The topic: Me and colds
Colds always, always, always end up hitting me with a bad cough. The sore throat usually only lasts a day or so. And the headaches I get are a result of the cough.
But the cough just lasts and lasts and lasts. And it's much worse at night. And nothing we've got in the house seems to help much. Triaminic is a joke. I did find that Robitussin cough and decongestant stuff Brian got for my last cold. I started taking it last night. I did more than the recommended dosage.
It's supposed to last up to four hours. Ha.
Try three hours and forty-five minutes. Then the coughing starts. It can be so bad, that my head starts throbbing. For some reason, it's not so bad in the daytime, which is good, but it's rough at night.
Brian went to the shop today, he needs to get the tractor stuff finished, done, over with, so he can get started for serious getting the property ready for a new home. And he took with him a note that I wrote this morning after looking up the Robitussin syrup that has always worked the best for me.
Maximum Strength Cough for Adults.
Let's hope I can get more than three hours and forty-five minutes of sleep at a time.
