"It's not the cough that carries you off.
It's the coffin they carry you off in."
That's one of my Mom & Dad's favorite funny sayings. That pretty much sums up my past two weeks. The flu left, but it didn't leave me alone. I'm into my 3rd week now living with the effects. Zinc lozenges help me tremendously when I have a cold, but I've tried so many types of medicines I've decided nothing really works for a cough, although I haven't tried Grandpa Twist's remedy. He had a honey/whiskey mix you take by a tablespoonful. No, it wasn't an excuse to drink whisky. You probably didn't get as much alchohol as in a dose of Nyquill. I've wondered about a honey, vinegar, lemon juice mix though.
What I'd really like to try is the sweat lodge cure. Get a good hot steam room with maybe some eucalyptus and menthol going on.
I'm open to suggestions.
