Think of it less as a cough and more as a purr
So, after a month of having this ridiculous deep cough, I finally decided to go to the doctor. When it dawned on her that I come in with bronchitis once every 3 months or so, she started probing around and decided the following: I've developed allergy-induced asthma because of my cat.
Her prescription: "You have definitely got to get rid of your cat."
My response: "Well, I'm not doing that. Can I take allergy medicine?"
What I'd really like to have said: "Excuse me, but FUCK THAT! Stinker is a living, breathing creature that I love and am responsible for. I'm not going to just "give him up," doctor. If one of your kids was stressing you out and that stress was causing high blood pressure, would you get rid of your kids? I think not. I've seen the commercials about the domestic tranquility that Zyrtec can pour over a family with cat allergies. I've seen them! Find another answer, DOCTOR!"
I am not happy. She gave me some antibiotics and an inhaler and some claritin, so we'll see how this cocktail fairs. All I can say for certain is that I will not be living without my four legged friend anytime in the near future, and that's a fact. I will not be denied my Stinker. I will not!
