Medical Check ups, how often do you get one?

The weekend was fabulous as I had time to rest very well. I really needed one as my health had become a major concern to me recently.

My girlfriend, Rosemary, had her traditional wedding on Saturday ( I had planned and gotten my camera ready for full digital covering of the event but for my health).

*Rosemary is a Ghanaian. We have been friends for years now and I was looking forward to witnessing her traditional wedding if not for anything  but to have an idea of what its like.

Hmmm, my friends, I was adviced to take things easy but when you are young and agile, you think your energy level will always remain as it was when you were 18years old. Well, so off to the hospital I went on thursday to do some check up, especially as I was always feeling like fainting so very often.

Just like I had assummed, my Blood Pressure was on the rise. The nurse looked at me and asked what I have been thinking?  Inside of me, I quietly wondered what have I not been thinking?  Oh yes, you slowing drift away into that thought world of yours hwere everything gets solved just by your thinking about it.  I am only human and a single mother who wants the best for her Princess.


I made up my mind to calm down take things easy. I don't know how it started but I decided to follow all the advice my doctor gave me and take my medications too.

I missed the wedding and slept in all weekend. I did go to church though but that was all.  I value life and would want to live long enough to be there for Princess as she growns up.


I miss my little niece Monica.who was posted to her orientation camp in Makurdi will be coming back home on Tuesday ( getting home will be Wednesday ) in preparation for the one year compulsory National Youth Service (NIgeria) . She has been filling me in on a lost of gist from the Orientation camp. I have a whole book of some of these gist.

Hope you're feeling better! I try to make yearly check-ups... but it's easy to forget. Definitely focus on taking care of yourself and finding time to rest. :)
