First Time this Year
For the first time this year, I think I’m finally coming down with a sickness.
The last time I feel critically ill was sometime around last year or last two years (can’t really remember). The illness had been so terrible that I probably thought I was going to die. I had been so ill that I couldn’t even get up to go take a piss at my bathroom, I had to be carried everywhere.
If you’re from Nigeria, then you probably know that nothing will make a Nigerian person go to an hospital for treatment unless we were literally seeing the grim reaper face to face. So I had remained at home taking malaria drugs because over here it’s either malaria or malaria, there’s no other type of sickness over here.
After about a week of it not getting better, I finally decided to go see a trained nurse who placed me on drip and also gave me some injections before I finally got back on my feet. After that experience, I vowed never to fall that sick again. I made sure to take drugs at the slightest sign of a symptom even though the only thing I hated more than my ex was drugs, Lol.
Well today I woke up feeling a slight headache. I had thought it was nothing and was going to disappear before noon today but it’s currently past 10pm and I still feel it. And this is a problem because this is usually how it starts, a slight headache then I start feeling weak and the next thing I know, I no longer have an appetite to eat.
I really don’t want to take any drugs because I’m tired and I really hate drugs. I pray I will be fine when I wake up in the morning or I might end up forcing myself to go get drugs.
First time this year and it sucks.
