Day3: What is the greatest amount of physical pain you have ever endured?

Hello friends,

Day 3 of the 30-day Blog Challenge and I’m doing good so far. I think.

Alright!  Let’s do this!

I think the greatest amount of physical pain I’ve endured was when I was hospitalized last year.  I was diagnosed with Folliculitis. According to the PubMed Health website, Folliculitis (also known as “Hot Tub Rash”) is inflammation of one or more hair follicles. It can occur anywhere on the skin. Common symptoms include a rash, itching, and pimples or pustules near a hair follicle in the neck,groin, or genital area. To give you a clue, where I got infected, I got an Obgynecologist as a doctor. The doctor told me that I might’ve hit a gland that caused the infection. I won’t be too descriptive because it’s kind of embarassing to share if I don’t’t edit the nitty gritty stuff.

It was really painful. I can’t sit upright. I have to sleep in one position only. I can’t even walk properly. But I guess the worst part was to actually have to do number 1 in the bathroom. I have no problem doing it but of course I have to wash it after my business is a done deal. And I tell you it was not easy washing up while you have a dextrose attached. It was so painful that I wished I don’t have to go. I was able to hold it on th first day but I can’t hide how painful it was on the second day. I cried a lot.

Since there was no point of extraction, I was given pain relievers and antibiotic to stop the inflammation. Once a day, I was treated with a ‘Peri-light’ so that healing will be much faster. Well, after five days, my condition was bearable already so I was ordered to go home. FINALLY!

I guess what made me endure longer when I went through that experience is the support and love of those who took care of me. Of course to my family and friends who went all the way to visit me in the hospital and those who sent their well-wishes virtually. Knowing a lot of people actually cared about you made me think that I have to recover quickly and show the world that I’m better and stronger.

Ha! Take that pain! You can’t bring me down!

Day 2: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and describe how they became fears.

Hello friends,

So it’s Day 2 of the 30-day Blog Challenge and it’s really a challenge because I have to type this post using a detachable keypad of my tablet.  The keys are so small! Or I just have big fingers.  LOL! ;p

Alright! So let’s start!

Fears. All of us have fears.  I believe that it comes in different intensities.  I also believe that some fears are brought upon different situations that we encounter.

I will  describe my top three fears to be situational, personal, and spiritual.

SITUATIONAL.
When I was in highschool, there was a subject wherein we have to dissect frogs.  Unfortunately, seeing the anatomy of the poor amphibian was  too much for me plus it moved while my classmates were poking it.  Also, the appearance of frogs really creeps me out.  I feel like when a frog stare at someone, it will suck the consciousness out of its victim and will stick out its rubberband tongue when it has succeeded.  So, yes, I am afraid of frogs.  There was one time, a bullfrog was inside our bathroom while I was showering (There is a swamp cabbage farm teeming with snakes, frogs, and God knows what else, at the back of our house.).  I was literally shaking and screaming for my life while the frog stares non-chalant.  My father have to slam the door just to get me out.  Even my dog was trying to chase down the unwanted visitor when he caught sight of what was frightening me (or he just wants to play with it.). Attaboy Budoy!

PERSONAL
I don’t know if it’s rooted in my zodiac but one of my fears is to be unloved and unappreciated.  Of course with the awareness I gained as I mature makes it more manageable for me so I can survive in this cruel and unfair world.  I consider it as my fear because I don’t know what will be my courses of action whenever I feel that I am ignored or forgotten. I’m afraid that I might nnot handle some situations very wll and end up having negative results. 

SPIRITUAL.
This I have learned from my senior manager.  We should always be God-fearing.  We may think that we are so smart, so skilled, so high and mighty, etcetera but we should always remember that there is a higher power amongst us all.  This thought also helps me to be grounded.

So, that’s it! I am surprised that I wrote a lot.  Well, not a lot but longer than I expected it to be.

Alright!  Tomorrow is another day. Gotta catch up on ‘Rooftop Prince.’

30-Day Blog Challenge

Hello guys,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s been a long time since I last blogged.  I haven’t paid attention to my writing for a long time.  Don’t get me wrong, there are times that I wanted to fill this blog with posts but I always find myself with nothing to talk about.  I’m just poor being a conversationalist plus writer’s block and procrastination is getting the best of me.  I even have to write this post as warm-up before I come up with an article at work.

So while I was digging up inspiration in the internet, I came along with the 30-Day Blog Challenge from this site .  I guess I’m taking this challenge to stimulate my brain everyday.  I think the meat between my ears needs a little squeeze first before it goes into the blender. 

Alright! Wish me luck that I can keep up!

Lovelots,
