Well, I just went to the pharmacy to get myself some cough syrup. I was up again last night for hours coughing up my lungs! It was incredibly annoying. Lucky for me, both my morning and evening class cancelled for today, so I can get some extra rest and maybe actually get over this cold!
Anyway, I got the cough syrup and the pharmacist told me to take it 3 times a day after eating. No problem. Then I got home and opened up the little box and discovered my cough ‘syrup’ comes in powder form. I’ve just been sitting here using a terrible internet translator and the Turkish instructions to try and figure out what I’m supposed to do with the stuff! Online translation sites are so, so useless. I already knew this, but I don’t have many other options. Anyway, I just had to make an educated guess, mix a spoon of the powder with some water, knock it back and wait and see what happens. I wouldn’t do this with most things, but I figure that cough syrup usually isn’t the most dangerous of substances. Fingers crossed it’ll do the trick!
