I am sitting here, recuperating, from the sickest I think I have ever been. 6 days in bed. With the worst cough imaginable…complete with my hustling to the bathroom for a steam shower at all times day and night.
(Influenza morphing into pneumonia. I think. I never was tested for influenza. I did have the x-ray for pneumonia.)
And one thing alone has helped so much: Honey Water.
More than mucinex max (ugh, I dislike suppressants), more than steam showers, and cough drops. A cup of this has helped so much. I hope it helps you, too.
1 – 2 TBS honey in 12 ounces (or so) hot water. Sip slowly.
