Buckley's Chest Congestion Mixture.

I'm sick. Grab my knees, tripod my body, and take a pathetic breath before hacking myself into a seizure-sick. Yesterday, I was seriously considering asking the hospital to put me in a self-induced coma and wake me up when it was over.
Then my husband brought home some "cough medicine". I'm not a big fan of the cough medicines I've tried. Robitussin, Vicks, Nyquil. They are booze in a dark bottle-cures. I don't get any relief from the sickness, just a masking of a few symptoms. That is why I, never having heard of Buckley's, didn't even glance at the bottle, just hugged my husband and thanked him for thinking of me while he was out.
About 12:37 a.m., I was racked with sweat, coughing, and heaving. My chest was on fire, my throat was hoarse, and I just wanted to pass-out. I glanced at the Buckley's, opened the box, and shook the bottle. After I opened it, the smell hit me, VICKS?? I read the box furiously. Is this suppose to rub on my skin, or go in my mouth? Buckley's Chest doesn't smell like anything that is suppose to enter someone's mouth. I was desperate, and thought, the more the better, right? Actually, I had no adverse reaction to it, and I took about 4 - 5 teaspoons in one bitter swallow.
I thought maybe my husband was trying to off me, and remembered there was no policy against my life. So, I looked up "Buckley's Tastes bad" online, and found ePinions and others ranting about effectiveness, and awful taste. Tasting awful is what Nyquil, or diet tea is. Buckley's is an animal unto itself. It actually tastes like poison. But it works like a charm. I actually almost feel, cured.
I recommend this.
