My Hong Kong trip last 27 was exchange to a tour to room 106. A good hotel service provided by my brother as a gift was switched to a room with 2 beds, a ref, and fruit baskets. My money I saved for shopping was now visible with syringe punctures and spent on IV fluids, antibiotics and mucolytics. I was about to meet some friends and some bloggers but I ended meeting Nancy, my nurse.
Oh my! I was sick for the last 3 days!
Cough, phlegm, chills and fever were a pattern. I thought I can cure myself but it ended asking my mom to let me be confined to a near Hospital. Since it was after the holidays, and my Godfather’s hospital was the nearest, I didn’t want it to look like I was asking for a gift or something so I asked them to take me somewhere else. I never felt bad; my body’s aching so much. I joked to a friend that every year I have to visit a hospital and stay for at least 2 days. It’s a MUST for me, I think.
For those of us who tries to live on our own or was used to taking care of ourselves, the most difficult thing we can experience is getting sick. So the moment I started feeling sick, I told my mom I can handle it. I can get an ice pack, I can get my own water, and I can prepare my tea. But, I’m not ashamed of this, I longed for my parents to take care of me. I even longed for my siblings to do something for me. Not on an abusive way, but when my body ached, I told them I can’t do things anymore. I needed them.
I’m currently at home right now and resting.
First, I’m thankful for another year that will soon end. It maybe not my luckiest and not my worst but I enjoyed it.
Secondly I’m sorry for my shortcomings and if I given my word but wasn’t able to accomplish it.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Let’s toast for a new start.
Let’s toast for shitty 08 will soon end.
Let’s toast for our families and friends!
