I went to the municipal health center at midday. In there, you take a queue number so you can go to the nurse- on- call. I got the number 117, I had 11 patients before me, and considering how many patients there are on Mondays, especially after holidays, I didn't have to wait all that long.
I told the nurse that my ears were blocked with earwax, and I was also afraid that my bronchitis from autumn 2017 was coming back. She looked at my ears with some sort of scope and told me that by now the earwax has dried up, and if she rinses the ear, it will get inflamed. I was told to drip Remo- Wax into the ear for a couple of days, and come again next Monday. She also took a blood sample, looked into my throat, and listened to my lungs, and told me that it's probably not bronchitis, just a normal seasonal flu, and I was told to take it easy and drink green tea.
I went straight back home, and soon my HoivaOnni worker came for the weekly appointment. I washed the dishes and talked with her a bit, after that I took out the trash.
In the evening, I travelled to Helsinki and visited a few shops just to look around.
Once back home, I called my granny and asked her if I can come for the "winter- time visit" on January 29th - February 4th, and she said it's alright.
My life is pretty awesome right now.
