Everyday Things

Down. Sick.

After a week of fighting against the virus around me, finally I lost the battle. I’m down with flu and fever.

Yesterday morning, I was sneezing and shivering in the office. I thought I can struggle until 6pm and go to see my doctor after work. But in the end, I gave up. My hands were trembling so badly that I couldn’t even type on my computer. I told my boss that I had to leave at 11am to see a doctor.

So, I went to the clinic immediately. I felt like crap all day – sneezing, stuffy nose, trembling hands and fever. It became worse at night as the symptoms start to manifest. I couldn’t sleep peacefully last night. One moment, I was cold. The next moment, I was sweating. I curled up in my comforter and I can hardly move.

I’m feeling much better today. I applied one more day of medical leave so that I can rest at home. The Fenfedrin tablets were my savior; they helped to clear my airways so that I can breathe normally. The fever is gone too.

I hate to be sick. Works are piling up and I couldn’t afford to miss a single day. I don’t want to spread the virus to my family members at home. I need to recover as soon as possible.

It’s time to take my medicine and take a short nap.

Hi Da Sao

Heard from mum that you are down with a fever and read from your blog that the virus had taken a better hold.

Really hope you get well tomorrow.

Besides taking Vit C 1000mg (timed released), I am also religiously taking Garlic Pearls.

According to studies, garlic contains a potent compound – Allicin. This compound rallies against foreign invaders in our body and is a powerful exterminant towards a wide spectrum of bacteria and virus.

Da Sao… get well soon


Get well soon, Emily!

Emily, wishing a speedy recovery.

Hope that you’re all well by now! *hugz*
