Wednesday I sat on the first passenger seat in the bus while my colluege showed me a new route. A passenger came onboard and sat behind me. She started coughing and sniveling and I thought to myself I hope I do not get sick now. I do not want to get sick and also I got a new job! I got worried.
Thursday came, I got a cold. I was at work learning a new route. My throat was very sore and it felt like I had burning liquid with the sandwich and not coffee. So I got that cold I did not want. It was painful to swallow, painful to eat and painful to talk. Later in the day I started to lose my voice, I sounded like a teenager boy with one time high notes and sometimes low notes. Slowly my voice got hard and dark, and I understood I could not work like this. And I who was so happy to go working! Por me.
Friday I went to the doctors and he concluded with virus infection. My throat was burning, I coughed and had to clean my nose and throat all the time. I could barely talk with the doctor, I had to make an effort to manage to talk.
I got a very strong cough medicine called Cosylan. It got a warning triangle on it, so I am not allowed to drive a car taking it. Since I have asthma he also told me to double my asthma medication just to make sure I do not get trouble from my asthma too. Better follow the doctors orders. I do not want asthma trouble on top of this.
Today I have no voice left, I’m about totally mute. Only a slight whisper come out when I try to talk, I can barely hear my self speak.
I only hope for a quick recovery so I can go back to work as fast ast possible. I love my new job. :)
