..received a call from the clinic informing me that my blood test result is out and I am required to drop by at the clinic for further consultation with the doctor. Due to some errands to settle on that day, I end up went to the clinic during the weekend instead.
On my way to the clinic, I was attacked with nerves trauma. Cold sweats on my palm. My heart was pounding really fast and at times, I felt suffocated (maka cermin keta terbukak trang tang tang). There were zillions of various sizes of negativity clouds lingering above my head should the outcome doesn’t favor me to live longer (sapa suruh sik gago jaga kesihatan dirik mpun). Deep inside, I still wanna live longer. I feel I’ve so much to give, share and most of all, to spend my entire life with my loved ones.
Once reached the clinic, went straight into the doctor’s office. It was pretty tense moment when the doctor informed me that she has good and bad news to convey and I have to say she’s very good in diverting and calming my mind by feeding me with the good news first. Overall, in most areas, my blood report shows that I am in a good health condition and the doctor herself is amazed with my strong body immune system.
Then came the bad news. It is found that I have high level of cholesterol! My mind went blank (nasib sik leput depan nya), couldn’t think of what to say next. The doctor told me that I have to be on medication and I was shocked to see the nurse brought me 4 different types of medicines.
I went silence for awhile then after gathered my inner guts, I slowly breaked the silence.
Me: “Does this mean, once I’m on this medication, I’ll be on it for my entire life?”
Me: “Are there any other option apart from being dependent on these medicines?”
Doctor: “Yes, take more fruits, veges and exercise more.”
Doctor: “OK, here’s the deal. I’ll give you 3 months on a strict diet program and for that you need to take this supplement with it. After 3 months, come back for another round of blood test and if it still persist, you’ll be on medication”.
Me: “OK!” (deep inside, I was screaming silently, couldn’t accept the fact of having high cholesterol level)
So, there you have it. Never would I thought that I’ll be joining the ‘High Cholesterol Club’ (terkenangkan golongan warga emas yang ari2 mok makan ubat, adakah aku akan macam sidak ya kelak) and will be on oat supplement from now onward (sik suka oat, kmk suka nestum). Anyhoo, for the sake of living longer, I’ve set a goal for myself that is to lead a healthy life style (paksa lah kurang makan kat luar dah) coz it’s still not too late yet.
Wish me luck.
Till my next post!
