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.
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!
