I’m not really a sickly person, I believe I have a strong immunity because since Preparatory I rarely get sick, well except for dysmenorrhea but that is just the body’s reaction in most women.
You see since I was a kid, I never had to go to the clinic or be excused to go home early or even be absent because of sickness. I am freaking healthy kid, which bums me a lot!. Every kid wants to have a school-day vacation, most of my classmates have at least one day where they didn’t attend the class, you could see that in the report card; but sadly mine would be complete in attendance.
Now most would say that’s not a bad thing, just remember I was a kid and staying at home on a school day with your parents out of the house screams FREEDOM. You get to watch television the whole day, eat sweets and drink soda and whatever is in the fridge. And you only have the helper with you so you can actually do anything.
Anyway, although this stubborn body of mine wont budge during my elementary days, in High school it has fairly showed defeat in the form of dysmenorrhea; my number one enemy. This is the only thing that could make me weak, pale, and almost pass out. Now the thing I was craving in elementary, I got it during my High school, and that is to go to the clinic. (weird right?)
Every month I’ll be admitted in the clinic for at least 1-2 hours. I would have a warm compress on my tummy and a mefenamic. Good thing I was able to work my way out of those episodes during my college days, where I only get to sleep 3-4 hours a day and especially now that I am working. I found out that exercise and physical exertion is a good way to prevent dysmenorrhea.( try it )
Going back,this 2014 is really bumming me out, first the new year cramps and body malaise, then finding out that there’s no such thing as prince charming and now, after moon-bathing I have fever; and its only January 8!. What more is in store for me!?
So now with a mug of coffee (I love coffee) I gathered my citrus and took a paracetamol. I have a runny nose as well so I look like Rudolfa the red nose egghead, and as much as I would like to stay in bed and snuggle, I opted not to since snuggling with a pillow while your broken is not really therapeutic. I’d rather moon bathe again and bask in the evening cold winds while singing Paminsan Minsan by Richard Reynoso; but since my parents are here I got a mouthful of “what are you doing outside when you’re sick monologue”
Ma lovesick ako kailangan ko mag emote with the moon ( Ma I’m lovesick that’s why I have to be sentimental with the moon) hehe jk I didn’t say that, but I’d like to..
So I’m back here in my bed, writing this piece to bore you, listening to my friends story of debauchery in messenger and singing Can’t Take my Eyes off you by The Muse. Hmm maybe later I’ll pop an antihistamine so that I’ll get a shut-eye. hehe durugista? :))
Here’s to getting sick when you don’t want to. Hayyyyyy (sigh):(
