Been nursing a very bad cough for the past week. All sorts of cough syrups, from purchases at pharmacy to doctor's prescription were consumed but didn't helped at all. Worst part was that the coughs always attacked at night and I really felt bad disturbing hubby dear from his sleep. He would got up to check on me, applied ointment and gave me hot drinks to soothe the itched and sored throat. What I dreaded most and also embarassing was on board the public transport, the throat would started to itch and I could feel the mouthful of coughs coming out and all stares were on me as though I'm suffering from some deadly diseases. I just wished that I could hide beneath the seats or just disappear into thin air! Sigh........... oooh I hated the coughs!
