yes, it's me.. all huddled up on our humid shores. feeling miserable and sick right now. Inflamed throat, scratchy eyes, feverish, achy joints and cold. Went to see my Dr earlier, he's 74! I looked at him with grand-daughterly love and listen to his jokes (he thinks I'm having F1 fever- and maybe an hr at the tracks at Marina Bay tonight will help perhaps?) :) and listened to his sister who is his clinic nurse about him retiring soon. I feel sad. I know he should take a break and do what he wants to do but I do know that he likes being here for his patients and aiding the old and failing residents at this estates. He has been my Dr since I was a baby, giving my my first jabs and treating my baby illnesses, so I will miss him if he retires.
for someone in the medical line, I hate visiting a Dr and will try to self medicate as much as possible before stepping foot into a clinic and paying horrendous amount for trade medications. I ever paid up to S$80 for some nasal spray and dunno-what-else at a 24hrs clinic in HV. Thank goodness it was a co-payment and the claimed medical amount was quite substantial. I'd like to think that my Dr is a kind man unlike other mercenary Drs that I have came in contact with who views medicine as a profit earning business. He has done so much for me... and he has touched my entire family and a few primary school friends who visits him when they are sick even though it's a distance from where they lived!
it just rained heavily and am now huddling in front of my lap top, I'm thankful that I went to see him earlier. I'm going to have some hot tea and a bun and hope to feel better soon.
