I just have to say that your name alone makes me want to give you a hug! Cheer up, it will get better, you'll see.
Withdrawal does crazy things to us. A lot of us felt spacy for a good long while. And it's probably way worse for you as you gave up caffeine as well. I gotta say, that's Commitment! Kudos to you.
I have no idea why you aren't getting up more mucous. That was a never-ending issue for me for the whole first year I quit. But I wouldn't worry about it. We're all different. And the doctor already checked you and said things sounded fine, so no need to stress about it. I guess if something needs to come out, it will come out when it's ready.
The most important thing at this point is that you stick with your quit no matter what. You have come this far, keep it going. You may not feel that well now, but trust me, your body is going to love you for quitting. See how you feel in a few days. You might just find that you have turned a corner. Eventually, you will feel like yourself again, only way better. And then you can start to celebrate this awesome accomplishment.
