A & E ward.

I had a really dramatic evening last night.

It ended with me in the A&E ward-- just to sustain your interest first wtf.

Armed with my organizer and my tablet, I was all ready for a meeting for AZORIAS. While driving to the meeting place, I felt a slight itch on the lower lashline of my left eye. A mild irritation, but nothing that I gave much thought to. Within minutes, I developed a slight cough too, and but all I thought to myself was, shucks, don't tell me that I am going to fall sick, and pushed it out of my mind.

Upon reaching the meeting, the itch worsened. When I checked my reflection in my compact mirror, there was a small swell which I wrote off as an insect bite. But as the meeting went on, I found it harder and harder to concentrate as I could literally feel my eye swell up. The skin around felt tight and taut, and I was having trouble seeing already. Shoot, I knew it was an allergy then and there. I called up my dad, and he told me to KIV on my condition, and that if it worsen, I would have to go to the hospital. To control my condition, I popped an anti-histamine pill (I always carry such pills with me as I have a sinus problem). However, in another few minutes, even my other eyes started swelling. And that's when I panicked. I had an allergy attack when I was 10 years old, and I ended up in the hospital for 1 night, with my head swelled up like a pig head and having difficulties breathing (as the allergy caused my respiratory system to swell too). I called my dad, and he said, "Not good. Go home now, and I will bring you to the hospital".

I was sent home by my partner, and then fetched to the hospital by my dad. By the way, he told me in the car that he had a lot of wine to drink and that he might have difficult injecting me (he's a doctor for those of you who are uninformed). -____________- And he asked me to not be scared, I just need to turn my head away. -_______________-

Long story short, I was brought into the A & E ward (thanking my lucky stars that I didn't see any gory things in there), and a male nurse injected me (I got two jabs T_T). I am also under medication for the next 2 days to keep the allergens at bay. Medication that makes me very drowsy. :(

By the way, if you are wondering what I was allergic to, I don't know either. :/ I suspect it could be mentaiko as that was the last meal I had... But then again, I have had mentaiko before and was okay.

I told my friend about mentaiko and he was like, "what is that, it sounds like a Japanese porn star". -__________-
