Water Therapy

I never liked getting a cold. It’s such a nuisance, an in-between sickness. You’re not sick enough to be bedridden—so you can still report for work—but you don’t feeling well either. Ugh. I’d rather be down for the count.

I’ve been nursing a bad cold since Sunday, the kind that refuses to bubble to the surface but insists on lurking somewhere down my throat. It’s really irritating—my throat is itchy and I could feel phlegm clinging and making me cough every so often.

What I usually do is not pop a cold pill—they only relieve the symptoms but they don’t cure the disease—but drink lots of water instead. I could finish two 1500ml bottled water in a day. Drown that fucker, I say! I don’t really know if it is effective—I just imagine my phlegm becoming more watery, thus less irritating. What I’m sure of is that I go to the bathroom a lot. Getting a cold really pisses me off, literally.

Bit will tell you all that water works. I hope it's not the same bug I got though - that one's two weeks running and it's still not done with me. :-(

Get well quick!

OA na nga sa tubig eh, nag-wa-water-water na nga ako! I think I'm recovering na, I'm already back at work and I'm not coughing as much. I noticed I often bounce back fast.
