day 1958 – morning work days

back to work on early monday morning not feeling rest at all as i’m still fighting a nagging cold and cough. i can’t even buy sleep when i’m waking up at 2am and 4am everyday. it’s a never ending cycle of cough affecting my sleep pattern and the inability to sleep affecting the cold recovery. i keep finding reasons not go to into my family doctor’s office. it’s probably a waste of time since she doesn’t really solve my problems

day 1103 – know no japanese

my headache has improved as the days pass by, but all those hours of teaching and coaching caused a lot of havoc for my throat. my mom gave me some medication she bought in japan, ones that only provided instructions in japanese. it doesn’t help that i am japanese illiterate. little did i know how to take them; i just assumed they were to be ingested in some form which is exactly what i did

day 986 – my cup of tea

imagecame down with a nasty cough, headache and later found out i have a 39 degrees fever. got plentiful of rest throughout the day coupled with lots of honey lemon water and drugs. my personal nurse made a surprise visit and came in through my front door to meet my folks for the first time. glad he’s always watching out for me and bringing me more than just medications when i need it most

day 562 – going all out asian

going the asian route in attempt to cure this lingering cough that doesn’t seem to be going away even after four long weeks. it seems like i have tried every possible solution but had little success or progress to show for. the condition gets especially bad early mornings and late at night which works well if i need a body clock to tell me when it’s 10am and 10pm

day 541 – dry cough

woke up not being able to speak and only sounded more like human an hour upon waking up. been coughing my lungs out in the morning, good thing it got a bit better as the day went on or i’d end up with a really bad throat infection. i almost finished the whole bag of ricola and some strepsil in one day accompanied with some honey water and some sort of chinese cough candy

day 89 – feel like crap

when the bad comes, it seems to come all at once. on top of compensating for my ailing knee, i am now mute and sick, all occurred and fallen apart in consecutive days. drinking some nasty benylin, calling it a night and hoping things will feel a lot better when i open my eyes tomorrow morning
