I've had a few of those. And several glasses of orange juice. At least
after I stopped feeling queasy at the very idea of eating anything (and of
course the instructions on the antibiotics read "take with food"). I
suspect that popping four ibuprofen at a time every few hours until the
pain in every muscle and joint of both arms and my torso finally lessened
enough that I was able to get to sleep after two days of lying there unable
to sleep except for a couple of times about an hour each time, then
sleeping much of the next two days and only getting up occasionally for an
hour or so did more good than the chicken soup.
Maybe instead of the orange juice I should have gotten V-8 juice and added
some cayenne pepper to see if that would have burned it out of me any
faster . . .
BTW, they call it "chronic bronchitis" because it recurs over and
over. Most of the time, "chronic bronchitis" is what they call a "smoker's
cough." Great: I got the disease without even getting to enjoy getting it
. . .
