It gets worse
I didnt have a coughing problem until this morning. I was just hacking a bit when I woke up and was not too worried about it. I had another class this afternoon and headed to school. I found the class, sat down and felt a little tickle in my throat as the instructor was handing out the syllabus. Then my eyes started watering and I knew I needed to cough. I tried to cough discreetly, but it came out as one of those deep “hooogah” coughs that are really loud and leave you gasping for air. Then tears started streaming down my face and snot started pouring from my nose as I coughed and coughed and coughed. I ran blindly from the room in search of a bathroom. I literally could not see well because water was pouring out of my eyes. I was unfamiliar with that building and it took me a long time to find one. I ran in and sort of slumped down on the floor next to the toilet paper dispenser in the handicap stall. I thought I was going to suffocate because I couldnt draw in enough breathe before the next cough. I started panicking and thinking about how no one was going to find me in this remote bathroom until it was too late. Thankfully the coughs slowed down enough for me to breathe again and I was able to shakily stand up after a little bit. I continued to cough, though and decided to just dart back in and grab my stuff from the classroom and go home. I did, causing a lot of commotion because my coughing continued as I tried to quickly pick up my notebook and water bottle and stuff them in my backpack as I ran from the room. Can’t wait to go back on Thursday.
