The Lingering Cold

So I’ve had a cold for over a week now and while most of the symptoms have cough-syrupgone away, the cough has not. In fact, it’s gotten persistent and to be perfectly honest, I’m tired of it. Someone suggested it might be whooping cough. I don’t think so. The signs just aren’t similar at all to the contagious virus. However, if the cough doesn’t go away by this week, I’ll have to find a way to get to the doctor just to make sure there’s not a serious health issue going on. And I swear, every time I cough my head hurts and my chest hurts.  It sucks!
