I’m Not Crazy, I’m Just A Little Unwell…

Filed under: Personal — launchpad @ 8:07 am

Hi folks,

I think the post on autoresponders will take some time before it can be posted. I woke up in the wee hours of the morning with a bad sorethroat, and now it has become terrible.

I couldn’t get to sleep, so I decided to research a little on it.

entnet.org has a pretty good article on sore throats. Here are a few things you ought to take note:

  • Mononucleosis, or mono, is a viral infection of the throat that will take more than 1 week before you start feeling better
  • Mono is also the one responsible for tonsilitis

familydoctor.org may have some suggestions on how my sorethroat came about (a thought that was bugging me the whole night as I drifted in and out of sleep).

So… nope, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, no hay fever nor allergies. If it were polluted air, I assume everyone else in my family would be experiencing similar symptoms… that’s out too. I thought that it might have been the food I took last night. There might have been some bacteria? I recall chewing a piece of fish (those softer parts on the fish head) for a long time because there were scales attached to it. I wanted to make sure that all the scales were removed before I swallowed it, and it might have stayed in the mouth long enough for the virus or bacteria (which could have come from anywhere) to attack my throat lining. Bummer.

Argh, getting chills now. Going to get some green tea and rest under the sheets.
