For many years now I’ve been getting by on 4-5 hours of sleep but for the past couple of months I’ve been stressing out and just slept a couple of hours at a time… my body temperature has been fluctuating since a couple of days ago but I wasn’t too bothered by it cos it hasn’t been fckng up my days or productivity at work. Yesterday after a pleasant trek through a couple of hilly trails though… my blood pressure dropped to 70/50 and by noon I came down with a high fever and started vomiting – so much that my throat started bleeding. I had no energy left so my brother carted me off to our family doctor, who suspected that I contracted some sort of virus and that I’ve not rested enough. Haha this one really stung cos my head’s heavy, I’m dehydrated and I can’t keep my solids down so now I’m only eating bland rice porridge ugh. The temptation is strong for a vegan burger or pizza but it’ll be such a waste cos I’m gonna throw up afterwards!
I hate to admit it but I am one of those people with super-person complex, playing multiple roles and have unrealistic expectations haha. I oughta learn to trust others and delegate work and responsibilities so I can chill a little.
It’s really clichéd, but it’s worth noting that we all gotta acknowledge the fact that it’s much much much healthier to live a balanced life, where we can kick back and take good care of ourselves, than to push our limits till we cannot give anymore.
Hope you’re having a lovely day!
