The solution to this H. Pylori virus in quite simple. A huge regiment of pills, lots of pills. Here’s what I have to take to get better:
- 1 antibotic 4x a day
- 1 antibiotic 3x a day
- 1 Pilosec in the am
- 1 Prilosec in the pm
- 2 Pepto-Bismol tablets 4x a day.
Man. I have a little bag I carry with me that contains all the pills I need to take during the day and when I’m home at night. If this is what it feels like to be a pill junky, I don’t want any part of it. It’s absolutely insane.
To make matters worse, I when to pick up the prescriptions last night and they gave me 2 for someone else. My name is spelled quite unusually, but there is another woman who also spells her name like I do. She has a birth day around the same day I do and we, apparently, go to the same pharmacy. I have to take them back today. I’m used to this, we have the same DR and our files were completely fowled up, so much so that it took about 6 months to completely sort out.
I’ve been promised that I’ll start feeling better here in a couple of day. I certainly hope so. However, I’m really worried that all these antibiotics are going to kill the good bacteria in my body and cause me all sorts of problems. I’ll cross that hill when I come to it, I guess.
So thats it… I’m on my way to being on the mend. I’ll let you know how it progresses!
