My X-ray result lead me to OVER THINKING
Hello everyone it's been a while again, I'm absent for couple of weeks in this platform coz of some reason and one of that reason my inactivity here is the power of laziness that flows in all my body. Illness hit me this past few weeks and even now, my health issue have a big impact not only here but also in my work coz I'm almost one week absent due to I suffered from a cold that lead me from constant coughing and a runny nose.
I never give attention at first in my cough but days passed by my cough get worsen and even at nights this thing lead me to wake up in the night and also it cause me from a sleepless nights because of this. I'm a kind of person who is not fan of taking drugs for a simple colds or even when I have a fever but now this personality of mine made me realize and made me regret of what I've done in my health. I regret of not taking a medicine early untill I found out one early morning I spit with blood and this incident made me overthink of whats going on in my internal organs of where that blood came from. I search information about the possible reasons of coughing with blood and some of what I read made me depressed and overthink to the highest level Lol coz as I've said always I'm not ready to die and I'm afraid of dying.
Because of my nonstop coughing and those one time that I spit a blood made me decide to go for a check up if this thing is a serious illness, I said everything to the doctor and he prescribed me a thee types of medicine that I must to take in a week and also I suggested to the doctor that I need request for a chest xray just to sure if I have something serious disease if I will still live longer Lol. To make the story short I travelled to the neighbor town which is in Sogod Southern Leyte to have that xray, while waiting for the film and the result this moment made me talk to God and pray for a normal result.
After for how many hours waiting the result was finally give it to me by the nurse and I hurriedly look first the film of my chest and look to my both lungs if it's the same six months ago coz I still have also my chest xray film six months for the requirements of my work, I compare first if there's changes but I saw nothing it looks like the same but when I look at the result I feel very down of what I've read the moment of truth made me depressed coz it was written in the impression it was bronchitis, I didn't know what this medical term bronchitis but this word made me down of what kind of term is this if this is a seriously deadly desease or etc.
The first line and the Impression made me down, Overthinking flows again over my head. While driving back home I feel like I'm not in focused in the road and in my driving coz my mind keep in thinking of those term bronchitis if it is deadly and serious, I don't know what I felt those time while driving coz as I've noticed that moment I drive sometimes so fast and sometimes very slow like the speed depends of my emotion of what I think. It is very risky time for me coz I felt like I'm dying thinking those unfamiliar terms in the result of my chest xray, negativity slowly kills my normal thinking that time but despite of all the emotions while driving home I still manage to got home safe.
After a while, I go to the center and look for my doctor who check up me last time, so I give him the film and the result of my xray, he look at first the film and after he read the printed result in the short bond paper and I'm wondering why is it he don't have a lot of comments about it and he only tell me if I still have a cough and I replied that I feel okay now than last few days and then after he write something in paper and I found out that it was only additional one kind of medicine he prescribed only that I must to buy.
After all, I'm still not contented I confronted the doctor if I have a serious disease and what's that term bronchitis as a result of my chest xray, he look at me and said that it is a allergy that causes a viral infection that causes a cough and cold that came from the dirt that we inhale such as in Aircon dust and the dust in the roads and more specially from cigarettes. I must to avoid from now on those things that might can trigger in this more specially cigarettes.
I ask for a medical certificate to present in my supervisor when the time that I want to go back to work, he advised five to seven days rest coz the environment that I'm working on is a air-conditioned and being in the cold area can trigger the cough so the doctor advised that I must finish first the seven days taking of the prescribe medicine for seven days .
So that's the update i my current life now, bot that good but still grateful that I'm still kicking and alive.
Thanks for dropping by my friend.
