It all started from eating Kebab...
In thursday I ate Kebab roll. It was good. On that same night, just before getting into bed, I started puking like a mad man. Friday, I was outright sick.

Then I came back to home from Uni, and my dad was sick from the flue. Next thing I know, oh yeah I have it too. The SUPERFLUE! It really started bothering me on sunday. Now I have fever, my head is jammed and it hurts, my lounges are about to explode, and my muscles hurt like a mofo and I can't sleep. When I do sleep, I'm in a coma state and wake up in bed wet from sweat. Dreams are weird and extremely disturbing. General nausea, also feel light in the head at times.

Nose hurts from blowing it all the time. Eyes hurt a little too.

Can you guess what happened just few minutes ago? Oh yes. Diarrhea too. OH GOD WHY ME?!

I'm thinking it's the transformation from normal person to SUPERCITIZEN that is making my body function like this. It's not used to it, all the power..

Anyway, what can I do to make myself feel better? I have coca cola and cigarettes, and I try not to touch them as they don't exactly help obviously. The closest ER room that is open is surprise surprise over 30 minute drive away. And they'll just give me antibiots from 1979 and say 'go sleep'. I feel like crap.

LIke I said, no doctors here. Even in the ER room, it's just nurses. They give me antibiotics at best, but likely say 'just go sleeping boy'. That's the best free healthcare gives you. The mainpoint, I'm not up to driving, seriously. I can get into car crash right now.

Go get another Kebab.

Coke can help an upset stomach though...

In here? Give me a brake

Like I said in my heart problems thread months ago when my heart started doing drum and bass and I felt really really bad for a while and called them up 'well when did it happen?' 'umm.. 20 minutes ago' 'well it wasn't a heart attack, you'd know it' 'Should I come there?' 'Nah.. you shouldn't drive, if you have it again and feel pain, call again'.

Won't work on me.. My father had this same thing and just got well.. and now I got it. Also it's the flue time here now. I just can't take it being sick very good, I'm rarely sick, almost never. I can go few years and more and not even get a single flue. But when I get it, I'm all messed up even with little fever.. Usually everyone gets sick and coughs and gets everyone else sick but I'm always healthy. But this time it's different... I might have gotten foodpoisoning from the Kebab, then the flue coming home, and then diarrhea. I guess these things comes in 3's...

Flu = short for influenza, a virulent illness.

Flue = A pipe, tube, or channel for conveying hot air, gas, steam, or smoke, as from a furnace or fireplace to a chimney.

Thanks, yeah, flu . I'm feeling a little better already. Not very much, but enough so I can hold on. Also stomach stopped burning and twisting. Maybe that diarrhea was just one time deal? But you never know with diarrhea, it comes and goes... fast like a thunder.

Ahhh, a good kebab Inducted into the Univ tradition that an Achmed's kebab, with chilli sauce, will return a place at that hallowed seat of learning

At least, that's what I'm hoping

Drogue, Want to hear what the funny part of this is? I did so well in mathematics exam totally beating the odds that I decided on the way home 'I'll celebrate this and go get kebab!'.. you see I can't afford even for take out, but I decided this will be a special thing. Totally feeling good about myself.

Now, I have already missed two exams because of this and will miss the one tomorrow. I'll be in deep doodoo because of this and have do these later next year, so.. ironic, huh?

I blame TUrkey! And communists.. this has got to be a commie plot.. want to take down the supercitizen.. I'll diarrhea poo on their red books!

Be sure to drink two dark, bitter beers a day. It might not make you healthier but you'll feel substantially better.

The Spanish flu of 1918 is estimated to have killed between 20 million and 40 million.

The worst affected age group was 20 to 40 year olds.

The strange thing about the 1918 flu was that the old were left alive while the young adults died. I believe the reason older people weren't effected by the Spanish Flu of 1918 is that the bacteria was closely related to a flu that occured in the 1870's. The people who weren't alive in the 1870's didn't have immunity to the bacteria like the people who had already been previously infected had.

Of course you can. But if I have to come and save you, it doesn't mean I'm getting a loss to the record. Only after I get beaten down personally.

Boris, strangely enough, yes. Fever is gone, no sign of diarrhea (but I wont' eat anything heavy, I think it still might come) but flu is still bothering. But it's not so bad anymore. I have to stay indoors and take it easy, but it's not horrible anymore .

Maybe you need to make your dolls a bit more convincing?

As for your poisoned kebab Pekka, I regret that it's just another lesson in life. Now you know you are literally taking your life in your hands by eating out.

One good thing about alcohol for celebration - it is sterile.
