Just got back from sickbay. I had a terrible four-day struggle with a persistent flu (am still feeling groggy as of this writing, but fine, I guess).
Cause? Physical and Emotional stress (that’s the Dr. House in me speaking).
Now, the cost:
Self-prescribed - P 500.00
Doctor prescribed – P 1,650.00
(aircon, DVD, etc. P 600.00 ++
Fruits & other food P 1,000.00 ++
My gulay! That’s almost four thousand pesos down the drain!
Imagine. That money could have purchased cases of beer and plates of hearty pulutan in our sidewalk tambayan. Or it could have shouldered the weekend trip to Subic or Mindoro. Or a good massage and sumptuous dinner from a cozy spa. Damn! Damn!
