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.
