New Year, New...

Sickness... Not new sickness but just good old fever, cold and sore throat. Imagine waking up at three in the morning with tonsil all swollen and nose flooded and oozed with mucous. Immediately I smsed The Doctor and we ended up chatting on the phone for almost three hours. Helped him kill time while waiting for his morning shift in the hospital.

It got worse when I woke up in the morning at about ten. Raging fever and throbbing headache. My housemate was kind enough to send me to the clinic. You'd think things can't get any worse in a clinic but it did. I had to wait two hours for my turn. The thing about having a bad fever is the body can't regulate it's own temperature and I started to shiver in the waiting room. They don't even have a blanket for me to keep warm... My bones started to ache and I've never been in such pain from a fever prior to this.

Got me really annoyed. There I was in pain for two hours and the nurse did nothing to help. Just sat behind the reception and be bimbotic... They work in an extremely slow pace... Customer service is obviously not their priority.

When my turn finally came, I was already hypoglycemic and I couldn't stop shivering. Took them long enough to attend to me... The doctor took my temperature and it was 39 degree Celsius! My bones were aching more than ever and I couldn't wait to get out of the room. It was way too cold and my bones were really aching.

Got my prescription of many colorful pills and went grocery shopping. Bought lots of juicy fruits and for some odd reason, I got Koko Crunch... Guess I just wanted to eat something that doesn't require cooking. It's been ages since I had Koko Crunch. Oh and I got Vitagen too, grape and original flavor.

I feel much better now but still light headed and bones are still aching. Most probably I won't go to work tomorrow. I could use the rest and I haven't done my laundry... It has been pouring yesterday and today I'm sick.

I shall go get my mug of Koko Crunch now. Hungry...

You know you love me.

You poor thing. Hope you are getting better now. I could relate to your whole experience. I'm very prone to tonsilitis (inflammation of tonsils) and I used to fall sick and have fever every month when I was staying in campus. Take more water and Vitamin C. Hot drinks and soup will help too.
Take care and rest well!
