This dog is not only a man’s best friend 🙂
A cat’s too!
That is November & December for me. Not a week that me and/or my son is not sick. This started when we start pre-school of course. But it got worse when the weather changed from Autumn to Winter. It got worse that I dont remember how it is to be not sick anymore.
I think it is because we are exposed to the elements when we go to school. Son and I don’t use car and we are out there for the viruses and bacteria to latch on to.
They are latching pretty well too =P
So we had everything, from fever to cough to runny nose to dry itchy skin.
Last last nigh tho is something else for me.
I woke up in the middle of the night feeling queezy. I went to the toilet and vomited salive. thick ones. No food.. just those.
And i feel really really weak and cold all over. I dont even remember what im feeling but I know that I am on the floor. Holding on to the toilet bowl to stay sitting and I wish that mu husband is there but he is at work delivering pizza.
I thought that I am going to die and I am crying because my son is inside our room alone and theres no one to help us. I want to dial 999 but I cant even stand up.
After vomiting nothing. I waited. Waited. Let some warm water from the bath tub tap.. thats the only level that I can go. I cant stand for the sink. And let the warm water warm my clammy cold hands.
It must have done wonders cuz I was able to literally crawl back to bed, back to my son. He is awake now and is waiting. Probably wondering whats going on.
He hugged me. I dont know what I have or if what I have is bad for him but I felt that I needed the hug cuz I feel cold and he is feverish.
Everything felt really really cold.
I am not even sure if I am still alive when I went to bed. Could I be a ghost already =P
It went on and on until i fell asleep.
I woke up with hubby already in bed. I feel wee bit better now.
I need something to fight this. I am not use to being this weak from sickness. I use to be the last one standing when its flu season is my country.
I of course is taking a lot of vitamins in there. Exercising when I can and eating healthy.
I have to admit that I am not doing anything of that here so I am so vulnerable. I hate it. I hate it.
I need to reclaim my November & December.
Its complicated to send gifts in my country.
So many red tape and bureaucracy. When Im home I have to pay big loads of money just to get my DHL package.
So sending my mother, sister a gift will be a chore to them. Not what I want them to feel this xmas. I can of course send money but I dont have any sadly.
I won his from BodyShop and W&H magazine. I was thinking what a nice timing cuz I dont have gifts for my family yet. This would have been a good gift to them as my mother handwashes and my sister always bathes the dogs. So they need handcreams. Perfect right?
But they are too far and sending this would have cost us more than the gift itself.
I have 2 other people who will be a good receiver tho. My mother and sister-in-law. I wrapped the gift and will give this to them not because they are my second choice to give the gifts to. but because i would just imagine… in my head.. when I gave them the gifts that they are my mother & sister. That instead of handing it to my in-laws I am handing it to the 2 people that I miss the most.. my mother & sister.
Am i bad for doing this?
But I need to do this in order to.. to be sane.
I terribly miss my mother & sister…. I am going crazy.
Thats how my brain copes.. I imagine things..
Merry CHRISTMAS nanay and Bagel. I miss you esp on Xmas. Can you also imagine that I gave this to you =P
I am from a third world country, hunger and poverty is hurting my people the most. Hunger is not a pretty sight especially when it involves children. Witnessing hunger made me want to help of course. But I am only one and I dont have the resources to change the current situation. Luckily there is World Food. It is a company that aims to help reduce world hunger. With the charity STOP HUNGER NOW, World Food is helping people like me help people who are hungry. And of course you can help too!

My son loving our Christmas Tree!
