Am going through a rough patch right now. Well, to be precise, an itchy patch.
Developed eczema around my hands due to the use of essential oils. Few days later, an unknown and very itchy rash came all across my body. Will talk about it more after I see the skin doctor tomorrow morning and confirm its cause. Today, I want to talk about my Hubby.
I have a wonderful Hubby. He is a great strength of support, a good lover and the bestest friend I can ever have in this world.
I have so many minor but irritating health issues like eczema and acid reflux, have to spent so much on seeing specialists and doctors. When I was pregnant, I was hospitalised twice before the actual delivery due to unforeseen circumstances. Two weeks after my delivery, I was hospitalised again due to some unknown bacteria infection.
Throughout all these while, never once did Hubby complain that I was very troublesome, or mentioned about me spending too much money on seeing doctors. He has always been supportive whenever I tell him my plans to “solve my health issues”. I really feel very touched and grateful.
I was from the kind of family where parents don’t encourage us to see doctors. They think it’s a waste of money. They don’t think anything is so serious to warrant the need to see the doctor. I only started to see doctors whenever I am sick after I started working and pay for my own medical fees.
I remembered vividly that time when my acid reflux was at its worst. I couldn’t breathe and feel pain every breath taken in. I thought I was going to die. Nobody think it is serious enough to see the doctor. I had to beg my parents who were working to come back to take me to the doctor. Ever since, if I feel so bad that I can’t manage to the doctor myself, I will let Hubby know. He will rush to my then Ang Mo Kio house and bring me to the doctor.
Having said that, I guess it doesn’t mean my parents don’t care about us. It’s just that money has a greater importance to them. This sort of affected my perception towards money and wealth. Sure, we all love money, who doesn’t? But there are more important things than money in life. And if you are so blinded by money, you lost those other important things that you will never get them back as time passes you by.
Anyway, this time the rash issue is bothering so much I can’t sleep at night. Told Hubby I wanted to go to National Skin Centre to figure out what exactly is this rash. He supported me with no hesitation. No questions asked. He even took leave so that he can come with me and take care of little man while I see the doctor.
What can I say? I think Hubby is one of the bestest thing that ever happen to me. And I love him for all that he is willing to sacrifice for me.
