it may be too early to say this, but...

I may be getting better. I've coughed a lot less today, and while my chest continues to rattle, the rattling and general phlegminess have been less pronounced than they had been over the previous 24 days. How the hell can a simple infection last a whole freakin' month? I've been pumping vitamins, resting, drinking plenty of fluids like water and the occasional clear juice. I even went through a 10-day cycle of prescription meds, but in the end, it truly seems that the only thing one can do is weather the illness while it runs its course. Maybe most medicines are a placebo, designed to make us think they're working when in fact they do nothing. I hope I'm wrong: that thought has some dark implications.
