Damn Those Germs

Yep, I'm down with the sniffles again. And to think that I used to brag about being as healthy as a horse, and not being able to fall sick. Which is true, actually, I only had major flus and such once a year, up to this year. This year's not too good for me, health-wise. My immune system's not as perked up as it used to be.


I daresay the air-con in my office is toxic. For the past month anyway. I've been sneezing non-stop, going through boxes and boxes of tissues (killing a lot of trees along the way), and my big nose has become even bigger from all the sneezing :(

Anyways, I'm now heavily doped up with meds (it's fantastic what paracetamol, codeine and antihistamine meds can do to your system). Hopefully I'll be fine by this week, as I'll be leaving for Melbourne next weekend. I'm going to have to stay away from the PC for a bit, so apologies for the sporadic posts, ya? Gotta get myself healthy again and fast.

*sniff sniff*

Get well soon, Tine.

Could it be that you are trying to lose weight.. hence, your body's immunity has weaken cos of that?

Anyway, I so envy you. Wish I can return to Melbourne soon.

Take care, dear.

We get sick once in a while and this is very normal.

We're all only human. :)

Have a good rest, Tine. Get well soon.

Tine said...

Jemima: Nah ... the losing weight bit doesn't seem to be doing much, I've pretty much lost hope!

Will send you some pictures of the place, if you're up for it ;)

Jase: Indeed, and how we humans fail from time to time eh. If only physically :)

Pablo: Thanks Pablo :)

Like you, my nose has been hijacked by flu mercenaries and my temperature has gone bananas. Well, there's always Melbourne to look forward too.... :-)

Feel better and get plenty of rest. Your body just needs time to fight the virus.

Tine said...

Paris: Hehehe ... so how? Anything you want from Down Under? :P

Gallivanter: Oh how true you are :) Anyways, so far my temp hasn't gone nuts on me yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Truebluepenangite: Thanks my dear :)
