Oh, Bummer!

So, the single annual influenza attack seems to have launched itself full force on me... What I originally imagined to be sneezes due to some extra dusty encounters (after all it is incredibly dusty out there even with the rains) prolonged into even more sneezy attacks which then led to a hacking cough on Friday which I suppose wasn't helped much by the fact that we had our bi-annual stock count that day... more dusty encounters!

Saturday saw me fighting a sore throat and the emergence of the sniffles. Due to my lack of sleep on Friday night (because of the cough which was really, really bad), I skipped gym just to lounge around at home, reading and battling a new addiction (a game)... It's Sunday night... the sniffles continue, and so does the coughing and sneezing fits. I might have run out of 'gesundheits'! to cover all that violent sneezing. I'm just waiting for the fever to arrive so that I can go and see the doctor (hopefully only once) for some medication.

  1. Errr... the purpose of this post is just to keep up with the blogging momentum. My initial idea to blog about any of the current issues plaguing my mind was interrupted by my need to sneeze and cough and play that nasty game I am now addicted to. That said, I'm actually quite fine... after all this is only a small case of the sniffles... I hope :)

  7. Did you know that 'Gesundheit' is only what you should say after the first sneeze? After the second sneeze you should say 'Schoenheit' and after the third sneeze you should say 'Intelligenz', which means if someone sneezes three times they require, helth, beauty and intelligence!

    I hate when the red around the nose extends to half the face and you feel sore every time you sneeze or use a tissue. stupid summer colds! hope you feel better - or worse enough to call in sick and relax at home!

  8. Woozie: I certainly hope not!! It's called bejeweled blitz... one of those crazily addictive games on FB.

    vivek: Like I said above... bejeweled blitz. My sudden competitive streak dictates that I must move my position from #2 to #1!

    Orhan: I will... unless it's something more serious than I think it is.

  9. secret agent woman: Thank you... I kind of hope so too.

    Nick: This one doesn't suck so much... I only wish I could sleep, though. And thanks :)

    Aunty: I didn't know that!! I've only been using 'gesundheit!' all this while... to think of all the 'beauty and intelligence' I have missed... sigh. Not too late, though... the sneezing is still around.

    Yeah, the red and sore nose can be bad... I'm still quite well, though... not enough to call in sick yet. Thanks...
