What do you do when you fall sick? Obviously you go see the doctor! But growing up I think it's a common sight - sick people don't go to see the doctor, they only see the doctors when they are not getting better after few days.

I rarely get sick. Since I was a small, and for that I thank God. Well, at least that's what I remember - I don't fall sick that often. And usually on the same day I would get better. I'm not a fan of panadol too. Some people I know they like to pop that thing in their body system whenever they get headache, fever. What I usually do, I drink a lot of water, wear myself thick jackets to get my body sweating and that's it, God willing I feel better the next time I wake up from my rest.

But this time around, it's Ramadhan so drinking a lot of water can't really be done in the day. I did however drink a lot during Sahur to compensate the zero water intake in the day. I don't know perhaps I should take a break from tonite's terawih. Wouldn't want other people to get sick as well. But come to think of it, it didn't sound like I was the only who is with runny nose last night in the masjid. I guess I shouldn't really go to masjid tonight.

Even though I don't feel good, still can surf the net. Came across this -

The Flu: Caring for Someone Sick at Home

Learn what you can do to help your family this flu season.

5 steps to take if you get the flu

  1. Stay at home and rest.
  2. Avoid close contact with well people in your house so you won’t make them sick.
  3. Drink plenty of water and other clear liquids to prevent fluid loss (dehydration).
  4. Treat fever and cough with medicines you can buy at the store.
  5. If you get very sick or are pregnant or have a medical condition that puts you at higher risk of flu complications (like asthma…), call your doctor. You might need antiviral medicine to treat flu.

I like the idea of making a sick room in the house. Reminds me very much of my high school's sick bay. Where most of the time students used the sakit kepala or sakit perut excuses to skip some classes. =P

So, what now? I guess I'm some vacuuming..
