"I am just not in a generally good frame of health now..."
I don’t really fall sick very often but when it happens it can be scary.
I started having high fever while we were travelling down south. It got worse when everyone was complaining of warm humid night, I was shivering and rattling bones under the thick blanket. Agonising pain numbed my senses. It was not only the fever that made me go nuts, the throat was inflamed raw and made it hard even to swallow my own saliva. The high fever prolonged for several days. When my blood sample was taken for further test, I was expecting the worst. For a moment there, I thought I had H1N1 or dengue fever But when the result came and the doctor declared that I only have normal flu and bad tonsillitis, I was overly relieved.
The bad throat is still swelling, I guess it just may take me a while to taste good food again…
