I have had a cold for the past 4 weeks now. It's not surprising that it has lingered so long since I don't ever get enough sleep and for me, that is key to my health.
Now, a while ago I talked about the beauty of Zicam. You can't fault the Zicam. The key to that product is also it's largest flaw. It depends upon you taking it at the right time. Human error is always highest. Doggone it, I knew better.
My colds always progress in exactly the same manner. Sore throat and sneezing. Congestion and runny noses. Finally, after about a week I'll get a barking cough for another week.
Fortunately, this year there is a new fantastic product for those of us suffering with that annoying, yet common, cold.
Unfortunately for me, this cough has lasted for about three weeks and I kind of think I got a new cold as well or something.
Regardless, one day I saw a commercial for Delsym. I generally am a sucker for commercials. Especially for a product that says that it will prevent coughing for 12 hours. Generally, when I get a cold, there will be a couple days when my hubby has to sleep in the spare room because of my coughing.
It's bad. And uncontrollable. I use Vicks VapoRub (I still love you, Vicks!), cough drops, Nyquil (never actually helps me sleep and I hate the taste), and my humidifier runs on high. In spite of all this, I still wake up to coughing fits. Fits, I tell you!
Until Delsym. This Thursday, I declare that I am in love with Delsym. It WORKS. I have not once woken up coughing with my three week cough.
I could even likely sleep through the night if it weren't for my sweet babboo. She's darn cute but has us currently in the middle of a new round of sleep training.
