I also know that my new doctor is looking into the possibility that yet another auto-immune disease is the cause of my cough. So, I started researching as well. It just might be something called Sjogren's Sydrome. That gives me a tiny bit of hope, because it's not the worst disease ever, and at least it would be a diagnosis.
If I go back to work on Monday, and the cough is just as bad as last week, I'm going to ask for a leave of absence. A rest after all these days of coughing might just keep me sane.
So, really though, now that I feel better, I'm here to say: I love Vera Farmiga.
Does that seem like an odd digression? No, no it's not. This is my place. I can write whatever I want. Put up pictures I want. Digress all over the place. Break all the grammar rules. Use the word "really." It's really amazing. Writing straight from my disordered mind is a life-affirming experience. I'm a little bit happy right now.
