Me Paranoid?

This morning I attended a course (not inter), briefing on official "leave" and "allowances." About 200 staff from all over Perak came for this course and it was quite crowded in the hall.

During registration, I saw one lady donning a mask and entering the hall, I was taken aback, "hey, is she sick or is she being cautious?", I asked one of my colleagues. Then I was told that one of the participants was having a flu and this lady happened to know about it and thus the mask. "Alamak, how about us??"

After knowing and hearing about that, I felt very uneasy, the hall was crowded, coughing sounds were heard here and there, in every corner... Feeling "siyeh" (fearsome), I chose a seat behind and went in and out of the hall many times, in out, in out, and finally going up to my office and onlined instead. I rather miss attending the "dangerous" course....

This H1N1 is getting into my head! All of a sudden, I have sore throat... "hello... so fast meh or coincidence?" But No fever...No cough.... Gosh! Am I Being Paranoid?

  15. it's not bad to take precaution once in a while... and be paranoid.. as long as you don't affect anyone near you... that would be bad!!!!

  22. haiya.....last week I got fever, sore throat and cough also not scared. You over exaggerated la...
    Furthermore, if your immune system is strong, you won't kena so easily. So, exercise more, sleep more, stress less and eat good food.

  23. Best to avoid crowded places, and if no choice, wear a mask! Take Vitamin C and Omega 3....must build up strong resistance.

  25. looks like the H1N1 is more serious than initially thought. still, it's not too late to take the usual precautions. masks are ok but what's important is to be careful what & whom you come in contact with.
