The H1N1 near death experience


I thought I had always imag­ined the scene of the movie Out­break; dark, creepy, met­al-framed bed of a med­ical facil­i­ty with some­one in a bright flo­res­cent pro­tec­tive suit mum­bling some­thing through the build in microphone.

Arriv­ing at New York not too long ago, I nev­er thought it would be that easy for me to catch the flu virus. I had pre packed N95 masks, plen­ty of hand san­i­tiz­ers, and even make sure the place where I sleep are clean from the virus by anti bac­te­ria sprays, and I spray on my body lots of D&G fra­grance (alco­hol kills germs, you see).

I am in tears again. Not because I had missed the near death expe­ri­ence, but because some­one had showed me a pic­ture of The Boy, togeth­er with his new boy friend.

I don’t know. I thought I had got­ten over The Boy, but every sin­gle time I see his pic­tures, with some­one else I can turn from a hap­py mood to a grumpy sad mood. Is it real­ly that hard to for­get someone?


Leav­ing the quar­an­tine was per­haps one of the hap­pi­est moment that I had. I made friends, and most of them are not released yet. It was crowd­ed, but I was moved to a sin­gle pri­vate room on the 3rd day, since I was then con­sid­ered safe.

Clothed with only the hos­pi­tal gown, it does make me feel uneasy. With my butt ful­ly exposed most of the time, some of the male nurs­es had been eying on it, I am pret­ty sure.

Back home, dad already cleaned up the place, spray­ing it all over with anti-bac­te­ria sprays. It does make the whole place smells like the hos­pi­tal, but it is a risk that I would not want to take; not in the quar­an­tine, with­out any enter­tain­ment, that is.

So for now, I am back. Still a healthy young boy try­ing to strife in life, being a suc­cess, and have some­one dear­ly near­by to enjoy life togeth­er. Of course, with lots of beau­ti­ful pic­tures to show everyone.

I thank those who showed their con­cerns on my blog, on MSN, and the SMSs to my phone. Real­ly nev­er thought so many peo­ple would care. Love you all!
