So this sore throat started off on Friday night. Immediately all warning bells went off. My cubicle neighbor had been sniffling and coughing all of Thursday and Friday. The last thing I wanted to get was a cold - being sick when there is no one around to pamper is not a very nice thing! So as soon as I felt my throat hurting a little, I immediately started all the precautionary measures - drank lots of hot water, hot soup, hot tea, hot turmeric milk - in short, the works. All of it seemed to have some effect - though my throat continued to burn mildly, it at least wasn't turning into anything full-fledged. Yipppeee.
Too early celebrations I guess. Sunday night a non-stop bout of coughing kept me awake for a couple of hours. Monday morning I went to work, quite sure of the sympathy of people around me when they saw my coughing self. Yeah right. As soon as I settled in my cubicle I heard at least five different people coughing. And then learnt that four other of my colleagues had taken the day off due to being sick with the flu. Hmph. There flew out of the window, all my plans of getting sympathy. On second thoughts, I was at least feeling a little less miserable - with so many people sick with the "bug", it was just a matter of time before I caught it too.
Anyways today, the cough has gone away a bit but new symptoms have appeared - runny nose, heavy head and general wooziness. And I am supposed to be at work. Sigh :-(!
I hate the flu-season!
p.s. Sorry to crib, crib, crib. Am just passing my general mood around ;-)!
