"In the end, our health still matters"
Our achievements are worthless if we have some illness. In the end our health still matters, as it is our real wealth.
Hello there lovelies it's me again, yesterday I failes to write an article as I don't feel well the whole day, and my son as well.
Last Sunday night I sleep earlier than usual. Actually before I fall asleep last Sunday night I ask my partner to massage my back and shoulders as I felt a little pain, then after he massage my back I immediately fall asleep and let him accompany our son .
I had a complete eight hours of sleep, as I woke up yesterday morning at exactly 8 o'clock. That means I had a longer sleep than usual since I give birth.
Unfortunately, instead of having a good body condition I fell unwell. I feel that my whole body is in pain, my head is aching. I feel like I am having a hangover as I felt that my head is lighter, and my eyes are blurry as well. Lol. I also felt a little dizzy.
However my daily tasks still continue. Although I am not feeling well upon waking up, I still go to the market to buy our viand. I prepare first our rice in the rice cooker then I headed to the market. While walking I can really feel that the street is moving as I am dizzy, but I act like normal so I won't catch anyone's attention. I felt a little dizzy but I manage to go home safe and finish my cooking.
Life of a wife, wouldn't stop even if she's not already feeling well. This is the disadvantage of being in a relationship. Lol.
My son is also not feeling well yesterday, he has a fever when he wakes up, but it's not as high as the last time. I don't know what's the cause of his fever, and so I didn't take him to bath. I just clean him using a towel with a lukewarm water then I give him his medicine and massage his body using coconut oil.
It is really hard if I am not feeling well, and my son is sick too as I really can't rest. Luckily at around 11: 00 AM he had his nap and so I got a chance to rest. Suppose yesterday I'll be going to wash our laundry, but since I am unwell I prefer to rest as my son also needs me. I can't be sick if he isn't well as he always wants me, even if his Papa is around he always wants me.🤷🥱.
When my son fall asleep, I lay down in our bed as I also wanted to sleep to gain some strength, but the kids outside keeps on yelling. Since I am not feeling well, their noise makes me irritated. I open our door and told them to stop yelling as my son is sleeping, but unfortunately kid's didn't care and they continue to yell. I was really annoyed but I can't do anything, but just to lay back in our bed.
I can't sleep because of the noise outside and so I just opened my phone and decided to read some articles. I know I shouldn't abuse my eyes as it is already in pain but I can't sleep. I make a little engagement as well but I think I only read ten articles and interact to five writer's and just upvotes to others, as my eyes are really blurry. My headache is also getting worst, and so I stop reading and close my eyes until I didn't notice that I have already fall asleep.
I think I had more than one hour of light sleep yesterday afternoon, and it makes me feel a little better. When I woke up at around 1: 30 my eyes are still blurry and I still feel a little dizzy and so I just decided not to use my phone.
Honestly I wanted to publish an article last night, as my goal is to have a complete 30 articles for this month , but my brain is still weak. I mean, it's still not willing to work for me, and I don't wanna forced my self and get frustrated 🙈🤣. Naaahhh, I don't wanna get sick for long and so I just go to sleep and allow my brain to relax. A healthy mind is a healthy body, vice versa.
This morning when I woke up I still have a body ache. I don't know what is happening to me, but I didn't take any medicine yet. As long as I can I really don't like to take any medicine, as for me it ain't really necessary at all times, specially if my illness is just simple as headache and body aches. Enough rest is all I need.
Luckily my son's fever is already gone, last night his already fine and so I also got a good sleep but I don't know I'm still not feeling well. However I am really thankful that my son's fever didn't get worst or else it's a big trouble for me. Hopefully I also get better as I really don't like being sick.
Being healthy is really important, but sometimes we neglect our own health as we are busy doing our responsibility and focus to our daily tasks. We forgot that all our efforts and hard-works are worthless if our body is weak and got some illness.
...thank you for reading.
