Thanks to inblue

I followed her suggestion to kill the boredom. I fell sick. But perhaps i followed to too well. I fell hyper sick.

I picked up a fever on Saturday evening, and been fighting with it since then. Loads of medicines and hours of sleep later, i am recuperating out of it. This is one phase of life i never liked. Even the period of sickness is better. My taste buds seem to be masked with a unity function of bitterness. Anything i try to eat - i taste only bitter. Add to it, i feel the smell of medicines all around. Shit - i hate it.

I know it will pass. But i am terribly frustrated and feeling pretty low now. I was supposed to meet a friend on Sunday, which got postponed to Wednesday coz i was sick. we cannot meet on Wednesday too coz i am still sick :( Haven't been to work for two days now, and the count is definitely not gonna stop at two. I haven't seen the outside world since Saturday evening, apart from the one frustrating hour i waited to meet the doctor. I have never been so sick in my life. This is the worst I've ever gone through. Sigh!!!

OK - that's a lot of unpleasant stuff. I am feeling much better now. The appetite is back, but the bitterness is still there. The fever is almost gone. I think i should be back to normal in a couple of days.

There is no update the applications. Even though I fell sick, i feel good for the fact that the GSB interview has been scheduled for a later time. Everything happens with a reason :)

Time to munch something and get back to bed. You guys take care and be good :)

i hope you feel better soon! Now that your apps are in, I think the adrenaline has worn out...give yourself a chance to rest & recuperate :)

Good that you are recovering now. I know how your eating goes for a toss after fever. I do hate those antiniotics.

Iday, it can get worse dude. You know, I once sprained my ankle when I was staying alone in Blore. And I used to stay on the 3rd floor , lol. I gulped down some painkillers and 'bout an hour later went out to stock food for the next 3 days. And I survived on biscuits, chips, colas, cakes till my ankle healed . lol.
I know how low poor health can get you .
And it feels like it's never gonna end. You should ask some friends to come over. That might feel good.
I remember missing Mom.

Hey, get well soon! And don't worry about Wharton. It looks like we are in the same boat, can compare progress with our schools :) I've got invitation from Chicago at the same day as you, and still wait for news from W, as you know from my blog.
