Sheesh, you're a bit behind the times! :p

Oh yeah. And if you want to supress your cough.......dark chocolate has a higher anti-tussive efficacy than any of the OTC cough meds :D

It's probably not a great idea to suppress a productive cough... Thats just asking for the bacteria to take up residency in all the goo. Benadryl thins the mucous sufficiently, so I cough a bit, but it's not big chunks that come out.

So far it sucks, two days in and I'm aching all over, got a slight temperature (though not as high as I expected - 38.2, but it might be higher than that 'cos I took my temp under my armpit because the thermometer I used is the one that I stick up animals bums... So I didn't really want it in my mouth/bunghole).

I have a productive cough, but benardyl has pretty much got that covered. Epic headache. And a bit of a tummy ouchie. Sleeping is difficult, and I have VERY odd dreams. More like hallucinations than dreams.


Nah it's probably just aids.

PJP much?

Hey that diagnosis is almost as thorough as the one you get when you ring up the local medical center and the nurse tries to palm you off because the DHB are to cheap to employ enough proper doctors!
