since sxsw i have been sick as hell.
i thought i was dying the first couple of days, then i thought i was getting better, then i thought i was dying again.
i tried healing myself with natural remedies, but this was one fight my body couldn't handle alone.
today, after coughing up something i am not going to describe, i decided it was time to visit the doctor.
so of course, i was prescribed some strong antibiotics. as the doc began to exit the room, i mentioned that i hadn't slept in 4 days because i can't breathe/ stop coughing at night.
"do you know of a cough syrup that would help with that?" i asked.
the doctor closed the door and looked at me super seriously.
"i do. it is a...narcotic. is that ok?"
i got scared and said.... "y-y-yeah i guess"
when i picked up my prescription, the pharmacist took one look at the bottle of cough syrup and said "oh, this will make you feel a LOT better. yeah, you're gonna feel reaaalll good" i laughed a little, but mostly felt weird and got out of there as fast as i could.
on the way home i started thinking that maybe i had some......."sizzurp"
this suspicion was confirmed when i got home and noticed "this is a GOLD, LIQUID." on the bottle.
"ohhhh. ok. that's what all the fuss was about", i thought. "this is a GOLD, LIQUID."
i guess that explains why it was 60 bucks, too.
