Herpes Zoster.


I stood at the veranda,facing to the sea where you disappeared to, and closed my eyes
I felt a light brush upon my cheek, full of love. I dare not open my eyes, because i knew i would see nothing. That was the closest i could get to you. They may think I'm losing my mind, but it's okay, as long as I'm not losing you. Though you are long lost, you're still with me. Maybe I'll join you in the sea. Just like the way it took you, it'll do to me. Together we'll dissolve to be history. Is that a death wish? I planned my life with you. It's a decision to sacrifice either one. You only come to me in the form of wind. No body, just soul. But your touch doesn't feel less than what it was before. And i still remember your face, your voice. Darling, i remember everything about you, and i will never forget. Every night, you'll find me on the veranda, inhaling the salty air, facing the wide sea, waiting for you to come to me.



 That was from last night. I don't know. My mind was envisioning a woman, standing on a verandah facing the sea, overlooking the shore, shining due to the reflection of the light from the full moon. Her loved one got lost at sea, at every night she'll stand there, waiting to be reunited.

Enough of that. 
Assalamualaikum w.b.t :)
I am at home, which was something I didn't expect actually. I wasn't allowed to go home this weekend because I have an innovation workshop tomorrow, but I got a doctor's excuse. I was looking forward for the workshop :(

The left side of my neck burns really bad right now. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and got diagnosed with Herpes Zoster. Went home that evening. Missed school yesterday, which just happens to be the day of my Biology and Chemistry paper. -___- I don't know if I have to take the exam when I get back. I'm just worried it'll affect my result-based position in the form. Meh.

So basically Herpes Zoster a.k.a the Shingles is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001861/)

In a nutshell, it's attacking my nerves and it hurts really really bad. I was prescribed with 3 pills, vitamin, an anti-virus and of course a painkiller. I also have to clean the rash regularly with refrigerated Sodium Chloride.

I can't turn my head the the left at the moment, nor can I make any sudden movements. It's like one wrong turn and I'll rip my skin open. Sorry for the graphic description (not really), but yeah. I knew that part of my neck was rather red, but I thought it was just my eczema acting up. I decided to go to the doctor after it was swollen. 

On the other hand, there's a scar on my left cheek due to a Charley bite. Basically an insect crawled up my face while I was sleeping and secreted some kind of liquid that causes this. Luckily, it isn't that bad, and my face isn't swollen like the previous victim in my hostel. It's disappearing little by little. 

I guess that's it. I just need to be patient with the healing process and be careful with my neck. I can't even sleep on my right side without feeling like stretching the skin open. Oh well, at least I'm still getting sleep.It's a little painful, but it's not deadly. It'll get better, I hope.

I'm sorry I don't have better things to update about. p/s: this is my 100th post. That just makes it more pathetic. heh.

Ciao, Assalamualaikum.
