forever_wandering: (SHOCKED)
So, the day before yesterday, I'm helping Otouto look for an affordable ticket that would take him from Narita to Florida, then from Florida to New York for his conference, then Tokyo once again. After about half an hour, we manage to find him a ticket for about 130000.00 yen, and I'm feeling pretty awesome for finding what I consider to be a great deal. I used my bargain-hunting powers for good, so all day, I'll be rewarded for my good deed,  I think to myself as I change my clothes for lunch.
And it was a pretty good day. Until I reached the end of it. 

I'm on the phone listening to T-san explain the horrible sanitation at his English school. Suddenly, I get this shooting pain in my right leg. I try to ignore it and continue my conversation, but within a matter of seconds, the pain spreads and I am unable to move or bend my leg in any way without getting a rush of major pain.

I tell Ta-san I'll call him back, but I never do.

Instead, I dial my dad's number, hoping he'll have a solution. It might be a muscle cramp, or lack of potassium. "You don't eat a lot of potassium. Just keep still and it'll hopefully go away."
So I did just that. I spent the entire night laying there wide awake, trying to ignore the throbbing pain. 

You know how scary it is wanting to be able to move a limb on your body and not being able to? It's scary. 

At some point, I fell asleep. When I woke up the next day, my leg still hurt like crazy, but I was at least able to move my ankle and toes sometime after noon. 

As soon as I was able to, I dragged myself out of bed, swallowed half a bottle of pain-killers, then jumped back in to bed. The pain in my right leg faded, then suddenly began on my left calf. Even now it still hurts but I can at least walk.  

I'm still a bit loopy

It seems like I can't slowly get sick. Like, I can't get the sniffles, then get a cold. No. When I'm gonna get sick, I do it with a BAM! Like when I used to simply faint and doctors couldn't figure out why? Or those out of the blue nose bleeds? Yea. My body likes to work at random.

How annoying. 




"An ugly duckling growing out of her feathers."

Hello. I'm Zia, and this is most obviously my journal. I write about my life between Japan and the US, and all the adventures I find myself in. People often say they are envious of the life I seem to live, but the truth is, I feel a little unsatisfied with it myself, so I've decided to do something about it--to find what really makes me happy. Hopefully by documenting my life, I can figure out where I need to be heading. This journal is my way of opening my world to those around me in hopes of meeting people searching for the same thing or encountering people who have already gone through this kind of struggle. 

Back in my high school days, I used to be a bit of a nerd. I was really in to comic books of all kinds, action figures...all that jazz.  These days, though my interest in comic books re-surfaces every so often, I'm very much more in to things like fashion, dance, music, travel, tea, baking, writing letters, photography, animals and fitness. I'm a straight shooter--meaning I do not (or rather, can not?) lie. Keeping up with lies is too much trouble. 

Anyway, there is more information about me on my profile. Feel free to take a look there or catch me on another site★
