This is as ugly a chest cold as I've had in years. I'm seriously wondering if I am going to make it to Florida on Wednesday. If I miss ICFA, another damned thing lost to my health from the increasingly shortly list of things I still get to do. The irony, of course, is that this has nothing directly to do with cancer. (I'm not immunocompromised or anything right now.) It's just a freaking chest cold.

I am so sorry that you have to be dealing with this in addition to everything else.

I've got a chest cold right now, but not a really bad one, fortunately.

See if you can get your doctor to prescribe hydrocet. About 4 years ago I had a really bad chest cold (the kind where your chest muscles ache with exhaustion from coughing), and my doctor gave me a prescription. It worked like magic overnight. I have asthma, and my lungs hadn't felt so clear in years.

I'll ask. Though with that name, it sounds like an opiate derivative?

Yeah, which is why I haven't asked to get it for less severe chest colds.

I forgot you've got a bad reaction to opiates. Oh well.

Take the infection seriously. There's a really bad one going around. It took me five months and three courses of antibiotics and I'm still not sure I've beaten it.
