Yesterday is a day of nightmare to me. The day before, after finishing my teaching job in a training institute, i was on the way back to my dormitory. All of a sudden, I felt the weather changed to be colder swiftly and my thin sleeveless shirt could no longer protect me from the cold. I shivered several times, but I did not pay too much attention to it. That night I just felt a little weary and no other symptoms of cold appeared, so I thought I was totally well.
But yesterday when I got up, I felt great pain all over my body. I also felt heavy in my head and itchy in my throat and continuously coughed. After lunch, I hurried to take some medicine, which made me very tired and sleep for the whole afternoon. But when I got up, I still felt exhausted as if I did not go to bed for several days. I was hold a cup of hot water and sat on the edge of my bed, staring at the floor silently with my eyes dully fixed for some five minutes. Then suddenly, I realized I could not go on like this and rushed into the washroom for a facial wash,and then went downstairs to have my meal. Actually I did not want to attend the English corner at night. But I know I have to, because I am the host and responsible for the whole activity including BEC listening test and BEC composition instruction. Therefore, I sustained myself painstakingly and went to attend the corner.
Last night, I felt my illness reached its peak. I felt hot all over my body and I knew I had a fever then. Meantime, my throat was so itchy and painful that it made me cough nonstop. Every of my cough penetrated my throat to death. Luckily, my roommate Weiping did not sleep in the room with me, or my cough might have deeply disturbed him. I felt a mess in my mind and had a terrible fever. In the midnight, I got up painstakingly again and drank up a full glass of water. I thought if something wrong happened to me, nobody would know at such a time and it was impossible for me to ask someone to send me to hospital then. So the only way to save myself was to drink more water. Then I went to bed again with a dull mind, thinking wether I could open my eyes the next morning.
Maybe my recent mood also affected my illness tremendously. These days I felt terribly upset due to some private affairs haunting my mind. But now I am totally relaxed. As a saying goes, you will get what is doomed to be yours, and you will not get what is not. Since I have tried my best for it, I can barely decide the result. I will not think of it any more. I say to myself again and again that no matter what result it may be, I will move forward boldly and walk out a road that belongs to myself uniquely.
