Not bored, just ...

Last Tuesday, I found out that someone we'd worked quite closely with for a recent project had unexpectedly --- it seemed, inexplicably --- passed away. Add the fact that I got the information through SMS and that adds a whole other layer of surrealism to the occasion.

Last Thursday, I slipped in the rain, fell down and scraped my knees open. My mother would despair of me. The knees are healing slowly --- yes, I must be getting older because the same wounds used to clot and scab within days when I was a kid --- but still look ugly, unsexy and highly tak glam. Well, at least I'm not limping anymore.

Last Sunday, my stomach decided that it would tease me with all the discomfort of diarrhoea, without any of the actual diarrhoea. Ditto today. I don't know whether to be grateful or disgruntled.

You can try some charcoal tabs for the tummy trouble. You can get it without prescription at any pharmacy. Take one tab 3 times a day. It treats food poisoning, flatulence, indigestion, colic, etc.

I'm not sure if 'motilium' is available without prescription. If it is, it's great for the crampy pains. Failing which, go to a traditional chinese medicine shop and ask for good-old 'Po-Chai-Yuan'. It contains some form of opiate that really works for the pain.

Thanks, Anonymous! I try to reserve charcoal tablets for travels in foreign countries where my stomach might have a bona fide reaction to the food. My other medical staple for stomach ailments is Imodium.

But I think my stomach's just being petulant this week. It really doesn't seem to be anything I ate. So I'll leave it be for a few days...
