Thank God for the new week!
I mean it literally, it is not like I am speaking *christianese.
The previous week has been an experience. I broke down. The second time within two months- this is not normal, I seldom fall sick.
So on Wednesday, I did the last corpers wee hangout with the only remaining Akure Bae I had- Tominsin (Congratulations dear). As at then, the headache started slightly, I thought it will pass…it dint oh. I woke up the next day with it, and then it chose a parking lot – the left side of my head. It parked and started banging.
Shey when someone has headache, the next advice is for the person to have a good rest, but sleep no gree come oh. The nights were short; I woke up intermittently feeling hyper about nothing. Imagine!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday Morning… it was a hell of a migraine!
Paracetamol was ineffective, Panadol Extra gave a very minute relief… then the names of the bigger drugs began to roll in.
Me, I wasn’t ready. The ones I was taking, the taste were in my mouth; I could perceive them in my catarrh and even my saliva. I dint need a new taste. So, I just gave in.
This is Sunday evening; I can sit down and type.
The worst part of being sick for me was not having friends in Akure check on me. I got calls from far away Kaduna (My Personal Assistant, Flora), Benin (Ernest Agbonlahor), Lagos ( Tomilade), Benin ( Josiah Jighere)…
Now the excuse is that I dint inform them. I dint tell them. So make I go dey announce say “I am Sick Oh! I am Sick Oh” ( Lolz) . Anyway, maybe because one way or the other, I always look like a superman. But I dropped hints on facebook nah… (What of if, they dint have data).
However, it made me learn something; people always need people they care about around. We subconsciously expect those we think care about us to know when we are not fine. While this is not always good, I just feel we need to do more to hear from those we love. A call, ping, chat… message. Keep in touch.
Sometimes sef, I can intentionally or unintentionally show that like I don’t need you, I need you oh! Please call or chat.
What am I writing sef….? Don’t mind me, after 4 days of not been able to peacefully use your head, you will just be writing anyhow.
And Ehen, Jerry is back in my life, I will be pushing more limits now. Jordan Belonwu where are you joorh?
But for you, yes you reading this… keep in touch with those you love; people are the Joy of living.
