in December I was sick for three weeks with Laryngitis and a cough from hell. Finally it seemed to be disappearing and I thought it was gone, only to come back in January, mid way through the month. Another two weeks of Laryngitis and cough from hell. I went to see a doc both times, but not my usual doctor and they said it was a sinus infection. So, that one cleared up and again, I have it. Keep in mmind the coughing gets so bad that I vomit all day long. This is the worst thing I've ever had to deal with. So, I got an appointment with my doc and he looked through my records and said, "Stop taking Lisinopril as of today. You're having an allergic reaction to it." I mentioned that I had been on it for six years and no reaction and he said, "I'm telling you, I've seen this a few times. It's the meds." He gave me a new Prescription and told me to be patient as I wait for the cough from hell to leave. It's going to take 7-10 days, he said. You'll feel better, he said. You'll feel like you're old self again, he said. Yuck. So, I sleep maybe three hours a night and I look so horrible. I'm exhausted and I'm so sore from coughing. My hubster did tell me that was voice was sort of sexy with the hoarseness sound to it. He thinks he's so funny. LOL I will try and be patient as I wait to see if this leaves soon. I did go look it up and sure enough a lot of people have horrible reactions to it. Who would think that this would happen after six years, you know? It's almost Valentine's Day, so I'm putting a new icon up there with Blair. :) I have to find things to do that aren't too exhausting. And speaking of VD, I want to send out a big thank you to Grey for the card that came in the mail. It couldn't have come at a better time. I've been somewhat depressed thinking I was just nuts. (Okay, I know I'm nuts, but still.) Thank you, Sweetie. I loved it. Tomorrow is Friday and we all know what that means, right? Yup, we get to read a fun post from Snailbones.

Hugs to all of you for letting me vent. :)
