Just when I thought I would be safe from being sick of any kind of flu, none the least swine flu, since most of my students had already taken the booster shot against the dreaded virus, I caught this ordinary kind of flu. It must be from the party I attended last weekend and being in the group of people can sometimes never be safe when all sorts of flu are in the background. I had to call in sick yesterday because of headache and throat problems. And just when I needed to give exams, submit evaluations and all. The pressure of work and being sick collided at the wrong time. Now I’m still feeling a little out of sorts with running nose and cracking voice. I went to work today in spite of this, to meet the deadline. It will be school holidays in three weeks time so a little patience would not harm. Hurry, hurry days!
Speaking of swine flu vaccine, I am quite apprehensive to take the shot because of my prolonged cough. I still have this cough in which the doctors’ prescribed medicine failed to help. Darn. On account of this, I met with another doctor in Davao during our stay there and I got three kinds of medicine. My cough had alleviated though not completely. I still have one medicine from the three and just taking it when necessary.
I realized that even though my students were vaccinized, I wouldn’t be excused from having the said virus although I vehemently hope I would be. But I wouldn’t know who I’d be sitting with in a tram or how safe the public places would be. Am I getting paranoid? Lol! A little bit maybe. I don’t actually think of the presence of the virus when I go anywhere, who does. My silly thought has just provoked me to lay out a probable instance of catching it. Achoo! But with this running nose, I feel like I’m carrying a tap in my nose.

Yes, I heard. I did rest one day but it was not enough.
Don’t panic and take proper rest. Get well soon :).
Thanks, Ruchi. I feel better now except for my clogged nose.
Have plenty of rest, drink lots of water and eat fresh fruits… Get well soon!

The problem here is that the tap water is too cold to drink when it’s winter. Thank you. 🙂
it’s no fun being sick but i’m sure you’ll be much better soon. best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Thank you so much. I do feel better now but I wish this running nose will stop soon, too.
It’s so hard when one has a runny nose, hirap pa minsang huminga. Rest lang at plenty of fluids ang katapat nyan. Hope you’re feeling better now.

Ganun nga, lalo na sa gabi, nakabukas yung bibig para makahinga, hehee. Buti na nga lang pala at naalala ko na bumili pala kami ng Vicks sa Davao at nakatulong naman. Thank you, sis.
Importante talaga ang tamang pahinga para tumibay ang katawan natin laban sa sakit. Kung may sapat na pahinga ang katawan nakakagawa ito ng depensa sa mga nagbabantang sakit.

Tama ka diyan! Kaya kung pwede lang sana ay baguhin ang sistema na magtrabaho ng limang beses sa isang linggo at gawin na lang apat para sagad ang pahinga bago trabaho uli.
Mas mabuti siguro kung may mga magtratrabaho para sayo para may oras ka sa mga gusto mo gawin. kaya lang mga boss ang kalimitang nakakagawa nito or may ari ng companya.
