Thanks for Reminding Me

March 17, 2009 at 4:44 PM 3 comments

For the past four months, I have been afflicted with a chronic cough.

I’m fine when I wake up, and I’m mostly fine after running the mile for PE first period.

Then, like clockwork, I begin coughing during second period, trying to get rid of some phlegm that won’t be dislodged. For more or less the rest of the day, I would have periodic bouts of coughing.

My dad, the paranoia that he is, has several ever changing theories about my ailment. First it was just a normal cough. Then, after the first month, he started getting ideas about bronchitis and tuberculosis. Next he thinks it might be allergies.

His latest idea was that it was psychological. When I start coughing, he tells me to try think about not coughing.

But there’s the paradox. If I think about not coughing, I am still thinking about the subject of coughing, which sort of leads me to start coughing until I forget about thinking about coughing or not coughing altogether.

And sometimes, even when I’m not coughing, my dad just has to remind me to not cough and then that gets me thinking about coughing, and then I start coughing.
