Cough. . .
Getting sick on tour is a huge pain in the ass and bummer. It always starts with one person and then spreads so easily. It makes sense why it work's out the way it does. Five people in a close space together for days on end, plus sleeping on random floors and wearing yourself out every night by playing show after show. You end up not being able to rest your body the way it should be rested when you normally start to get sick. You can only do so much when your on tour to take care of a cold.
One main reason why I'm discussing this is because four out of the five of us right now have a cough that sucks. I would have to say that mine is the most annoying and painful, well at least that's what I have gathered. It prevents me from sleeping at night and just hurts my throat, neck and chest. When your throat is your means to communicate and also your role in the band, it starts to take a toll. I get very annoyed and pissy at times. I know I can only do so much, but it's one of those things that keeps nagging me. Kind of like a hangnail that keeps getting caught on the sleeve of your sweater. Well I'm hoping to kick this cough soon, I'll keep taking some medicine and try to take it as easy as possible on top of drinking plenty of fluids.
