Midnight Scare

Woke up at 140am with a sharp pain on my lower right abdomen area. I felt my whole area being pulled apart and being stabbed with. At that point, I couldn't even stand up straight. I was crouched over to the right like a spineless zombie.

I got out of bed towards the sofa and just laid down. Knees to my chest. Head in my hands. I felt cold. Tried to distract myself from the pain. Immediately informed my clients of the day that I am not well and apologized for it.

Really glad and thank goodness for S who was online. Chatted with her for a bit and she was ready to take me to the hospital immediately. But after an hour, I realised the pain had subsided and I could somewhat bear the pain. Occasionally, there was some pain at the lower back area too.

There was no more sharp pain, but an uncomfortable nagging sour pain on the right side just next to the hip bone. I stayed on the couch til 4am and finally retreated back to bed. Till 7am I was tossing and turning with that pain still nagging me.

Texted Dr Sanjay and booked 9am. Went to see him. Did the regular abdominal check etc and blood check for fear of kidney stones. I haven't been diligent in drinking enough water recently and perhaps that could be a reason of the pain. But I was more worried about having appendicitis and having to undergo keyhole surgery. That would take my training time away.

So after the check and all, I was given muscle relaxants as Dr said it was tense/tight muscles acting up.

I went back and rested.

3 things I thought about when I was lying on the sofa in pain:
1) Nothing matters at that point - not even my sessions, what my boss thinks, or whether I'll hit my target.
2) If I die today, I wish my parents and partner will be able to accept this.
3) I just want to know what is the cause of this!!!

Have you ever seen a kidney stone? Here is what it looks like:

Now that I am back home, with egg tarts for my loved ones, I need some rest. 

Mental and physical rest.

Eat, Pray, Love

"A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mate's purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master.."

 ~ Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

Would you know if you have found your soulmate?

Today, I asked someone for something randomly.
And the answer and response was positive, YES.
I was excited! A YES!!!

Unfortunately a naysayer came by,
And brushed me away.

I felt silly,
I felt small.
She made me feel like a wall.

Why did I feel that way?
How did I allow her to intrude my heart?

I wish she'd apologize.
I wish she'd just say "I'm sorry, I over-reacted".

I think I may be wrong.
I think I need to be more patient.
Let me go and sleep it off.

Good night peeps.

Reunion Dinner!

This was what we had last night! Heaps of pork and pork! 

I had just an egg, a scoop of mushrooms and some joo hu char. My indigestion the morning had set in and I was feeling very uneasy. Had to sit up straight like an 8-mth preggers and breathed like I was doing 3RM back squats. I left early and headed back to bed with many visits to the jamban. I think i used up 5 gallons of water for the flush. Lost alot of water....

I guess this is the fastest way to get lean!
