Working from home is nice and relaxing. The apartment is cool, bright and breezy. I leave the windows wide open and hear the leaves rustling outside all day long.
Except for the occasional dog barking in the distance, the estate is surprisingly quiet during the day. The environment is great for working actually. In between work, I water the plants, potter about and make myself a sandwich.
At some point, my head felt heavy and the throat was scratchy. This virus is indeed infectious. Even the flu vaccine cannot help me this time, so I went to the doctor before it gets too bad.
"Do you suffer from depression?", she asked, before prescribing Tamiflu. We've heard reports of people hallucinating or becoming suicidal after taking the medicine. While some doctors are strongly against this prescription, my doctor thinks otherwise. Even her 4 year old daughter had completed a course. "Kids are more resilient than you think.", she said.
SK is halfway through the course and hasn't developed any side effects. He's fine now though the cough hasn't gone away. I'm on the 3rd pill and it does mess up the mind a little. I didn't sleep well last night. My mind was too busy with vivid dreams. In my dream, I kept asking myself, "Am I hallucinating already?"
Other than that, I'm fine. The medicine must have stopped the flu from developing. I can return to work tomorrow though honestly, working from home is so nice.
