And Now, 2022!

And so, another set of 365 days is now a palette of memories.

We all had our ups and downs, because every year, we go through the same, somehow.

But in the end, we learn something and move on towards the new.

As for me, my learning process was put on a massive hold in the last days of 2021, thanks to seasonal flu and and an unexpected side effects of antibiotics I took for the treatment.

I was coughing since last Friday and it was a severe one, which wasn’t curing with my usual herbal medicines, so I decided to take antibiotics eventually because Uzair was at home, enjoying his winter vacations and I planned earlier about going out with him for some recreational activities.

Those antibiotics cured my flu condition but their side effect swelled my tonsils and palate area so badly that I was unable to eat or drink anything properly for more than 2 days.

Just to gulp my own saliva down my throat was a daunting task for me for in the last 3 days of 2021, which didn’t allowed me to sleep properly as well. I immediately switched over to the homeopathic treatment as I had enough of antibiotics. The treatment is taking its time but I’m pretty happy with it.

So, that’s the reason behind my absence in the last days of 2021. I planned to start 2022 with a special Weekend Sky episode but that didn’t turned out as planned.

As I’m feeling much better now, and today is 1st January 2022, so I wish you a Happy New Year!

      It was totally unexpected and took me by surprise entirely. I took extra doses of medication on new year’s night.

    It’s a good start to the new year to read that you’re feeling much better. Hopefully that will be the worst thing that happens to you in 2022! πŸ™‚

      It’s 3rd of January now and I’m inching towards recovery. Being extra cautious would be one major factor for me in 2022.
