Foul air

Last week, I caught malaria. Damn you, Anopheles gambiae

I delayed going to a doctor by a couple of days and that led to the fever being so severe, I didn’t eat much and was dehydrated by Saturday.

I was then rushed to hospital by friends (who wanted to smack me for being so stupid) and was put on a glucose iv drip.

I was also administered an anti-malarial through iv for 3 days.

Well, I’m out now, and back to work. My appetite is back to normal too. I now have to take a pill everyday for two weeks as part of what’s called a “radical cure.”
