it must have been the food i ate. it must be days of lipas-gutom.
whatever it is, i spent the whole afternoon yesterday throwing up. i must have vomited around 15 times and i was really feeling weak. i kept coming back to the cr, my head was spinning, and i felt like collapsing already.
my mother and lola were giving me all sorts of stuff. pinainom na ko ng kape, which i threw up also. then, simeco, loperamide, at kung anu-ano pa. sabi pa ng lola ko, uminom daw ako ng apdo ng sawa (python's spleen). what the?
sa loob-loob ko, hindi po ako guinea pig so i asked them to call my tita who's a doctor. the medicines she gave me did make me feel better until night fell.
dumating naman isang kamag-anak namin. pinahilot ako. ang gamit: herbal oil na may halong tuba-tuba leaves and bark. it smells really bad, not to mention nakakastain siya sa damit. but what can i do? kelangan daw lumabas ang lamig sa katawan...
pero ganun din, i threw up 3 more times kinagabihan. but i did feel better, kahit nanghihina pa rin.
joke nga ng uncle kong priest, gusto ko na ba daw magpa sta. lana (anointing of the sick). sabi ko, grabe naman, mabubuhay pa ko no. sabi niya, para naman daw yun sa may sakit and not necessarily for the dying.
so i'm here, stuck sa bahay. i'm supposed to have lunch with the organizers of a lecture i'm part of set to start today. but i have to beg off. rest muna baka mapano pa.
