My Drug of Choice

NyQuil. God, I love that stuff.  For the past 48 hours, I have had a death cough, sore throat, and labored breathing.  My neck and shoulder muscles ache to the point where it hurts to hold up my head.  I've been alternately shivery and sweating.  I've been--in a word--miserable.

I've worked my way through a couple of bags of cough drops and a whole lot of cough suppressants.  I've tried hot tea and juice for Vitamin C.  I've taken hot showers and curled up on the couch with a box of tissues.

The only thing that has provided any relief is NyQuil.  I realize that it's only because NyQuil has about 25% alcohol, which knocks you right out (which is why DayQuil doesn't do much at all), but wow is it the best sleep ever.   It really is the night-time, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head fever so you can rest medicine.


  1. I've been in the exact same boat the last few days. And I too am writing love notes to Nyquil. Feel better!

  2. You bet! That is good stuff indeed:)

  3. But it tastes horrible. I can't even swallow it without getting sick :(. I hope your feeling better now though. :)
