I think I'm sick. Maybe. Probably not, but, you know...

I have an itchy-burny chest, makes your head hurt, can't see straight cough sort of a thing.

It's annoying.

It's so annoying, that I couldn't even sleep last night because I kept waking myself up.

I even woke up the DadGuy.

You know it's a REAL cough when it wakes up the person next to you.

And yet....

I can't decide if I think it's worthy of a $25 copay or not.

I mean, what if it's just a cold?

What if I'm a big fat idiot and I go see the doctor and he's all "You're such a pansy. Get out of my office."

I mean, what if I'm completely over-reacting?

What would I even say when I make the appointment?

"Hello. Yes, I'd like to see Dr. X. What? Oh, nature of visit? I might be dying.... I think. I don't know. I mean, I feel okay like THIS SECOND, but as soon as I hang up I'll start dying again. Does he treat this type of thing often? I mean, I guess it's a cough..."

It's quite the conundrum.
