I hear once you get a lung transplant you have to be taught how to cough again. Can I decline this? haha. I HATE coughing. I know, I know, coughing helps move and clear junk out of my lungs. But come on! Couldn't God or whoever given Cystic Fibrosis people a better, more flattering way of moving and clearing junk?
There is not one thing that is sexy about coughing. When I have a coughing attack, my face becomes red or even purplish, sometimes I gag or throw up, sometimes I pee, and about 95% of the time I get a lovely glob of mucus to come shooting up from the depths of my lungs. Now doesn't that sound cute?!
Now that I have drawn all this attention to myself with the coughing freakout, people are worried about me, asking if I'm ok. ORRR They back away and think "What the hell does she have!" Its pretty awesome. I get asked EVERYDAY if I'm sick or have a cold. I worked at a take out place one summer, I didn't even touch the food, but the looks I got from people if I starting coughing at all could burn a hole through a cement wall. I understand, kind of, I mean I wouldn't want someone to cough on my food either, but to glare at me like I'm carrying the black plague is just plain ridiculous.
Coughing is so not cute. And what makes it even worse, I think, is that fact that after I cough up a storm I need to spit the junk I just hacked up, out! If guys didn't line up before, they sure will once they see that! haha. Coughing just plain sucks. After transplant I DO NOT want to be taught how to cough again! Haha, leave that pesky monkey behind.
I WANT TO BE COUGH FREEEEE!!!
