I hate this, not being able to do my normal routine, not being able to go out to jamuan makan-makan at my neighbour's (rugiiii...)and I hate especially being hungry and not being able to eat ( or drink) anything.
Yes people, I caught the stomach flu.
Today I couldn't get anything in without barfing it all back out. Ingatkan nak amik cuti je , but then I thought of my appointments. I know how I hate last minute changes and I wouldn't do that to my patients so ku gagahi jua. I felt nauseas the whole time, not because I was staring constantly into people's mouth. Funnily enough I can stand that ( you just get used to it) and I thought nasib baik I'm not a proctologist.
Anyway, everytime I thought about food- and that's constantly, I get bouts of stomach cramps that's able to buckle an elephant over. And let's not mention the queasiness.
So last-last, after barfing out my sad lunch ( 2 bottles of vitagen - petua bijak bistari sapentah), I decided to go to the doctor one floor below my office. He looked at me and asked whether I'd mind a saline drip. Yes I would , I said almost too quickly. You see, the irony of it is, although I give injections to my patients on almost a daily basis, I hate HATE being poked at. And to think that I'd probably have to stay there for another hour or so to finish the drip and risk being freezed to death ( the clinic I work in is so cold sometimes I anticipate snow), I gave the idea a pass. The doctor wasn't convinced. " Stick out your tongue" he commanded. I did and he told me it was moist enough ( which strangely sounds almost dirty).
He prescribed me some medications, and advised on some bed rest. Then it was all up to me to ask Big Boss untuk leave early.
" Hang sakit apa?" he said.
" Food poisoning la boss"
" Tu la, malas masak lagi. Sapa suruh hang makan luaq? Padan muka..Hahahah" ( dia gelakkan aku kaw-kaw punya..ciss)
Gelak punya gelak last2 dia bagi jugak balik awal. Not before I got some annoying comments from some other person.
" La..sakit camni memang tambah kuruihla. Dahla tak makan, asik lari je."
Alah, dengki. Sedap-sedap je kata orang tak makan. Apsal, ko pasang kamera ke kat rumah aku?
It's now nearing 10pm and I haven't eaten. I can't stand the aroma of fried egg in the house ( my kids' dinner courtesy of hub before he went to jamuan makan-makan taman). I almost hurl, but there's nothing to hurl.
I don't feel like eating but I'm hungry.
Lepas ni nak try test makan ais krim tengok. Ada jugak alasan makan ais krim malam-malam.
Gamaknya esok tak lari lagi.
Oh, ye. Gong Xi Fa Chai.
Eh, it rhymes!
