Sickboy : think so....
Doctor : then, what r u doing here? go back home and rest...
Sickboy : a bit later, maybe after I finish with the ECG.
Doctor : High temperature?
Sickboy : 37.5 degree.
Doctor : Cough? The phlegm - what colour? Flu?
Sickboy: Pretty bad.. cough, a bit yellowish... too much mucous production rite now.
Doctor : How do u treat urselves?
Sickboy : bla bla bla bla bla ( the list goes on)
Doctor : Go back home and rest. Dont come back until u r cured. Dont worry about the class, I'll give the zacut ( credit hours) to you unconditionally. No worry. Go back home and rest. Treat urselves before u get pneumonia.
Sickboy: Thank you!
This is what a med student has to do if we are sick. A simple mc paper from the doctor doesnt work. The doctors that teach u, are the only ppl who can give u permission to skip class. But, it wasnt my intention to skip class. I want to go to class. I love the doctors. But, I can stay in the class - I'll only infect other students. Must think about others too. Flu and fever , very easy to pass to others. One cough, one sneeze is more than enuf.
On the way back home, I stopped at the pharmacy and bought some new medicine. Amoxycillin and mucolytic for the cought, panadol for the fever, coldact for the flu and antivirus - citovir-. I took all the medicine the world has to offer. Really hope to get well soon. I wanna be jumping around, kicking ass again. I miss be a happy person!. Now that I'm sick, I've become a bit cranky most of the time. I cant talk much coz there are phlegm in my airways. Really annoying. Owh, in case u realize, I've bought the bloody inhaler. Yup, whenever i have bad flu, my asthma will drop by. FYI, I've stop using the inhaler for years!!! But last nite, I had an attack, that leave me no choice.... say Hi to Mr Inhaler - welcome back to my life... u suck dude.. big time.
My best companion rite now.. miss tissues. They are all over the place. The Flu is killing me. I think I could produce more than 1 liter of mucous rite now. Huh... At the pharmacy last nite... when I wanted to buy the inhaler
sickboy : Hi, I need the inhaler for asthma
pharmasist : which one?
sickboy : give me the salbutamol , ventolin.
pharmasist : occay... do u have the doc prescription?
sickboy : no need, I'm a doc myself! ( pls dont ask for my ID!)
pharmasist : owh... there u go. 150 rubbles. Pay at the counter.
sickboy : thank you
In moscow, some pharmacy has a very strict policy , and some dont. So, it depend on ur lucky day. Technically, u need doc presciption to buy the inhaler. But last nite, it was an emergency case, so I had to do what I needed to do. Tomorrow gonna be a day off for me. I really need to rest, a lot. In the end of the day, I believe , that the illness I have now is a test from God. Maybe to redeem a bit of my sins. Nevertheless.. God, pls make me healthy again!
