Health is precious
Dear sisters ... thank you for your kind concerns. I'd tried to drop a few words so many times but my condition has prevented me from doing so. Today, I am supposed to watch Untold Scandal on the big screen with some Bae sisters, but of course I have to give up the chance of seeing Won-nim, sob sob :(
I drag going to a doctor unless I am really really sick and I think this time my condition warrants a visit. I went down to the usual old doctor in my residence with no makeup, no nail polish, hair loosely tied; looking appropriately like a sick patient. As the nurse ushered me into the doctor's office, WOW! you mean my 'doctor on duty' is this movie-star handsome man?! While I complain there's no good looking men in Japan, but understandably my biased eyes are already blocked by HRH and nobody can measure up :) But this handsome doctor in front of me has the perfect features of Kimura Takuya (木村拓哉) and the elegance and sensibility of Fukuyama Masaharu (福山雅治) @@!
Sigh, but I was really in no mood to admire a handsome guy at that moment. My head was spinning like a 'Spiral Octopus' ride and pounding like a Taiko Drum. I expressed to my sensei that I worried I might have suffered from a mild stroke last week and he comforted me saying, "I am a neurosurgeon, maybe I can do a few checks for you now?" OK, that's it, I'm sold! A Fukuyama/Kimura blend, a neurosurgeon and speaks English!! Hehe, I think I got my compensation back for not being able to see Yonsama in Untold Scandal today :)
He proceeded to ask me to follow him in performing a few basic motor skills with my arms, hands and eyes co-ordination. I followed clumsily not only because I felt conscious of my 'awful' appearance, it's also because I really have a problem responding promptly now. Then he asked me to look into his eyes to check my eyes' movements, um hm .... with a pair of eyes so intelligent and sincere, I felt I was in good hands already. The good news is he does not think I had a stroke, he diagnosed it as Ear Imbalance. No no, he's not saying I have one ear bigger than the other, it's the hormonal imbalance.
It'll be a slow and gradual treatment and I still feel very weak and painful every day. To be honest, I am a bit sad and scared, with my already-not-very-brilliant mind, I was already pushing my own limit to learn the Japanese language, culture and everything new. Now with my thought process and motor skills being slower, what if I cannot write anymore? I still want to learn, draw and write so much, never in a million years that I thought this could happen to me! As my doctor told me, this takes time and I will have to be patient. Well, I laughed when my husband joked with me about the handsome doctor saying, "looks like you'll be sick a lot more often now" but deep down in my heart, I really rather not see him again :)
Hehe, no post is complete without our super gorgeous prince of course. These are the Faceshop postcard pictures. I am sure most of us feel our Yonsama looks a bit too beautiful in these shots. Wonder what he himself thinks?? Please take care :)
