I’m Not Crazy…

Alright alright…I admit it. I’m sick. You happy now? I’m freely admiting that I’m unwell. My head constantly feels like it’s been used for a monotonous drumset and my throat feels like it’s stuffed with some overinflated baloon that was made out of sandpaper. Definitely not the best way to go through the day.

Has anyone noticed KL has been pretty hot and humid it has been lately? It feels like a heat wave over here. But the current temperature it keeps registering is about 30 degrees celcius. So either I’m burning up…or the temperature meter is off by alot. That along with me being unwell is really starting to burn me up…heat is not good for a headache…which seems to be amplified the moment I step outside any air conditioned area. Then my head would feel like baker’s dough…constantly kneeded and prodded by some unseen hands.

Many of you have asked why don’t I see a doctor. Well here is my reason for it. Short of my illness killing me, there is no way I’m going to be given painkillers and antibiotics for something so minor like this. Minor you say? Yes…minor. I may have one constantly bad headache, but I don’t have a fever. Which means my body doesn’t really consider the infection to be worthwhile anyway. If I were to take whatever the doctor gave me…I could probably get it over the counter in a pharmacy.

Hell…didn’t anyone tell you? Prolonged use of antibiotics tend to make any bacteria stronger in the long term…so it’s taken when necessary…which probably means when I can’t lift my arms to suck soup through a straw…

Then there is the whole going there and waiting and dignosis and waiting again and going home. It’s just a big waste of time…or I’m too lazy to get off my butt to the clinic. Either way…I’m staying put on my bed.

So now, all I have to do is to sit and wait this one up. There is always something about an illness that makes you feel like it will last for the rest of your life. I wonder if anyone else has that feeling? You know…like when you lose your hearing in one ear…you tend to wonder will this be permanent? Or maybe that’s just me I guess.

I guess the only thing left to do is to get some sleep. I promised someone I’d sleep early anyway. Let’s just hope my air conditioning can keep me cool. Nothing like a headache in the middle of the night to ruin a good night’s sleep.
