It wasn't the same

It wasn't the same.

I woke up with a heavy feeling. My body aches especially my back and waist. I guess this is because of my weird position when I was sleeping. I looked for my phone but it slipped on my bed and fell to the floor. I immediately rose to get it so I can check the time. It's 10 o'clock in the morning which means I woke up so late. I was thinking about the reasons why but haven't found any. I remembered I slept early and my shift has ended at 9 PM. After that, I went to our boarding house and fell asleep. I really wondered why I woke up on that time. I fell asleep again after minutes of thinking.

My phone rang consistently so I was again disturbed from my sleep. Dang! It was my grandma asking me about her Facebook password. Until now she has not memorized it even if she's on Facebook for almost 5 years. Well, oldies. After that, I decided to prepare for my breakfast. I cooked rice first in the rice cooker and bought some vegetables to the market. The market was just a walking distance since I am residing in the center town. When I got all I need for my viand, I hastened back to our boarding house to cook.

I prepared all the ingredients for sari-sari. The veggies and spices were all chopped and cleaned. The oil's temperature in the pan was also ready for sauteing. I sauted the onion and garlic first. You already know how pleasant the smell was right? But I found the smell so strong that I almost throw up. I was alarmed but I calmed my mind that it was just because of my sinusitis so I continue the cooking and just bear with the unwanted smell then I had my breakfast after.

It was one o'clock in the afternoon when my phone beeped. I got a notification saying that I need to go to the office at 4 PM. Because of that, I took a bath so I can still relax after and will just wait for 4 PM. The water was so refreshing that it took me half an hour to finish my bath. But during the bath, I noticed that the scent of my shampoo and hair conditioner changed unlike the usual. I just didn't think much about it and blame my sinusitis AGAIN.

I dressed up and started the daily routine for my face. I poured drops of micellar to the cotton and applied it all over my face. The scent of the micellar wasn't the same as it was too. Next, I put some cream and lipstick on. Lastly, I comb my hair and realized that my hair was so dry. Almost everything has changed.

Never mind again.

I went to work because it was almost 4 PM. One of my workmates was at the front door having her snacks. She greeted me with a smile and said something that made me stopped from heading to my work station. She told me I gained weight and my hips became broader. Well, I ate a lot these days so it's not that surprising. I just told her that my boyfriend is taking care of me well and would always surprise me with food which is true. I didn't care of it much because people around me told me that being chubby suits me well.

5 days have passed and I felt that my lower abdomen and hips are aching. This is the common sign when I am almost in my menstruation period. But, I just had my period 2 weeks ago. This is just too early. I tried to remember the exact date of my period but I cannot remember. It was every morning and night that my abdomen aches. Some of the episodes are unbearable so I took pain relievers and applied numbing cream. I admit I was used to abdomen cramps/pains because this is what I felt before and during my menstruation period but this was way too much.

Never mind anyway for I was so sure that time that it was all because of my incoming period. For that reason, I ignored everything. There was also a day when my sense of taste changed but not because of covid, okay? I didn't know why but the taste of the foods are not the same as they were before even the aftertaste of colas.

My lips were always dull and dry as well even if I put lipstick and lipgloss. My favorite perfume became the scent I hated the most so I gave it to my mom even if I just bought it a week ago.

I told my boardmates about how I was feeling but they just told me that I should sleep early and avoid going out after our 10 PM shift which I didn't do anyway. Lol. Perhaps these were all about my unhealthy lifestyle as well because it was almost every night that I drank with friends until dawn.

I hope everything will get back soon or else I will go to the doctor for a check up.

The pain during menstrual period is always tough and painful for me. I also many times feel so sick with the pain not until I started using pain reliever.

Oh my! We have the same burden during menstruation. But I chose home remedies instead of taking pain relieving medicine

I know it's not ideal enough to keep using pain relieving medicine but I would be glad if I could just see other alternative that won't have any effect later on.
