Coming so soon…

I have not yet enjoyed fully my Christmas break, We ended 2015 with our duty on the 15th of last month, and supposed to be, today should be our first duty day for 2016. I was sent a text message (after numerous texts to our clinical coordinator) that there is no duty today; instead we are required to go to school at 1PM to greet the president of the school and join the first meeting for this year. I had to ask permission to the CC that I am indisposed- I went out at 3AM while there was drizzle and I did not cover my head; I have dysphagia (difficulty of swallowing) now and I cannot speak loud. I hope to be back to work tomorrow. What I do is I take a tablespoon of honey, gargle with Hexetidine (Bactidol) after meals, and suck a small piece of young ginger. Now, my voice is already hear-able. My going back on duty is coming so soon. I have not yet watched the new and latest DVD movies that my brother brought home. Besides, I have not put my attention into sharing you my experiences this Christmas season. How I wish, our vacation will end next week. How about you my friends? Have you enjoyed your Christmas break?

But isn't it wonderful that we have such kind of breaks from our works , that is a time to socialize and bond with siblings and family and friends . I have noted in my phone how you treated that near lost voice . So , that's how it should be .

@ridingbet Last nigh and until now my nose is stuffy . My husband awakened in the middle of the night and found me still awake because of that . He kidded me "I thought you are so healthy ?" That's because it has been since more than two years i haven't experienced colds and cough . So now , my problem is how to arrest this a bit of stuffy nose not to become a full blown colds .

@ridingbet I took Decolgen plus as texted by our daughter , because i was also having fever already . After taking it i was able to sleep well . Though , the next day i still call in sick at the office and rested for the whole day . So, yesterday , i went back to the office already .

thank you. My voice is now back to normalcy. I had this problem several weeks ago too, but I let the healing take its natural course. Now, I had to gargle with bactidol, because i have to be mindful that bacteria/virus may precipitate more the rheumatic heart disease that I am sick of.

@bluesa thanks for your concern, my friend. actually, having duty at the medical ward where all sorts of illness are present (we had duty with 4 students and I let them handle a whole ward-- total census of medical ward was 127), our immune system is sometimes compromised

yes, when a woman gets pregnant, she has the 'laziness of pregnancy' due to hormones and the weight of the growing fetus inside her. i think that is just fine to keep yourself rested; you would not want your baby get exhausted right?

@ridingbet I didn't know about the 'laziness of pregnancy', I just thought I was not feeling well, hence I didn't feel like doing anything. Sure, I'd like myself and my baby to get enough rest, hence I still take nap and sleep more at night now.
