Last year I had walking pneumonia and my lungs have never been the same. They feel tight quicker then they ever have in the past, I’m more prone to cough at the smallest tickle and anytime I even start to think that I might be getting sick I feel it in my chest first.
Last week I woke up with a sore throat and my lungs felt heavy. I was determined not to get sick before my long awaited vacation/honeymoon so I used the power of positive thinking to keep myself well. Unfortunately stress weakens the power that positive thinking holds and I got a chest cold over the weekend. It is now Wednesday and I feel like my head is going to pop when I cough, but I hold out hope that just being on vacation will work wonders on me. I really really hope so.
