Can’t. Stop. Coughing.

Oh boy, this cough is wearing me out! And I’ve only had it for a few weeks!  My husband has had it for almost 4 weeks now!

We went to the store and got some medicine for it.  The gal at the counter told us she’s been living on the stuff.

And then she offered this little bit of encouragement.  The cough can last up to 8 weeks!

Well, that made my day!

It’s very strange really.  It’s not like I’m sick, no fever, or achy bones. Just an annoying cough, that likes to be even more annoying just about the time I want to go to sleep.

Strange, the way our body works!

Time for another cup of hot tea with honey!  That seems to calm the coughing for a bit.

tea and med

And that, my friends is what I’m striving for!

Quiet and calm.  The tea is good for both! (and the medicine helps too)

It’s a good thing it works too, because it looks like I’m going to be in this mode for a little bit longer.

But hey! I’m half-way through this now.  Brighter days ahead!

    Sorry I clicked “like” on your post even though it doesn’t sound very likable. I hope you feel better soon. Maybe you will get better before the whole 8 weeks. That sounds horrible. Thank you for the “feel better” on my post yesterday. I do feet a lot better today. It warmed up about 20 degrees. Even though that is still cold it is better than it was. I was really tired this am but after a while I found my energy and feel pretty darn good right now. Now it is your turn.

      Oh, I’m so glad you are feeling better! I’m doing ok today, I got a pretty good nights sleep, so that helps, but once I wake up, so does the cough. 😦 Lots more tea today….
      I’ve been to Alaska, not sure I could live there – it’s too cold for me, but it sure is BEAUTIFUL!!!
      Stay warm!

  2. Get well soon. The Muscinex will be a great help with the cough and stay hydrated. It will pass before you know it!
