Screwed Up Medical System

September 18, 2008  |  Irritated, Kuwait, My Life, Sick

I haven’t been feeling good, I have a high temperature, cough, and runny nose.  So technically it could be classified as a case of the flu or a cold right?

Well I got worse this morning so I was not even able to go to work, and I don’t usually miss out on work unless I am in the worst possible situation ever.  And for me not to be able to get out of bed, and feeling a pain in my chest as well as my body burning up means something is wrong with me.  Unfortunately after fitour I decided to go to the local “Mostawsef” (Little hospital thingy in our local neighborhood) to sign my sick leave and see if I can get some meds.  And what do I get when I go there?  A sorry excuse for a doctor calling me a liar.

I enter his room when my number shows up on the door, and he goes “What’s wrong” I go “I think I have the flu and I need you to sign my sick leave” he goes like “You think?  Or is it just for the sick leave?” Dad was luckily with me so he intercepted and said “She’s right in front of you why don’t you check?”  and what does that asshole do?  “Open your mouth” and puts the tongue thingy and says that I have a little swelling in the glands or whatever, then “Look to the left” and puts the stethoscope on my shirt and tells me “Breathe in and breathe out” and that’s it!  Didn’t even bother to take my temperature.. Didn’t even bother with anything else.

The solution, he gave me some panadol, cough syrup, and antibiotics.  That’s all oh and let’s not forget him calling me a drama queen and liar just to get out of work and sign a sick leave and pretending to be sick with the flu.  

Yeah, I guess we should all cheer for our beautiful governmental medical system shouldn’t we?

Working Sick

September 17, 2008  |  iPhone

So I’m sick at work right now finishing my pending work so I can leave and get some rest because this flu is going to be the end of me. I miss not being able to blog yesterday and it seems that ananyah and I are both obsessed with the wordpress for the iPhone application cause it’s seriously awesome. So until later ooh damn my head feels heavy now!

My Brain is Screwed On Backwards

September 16, 2008  |  Reflections

I don’t know but I always sit in bed at night and think, and feel that my brain is screwed on backwards.  It’s just that sometimes when I am being told something I can never follow them.  I’m trying to even think of examples but I just can’t.  

Don’t you get that feeling, you know, you’re standing there listening to someone go on and on about something and you just get lost after the first sentence, hell first word, you feel embarrassed to even ask again and try to understand it.  

Try asking me to solve a mathematical equation that involves thinking, I will literally go all quiet and then get agitated and force you to get out a calculator and do it yourself because I know I will mess up.  I am more of a visual person rather than a theoretical one.  Show me something, show me how it’s done, don’t tell me what to do.

Love you all, princess more than others :*

How Jacqui Got Her Groove Back

September 16, 2008  |  Kuwait, My Life

I feel like I’m slowly getting my groove back.  With my iPhone I get to post more and more, and whenever I get an idea I just type it out and press publish and viola.  Even taking pictures and posting them up is easier.  I am in love with it.  But anyways, what is better?

Jacqui writing one post a day quite long and annoying?

or

Jacqui writing more than one post a day each so short you can read it while literally blinking your eyes.

 

I am finding myself again.  I really am and I should because without me there is nothing good inside.  Oh and regardless of how much I hate hate hate hate work I believe that I am getting a great amount of experience.  Customer serivce is truly the hardest job ever and to master even a tiny part of it is an accomplishment so YAAAY ME!
