down with chicken pox

i am so bored. i've finished watching Reply 1997 (janine will be so proud of me LOL), rewatched Kaichou wa Maid Sama (usui takumi never fails to get me flipped every frakking time), and is currently on the 9th episode of My Flower Boy Neighbor (i was curious, it was hilarious at first but... we'll see).

all i ever did since the doctor sentenced me on a 2-week lock-up was watch TV and browse my socials via phone. it's my first time to catch chicken pox by the way and it's by far the worst illness i've experienced ever. the first week is where things start to become super ugly. i was on a 5 day fever fest and every day i'm up with an increasing number of skin eruptions all over including my scalp and my mouth aaaaargggh. i couldn't eat properly cos i've also developed really crappy throat sores. haha on the good side i thought it would be a good jumpstart to my ever delayed diet program... but, err,, blah.

since august 6 i was already feeling feverish and a lot of sores have formed on my mouth and gums already. i thought it was because i kept on biting my lips in my sleep but on thurs (aug 8) i noticed a lot of rashes on my front and back already so i decided to take the day off to get a checkup. i rushed to FEU Hospital ER and got myself checked. when i was about to settle my discharge i was called at the HMO desk and was told that Smart employees weren't covered with Asian Life. i got really angry. how is it that my parents are covered but the employee is not?

after a lot of phone calls (and tears too), i learned that we're not really covered with Asian Life, but PLDT instead. and the hospital i went to isn't PLDT accredited so i have to settle the ER fee worth 700 huhu that's a lot. i never had to pay ER fees before. grrr...

anyway, i also learned that i could get free medicine if i had myself checked up at an accredited hospital so we went to Capitol Medical Center to get another check up. the prescription didn't change, 5k++ worth of medicines for this darned virus. shempre i had to really fight this over with PLDT clinic because their freaking policy says that you can only get free meds in their clinic, and the nearest is at makati pa. i was advised to just buy 3 days worth of meds since the clinic is closed on holidays and weekends. i can get the remaining meds on monday raw. but what the hell hassle, i told the guy on the phone that i'm just buying a week's worth of meds and have it refunded, after all i'm under isolation. you can't expect me to travel all the way to makati just to fetch meds. haynako. to hell with that policy. i'm just so bent on having it refunded haha.

right now i'm out of the fever fest and my wounds are starting to dry up. it sucks cos i can't work at home. i wasn't able to get my laptop last friday since i have fever and i can't access it remotely as well because there's no LAN cable. add to the fact that internet access in my room is pretty unreliable because well, either there's no laptop or the wifi is weak.

hay. i can't wait to get out! >XS

PS: arg i forgot to pass my DTR. wala akong ssweldohin sa susunod huhu
