2013-01-16 – No matter what you do, your cough will last for 18 day, according to a study reported by NBC News. If you like numbers, the mean duration is actually 17.8 days with a range of 15.3 to 28.6 days.
I’m on day 15 today.
It apparently doesn’t matter much what the diagnosis is, your cough will last more than two weeks. According to the story, people think a cough lasts at most a week, so they run to the doctor for meds. If you get meds on day 8, you’ll be cured in a week or two. If you don’t get meds you’ll naturally heal in a week or two. It doesn’t matter what you do.
I’m beginning to see a pattern.
Monday I reported that drinking diet pop is associated with depression. And that not drinking diet pop was making me depressed.
It appears that I am not the only one. Another article from The Atlantic is telling me that consumption of pop is dropping off. In place of pop people are drinking water.
(But not beer, for some reason.)
By the way, I’m now drinking unsweetened almond milk. (And please don’t tell me how they abuse the poor little almonds when they milk them!)
