Cough Cough Sniff Sniff

Been quite a while now....
Every night, for the past few nights, it has been quite tiring and dreadful.
Too much coughing and heaving breathing (or lack of it).... from phlegm stucked in somewhere from the nose through to the throat and lungs.

Then, yesterday, I had enough.

For almost 3 hours, I took this bowl, filled it with hot water and inhaled and exhaled those precious moisture down my throat. With a towel over my head, I would sit for a good half and hour each time, and do it again. Lotsa thoughts went through my mind whilst undergoing the exercise. One of it, was 'now, why did't I do this any earlier??!' lol. Getting better takes so much trial and error, patience, and lots of liquid drink & rest. Patience. Patience. Patience.

I'm a terrible Patient. With little Patience. I transform into a miserable sulk.
And to make things a little bit more challenging, I lack the experience and immunity (after having grown up with bagfuls of goodie medication to takeaway). So,it is very much a learning experience for me every year, this time of the year. I'd like to believe that I'm learning to understand and be patient with myself at times of sickness much better than the year before!

Ah, being unwell has its values. It becomes particularly hard-er when we're all constantly on the move, doing things, planning, achieving... thinking. Especially me.
