It’s hard to be sick especially when you are in a strange country that only few knew how to speak a little English.
Hubby is feeling sick since yesterday, I think he got a flu. His body is sore and have a fever I am so worried that I don’t know what to do. He don’t want me to buy a medicine for him because he is not used to take one, he asked me if I want to eat Chinese food, I told him no because I am so worried to left him alone.
To cut the story short, I still went out to buy Chinese food even there’s a heavy rain, but that’s not all I did. I also bought a flu medicine to the nearest drugstore I’ve seen, how did I do it? I translate “flu medicine” to Korean language via google translate then I wrote it in a piece of paper (see photo above). So when I go to the drugstore I just show the paper with the words I have written. Below is the medicine the lady gave me.,
I am not to sure even the lady says doggam yebang
so when I reached the Chinese restaurant, I ordered a take out. My shyness was no where to be found anymore, she told me to sit but I did not, I asked her if it is for flu and show the medicine and the small paper if it is right? The young lady replied yes so I sit down in one of the chair at the nearest table. Maybe in order to be sure the lady came near me and look at the medicine and to my piece of paper. So I asked her again if it is a flue medicine, and she said yes.
I feel relax even I am little cold, even I have an umbrella I still get wet. I just noticed that your shyness disappear when you are very worried about your love one. So when I get home I asked my husband to eat but he don’t feel like eating, I gave him the medicine I bought. He asked me how did I get it and etc., he did not trust the medicine what if it is not the right one and so on.., so I told him not to take it if he don’t trust the medicine, land just wait until Monday and show it to your co-teacher. Well he still took the medicine after eating a toasted bread with peanut butter.
We sleep early, when he wake up this morning he is not too hot anymore but still weak and feeling cold with muscle aches. As of now he is still feeling sick, I am asking him to bring him in to a doctor. He keep mouthing I am like a mother., lol
