I'm a lamp

Lack of updates have been caused by an unforseen event aka I have been sick as a dog. I've had flus and colds. I've cut my fingers and needed stitches. I've had killer cramps, and hippopotamus migraines. But the past 5 days... I seriously thought that I was not going to make it out of the desert.

On Friday I was so sick that I lost my voice and was dizzy to the point I thought I might faint. I went to work for 30 minutes and was sent to go to a walk-in clinic. Three other girls had been sick with bronchitis before me, so they insist I see a doctor in case I was coming down with that, so that said doctor could give me something to help clear it out. I waited 20 minutes to be told "You've got what pretty much everyone in this city has, listen to your body, go sleep and drink clear liquides like there is no tomorrow". Oh great, thanks. Why did I come here again?

I slept all day Friday, up til about noon on Saturday, and up til noon again on Sunday. I had everything, stuffy/runny nose, sore throat, headaches, muscleaches, dry cough, mucus in throat, etc. You name it, I had it.

Alas I have survived (I'm a survivor ringtone, anyone?) and today is the first day I somewhat feel normal.

To stay sane I watched movies and read blogs online. One that entertained me to no end is Sarah's "The nomad's land" tumblr blog. You guys should check it out. She's from South Africa, but has been living in Japan for four years now. She's hilarious~

In other news I've been thinking of working on a new layout for Gossip Candy, and also I've gotten quite a few things for my very first giveaway. So stay tuned!
Have you been sick this season?
Was it worse than any other bug before?
How did you manage to stay sane?

Aww :( I hope that you get real better soon! Completely sucks to be sick ;____;

I've been slightly sick lately but not really really. I think it's just that time of month coming down :\ Yeah? And eeee. Just sleep love! Our body heals itself when we're sleeping for some unknown reason ! hehe.

And sane? I just slept and cried and whined to my boyfriend and mum and brother :3

Aww get well soon! pretty much everyone in my office has been sick, I've trying to keep it away by sterilizing everything and drinking/taking vitamin c supplements! Vicks Vaporub is really good for when you're sick works everytime for me ;)

Pour une fois, je n'ai pas été malade! C'est vraiment un record sérieux. Et pour les migraines, j'te comprends j'en ai quasiment à toutes les semaines (et ça fait comme si l'on me tirait les cheveux T_T)

Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net) may be another choice. i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat.
