Sick days have always been my favorites. None of my supervisors, never dared to ask me how sick I am, because it was always stomach upset.
Last week, when I was genuinely sick, I realised, how terrible and gloomy it is to be sick. 2 weeks of no work, no going out, no taste in food is the worse ever!
My ENT recently confirmed that I have ‘Allergic Rhinitis’. I always self-diagnosed myself with this sickness. Half the people thought I am just being too skeptical about ‘sneezing’ and making a big deal out of it and the other half, loved me enough to agree that I might have sinus issues.
Last week, I was on bed rest with high fever, sneezing, cough, and in medical term – Upper Respiratory Tract Infection!
I was so happy, first that I fell sick. I never fall sick, it has always been the three days sneezing and that’s it!
After two whole days of having 103 fever, I realised, “This shit is real…” Finally, my doctor told me to take complete rest as he was sensing something worse!
Gladly, I wasn’t diagnosed with any flu, but the the flu like symptoms scared the shit out of me and my mom.
After some days of khichdi and rest, I went to work, to prove to my Assistant Manager that I am genuinely sick. Few more days of being sick and I was tired as hell, being at home.
I couldn’t taste the goodness of prawns that my mom made. I couldn’t smell the aromatic eucalyptus oil…! Life was a living hell and then I took the decision to visit a specialist.
My ENT specialist informed me that I am a case of Allergic Rhinitis. Does this make me feel good?
It makes me feel as if, I have an answer to my miseries as to why do I sneeze so much and fall sick.
Is there a remedy? Apart from he putting me on medication, he advised me to take steam twice, daily.
It will take time for me to get well soon, but I do have a lot of relief with my sneezing. Plus, my skin is hydrated!
Well, yeah! That’s what I have been doing when I was unwell and sick.
Should I blog daily and tell you guys what am I upto? Should I blog something that has content in it!? I am confused as hell…
Until then ciao!
