Hola people..I’m back. Back from Penang and back from sick leave. This year’s fasting month mmg bulan aku sakit daa..tak pepasal I have burnt 2 days of fasting bcoz of this, belum period lagi ni..adoi. Dugaan, dugaan.
Perut aku ni mmg dari kecik lagi dah mmg sensitive. Kalo tak sensitive, tadenya aku dah selamat masuk hospital for 2-3 nights at the age of 4 due to gastrisis kan? Kecik2 dah jadi mangsa gastrik ok. Aku ingat lagi aku muntah hijau time tu, takleh tido mlm, crying all the way in the car at 2am when my parents had to drive me to the nearest clinic which I immediately had to be injected kat bontot dgn doctor pastu doctor ckp kalo tade kurang gak esok kene admitted kat hospital. Wargh I still remember me being tied down to the railing at the stretcher by the nurses coz I was wailing and screaming at the top of my lung. Like elloo sakit ok! The next thing I remember when I woke up both of my hands dah dibalut, sangat kejam ok..That was the starting point for me to avoid carbonated drinks especially during raya. I think I’m like the one in a million of rakyat Malaysia yg tak suka minum Coke. Yup, tak suke. Tak suke Coke, Sarsi, Pepsi, A&W Rootbeer..sume tu la yg kaler hitam coklat tu. Even as I grow older, I would only take a sip of those drinks, kalo nak langgar pantang pon dlm sehari mungkin 2 glasses je la. Dats it. No more than dat. During my primary skool days I hardly buy anything at the school canteen as well, eventho zaman dulu 20 sen tu memcm bleh beli, tp aku jarang sgt beli. I’m always eating my packed food and drinking Ribena. Dari kecik mmg dah berpantang larang. Serik ok.
Pastu bile masuk alam university and berjauhan dgn keluarga, dah start kenal makanan yg oily and bergoreng..nasik goreng dis, nasik goreng dat.t.Makanan student la katekan huhu. Apparently, perut aku pon sensitive tang tu gak. Kalo dah overdose sket makan berminyak/pedas nanti confirm sakit perut and angin. Not gastric, but angin.
Bulan puasa ni…aih the symptoms were already showing bit by bit. The climax of it when I went back to Penang, yela niat parents tu baik they wanted me to eat as much as possible. Eat all you can punya konsep la kirenya. Masa balik aritu makan kari ikan, sambal udang, sambal telur, ayam masak kicap, kuah pecal, pasembor sumenye yang mmg mengiurkan. Betul tak? Aku dah siap amik gambo ok nak share to you guys on the lovely dishes that I had back home. Tp skang ni when I look at it, i felt like vomitting all over again. Huhu. Pastu masa bukak puasa dgn family dia dpt plak kari daging, kangkung belacan and out of the blue I wanted to drink air tebu..aih that was it la.
Dahla aku tak berak lagi ni. Yer aku ni ada masalah constipation gak. Bile aku beralih tempat, aku xleh nak berak. Hehe aku kene balik ke umah aku baru ada rasa nak berak. Kalo seminggu bercuti, seminggu tu aku bleh tak berak ko tau. Haa tah hape punya perangai ni. So imagine all the food and the oily substance and wat nots dah berkumpul dlm perut aku. The next day at work, perut dah pedih gileeeeeee. I thought it was common la – angin. Dpt membuang skali cukup la. Luckily I took halfday on Monday coz once I reached home, I vomited twice (muntah hijau ok!), passed motion I think about 4-5 times. Mmg tak larat badan aku. I was like shitt..dun say it’s gastric attack when I saw the greeny colour of my vomit huhu. And yeah – it came back. I’m now diagnosed with gastritis together with wind problem and migraine and constipation and chest pain haa pe lagi penyakit yg aku ada ni huhu.
And who is to blame? The genes. The generation of genes. Haha. Why? Because all the things I listed above, my mum too has it minus gastritis. That came from my aunts and my cousins. And the constipation problem yg bontot degil nak berak tu? It came from my grandmother. She passed it on to my mum which my mum defended herself saying that the perangai buruk subsided once she married my dad and now her bontot is so not disciplined that she can membuang whenever and wherever she likes. Haha payah jugak noo. My grandmother too said she doesn’t have that syndrome anymore due to old age. The same goes to my dad as well. This is not related but I just wanna story mory here. Dulu before he got married to my mum, his face was always full of zits. Jerawat batu ok. Tp once he got married until now..no more zits, acne and wat nots. U see the power of marriage?
So what about me? We’ll see..but till now I still have it and it sux because accumulated asid and wind – leads to indigestion – leads to stomache ache.
I am so preparing myself to be scolded by my children if they got all these disorders. Mesti dorang kate “haa tu laa ni mesti mak punya pasal” and then I would go “ehh bukan eh..nenek ko punya pasal ye”
It will be a neverending argument. And who will be enjoying the drama?
Him. Him yang perasan he is sickness free but masya allah bile kene demam sket, merengek mcm budak kecik nak susu. Guys are worst when they’re sick u know. At least kite kaum Hawa ni dgn memcm sakit yg dtg tak termasuk period pain and the excruciating labour pain masih lagi bole go through our daily routine without fail. Kan?
My tummy now is as flat as an ironing board. Suke plak aku tgk hehe.
p/s: my sincere apologies to Peah, Nik, Izyan (if u guys are reading this) coz dahla aku memula postpone bukak posa dgn korang coz I was busy running some errands to this week, pastu skali tgk kene plak gastric attack ni which obviously aku xleh nak makan Nandos dgn korang. Sedey siot. Sigh..
Apologies as well to darling besfren coz ye ye jeee plan nak bukak posa arini as well wif her at Malee Tomyam, dah siap bajet nak telur bistik la tomyam campur la ape sume tp because of this..kene cancel gak my plan. Aihhhh sori ye..gue sakit 😦
p.p.s : My gratitude for those who checked up on me via sms while I was away especially to Wan for being my sifu on how-to-handle-gastric pain. Huhuhu aku lapo wehhhh tak suke tak dpt makan mende besh2 ni.
