I’d started gathering some supplies (cleaning products, some canned food) for a friend who said there was no bleach in his area, but now can’t deliver them. It isn't likely to be coronavirus but I’ve got something causing a horrible cough. It started days ago with what I thought were spring allergies - watering eyes and nonstop sneezing.
Short story, I took benadryl which was a mistake as it locked up my chest, then spent 2 days trying to reverse the effect with hot tea, cough syrup with guafensin, humidifer. I also have to sleep in the recliner, almost sitting all the way up.
My head and neck now hurt with the violence of coughing. Hall’s cough drops with menthol are the best thing, they numb the throat and slow down the frequency of the coughs.
Most of the cough drops at CVS are out of stock online, as well as on Amazon.
I don’t seem to have any fever, and I’m able to take good, deep breaths so if it weren’t for the feeling that I need to cough, and the pain of doing that, I’d feel not so bad. My thermometer seems to be broken, though, and there aren’t any available to buy.
Please everyone take care and don't go on unnecessary trips right now, it's not a great idea.
