Filthie's Mobile Fortress Of Solitude
Tuesday, 17 September 2019
This fuggin cough I have has gone bronchial. It’s right down in my lungs and it’s really, REALLY starting to tick me off! Yesterday I spent a couple hours on light yard work but was done right in afterward. Nights are worst - I lay down and my lungs fill up. It was great when I was a kid - we had this chink for a family doctor and he’d load me up with antibiotics and I’d be done with a cough like this in a week. Of course the eggheads at the clinics are all afraid of antibiotic resistant superbugs now, and my bunghole doctor doesn’t want to see me unless it turns into pneumonia or if I wake up dead!
I’m not dead yet... but it’s time for the big guns. I’ve been drinking Benylin the way Jack drinks cheap malt liquor and it kinda-sorta helps. But it’s time to self medicate!
I have an old bottle of aviation grade Buckley’s Mixture that has been putrefying under the sink for a couple years now. Tomorrow if I am still hacking, I am going to slam half the bottle and see what happens. If that doesn’t work, one of the witch doctors at church gave me a bottle of Oregano extract. Apparently ya mix a few drops with a glass of water and it should help. They said it’s almost as rotten as Buckley’s... but I will be the judge of that! I’ll take a jiggerful and see what happens.
If the worst should happen and I don’t make it, I’d like to be buried at Sunnybrook Farm. Don’t anybody let Quartermain desecrate my corpse.
Hey - have a great Tuesday!

After a month of hacking, and generally feeling like crap, an old woman told me to eat a raw mustard green leaf. I did - it was horrible - but it cleared me up.ReplyDelete
FWIW... you need a bronchodilator..Cal the quack up and ask him for a prescription for Advair. (Fluticasone / Salmeterol). Its a steroidal inhaler.. One hit a day for about three days does the job for me, otherwise I go on hacking for months.ReplyDelete

A mug of coltsfoot and mullein tea will break up the congestion too. 1 teaspoon each of the dried herbs steeped in 2 cups of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes; strain; honey and lemon juice to taste. Or if you want to take over-the-counter drugs get Musinex(guaifenesin) and drink tons of water.ReplyDelete
I will try them all folks. I gotta lick this thing before deer season...ReplyDelete
