I feel better ever day. If I get "over this" without antibiotics, it will be a miracle. I've been using Dioxychlor twice a day. I'm still coughing a bit, but it no where near like it was on Wednesday & Thursday. I was coughing so hard on those days I was actually vomiting.
My nose has cleared up quite a bit. I think I'm on the downhill slope of getting well. I just have to be cautious and keep up with the Dioxychlor. Also have to steer clear of others that have colds or I'll get it again.
The big news from today is that North Carolina now has smoke-free restaurants and bars. This means I can go out to eat without feeling sick from 2nd hand smoke. My husband and I went out to eat this morning and didn't have to specify where we wanted to sit. We smelled clean air in the restaurant instead of having to hold our breaths when we walked by the bar to get to our seats.
