Well done finding the pants and socks. I don’t think my husband would ever change them if I didn’t do it every few days. He used to be so meticulous too. That lingering cough is dreadful and I always resort to endless ways to control it especially at night. It lasts three weeks apparently.
Mine started on the 29th October on the first day of my 6 days of respite. I was at the top of Catbells in the lakes and suddenly got a sore throat. By the time I got to the bottom I was coughing and shaking. It completely wiped out my break and has lingered ever since. I also had my first ever bout of stress incontinence in my life to my great embarrassment caused by coughing although I have seem to have overcome that now (thank goodness) The chesty cough remains though.
We have to take more care of ourselves
