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.
