I’m back!!! Back from nowhere actually. Since my food-poisoning episode, my tummy has not been behaving well. A lot of gases man! I keep burping after heavy meals.
One fine day which was last Wednesday, while driving back from work I suddenly felt short of breath. There was something in my windpipe. Ohh I panicked. I was alone. I kept breathing hard. Stupid ideas start coming out from my funny mind… the ‘what if’. What if I pass out while driving? What if I die while driving? I drank lots of water for fear that I might stop breathing and to drown that ‘something’ in my windpipe. Wuahahahaha… of course I can laugh now.
I finally managed to crawl home and told my mom. Dad quickly fetched me to clinic. I went to my company’s panel but it was a long queue. “Gilar kar…. saya orang ke-11.” Ohh more panic. Maybe I can die anytime soon. Told dad to go to another clinic and registered my name for being a first-timer…took so long. Ahh where’s my ‘minyak kapak’. Weeeee I’m no. 2. Can breath more easily. Go back to car to take my bottle water. Gulp gulp gulp. Stupid ‘thing’ just won’t ‘tenggelam’.
And you know what the doctor said????
It’s just your imagination lah. There’s nothing wrong with your lungs.
Yeah but there’s something in my windpipe!!!
I drink lots of warm water, take cough/phlegm/antibiotic medicine on time and sleep without aircond (urgghhh… only plain fan) yet my phlegm won’t go away. Sure that ‘something’ or I called that my ‘kahak pepejal’ did subsided but sometimes it came back up my throat. Every morning and night, my chest feels heavy due to the phlegm.
So my friend, do you have any tips on how to clear up my very stubborn phlegm? I’ve tried honey, lime juice and ‘ubat batuk cap ibu and anak’ but still the phlegm emerged victorious.
