Cough, colds and other related contagious health problems can be considered as air-borne diseases. Have you not wondered why you easily get infected with this viral disease even if you are not within a crowded area? A simple sneeze from an infected individual will pose great risk on his surroundings. Given with this kind of situation, one must be cautious enough by taking vitamins with higher ascorbic acid contents.

I just got my Medical Certificate of my confine last February 12 -17,2012 at Capitol University Medical City . My sickness was due to Dengue hemorrhagic Fever. I thought it was a plain and ordinary dengue fever but it was a hemorrhagic one.
Dengue hemorrhagic fever is caused by a virus for which there is no known cure or vaccine, the only treatment is to treat the symptoms by the ff :
1. A transfusion of fresh blood or platelets can correct bleeding problems
2. Intravenous (IV) fluids and electrolytes are also used to correct electrolyte imbalances
3. Oxygen therapy may be needed to treat abnormally low blood oxygen
4. Rehydration with intravenous (IV) fluids is often necessary to treat dehydration
5. Supportive care in an intensive care unit/environment
I was nearly sent to ICU because my platelet count drop to 36k but because all my vital signs are okey, I was just put to rest at the hospital bed with with intravenous fluids and took a lot of water and juices. There is one thing that helped a lot with my recovery… the Chinese medicine that my mother-in-law took me. I’ll make another post about it later.

What can I do? Got lots of online works to do and deadlines to meet. My mind’s in limbo what to do first.What made it worst is that I was able to take a medicine that is drowsy rather than the non-drowse! Oh my… zzzzzzzzhhhh…
