This Chinese New Year started a little rocky for me. I had a cough on the first day of CNY, and within days it manifested into wheezing cough with phlegm. My airways was congested, I felt breathless whenever I cough.
I went to see a GP, and he suspected that I could be suffering from asthma. I had two treatments with nebulizer in his clinic, and my condition was slightly improved. I also told him about my medical condition; I had an autoimmune disease called Wegener’s Granulomatosis. So, could this be another form of attack?
He couldn’t rule that out. Since I do not have any history of asthma, it could also be due to lung infection or bronchitis. And he advised me to see my rheumatologist the next day for further examination.
I had to take a day off from work to see my rheumatologist. Then, he referred me to a respiratory specialist for further scans and tests. I was admitted to the hospital that day. It was quite unexpected.
I’m back with more medication now. Sigh. I need to take antibiotics for the next two weeks, and I really hated it. Every morning after taking the antibiotics, I feel nauseous and dizzy for about two hours before the side effects start to take-off.
They said that in year 2013, people born in the year of Snake will offend the Tai Sui. I’m not a superstitious person, but sometimes things happened and I just have to believe it. It’s going to be a tough year for me, but I’m prepared for it.
V brought me to the temple to pray to Tai Sui. It’s my first time praying to Tai Sui, and it’s really not that difficult. My brother-in-law also went to the temple to pray to Tai Sui for me, which I’m extremely thankful for.
Next week, I’ll be seeing my rheumatologist to discuss on a new treatment for Wegener. It’s an expensive treatment, but I’ve decided to go proceed. Ultimately, money can be earned back but health not.
I want a clean bill of health by 2014! Jiayou!
