For the past week, I've been ill, like really ill. And its interesting because this one week holds the most important day of my life, so far, my birthday.
I've never been ill on my birthday, so you can imagine the way I felt when it looked like I was going to be ill, especially because I had planned to just enjoy myself. And then I began to feel how Turai Yar'adua must have felt when she realised her husband was ill again. She nust have been disappointed cos she must have had some serious plans for the future. And that was why like me, she pushed it under the rug. That was exactly what I did. None of my friends would have known how ill I was when we were out eating that night. That's what she did to us. We didn't know the exact situation until the night before my birthday when he was announced dead. I'm not saying I agree with what she did, I'm just saying I understand one of her motives.
Now back to my illness. I've been ill for close to a week now and nobody can figure out what's 'right' wiv me. I was at a hospital on Saturday, and after the doctor embarassed himself-asking if I was pregnant, he just prescribed a mild antimalarial for me without tests. Being in the health sector myself, I asked him to please run some tests for me. He agreed with complaints. Today, after completing the dose of the 'antimalarial', I went back with no improvement. Infact, methinks I grew worse. It was today he took me seriously, and ordered extensive checks on me. The point I'm trying to make here is did he have to wait till today before doing that? I mean, its my money, let me spend it on my health now!!! 3days of low productivity like that!!! I'm in the mood to sue someone. Whatsmore, the results can't even be ready today. Talk about inefficiency.
Anyways, what can I do but wait? In the mean time praying that I get better and that his attitude has not cost me more than just 3 days.
I have to go now, but ild be sure to update you guys later.
