Well, the man in my life’s been sick for about two days now. Last night, he slept really early, around 9ish (that’s early for him, as he usually sleeps between 12MN and 2AM). He told me that the weather was bad the day before. He’s Singaporean– he’s used to drizzly weather. My guess is that when he says that the weather’s bad, it’s really bad.

Poor honey was sick all day today. Lucky I was on Globe Powersurf these past few days, that’s how I got to Whatsapp with him. Poor guy couldn’t even finish his food. I, meanwhile, was suffering from alveolar bone ouchy from a braces adjustment. The only difference was that I could eat, if eating meant just swallowing everything.

Sometimes he thinks that effervescent vitamin C’s solve everything, but today, I pretty much dragged him to the doctor with ny superb word-typing skills. I had to bargain with him, because it was really obvious how he didn’t want to go. He was even like, “What am I supposed to tell the doctor?“. I being a self-proclaimed HPI darling, fed him a big-ass paragraph with one or two medical terms sprinkled on it. It would have been more comprehensive had I been more versed on SOAP notes, but oh wells.

Hummy came over with a prescription of Lomotil, Lacteol (from what I understood, it’s Lactobacillus, possibly a probiotic drink or something), Buscopan, and Anarex (Paracetamol + Orphenadrine Citrate). Cost him SGD30. I was initially only familiar with Lomotil and Buscopan. Had I not asked the generic names, I wouldn’t have known what Lacteol and Anarex are. It’s probably best if I famillarize myself with international name brands.

Well, right now, he’s getting better. He makes it a point to ask me first before he can eat something. He’s been having tummy problems too, along with being febrile, so he’s a bit more conscious about what he’s eating now. I let him have bread with kaya, and encouraged him to have some kiwi. I’m just glad he’s regaining appetite now.:)

Norman and I have happy times together, but when we stand by each other during the tough times, it make our relationship a bit more meaningful. Mind you, we’ve called it quits about 4 weeks ago, but we’re still around for each other– AS FRIENDS. #4better4worse friends.
