Just as I was ready to get into the swing of things, disaster struck. Okay, I am a bit melodramatic when I use the word disaster, but being sick in Nepal is no celebration either. While posting my last entry, I felt a slight soreness in my throat. The next day… well it’s hard to describe exactly what I felt the next day because it was a bit of a blur. Let’s just say that my head, throat, and lungs decided to start a revolution against the rest of my body.
This is just one of those reality checks that I should have expected while coming back to this part of the world. Even though I usually have a “been there, done that” attitude when it comes to South Asian maladies, I can’t help but get frustrated when my body just doesn’t cooperate with the goals set by my mind. The recovery is slow but steady right now. Hopefully by my next post, I’ll be good to go.
