"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Health concerns......

Winter has come back with a vengeance. The price we pay for having the kind of summer that we did. It’s freezing. Although I was eagerly awaiting winter (hot seasons aren’t my favourites as I can’t take the heat contradictory because I’m African….oh well) I have to say so far it hasn’t been productive. Mainly because I cant breathe because the cold inflames my nasal canal and because of these persistent headaches I have been having.

I went to see my physician on Tuesday and discussed my headaches with her. She asked me if I have been under some stress recently or if I’m drinking enough water and if I wear my spectacles as is should. My answer was simple…I am not under any extra stress apart from day to day grind and I am also drinking at least two litres of water a day. The only other thing is I don’t wear my specs as often but that has never been a problem.
My physician was actually very concerned about my headaches and ordered for me to have a blood test which would test for my fasting glucose level, a full blood count, thyroid, blood sodium levels and cholesterol level.

Friday I had my blood test and I will get my results on Wednesday. It takes ten to fourteen days to get the results usually but I have been given priority. I also I have to book an appointment with my optician to rule out the likelihood of strain caused from my bad eyesight. Till then I don’t have much to do except swallow painkillers. I have to take this migraine pill and standard painkillers all at the same time (to say that I’m not worried would be an understatement but I’m taking it in my stride…I just pray that whatever it is that is wrong with me Allah grants me the patience to deal with it). My main concern is getting addicted to the painkillers because between Tuesday evening and Friday morning I have finished a 16pack coupled with half a strip of migraine pills (and I’m not the type of person fond of taking medicine be it pill or a syrup).

So yeah, I am walking around in a zombie state and why I’m I going to work? I need some normalcy in my life and if I stay at home I focus more on the pain. Plus the people at work are currently taking it easy on me…bless them. But inshaAllah kheyr…whatever it is Ar-Rahman would get me through it inshaAllah. Bi’ithnillah.
Come Wednesday I will find out what is wrong inshaAllah. Till then keep me in your dua.
