This Too Shall Pass

My mother came home with the result plus a bunch of medicines. Whoa, God answered my prayers. After going to 4 different specialists/internists, I will finally know the cause of my pain. I was very eager to see my diagnosis. Sadly, it was already a Stage 2, Advanced Moderate case. I was shocked but managed not to cry. It was all I ever wanted, clear findings of why I felt so sick.

I still reported to work that night to submit my medical recommendation. I also filed a 3 month Medical Leave. Oh yes, 3 months! Sudden stop of everything I used to do. Before I leave, I met my closest friend. Upon seeing him my tears burst out of my eyes. He hugged me and that time I admit I was so scared and depressed. Sigh.

For the first week of my 3-month Medical Leave, I felt so left out. I felt like my world suddenly stopped. While everybody's having their normal day in office or school, there I was alone in our house. But because I already felt so weak that time, I cant do anything but to rest and take those 8 capsules everyday.

Exactly a year has passed and after 1120++ capsules, Im OK again! Rejoice! Thanks to my supportive parents, my ate who welcomed me in her home, Enrico who brought me to Disneyland, and to Michael Scofield of Prison Break, which made our family bonding a very exciting one. Medical Leaves are fun after all!

It's nice to believe that nothing is really permanent specially sufferings.
And true enough, THIS TOO SHALL PASS.

Now it's time to party! Sana matupad ang pangarap kong celebration before the month ends.
