there are a couple of things i do not like about being sick:
1. going to the hospital usually takes an extremely long time. i was there at 10:30 in the morning and left at 2:30 in the afternoon. the doctor wanted to be sure i did not get the dengue fever. thus, i had to run the blood test. having the needle poke into my arm was less painful than i expected. anyway, the test result took 2 hours.
2. being sick when you live alone is no fun. last night, i was trying to sleep all the while missing mom and sisters. not only do i have to take care of myself but the other chores i need to get done e.g. doing dishes, laundry, filling water bottles and getting food. i know i do not need to do all these in one day but it would be nice if i did not have to worry about it too.
3. everything in my body just hurts and groans. and sleep comes so difficult. last night, i felt like i was floating on the sea…i dreamt about crazy things…i knew it that i was not having a deep sleep. i went to bed at 9:30pm but i got REAL sleep when the clock hit 3:30am. brutal.
4, the expenses is just sky-rocketing. it was as i expected, about 3,000 baht. ‘~’ i thank God that i can reimburse the bill with compassion. what happen to those who cannot afford?! but again, the consulting and seeing the doctor was reasonable but the blood test was the reason why it costs so much.
my fever is 37.9 degree celsius high. though it may not look that bad, it feels terrible. and all i wish right now is someone to be by my side and a good dose of uninterrupted sleep.
so…i do not have the dengue fever at this stage. but the doctor is going to run some more blood test just to be sure. and he will call me again in 2 days.
at least it is good that i can stay at home to rest for a few days. i thank the Lord for this.
please continue to pray for me.
