7 days of Sickness …

Last week I was down by infection which lead to fever this dint get cured until 7 days … now for a creature like me lying in bed, doing nothing for 7 days and also listening to health lectures by amma and appa was the toughest task of my life…

As I wrote this experience of 7 days in my dairy yesterday night I also thought I have to share the same with you all …

Day 1: I got to know that I have got some infection so now I had to go to doc which I hate as always. The reason for me to hate my doc is he always scolds me; yes there is a genuine reason for him to scold me because I always neglect my health. So as soon as he sees me he starts scolding me even before asking why I have visited him!!!

So he gave me some temporary medicine and asked me to get some reports done. Me with usual over confidence thought that these reports are not necessary and took the medicine for one day.
Learning: Do not hate your doc, if you hate him change the doc…

Day 2: I was back to office with full fresh smile but still I felt that I hadn’t completely recovered, by afternoon the fever started increasing and I thought I need lot of rest so decided to go home early. At times I forget that I have done BE and not MBBS. So rushed home and slept for a while. By this time amma had started her lecture to do pranayama every morning which I am not doing! Appa started saying that these days you are roaming around a lot so no rest and hence all these sufferings. By then fever increased and I decided that next day morning I will get the reports done which doc had prescribed!
Learning: Listen to your parents occasionally, surprisingly they will be true at times…

Day 3: Fever had taken its control on me still I managed to go to Lab and get the reports done but for my bad luck they told that I will get the reports only after 2 days … so this meant that I had to suffer like this for 2 more days

Continuous fever and pain in stomach had decreased my confidence. On top of it Mom’s care and dad’s love was increasing :). But deep with in me I had regrets for not taking care. Between I kept troubling my best friend asking him to visit me as I felt lonely…
Learning: It’s the best to have a friend who tolerates your cribbing… but be sure to crib in limits.

Day 4: Another torturous day in these seven days. Couldn't get up from my bed, my energy level decreased to 20% and was so scared tat I will die!

Lying in my bed I thought I will die soon… Gosh I remembered all my college friends, incompletely tasks, wishes and dreams of my life. Isn’t it silly how much we love our life… but I realized I have so many incomplete task that I dearly want to do.

Amidst the cribbing with my friend continued and increased. Dependency on appa and amma had also increased.
Learning: Don’t leave anything half done, complete it, if not it haunts u a lot.

Day 5: I was so happy that I will get my reports and doc will treat me immediately. So till 5 in the evening I was waiting and got the reports. Finally I rushed to doc and gave him the reports.

As soon as he saw me started scolding for not getting the reports done immediately and after seeing the report he dint stop scolding I thought he will call up and scold me even after I leave the clinic. Even for my surprise I was with corers of harmful Bacteria with me all these 5 days. Then as usual I got my Medicines and that was Injections twice a day for next five days. Had I done all that doc had told at right time, It would be 2 small tablets to swallow now its Injection!!!!!!!!
Learning: Please don’t neglect wat Doc says though u hate him because small tablets transforms into huge painful injections!!!!

Day 6: Recovering back to normal, my energy level increased to 60%. Again appa amma started lecture about health and fitness and I started shouting at them that they need not say me the same things again and again. And my friend who was with me all these days had to tolerate my drama while I am taking my injection.
Learning: There is ego in each one of us, astonishingly that is not there in you only when u are in trouble.

Day 7: I am perfectly alright, no more stomach ache or fever but I must tell you Injections do pain a lot and it’s even paining now!!!
But now back to form talking, smiling being over enthusiastic and being Egoistic with appa, amma and my friend.

Learning:
1. Don’t neglect your health it’s very precious.
2. And if u are down with fever remember its only fever and there are so many others suffering from so many health problems which they can never get cured of.
3. Engage your self when u are not feeling well by which u will forget the pain – easy to say tough to execute (Gyan given from my best friend), but this works.
4. Love your self, take care.

That’s all… I am back to write and trouble you all more :).
