is good! Turns out that coughing this chronically...like 4 months just really irriated my vocal cords. They're fine though--no real damage. Just to be super safe, he wants to do a CT on Friday and if that looks OK I'm going on some super hard core antibiotics and steroids. I said I have IBS pretty bad sometimes and he said to wait and do the CT first--nice doc!!
But oh boy did the anxiety get me. I almost lost it in the doc's office--we're talking 50 min of just sitting there. My sweet husband just held my hand and let me breath. I was going nuts, but my deep breathing worked very well. Thank goodness.
The scope they did wasn't terrible either, so I'm glad it turned out well. I'm going to attempt to teach my classes tomorrow morning. It's only 9-12, so hopefully I can get in and out quickly and rest my voice in the afternoon!
Thanks, hawkeye, for thinking about me! I know anxiety is rough on you too--any suggestions for how to deal in a public place, such as a doc's office? I wanted to bury my head and just cry!
