Allergic to the cold?

As it turns out, my doctor thinks I am allergic to the cold.  How weird is that?

I have had this god-awful cough that sounds like I’m a duck trying to sound like a dog which comes upon me in great waves.  Every time I laugh, I cough.  Every time I go outside, I cough.  I am more susceptible to cigarette smoke (bring on January 1 when Trevor makes Plan B smoke free – yay!!).  And when I  start to cough, I cannot stop.  A bout can go on for 15 minutes and renders me unable to do anything else.

So, after being on antibiotics and on crazy but good-tasting Chinese medicine and another kind of medication that did nothing for me whatsoever, I am now taking cortisone which should have me back to normal by tomorrow.

Allergic to the cold.  Who knew.
