep from about 3:00am to around 7:30 this morning and then coughed for a solid hour with some progression. I even took a shower that included more then just washing my hair. But now it’s 3:30 and I am supposed to take a test today. All I want is a nap. Everyone’s napping. I know if I lay down I’ll just cough for 6 hours and not actually rest, so what’s the point when I could just take this test and move on with my life.
You guys the laryngitis croup struggle is real. Sometimes my throat is so swollen I can’t get enough air in my lungs and then I end up coughing until I almost pass out. I can’t feel my throat hurting though because they gave me some crazy anesthesia type medicine that numbs my throat to hopefully decrease swelling. The exhaustion is unreal. I can barely sit up without feeling like I need to nap for 22 days and just crossing my legs is work. My voice is near gone, I don’t even remember what it sounds like. Definitely less manly then it does right now without squeeks and breathy sounds.
Basically I’m a hott mess. Pray for me folks. It might be a rough few weeks!
