Oh boy. Today was not a fun day.
My cough worsened in the middle of the night, from a dry cough to a really phlegmy one.
I kept waking up and drinking water, and then going to the bathroom. Over and over and over again.
So at 10AM, I was over it and woke up.
Yea, too bad the whole right side of my face hurt! WTF?!?
It was the strangest sensation. What began as an ache only on one specific point of my head travelled down to my cheekbones. For a while, my cheekbones were so sore and tender to the touch. Finally, the pain travelled down to the top right row of my teeth.
I can’t even explain the ache. It’s dull, and it makes me want to grind my teeth really hard to get rid of it. When I touch my teeth or bite down, the area feels numb. Pulling my teeth out sounds pretty good right about now.
Anyone know what’s going on??
I used my internet medical skills and deduced that I probably have a bad sinus infection.
That’s after I freaked out over the possibility that an insect crawled in my ear during the middle of the night, I was having neurological problems, and I needed a root canal.
Reading those forums is scary stuff…
So there was no exercise for me this morning. Instead, I went grocery shopping and got some good eats to make my pain go away.
For lunch, I made the ultimate dippy eggs.
Perfectly runny and ready to burst
I piled the eggs on this bread from Das Gute, a German bakery down the street from us.
They have so many kinds of interesting breads and pastries, but I just wanted a simple whole wheat sandwich bread.
Check out the nutrition label!
I was really confused when I first came to Hong Kong, since they write all of their nutrition information based on a 100g serving. It’s the same serving for everything edible.
So strange for someone who’s used to having a specific serving size for a product.
Also, they put both kilojoules and kilocalories on the label.
I wonder what it’s like in other countries…?
Anyway, the bread had a hearty flavor, but an airy crumb. Soft and delicious!
You bet that I sopped up all the leftover yolk!
For dessert: Watermelon spears!!!
With my inflamed sinuses, I was really craving something cool and fresh.
Watermelon perfectly fit the bill.
I’ll have more of my “sick eats” from the rest of the day in the next post, so stay tuned
Tell Me About You!
Have any of you experienced this weird ache??!! Please help!
What do you look for on nutrition labels?
I usually check out the ingredients first, and then check out the nutritional stats. But that’s never as important as ingredients!
