Day 17: healing, fo reals this time
I hate the pay phones here. They keep eating my money & not connecting me. It was a trial contacting my travel insurance yesterday, and today, after two tries at contacting a drs office specializing in travelers, I gave up & just walked over. Luckily they were able to take me within 30 mins.
Pictured is the map at the. Drs office - look how far I am from you!
Turns out it's sinusitis, my old arch nemesis. So I was kicking myself for not getting a flu shot & for not going to the Dr sooner, but I can give myself a break bc its not the flu & the Dr said she recommends people take over the counter meds for 5-7 days before prescribing anything, so going earlier wouldve just been a waste of money.
It sucks bc my whole reason for going to Adelaide was to do a two day trip to kangaroo island but now I don't think I can handle the adventure tour I was going to take. But I'm still going to do a day tour & keep my private room at the hostel so I can still sleep well.
Aw I ran into my Indian friend (can't spell his name, met on the bus from Melbs)as he was going out & he came back with some vicks vapo rub for me! How nice! Ah soooothing.
For tonight, its Oz TV, veg curry cup-o-noodles, medicine & snooze snooze snooze.
Today I'm so happy & grateful for:
~ a not too expensive Dr visit & prescription meds
~ the kindness of semi-strangers
~ my private recovery bungalow
~ all of your get well wishes - thank you so much!!!!!!!
