June 11 (Thu) … I went to the MegaClinic to have myself checked because I've had sleeping problems for the past week. I sleep in the bus going home from work. In some cases, I faint when taking in calls and/or when eating. The doctor advised me to take sleeping pills and doze off nowhere else but my bed. I took the second advise but I'm too afraid to try out any sort of sleeping pills because of what happened to some Hollywood actors and actresses.
June 19 (Fri) … I've been having a serious cold which hindered me from breathing properly. I have an interview coming up and I don't want this thing getting in the way. My mom suspected that I have the Swine Flu. She told Popay (my sibling, 9yrs) not to come near me since I am sick. I asked Leidi (my sibling, 17yrs) to get my temperature. I got 37°C flat – that's the normal body temperature of humans. I also told Dada (my boyfriend) about this. He and Tita Star (his mom) were hysterical and told me to see the doctor immediately.
June 20 (Sat) … I skipped work and headed to the MegaClinic again. Dada was there with me, like always. He carried my stuff and treated me both lunch and dinner. Anyway, the lady doctor diagnosed "Upper respiratory Tract Infection" … She gave me medicines that amounted to a whopping P2,000!!! I was hesitant to buy the meds because they're expensive but Dada scolded me and told me to follow the doctor's orders.
June 21 (Sun) … My head kept throbbing whenever I move; my body was aching; I couldn't breathe well using my nose; and, my temperature went up to 38.5°C!!! By now, my family's really frantic. Dada was also worried about my condition. "Ang tigas kasi ng ulo!" is what he always tells me when he's angry. I religiously took the prescribed medicines to make myself well. I also covered myself with a blanket and drank a lot of water.
June 22 (Mon) … It's supposed to be my interview with Capital IQ but I'm still sick. I called their HR to reschedule the interview next Monday. I'm so glad they agreed! My cold's gone and so was my fever. Although, my head still hurts when I make sudden moves. I stayed home and told everyone I'll be visiting the doctor again tomorrow.
June 23 (Tue) … I skipped work for the 4th time this month. I've talked to 3 different doctors and a couple of nurses. I've memorized every corner of the MegaClinic. Dada escorted me again and took care of me while we're waiting for my name to be called. The 3rd doctor sent me tot he lab for a blood test. He's also suspecting that I might be positive for A(H1N1). The results were normal, though. He said it might be because of the antibiotics I took so he still put me under observation for another 4 days. For now, he diagnosed me as having "Acute Bronchitis" …
July 7 (Tue) … My health is going for another haywire stage. I had LBM attacks last night and today, preventing me to go to work.
I seriously need to find a new job or my money will just be used for paying my medical bills!!!
