A Cute Bronchitis

Only it wasn't cute. It was torture. 2 weeks of feeling sick. It all started with a cold fever, then a very bad cough and faint spells. After numerous blood tests and a couple of days in the hospital, the doctor diagnosed me with acute bronchitis plus viral fever.

I started feeling sick the day we all came back from Kuantan. I took two actifast pills and normally that would do the trick. But it didn't and I started having the chills. Like it felt like ice water was running through my veins. I went to the clinic and the doctor gave me some antibiotics and pills for my flu. The next day, I started getting diarrhea and headaches. My fever was still there so En Rashid took me to the hospital near our home. The doctor did a few blood tests and gave me two days of MC. Whatever I had, it was different from what the kids had had, so I waned to know the cause of it. I missed classes because I really couldn't even sit up due to my pounding headache and really bad cough.

On Monday I wen back for another blood test. My fever had gone but I was still feeling sickly and lightheaded. The doctor cleared me for denggi, which was a relief.

On Tuesday, I went to work. I had a 930am meeting which I went straight to. It was at that meeting that I started to feel lightheaded and out of breath. It scared me a bit coz it was kind of sudden. Fortunately the meeting ended quickly and I called up En Rashid to take me home. He took me to the hospital instead which was a good call coz the doctor confirmed that my blood pressure was too low and apparently the viral fever was still there. They gave me a drip and after reviewing my blood tests, the doctor decided to admit me for observation.

So I stayed in the hospital for 2 nights. The food was good though, apparently there was no problem with my appetite. I did still feel kind if weak; simple tasks like going to the toilet made me out of breath. I took this up with the doctor and that's when he diagnosed me with acute bronchitis. I dunno if it can lead up to light headiness coz that's what concerns me the most.

Anyway, that kind of explains the reason I've been quiet for the past 2 weeks. I'm feeling better now and I have an inhaler in case I have difficulty breathing or anything. The doctor said it may take up to 8 weeks for the viral fever to really go away and for my bronchitis to clear up so I'm to avoid strenuous activities. Hmmm, I hardly think that's possible once I get back to the office. But I'll have to try. I only have one body to take care off anyway.

Plus being sick just blows.
