I don`t know what's wrong with me, but umm.. yeah.
I can't go to the doctors because my mom doesn't have insurance. =S
But.. um, yeah. The school nurse just said I might be getting a cough.
But how can that be possible when this has been going on since the summer of 06?

Well, I kind of have this 'cough' but it's not an actual cough, I don't think. When I have it, people say I sound like I'm coughing up a hairball. Cough medicine doesn't help either, which I did take because my mom also thought I was getting a cough. My throat does not itch when this happens and it happens at the most random times.
It kind of stopped until a few days ago I had one of these.. and it felt like it was an 'attack' because it happened during class and I felt like like I was going to puke afterwards and I also felt like someone was choking me.

Anybody have any idea what`s going on?

Oh, and no, I don't have asthma.. =\

  • Go to your local public health clinic. You need to get it checked out. X.
