(via everystockphoto)I took a day off today because I’m sick and have been running a fever since this morning that wouldn’t go away. I’m getting chills and body aches. Paracetamol hasn’t worked in reducing the fever.
I’ve been drinking lotsa water and fluids including fruit juices and Gatorade. I’ve dunked my feet into a bucket of cold water, and throughout the day I’ve slept with a wet towel around my neck and on my forehead.
Is there anything else, any other home remedies that you can think of? Let me know. Otherwise, I’m hoping that the fever will run its course by tomorrow. If not, it’s another sick day. Can’t help it – I’m not going into the office where the air-conditioning will make me feel worse.
Oh, you know how they say grown men become the biggest sook when they get sick? Well, it’s true. I really admire how my mother can still cook and clean when she’s sick. Me, I can’t even type this without feeling sorry for myself (like it’s such hard work!!!).
Alrighty, see youse tomorrow. I need to crawl into bed now.
