Friday night was a long night for me. Sigh. I was tossing and turning on my bed all night long trying to get a correct position to rest my hand but to no avail. I got up and went out my room to check on my computer in the middle of the night. I even tried playing Spider Solitaire using my left hand. I also went down to the dining hall and played with Conan for a while until I was tired and went up to bed again. A restless night. Sigh. The pain still didn't go away :(
Early morning I received a call from my colleague asking me have I arrived at the meeting place for the hiking. I guessed she missed out my text msg informing her that I couldn't make it due to the injury. Not only the hiking trip I missed but also an invitation to jog at Botanical Garden on Saturday morning by Eugene Ung the Penang blogger. Initially I told him I could not meet him for a jog because was going for the hiking trip, and in the end I missed two important activities just on a Saturday morning. What a disappointment dey......
Dad brought me to see doctor at a panel clinic. After a checking on my wrist, he told me that nothing is broken and no fracture occurred, and what I got was a pain killer medicine and a self-heating lotion.
|my swelling wrist :"(|
For the moment I am still depending on the pain killer and I hope the condition will improved by Monday. Well, at least with the pain killer i'm taking three times a day, I could still type on the keyboard and posted up this blog today. Anyway, the pain came back again on Saturday night when I delayed on taking the pain killer. But after taking two pills of painkiller (1 from the doctor, 1 panadol), the pain was relieved and I could sleep for the night. My church member suggested that I should go and see a sin seih (Chinese traditional practitioner) for faster result. I'm afraid to do so because the massage therapy surely will be painful. Moreover, based on the experiences shared by friends and family members, not all massage therapy are effective for everyone. Some case the injury got worse after seeking Chinese doctor for massage therapy.
This weekend was not really a good weekend for me.
These are the things I failed to do for the weekend due to my injury:
1. Penang Hill hiking trip
2. Jogging with Eugene the Penang blogger (supposed to be 1st meet up)
3. Play piano for Sunday worship :(
4. Meet up with Eugene and his family on Sunday after church (i had to turn down his invitation for the 2nd time again this week)
But hey, life is not that bad after all. I still have my left hand functioning well! Thank God for that. I stopped dwelling in self pity when I realized that there are many unfortunate ones out there struggling with life when they have only 1 arm / 1 foot left to continue living for the rest of their lives. How can I complain when I only have this temporary disability due to injury? Shame on me...
I pray that I would be able to carry out my daily job on my computer as I return to work tomorrow.
Have a good week ahead peeps.
