Look What I Got....

Its commonly known as cold sores or fever blisters. Its been with me since I was in Med school, becomes latent for sometime then reappears again whenever I'm stressed. That's how this illness is, now you see it now you don't! It is caused by a virus known as herpes simplex and resolves by itself without any medication. Taking antivirals before the blisters appear helps hasten the condition.

What then caused this thing to reappear in my face after so many years of latency? In my case I'm thinking maybe it's the brownout (yeah, until now, on its 3rd week!). Its giving me STRESS full intensity.

Because of the rising price of diesel we decided to run the generator mostly at night so all of us can sleep well. So imagine the heat we have to brave during daytime especially if we are inside the clinic and treating some patients. Its good once in a while there is a cool breeze coming in from the window on certain afternoons.

    Yes, Dine. It's really difficult for the kids. Actually electricity had been restored in most downtown areas of every town and in some ouskirts. We're not just lucky though. I don't know what is keeping them from running the electricity in our area when all toppled post had already been replaced. DECORP just keep on telling us to wait. But until when?
