Curing a cough


I just got over the worst cough.  I am not going to use the word “cold”, because I only had one symptom bad enough to complain about.  The terrible cough.  It lasted for over a week.  Woke me up 3 times a night at least.  I’ve tried it all.  Sometimes time itself is the only cure.

Mike’s trick is drinking hot tea with honey.  Put it a large Kwik Trip glass in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Then he likes to use a Lipton Sweet Tea bag and honey.  Drink one of these right away when waking up in the morning, another when you get home from work, and then another before bed.  You don’t have to worry about not getting enough fluids! 

I like to drink Nyquil before I got to sleep.  When I woke up in the middle of the night coughing one of the nights, Mike grabbed a different bottle of Nyquil Cough, and he told me I was taking the wrong stuff!  I also tried sleeping with two pillows to keep my head more elevated.

I did not exercise during the week of this dreadful cough, to not exacerbate the cough and to sleep in.  I also used a prescription from my doctor for Tessalon Perles. 

The weird thing about this cough, it started on a Friday evening.  My mom and I left to go to our cabin, so I did not have to go back to work until Tuesday.  I stayed home most of Tuesday morning.  I did not have a cough during the day, it hit me at night keeping me from getting good sleep.  I was finally able to sleep all night the following Saturday, a week later.  I went to work, but when I got home at night, I drank my tea and put my feet up.  I’m glad that’s over!
