Never in my life I took for granted my time. I always value it, I always celebrate it as far as I remember. In fact even my gender as a female, I super love it.
So now, the thing is… two weeks ago, I thought I was having a stiff neck. I even told my officemate that it was irritating and she told me to have it massage and ty to relax and have some rest. I did what she said, but few days later… given our weather is uber-cold right now, having colds is something petty to me! So, aching neck, ears and endless runny nose (boo hoo)… blah blah
Then one morning, I woke up having a crazy pain on the right side of my ears. I thought all I need is to have a ear candling whihc I usually do twice a year in trusted spa. Nothing happened, the pain was still there so my husband rushed me to E.R last Sunday at MCU. The ENT Doctor told that there was an infection inside my ears, both due to colds. So blah-blah, come Wednesday, I can’t stand it anymore. I asked permission to my boss to go home early and see a neuro-doctor and ENT specialist.
We went to Capitol Medical and the Doctor said, there’s nothing wrong in my ears and nose… She said I have neauralgia based to physical test she did. I was not so ready to take it, and asked her if she is sooo sure. She looked at me and said, it is but no need to worry because it can be cure through oral medicine. I also went for another specialist to have a second opinion and based on physical examination, it was still Neuralgia. The pain was so crazy, the inflammation and all… All I ever wanted to do is sleep on it. My husband was so supportive. He always massage my head and entire body for almost a week now.
Even my nerves inside my mouth is affected, that’s why I am now wearing plastic support ( I don’t now what’s that 🙂 in the entire upper set of my teeth since I am experiencing sorta-lockjaw, this will be good for a month. The doctor also told me to change my lifestyle, more exercise and stop eating fry foods and fatty since it might trigger neuralgia. It’s a sickness that comes and goes worst than migraine and vertigo. My eyesight suddenly changed too, now I am wearing eye glasses with grade, something like that. Gah 😦 I want to get well so I am obeying everything… I am not done yet with my adventures in life and in fact I am enjoying everything.
When I was diagnosed with Neauralgia, I did not stop working even I feel so bad. I moved on with my normal happy life since the my Doctor did not say I need a bed rest 🙂
I love my nine to five, I may be a workaholic lady, well, this is my life and I pretty much “got it”. I’ve always been a sucker for busy life. I beam in satisfaction with ticked-off list of to-dos. I am lucky to have great mentors whenit comes to career and again I am so inpired with my fairy god mudra (Jojo) andhis friend Ms. Peachie. However, behind tough-girl workaholics like myself, there still exists a princess not wanting to work as hard as Cinderella but I guess that will be the day when I am already a mother. ANYWAY, back to topic.
So, how did I stay strong for this illness that has cure? I did it with “Sofie’s way” LOL 🙂
I shop, each day. (Do this if you have your own money to burn, don’t disturb your hubs. It’s a no-no)
I love COACH! in fact I have a thing with saignature bags, I splurge on it and feels so good because it came from my hard earned moolah 🙂
I bought this lovely brand new Coach bag to my officemate who is a Manager that also loves bags. She’s been travelling around the world and gawd her stuff is sooo good, so orgasmic! LOL
I just don’t trust the goodies that is sold in Greenhills even they say it’s authentic one. I’d rather buy from someone that I really know that won’t trick me. Bakit ba kasi wala pang Coach store sa aten? 🙂
Also I bought this cute pink wallet from…
I bought all of this in a week just to avoid feeling sad with disturbing pain caused by Neuralgia.
In some days, of course I can’t shop super nice things everyday… so I just buy this
I needed a good moisturizer under my eyes so that my corrector will not go cakey, and it helps =) I blend it with my Belo sunscreen before applying Revlon ColorStay base make-up then corrector. I love the feel that I am sorta doing an art on my face instead on a canvass! haha, you gotta love make-up brushes.
I also bought E.L.F Eye Primer & Liner Sealer
Naubusan ako ng primer from Urban Decay and I don’t know where I can buy it here since I only ask friends to buy it fro me abroad. I hope this thing helps since my favorite make-up guru from youtube (xteener) use this thing 🙂
Lastly, yesterday I bought my beauty bible!
I love buying present issue and back as well 🙂 it makes me feel girly-girl. Pictures pa lang panalo na…
So, there you go… that’s how I deal with things when I feel sad. simple things in life 🙂
But, talking to my bes (sarah alconcel), sister michelle and hubs helped me to stay more stronger. My bes, never fail to cheer me uo even its on twitter or wherever. All of ’em makes me feel loved so as well my twitter clan 🙂 #mgateh
I also have my quiet times, where I talked to God… everyday, every night.
Before I forgot, my Director in office, Ms. Bayen Elero also sent an e-mail in our team that really inspired me. It was a speech and I will post it here some other time. It was good timing tho’ because that day i feel so down and as human beings we are allowed to feel that in some unforgiving times.
