Sore throat and fever...

I'm not sure if it was because I didn't get to shower and change into dry clothes immediately after being drenched in the rain last Sunday. Or maybe it was because of the freezing temp at the office last Monday.

But from the way my voice sounded last Monday night, I knew that sore throat and a fever were about to set in. True enough, I slept on a Monday night without AC nor fan because I wanted to perspire. The room also reeked of Tiger Balm as I kept on rubbing the ointment on my throat and chest. I had a scarf around my neck to keep my throat warm. Hehe!

Thankfully, I work from home. Yesterday, I still worked but I didn't have to think about getting dressed and traveling to the office and be in a freezing environment again. After work, I decided to stop self-medicating and walked to the clinic a few blocks away from my home.

Surprisingly, there was no queue when I arrived at the clinic. I was the second person. The doctor asked if I wanted antibiotics. I politely said no. He just gave me paracetamol, lozenges and another medicine for the sore throat. Thank heavens my company has a good healthcare card. I don't have to shell out a single cent for the meds nor for the visit to the doctor.

After leaving the clinic, I passed by the supermarket to buy a few things and then made my way home.

I slept early last night. I took a nap from 8 to 11PM. When I woke up at 11, I just went to the toilet half-asleep to brush my teeth and shower. Then I went back to my room, turned off the lights and slept again. Hehe!

Hopefully, I will feel much better today.
