I feel like I've been looking like Baby Drowsy this whole week. I've been struggling with a cough/cold/crud for 4 weeks now. YES.....FOUR WEEKS! I started on an antibiotic on Monday. And I pulled a muscle coughing, which is very painful. And yes I'm whining about it.
This is how bad it is.......I actually took cough syrup today.....I swallowed liquid medicine. Let me repeat : I took liquid medicine! This is HUGE for me. I have not swallowed liquid medicine since my childhood. Seriously. I pulled up my big girl panties and I swallowed it!!!!!!
So what if it was Walgreen's Children's Cherry Flavored Cough Syrup. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Actually it was the only cough medicine my friend Ann had. It was horrid. But I took it and I didn't even gag. I am so proud of myself!!! And I had to do it......4 of my closest friends were standing there staring at me. Talk about peer pressure!
The last time I felt that much peer pressure was my freshman year in college when my roommate got me to smoke a cigarette from the pack she found in her boyfriend's jacket pocket. As bad as that cigarette tasted it was no where near as bad as the cherry cough syrup!
