That Nasal Pain Again

This morning Pak Abu and I went to Damansara Specialist Centre because I was unable to reach my regular ENT specialist by phone.

I had to see him at whatever cost; something feels so wrong with my health. I have been sneezing, wheezing and coughing unabated, despite medication, for over a month now.

Unfortunately he was in surgery, but we managed to make an appointment for tomorrow. So I will be there again tomorrow morning and I hope to put to rest whatever it is that's plaguing me.

It started as a simple cold and cough soon after my mum's death at the end of May, but by June's end they were still there.

And lately the coughing is worse than ever, bringing up horrible-looking pleghm speckled with blood. What's making it more worrying is that my face is in constant pain, especially the nasal area.

I don't know what to make of this. My sense of smell has been gone for over a month. I smell nothing, not even durian and the strongest of perfumes. Thankfully, I can still taste my food.

Anyway, on the bright side, the cafeteria at Damansara Specialist Centre serves good food at some of the cheapest prices we have ever come cross in a very long time.

We had mixed rice with no less than 4 types of lauk apiece, with a bowl of ikan patin masak asam, and nescafe tarik each, all for RM11. I may not be able to smell a thing, but I know a good bargain when I see one!
