Just spent an hour reading forums under 'laryngeal spasms' which yielded a lot of conflicting information. Symptoms are always the same- tickle in throat, spasmodic cough sometimes leading to vomiting, lack of breath, watering eyes, red face- but the causes range from acid reflux to something wrong with the vocal chords. There's a pressure point one can try but like many people on the forum, the only thing that definitely works for me is sucking on a candy. (So much for 'avoid sugar' in the acid reflux category.)

However it's also avoid caffeine and carbonation. No more Pepsi, and how lucky my favourite coffee shop is closing for a week's vacation.

Bought the second Rivers of London comic y'day, the store being out- again- of vol 1. Is fine. I want to read this when it's finished. Also their version of Nightingale is not my version, and Peter is not nearly cheeky enough- though come to that, I should check how cheeky he is out loud, and how often.
