I came down with whatever they had and it turned into a horrible cough
. I was up one night until 5am coughing
...it wouldn't stop. I ended up going to the emergency room, thinking I was developing pneumonia. They x-rayed me and said no. The physician enraged me, saying I was "forcing the cough" (i.e, faking it) and he sent me home with sleeping pills. I slept for 2 days and the cough went away. Well, a year later, that same, mysterious cough returned.
