unplanned hazards

In an over exciting mood to pack up things and head back home, am down with temperature and throat pain. Even to take a sip of my fav tea is troubling me. Now, this is not done since I want to enjoy every min of my last days here and in this state no strength to get up and talk to ppl nor work....I might have to cancel my drink date with P & T this evening, which I was soo much looking forward to ..I have a list of things to do like Laundry, packing of new clothes, shoes, collect package sent by frens from the club house, chocolates etc...etc....this is the nth time am cursing my fate and asking myself - why MEEEE????

Hopefully this American medicine helps, looks so scary for me...am taking a chance by taking aspirin since I can't visit a doc here....why????
a) Even with med insurance, its very expensive.
b) I need to take a prior appointment, which I havent and its far from the place I live. I don't have a car.
c) I have an option to go into emergency appointment, but its double the expense. When I checked with urgent care she said its $130 and I was W-H-H-A-A-T-T-T?????? Rs 6600 for consulting a doctor for Fever???? No ways~~~~ a crocin will do!
I don't want to go home SICK :(

why is it, when I plan things so well, it does'nt work. It did'nt work with my previous employer and team, when I planned it well and had dreams about it....it came crashing down right under my nose leaving me hurt....okies, my fever is twisting my brains to think unrelated things now....zoooppppp am switching my mind off now....

I wish medical not to be a profession but a social responsibility run by charity and donations but it is a dream.
Get well soon.

Aww...How are you feeling now?

If the fever and throat pain is still there then

Take 2 Ibuprofen. Get good sleep. Have some hot soup.

If sinuses are affected then instead of Ibuprofen taken Sudafed.

Both meds are OTC.
