I thought after drinking those antibiotics I’d be fine, but no. I’m still sick and I have another week to drink another set of antibiotics. I think this time I must buy what’s being prescribes even though it will cause a fortune. I must also follow the diet restrictions and other stuffs that needs to be avoided. :(
I was lucky to be born without any congenital disorders. I was never hospitalized. I just had the usual “sickness” that ever child would pass through in their life. The usual cough & colds, fever and diarrhea. But, that was before.
While I was in college, I was aware of all the diseases, yet I became sick almost every year. It was my first time to go to the hospital for a check up with an EENT doctor. When I heard the child crying, I really imagined that same procedure would also be done, but fortunately it wasn’t. My second visit was when I had this cough for almost a week, I have decided to go for a check up, and then the doctor advised me to have a chest x ray examination. I was really speechless because something is bothering me. I thought, I had acquired my brother’s disease, but fortunately it wasn’t. It was after a week that I found out that I just had a pneumonia.
Just recently, I went to the hospital my work shift because I had an on and off fever during my shift. I waited for how many hours to be checked, but the doctor didn’t even placed her stethoscope at my back, but she had advised me to have some tests done. She just prescribed some cold medicine. Then, suddenly she saw that my fingers were cyanotic. She asked me if that was really happening whenever I feel cold. It was not usual, but the reason why it was cyanotic because of my pants. The color of had went off to my fingers. She really thought that it was Raynaud’s. But, hey I know what she’s talking about. And I washed my hands so she can see clearly that it was just from my pants.
I had the 2 tests done the following day. After my work shift, I went to my mom’s workplace to have some tests done. The results would be out after some hours, but I don’t have time to wait because I need to sleep. So, she was the one just waited for the results.
My mom woke me up and then told me that I had that kind of infection, and my hemoglobin level is low. I can’t control myself back then, that I just cried and kept on thinking why’d I have that. It was really unacceptable. I know that I should be understanding because I had studied it, but no. I opened my MS books and searched for it. I was still crying while reading it.
I went to work so blue. I looked into the internet for some foods to be avoided and foods to be taken. It was contradicting. And it was like a hunger strike notice.
It’s not really funny being sick. I can’t even eat the foods that I want. It’s a good thing that my mom told me that I can still eat the usual meal that I’m having, but I should make sure that I will drink lots of water and take my medicine religiously.
I wished that this would just disappear in a snap! I’m really hoping to be better soon. I need some energy to be able to participate in our company’s sports fest.
