I'm so tired of being sick! I think being on disability for 4 months compromised my immune system. Is that possible? Because I never got sick before disability, and I've been a walking snot/cough machine for the last two weeks. The coughing has gotten so violent, I popped a blood vessel in my eye. I've taken crazy amounts of cough medicine, and throat lozenges, all of which has been no help. I'm starting to think my body just doesn't want to do its job anymore. I do finally have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, hopefully I get a z-pack or something.

In the meantime, any suggestions? Old family ideas, or slightly insane cough remedies? I'm just about willing to do anything to stop this madness.
