|In the bunker|
It's hard to sleep with a hacking cough, but I eventually collapsed on Saturday night. I woke up early Sunday morning in a cold sweat, wetter than I get from running seven miles. Whatever affected me seems to be mostly gone. I was even able to run four miles on Sunday. Looks like I'm not dying after all.
Over the weekend, instead of the usual trolls, I was getting cold remedy sggestions. I'll list them. Do you have any others? Minus the alcohol?
1) Mucinex DM. - I've been using this the past few years, and no cold has turned into bronchitis or pneumonia.
2) Actifed. - A reader writes, "Actifed works great for me, although it makes you sleepy."
3) Delsym. "the best-very best-non-alcoholic cough/cold medicine is Delsym on the regular drug store shelf. Get mine at Walgreen's. About $12 in an orange box. I take it for everything related to cold and it is fabulous."
4) Jewish penicillin. - "Get some fatty chicken parts, a big pot of water, some carrots, celery some pepper, salt, basil and some talliricos chicken base for soups......... Mom and pop called it jewish penicillin.... Works for me. Hope you're feeling better after you try it."
Thanks to everyone for being so nice.
