So this morning I slept through my final. Bad! Luckily, there's some sort of senior make-up exam tomorrow morning (same time, same place), so I'm gonna take that instead. Better!
The reason I slept through my final is probably that I was up until 6:30 this morning coughing and not being able to breathe and feeling like my throat was going to dry up and crack into a thousand sore pieces. It's allergy season, yes, but I feel like something else is going on here; I shouldn't feel like I have emphysema whenever my allergy medicine wears off. It's probably just a bad cold, but it still sucks, and my Zyrtec D ain't cuttin' it.
So I ask you, the readers. Do you guys have any suggestions for dealing with bad colds? I've cut back on the smoking (I know, I know, I should stop, at least right now, but cutting back is a start, right?) and drink plenty of green tea. Also, my one tried-and-true panacea for any illness is to complain about it incessantly. But do you guys have any other suggestions? Maybe some home remedies that sound ridiculous but actually maybe work really well? There is an acupuncturist's office beneath a goth club two blocks away from my dorm. How shady can it be, right?
