No Junk Foods To This House, Ever Again!

When I fetched Faith last week on Wednesday from Kumon, she complained right away that her tooth was so painful. I let her drink some water to lessen the pain; she slept on our way home. Even though she said the pain was a bit gone when we went down from the Jeepney I still bought her Paracetamol. Her fever was going up and down at times. On Friday, she had then a runny nose, we went to her Pedia on Saturday, her doctor prescribed us the Alnix for runny nose and Asmalin for the cough, the doctor we still need to continue until it’s gone. The next day her fever went up but it went down on Monday. We though she already recovered so we bathe her but after her bathe, her fever strikes again. I was so worried that it might be something else, we went back to her Pedia on Tuesday then we found out that she have a UTI infection.

Since she already has the right medicine after she took her antibiotic, her fever was gone. I recalled that I bought lots of junk foods before the fiesta and I thought it was the culprit. The same thing happened when she was 3 years old when I bought some junk foods on New Year and days later she had a fever, the same infection. So no junk foods ever for this house again!

I Think I Am Having An Asthma

It started last Sunday when I tried to cut the weeds in the yard, from then on I oftentimes coughed. But as I really want to do the normal process, I did not buy medicines right away instead I bought some herbal juice but my cough got worsen. So today I decided to just buy medicines for dry cough, I know I am feeling like this is already an asthma but as of now we really don’t have extra, the money that my husband sent today is intended for bills, grocery and our allowance daily so going to the Pulmonologist is not an option. And on Friday will be intended for Faith’s dentist, she really needs to have her broken tooth extracted, she said that there is a new tooth coming out.

I went to the pharmacy and asked them what capsule should I take, they recommended me a medicine. It is a capsule and I am taking it now. I noticed it works but I am still observing it. There is no hard breathing at all, so let’s see. I also bought 2 handkerchiefs today because I was suspecting that the dusts and the vehicle exhausts contributed to my cough. I usually drive so I don’t smell the exhausts before but since it is brought to the repair shop I guess handkerchief is badly needed this time, I can now understand MJ and Mariel for asking me to buy 20 pieces of handkerchiefs for them to use. Now I know…

Just After I Submitted My Resignation Letter

This month just after I submitted my resignation letter, I got so sick.

I was running late one night, my head was already heavy and it got worse when I sat down in my station taking calls. After an hour of taking calls, I asked for a clinic break, I really need something to take for my headache. When I went to the clinic, the checked my BP right away, only then I realized my BP went to 160 over 90, they asked me to rest right away, they could not give me any medicine because they need to monitor my BP every after 30 minutes. They let me sleep for an hour. My BP subsides after I rest.

After a week when I got back to work again, I was not feeling well all so sudden. I took a nap for almost an hour during my lunch, when I got out from work, I felt like I had a fever. They sent me to emergency room in one of the hospitals in downtown my BP reaches to 164/60. It is not normal at all but by that time the fever went up too.

After 3 days of not going to work. I went for a cholesterol check up, my cholesterol is normal but my liver condition is not. The SPGT is not normal, the Doctor said it can still be prevented by taking a liver protection, vitamins and I don’t know if I have to change my daily dosage or I will just add the liver vitamins. I don’t know because I didn’t buy the vitamins yet. I hope I can one of these days.

But my concern for now, I hope everything will be back to normal when I have lots of rest these coming few days. I am looking forward for it. To being healthy and strong!

Things To Know That Woman Should Know

Last week I was task to write an article regarding home remedies for period irregularities. Mind you I don’t know what those are; I need to research so I can come up with an idea. And not only that it took me almost two weeks so I can at least make two pages of home solution for menstruation irregularities. It was not easy but I am glad that I was able to check those solutions online because I learned.

They required me to write 20 home remedies but I only wrote 10. I mean, it’s hard to write when you are also too busy offline. On the other hand these are the things I found out.

Ginger

Papaya

Cinnamon 

Bitter Gourd 

Carrot 

Grapes

Mint 

Aloe Vera

Fennel 

Sesame Seeds

Butter Milk and Radish Seeds
