Tag / drugs

I was feeling slightly stoned on Wednesday evening, popped a couple 500mg paracetemol and I thought I was going to be alright. Went to work yesterday but lasted only half a day before taking off. Slept at home for a bit before heading to clinic.


I had high fever (over 38c) and the doctor suspected that I might have dengue (I had it some 12 years ago and it wasn’t fun). Got a blood test and this cocktail of drugs to help ease the inflamed throat, coughing, and fever.

Anyway, apart from this physical virus infection in REAL LIFE ™, I’ve also been tagged a few times on the 25 random facts thingy on facebook. I might as well do it here.

I slept with only minor interruption since yesterday afternoon. It’s almost 11am now and I’m feeling better, blood test result came out and luckily the platelet count is normal, no dengue. I’m hoping a bit more sleep and this whole thing will be over.
