I have been coughing for 6 months. What started at Christmas as a deep productive cough, is now a shallow wheezing cough that drains all of the energy out of me. I’m not coughing as often or as deep, but I think that’s because I just don’t have the strength. I’ve slowly lost my voice over the past few weeks and now can only manage a whisper.
The leader of the New German Medicine retreat I attended lost her voice that weekend and said it was because of “unresolved fear issues”. My fear is that I’m going to croak (silently) from acute or chronic infectious process before the cancer ever gets me. I'm considering taking up smoking, just to speed up the process.
