I went to the doctor on Tuesday and he hooked me up with the Magic Anti-Cough Pills (benzonatate) that will eventually slay the Evil Cough of Doom. He also gave me some prednisone to clear up some wheezing in the lungs, and it turns out, prednisone gives me horrific insomnia. I haven't felt at all sleepy until 4 am the last two nights running. Whee!

Today I took both pills in the morning, instead of one early and one late, and I'm going to take some melatonin right before I go to bed, so hopefully that will help. Plus, y'know, running on only four hours of sleep, which made me Mister Crabby-Pants this morning, but otherwise seems to have merely made me a little bit forgetful and messed up my sense of time.

Now, if I can just get past the stage where I have a massive coughing fit that wakes me up right as I'm just about to fall all the way asleep...
