I’m back! Well, I was back from our vacation awhile ago. It was our first trip to Hong Kong and we had such a great time. The food and shopping there is incredible! I can’t wait to go back again, it really is a foodie and shopaholic haven.
When I came back though, I was immediately down with Upper Respiratory Tract Infection, and I was in bed for 2 whole weeks! My fever had reached 38.5°C, the highest I’ve ever experienced. I couldn’t breathe because my nose was alternating between blocked and runny, and I couldn’t speak or swallow because my throat was coughed raw. Simple things like eating and drinking water were torturous, and to be honest I was scared stiff for awhile there because my fever simple wouldn’t subside. Just when I felt like things couldn’t get any worse, I was on 2 courses of antibiotics (when the first course didn’t work, the doctor switched to a stronger one), both of which caused diarrhea and had me running to the toilet more than five times a day, every single day (I am NOT exaggerating)!
After my fever started subsiding, my poor husband became really ill. I guess his immune system was continually being attacked by my germs and had finally lost the war. He started having high fever and it was my turn to take care of him, however sick I was. Looking back, I wonder how we would have coped if we were BOTH really ill at the same time!
Enough of TMI stuff. I’m finally back at work, still coughing and sniffing, but slowly recovering. HELLO AIR, I CAN BREATHE YOU PROPERLY AGAIN! The little things we take for granted. My lovely friends on MMF have given me plenty of tips and they’ve also recommended a neti pot, so I’m looking to buy that soon. I am so thankful for the MMF ladies, for I wouldn’t have recovered so quickly if not for their help. What a wealth of information and experiences these women have!
Work is extremely insane, with me clocking 8.30am to 11pm some days. After sitting at a computer all day, the last thing I want to do when I get home is to turn on my computer! I have been too tired to even watch TV, much less blog. So, no promises.
Take care, and stay healthy!
