You have well and truly outstayed your welcome mr...

Yes you my lousy, annoying, tickly, irritating COUGH that I had for over a week and shows no signs of sodding off.

I have not had 1 decent night sleep for the last 8 nights and looks like tonight will be no different.

I have finally given in and bought cough medicine but doesn't seem to make any difference.

It looks like I may be going back to doctors again next week, as my throat and voice are no better. I have never had a cough this bad I don't think in my life. It really is starting to get me down mainly because I can't sleep properly.

At least I may have the bed to myself tonight as my other half is out and think he may stay out, so I won't have to listen to him snoring again tonight.

I hope you find something to give you relief from your cough soon. My doctor will prescribe some highly effective cough syrup if the cough keeps me from sleeping for more than a couple nights.

OK weird one alert ... if you have any vapour rub (like petroleum jelly but smelling of menthol and eucalyptus) then rub some on the soles of your feet before bed, put a pair of socks on and leave until morning. Also if you have any honey, a spoonful of that will help your throat. Hope you feel better soon
