The one thing that we took for granted

This past two weeks, I’ve learned a very valuable lesson which I want to share it with everyone.

There is one thing that I always took for granted, that I didn’t really care about, because I always thought I was a wonderwoman, made of steel. And now, I really REALLY understand how I was wrong for taking it for granted.

It’s the health.

I’m not a super healthy person, I do get sick once in a while like coughing, gastric, ulcer and stuff, but usually I didn’t really take it seriously. I would just went to doctor, drink the meds for a day or two and I would be healthy again in no time.

On 31st May, I got a high fever, 38,9 degrees to be exact. (I think the last time I had fever was when internet wasn’t invented. Haha) I was even hallucinating during my fever. I was sent home from office by my company driver and I went to bed straight and got blurry for the next 24 hours. Bandi took care of me and I got better the next day. Again, I took it for granted and went crazy on World Street Food Congress, not to mention followed by McDonald’s the next day.

Six days after the fever, I felt uneasy on my body so I went to doctor again and the doctor said I might have caught some kind of virus. This virus caused me so much trouble! I got Faringitis (radang tenggorokan) that was very serious I lost my voice, the virus also made me cough some blood and I felt tired all the time til I had to stop my daily sit-ups (which I started since 1st January this year and unbreakable! Hiks. pencitraan dulu dong.)

However, now… 14 days since the fever I’m still sick! (WTF)

I have been eating right, drinking enough water, resting well and yet, still am sick. Bandi happened to catch my virus too and even though he had been trying so hard to avoid it, the first thing happened after we were back from our proposal trip was… he got a high fever.

(what’s this supposed to mean, universe? He’s rarely sick and the first thing happened after he proposed to me is falling sick?! Whaaaatttt)

Anyway, we’ve been miserable this week. We couldn’t eat good food, we couldn’t talk a lot and the worse, we couldn’t make out! (OH NO!)

I have been juicing Strawberries, blueberries, kiwis and bananas, eaten apple everyday and even drank raw honey! And nothing to seem working out. We’re still miserably coughing, sneezing and the throat is still sore. =(

Yesterday I went to the doctor again, for the third time! (Guess third time really is a charm.) The doctor gave me another round of antibiotics. I kept swearing in my mind…

Oh how I wish I didn’t take my health for granted.

Oh I promise to always take care of my health, not to eat anything I want anymore. Waaaaaaaaaaa!! I’m so sick of being sick!!!

I swear I will change my lifestyle! I swear!

I really do understand that now that being healthy is indeed the most important thing of all. SERIOUSLY!

No matter how much free time you have, or how much money you have or if you’re in Maldives at the moment, it won’t mean anything and it won’t feel good unless you’re healthy.

Oh I will seriously start to take care of my health and not to take it for granted anymore! I sweeeeaaar!!!

(insert any Line Character’s exaggerating crying sticker)

Today, thankfully, I feel much better. And you know what I want? I want to eat chocolate! Geez! But somehow I controlled myself not to eat it (at least for the next two weeks).

I really need to recover fully and back to be healthy and to be a wonderwoman again. =)

For those who happen to stumble on this post, this is a reminder to eat healthy and stay healthy!!!


May, will stop being sick and resume being awesome.

P.S. Beside the good news I shared with my maid of honor, I also happened to share my virus. LOL.

  1. ceceeee!!! get well soon yaaa!!!! >,<
    aku juga kemaren habis sakit 2 minggu itu juga langsung berdoa "Tuhan sembuhin dong, aku janji bakal hidup lebih sehaat.. tapi aku mau sembuh!" hahahahaha!!!
    aku juga sekarang udah sadar kalo jaga kesehatan itu super duper penting *nods*

    p.s. bedanya kita, kalo aku sakit obatnya itu cokelat hahahaa

      • habis kan aku punya kelainan lambung (sama kemaren ditambah radang ulu hati) jadinya buat ngilangin mualnya harus pake cokelat :D
        /jadi keinget kemaren dulu dibeliin cadbury/
        aku juga mau sashimi… *salah fokus*

        betewe baru sadar, cece punya line?? :DD

  2. I feel ya, girlie. Banyak duit dan waktu luang ga berasa nikmatnya kalo kesehatan terganggu. cepet sembuh ya neng.. eat clean, stay active, rest should be healthy and remain a wonderwoman of steel :D

  3. Viruses are our enemies. But fortunately the good news is you – after one of them devils got you and got you bad- you’ve almost recovered. Tomorrow you will be you’re old self again. Which is what one would expect a genuine wonderwoman to do.

    But what about Bandi? Is he still ailing? (In case: best wishes).

    By the way, though I know all of us should eat healthy always, I ,by sheer ignorance, didn’t quite get from what you deduct that your physical troubles were caused by wrong food. It wasn’t chocolate, was it?

    • :( just went back from doctor to get a round of antibiotics for bandi.
      The problem about Singapore is, because this is an aquarium country, it is very easy for people to catch any new and popular virus. You just need to sit down for an hour inside mrt and there you go, you’ve got one.
      Everyone is sick and it is very easily spread, and yeah it is very difficult to recover because you will be likely invected again. :(((
      And it’s gotten worse because I shouldn’t eat sweet things. :((
      Thanks for the concern colson. Hopefully everyone gets a good peaceful weekend. :)

  4. Get well sooooon and speedy recovery *eh bener gak sih frasa ini hihihi*
    DI kota kesayanganmu ini juga lagi banyak virus, di skul krucils gonta ganti sakit, dan rata-rata virus yang masalahnya cuma di kekebalan tubuh lagi drop kan, secara cuacanya tak terprediksi banget deh.

  5. Mudah2an cepet sembuh ya, gak usah sakit2 lagi, btw janjinya kalo sembuh banyak bener yah. Tapi orang sakit emang gak doyan ngapa2in yah, tp kalo banyak duit masih brrti dunk, kan bisa buat berobat duitnya :)

  6. may!! how are you today?!!! gw doain biar loe sama bandi cepet sembuh! amin!!! biar cepet-cepet bisa make out lagi!! gw tau loe ngebet banget kan? HAHAHA ..

    rest well dear may and bandi!!! aer putihhhhhhhhhh hajar!! cincau juga boleh, bener kan ya boleh setau gw .. ;)

    • Hahahaha yoi!!! Masa sejak engaged gue belum ada make out session (dan session session lainnya) gak romantis banget kannnn! Biasanya kan di film2 habis say yes gitu banyak adegan romantis! Huh!

      Lu bukan internet dari dunia antah berantah mana nihhh???

  7. Wah sounds familiar May.. Kynya virus itu memang lg umum di sg.. Beberapa tmn gw jg pada kena dan symptoms nya sama. It takes soooo long for the illness to run its course.. Hope you n bandi fully regain your health soon ya!

  8. Nahhh.. Semakin termotivasi diriku untuk hidup sehat!!.. :D Cepet pulih yah May dan Bandi, biar romantis2nya bisa kembali dilanjutkan :p

  9. Oooooohhh sakit toh?? Aduh May, minum air yang banyak loh. Gw liat di berita, Singapore hazy lagi ya?? Wkt hazy yang terakhir, gw kena radang tenggorokan. So I guess, kalo lo ga take a good care of yourself, the haze can helps you worsen the sickness… Ayo semangat!!

  10. betul banget tuh.. health itu udah paling berharga dah…

    pernah nyoba makan madu manukka gak may? kita kalo lagi kurang fit suka makan madu ini. trus kalo lagi sakit tenggorokan makan manukka dicampur lime juice.

    trus kita denger dari banyak temen katanya royal jelly juga bagus buat antibodi. belum nyobain sih, tapi mau nyobain… :)

  11. Kamu! cepet sembuh ya!
    apalagi ditambah haze haze gini..jangan jadi tambah lama yaaa sakitnya!

    redoxon, lo han kuo apalah itu semua..hajar aja!
