Last night, I actually got a good night's sleep!!
I'm not a person who normally has sleeping problems. I tend to keep myself so exhausted that I fall in to bed and start snoozing.
But this hacking, persistent cough has gotten worse every night when I lay down to sleep . . for weeks, like over a month now. Most nights I get back up and do more work until I start falling asleep at my desk. I was honestly afraid they would postpone my eye surgery over this even (which they didn't of course).
I've tried several different things. Finally this week I went back to the doctor's office, again. More rounds of tests for me. And two different medicines for me, this time much stronger. And finally . . . finally last night I slept well :) The cough is still here, but it is fading. Hooray!
I can't help but think that if I could rest better, this wouldn't have grown in to such a thing. But, I tried. I really did.
Tonight I am thankful for finally seeing some improvement in this cough! I can't wait to sleep tonight and see how it goes! This is a total 180 because in past weeks, I've been hating bedtime. Like dreading it because I knew as soon as I laid down, I'd start coughing worse and worse. Now, that is not the case! Hooray!
