I am just getting over a cold!  The best thing for me is as much sleep as I can get combined with drinking lots of tea!  If your throat is really sore, you could also gargle salt water – not pleasant tasting but it usually works.

OMG I knooow!!  I’ve been exhausted for the last three days because I’ve been up with a dry hacking cough all night.  On top of it all we just got a new kitten on Thursday night so he’s been a bit rowdy in the night time too.  Thank god I work at home so I can take it easy 😉

I was literally about to log on to WB last night at 3am when I tears were streaming down my face from such violent coughing, to find out if anyone had a solution!

So far I’ve just been sucking on Cepacol extra strength tablets.  They’re disgusting ’cause they numb your whole mouth but it somewhat soothes the throat.

Urgggg!  I was sick for two weeks with severe bronchitis and am STILL coughing!  Saw the doctor 3 times and several different drugs.  I’ll be happy when the cough is gone.  Hope you’re all feeling better!

For the girls with the cough that won’t go away:


Get some raw ginger root from your grocery store  and cut off an inch . Take off the skin and chop up the ginger. Boil it with water to make a ginger tea. Add a little honey/lemon to taste and drink away.  It’s my mom’s recipe and has gotten rid of many a cough (especially the ones after bronchitis which never seem to away).

Good luck!

PS. I also do a salt water gargle along with this but that’s mostly because of my sore throat.

I just started feeling yucky yesterday. Yell No cough yet, but I can feel it in my ears. My daughter has been taking it easy on me and telling me she’s worried about me, which makes me smile everytime.

@MAlove: Thanks for the honey lemon tip! I just came down with a nasty cold, and I am getting no relief from pharmacy medication :(. This really does soothe it >.<

I am just getting over this thing!  I took Mucinex and Dayquil the first few days and then reduced to Mucinex and Sudafed.
