under the weather

One of the problems with living in densely populated areas is when a virus or bug is going around you have a better chance of picking it up from someone.   Having spent a week in the city I got back to the island on Friday and started to get a sore throat.  Foolishly I thought I’d shake it off and by Sunday I had a full blown strep infection.  As a typical bloke I thought I’d tough it out without assistance but after 2 days of dragging myself around the house I eventually took myself to the doctor to get some antibiotics and I’m well on the mend.  It’s easy to take our access to modern and effective medicine for granted.  For less than $10 I had a course of miracle tablets in my hand. Living in a first world country definitely has its benefits.
