Malaria Affects Studying

As a few of you have heard, I have Malaria.  By the way, if you have never had it or didn't know, it is not fun.  I have been in bed for the better part of the past two days, sleeping and reading.  I have not gone to class since Tuesday, but I will try to go back this afternoon.  I was feeling better yesterday, as I have switched from Malaria Prevention Medication to Malaria Fighting Medication.  By the way, there is no refund on prophylaxis if you get sick anyway.  However, when I woke up this morning, I was as bad as the first day, so I am taking the morning of and may head to class after morning tea.  It will depend on what I feel I can actually accomplish by going.  So, I haven't exactly been accomplishing anything this week, but at least I proved that Jeffrey Sachs was right, Malaria does decrease output and efficiency.


  1. I hope you get better soon! Dan told me about this a few days ago and I was a little worried about you. I am glad to hear that you are doing better.

  2. Hey Joe. You will get better soon. I just know it!! We are all praying for you here at home. Talk to you soon
