Sick

Yesterday, I was not feeling too well after lunch time. Despite putting on a very warm and fuzzy jacket, I never felt any colder. Asked my boss if he could excuse me for the afternoon, but he just smirked and thought I was just kidding him. So I soldiered on till 6pm.


My fingers were turning purple


Palm was white as a sheet

Geez... Upon reaching home, I went to bed straightaway.

I woke up at 830pm and my head was spinning like I have spent the past 2 hours in a whirlpool. My whole body was aching and felt like all the joints are going to give way soon. So I asked my dad to bring me to my panel doctor.



Doc: Whoa! Your temperature's 38.9°C leh!

Me: Really? I thought a normal person's body temperature is 36.9°C?

Doc:Ya la... You are having high fever. Are you having sore throat or flu?

Me: Only sore throat. No flu...

Doc: Let me see your throat. Say aaaaahhhhh...(while sticking an ice-cream stick into my mouth). Wa... you throat is inflamed too!

Me: Yeah lo... Can hardly swallow my own saliva.

Doc: Let me check your blood pressure... after applying all the apparatus on my left arm... hmmm...looks normal.


Doctor's table

Me: OK...

Doc: So you go home and take enough rest and dont forget to drink more water.

Me: Doc, can you grant me a Sick Leave for tomorrow? (with the kolien doggie eyes expression)

Doc: Hmmm.... Seems like your condition is pretty bad and I dont think you will recover overnight. OK la... I'll give you a day's sick leave.

Me: Thank you doc! (Yaaaaahooooooo! Don't have to go to work tomorrow)


Dispensary

Got my medicine and MC and went home.

Woke up this morning feeling much better, but not in tip-top condition.
