Down with the Sickness

This isn’t good. I have a bad sore throat with thick mucous stuck somewhere, most probably the larynx, or is it the pharynx. But its irritating where ever it is. And my inner ears, either the cochlea or the incus hurts like hell. Falling sick seems inevitable.

All the nicotines I puffed today tastes like shit. The roti canai I had for dinner was tasteless.

I’m going to switch my brain off for now and hope to get it turned on in time for Merdeka eve celebration.

Salam bro kerp:

You better see your doc tomorrow.
You might need some antibiotics. It might be viral but I'm worried if theres a secondary bacterial infection too.

Drink lots of water and cut down the candu sikit bro. Boleh kan?

Take care.

Cbenc12,

Hey there. it sucks to be down with flu isnt it. I wish I cld sleep through out and wake up only when its completely gone. I went to your LRC and nice blog you got there. keep it up. And thanks for dropping by.

Doc,

The best person to hear from as far as this entry is concerned.

Alhamdulillah doc, takde secondary bacterial infection. Initially I thought it was urinary tract infection as I wld normally get. Apparently demam biasa je. I’m on antibiotics now and frm what the doctor said, the bug’s in the air.

And I’ve been cutting down on candu drastically. It didn’t taste the same, especially when the medication takes its effect.

Thanks for the free consultation, doc!

Ibu,

No wonder havent seen you in a while. You were away.

And thanks for the motherly advice. Dah 3 glasses since I woke up this morning and more to come. Oh, and no, I don’t drink those stuff la Ibu. thanks.

Akak mystery,

Errm. cutting down can still be considered. But quitting is not something I can even foresee, not in the near future atleast…hihi…

Yo Nadia,

Thanks sis. I havent been smoking a lot lately I swear. I may be giving serious considearion about cutting down on it. it’s a tough task but I’m game for it.


Thanks, guys!

Pi Bani said...

Uhh, I can imagine the irritation. Kalau dah sore throat macam mana nak jerit MERDEKA kan? Have a good rest and get well soon!

Anonymous said...

For once bro, I'm not going to say anything much...I'm pretty susceptible to flu - got to keep the distance!

Hehe...just kidding bro.You take care now. Stuff your nose and rub your chest with plenty of vicks. It helps with me, insyAllah with you too. - Amir

Mior Azhar said...

Bro,
dah jumpa doktor? Get well soon, my young friend...

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Kak Pi,

I’m feeling so miserable larr…I wish I cld sleep all day long all night through. Kalau tak sempat before merdeka, I’ll let my heart do the screaming. Afterall, that’s where it shld come from that matters. Thanks akak!

Amir,

I’ve applied everything. Vicks and the yu yee ointment. The smell is too strong I find it a problem to fall asleep, when that’s what I preferably do now. dont we all wish there’s actually an ointment where u only rub once and the whole flu and running nose will stop immediately.

Bg Mior,

Tak jumpa doctor. I only described my sickness through the phone to our family doctor. And maybe can ask second opinion from doc tokasid.

Thanks bg Mior. Maybe we shld meet up lar sometime since we live quite nearby. Separated only by federal highway je. Haha…nasik lemak courtesy of kak Yan still on kan?

botak said...

get well soon, kerp

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

thank you so much bg Botak. i have to, Merdeka is just a couple of days away.

Raden Galoh said...

Salam Kerp...Take it easy my brother...when a body is in pain, it tells us that it wants to rest so give the body enuf rest ya...

Cuba minum air asam jawa, campur gula batu buat suam2...baca selawat 3x selepas bismillah before minum...insya'allah, blh lega perit tu...jumpa doc juga tau utk check apa masalahnya...

Hmmm...blh 'stop' smoking sekejap tak bro?...alahai...sekejap je if for good pun alhamdulillah...

Take care okay? Y'hear me?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Kak Dalilah,

Yes, I hear ya, sis. I’m taking a good rest to prepare for the big day. Not tht I’ll be taking part in the parade or anything like that. Just to stay up late through out the merdeka night.

Thanks for the petua. Masam and manis all mixed up. Sounds interesting. My doc advises me to finish up the antibiotics and once the course is complete, I’ll try it. and I am cutting down on my cigarette intake. To quit, well, err…susah sikit la..hihi..alon-alon..

Thanks akak.

Eh, jap. Gula batu tu apa ha?

Anonymous said...

Mat,

Lu mesti cari gula batu macam itu sis pesan, itu gula rupa macam batu la brother.Lu jangan cari batu, lagi lambat lu punya sore throat elok nanti. Kalau lu cari batu, lu jadi macam gua -ROCK..

Gua dah insaf, gua tarak hisap itu rokok lagi.

Take care brother!!!Gua mau nasihat, lu berhentilah merokok..demi negara yang nak merdeka 50 tahun ni, apasal gua tangkap sayu pulak ni....

zabs said...

Salam kenal kerp,
I came from Tokasid blog. Since, you're not felling, I just thought that I should come and have a look.
Dah sihat sikit nampaknya. Esok lusa bolehlah sambut Merdeka tu.
Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Anon,

Aiseh, mekasih brader atas nasihat lu. Gua nak quit tu agak susah sikit la. Kasi kurang boleh lar. Demi negara kita yg tercinta, gua akan kasi potong sikit intake rokok gua dlm 1 hari.

Terima sbb ke mari geng.

Pak Zabs,

Salam berkenalan sama. Saya lama dah kenal pak zabs. Cuma segan je nak tegur. Hihi…

So far, its improving, the sore throat is not much of a bother. insyaAllah bolehlah pegi merayau dekat2, sbb nak pegi KL paham2 je lah, jam.

Thanks for dropping by pak. Will definitely cross over to your blog later.

Salam merdeka!

Raden Galoh said...

salam Kerp...Gula batu tu yg putih ketul2 besar selalunya dlm lin chi kang ada...alah if you go to any shop tanya ada jual rock sugar tak...gunalah seketul je...takyah byk2...

Enjoy your staying up late...

Kerp (Ph.D) said...
