I think I am getting better. And I am thankful that I feel that way especially since my doctor is not in town for two weeks. In the past when I am in this situation, severe coughing with chest pains and sleepless nights, I would be well after taking antibiotics that are prescribed by my doctor. But since it would be days before I get to see him I decided to do some home remedy first. And since I really am in the mood to eat oranges it was not a problem.
I consumed two oranges a day, drink hot kalamansi juice at night, avoided cold water (which is torture for me!) and took a lot of bed rest. I even slept early. At first I thought it has no effect. But lo and behold, I was able to sleep well last night and today, the chest pain is gone! Thank heavens! Now my appetite is back but I still prefer eating oranges. Hopefully this will continue. Now, I am off for another ventosa session.
