It's uncanny how that guy up there love to answer to prayers in a manner that is not quite what you asked for but then again, really isn’t too far from what you wished.
In my previous post, I mentioned about how I wished I could just lay in bed and sleep for hours and days.
My wish was granted.
I was confined to bed early last night for hours and hours due to severe tummy upset, nausea and headache, only that I didn't sleep the full hours of confinement as the pain was too unbearable which often left me awake. It's the similar kind of pain and symptoms from my last gastric flu. The symptoms aren’t as bad as I did not puke or have diarrhoea as many times as the last. However, the pain is much worse than the last. It feels like someone is squeezing and pulling at my stomach and intestines.
I just came back from the doctor’s not too long ago. My usual nice and motherly doctor wasn’t around so I had to pop next door. Since it was the first time the doc saw me, he had to ask about my lifestyle, work, stress etc. He tried to probe more about what my job scope entails as he initially suspected my symptoms were stress-related. He started to lecture me about my health, lifestyle, irregular eating hours, my sleep, my job etc that I could not help but cry in his office and use up so much of his toilet paper. Having a stranger telling me all the exact same words loved ones & good friends have been telling me made me feel the pain of his words even more coz he doesn't even know me. It was quite embarrassing but I feel that it was a good scolding. Lots more went on but I shan’t go into detail.
It sucks to be sick when the hubby is overseas for a 1-month work detachment. How very unfortunate.The last major illness also occurred when he was on an overseas detachment.
My pain is acting up again and I’m gonna head for my comfortable bed once more. My stomach is so empty; I’m so hungry but I’ve got no appetite to eat.
Edited to add on 10th March:
Thank you all for your concern and virtual words of “medication”. Those really perked me up. I’m on my 3rd day mc. I’d wanted to head back to office today but my lovely dept people told me to stay at home and so we settled lots of work via emails, texting and phone calls. Glad that I can “rest in peace” now and do my marking at home with easy access to the toilet, food and medication. Not to mention, the comfortable bed! I’m feeling drowsy thinking of my bed. I'll be replying your comments in a while so do check back.
