The song “Joy to the World” seemed to be out of place as I heard it being played on the bus where I was at, on my way home, a week ago. Or at least that was what I thought. With the start of the “ber” months, Christmas songs are already heard almost everywhere. So much has happened to me I was never able to keep track of time.
It started on the last week of June, I was getting jittery and really excited for the first ever case hearing I was supposed to attend. I was sort of helping on working on some evidences (reconciliations to prove some malversation of funds case). But just a few days before the big day, I had these attacks again coupled with muscle spasms, I looked like somebody with a cerebral palsy. duh. The week after, I had to be brought to the nearest hospital with our company car as the makeshift ambulance. I looked like I was having a seizure and my officemates were very much alarmed. I underwent lots of laboratory tests but the CT scan had to be cancelled. I knew why, we really couldn’t afford it. The diagnosis for the muscle spasms- hypocalcemia. Cool!, thank God it wasn’t some sort of a brain disease. I felt crazy because 3 doctors had to see me, an internist, an endocrinologist, and a neurologist. My bills would have gone up if had they included a cardiologist.
But I’m pretty much okay now, my calcium has already went up to the normal levels. Life though is still a constant struggle- like when you’re on an overcrowded bus on a rush hour trying hard to breath. And I I’m still working on gaining those pounds I lost.
Oh, off to a tangent, I watched the movie Mamma Mia. Entertaining, beautiful setting, good cast (Meryl Streep still stands out), lovely music. The songs of ABBA surprisingly fit in with the situations they were sang at. But I never realize how sad the song The Winner Takes It All could be, I guess the part where Meryl Streep sang it was one of the highlights of the movie. Another unforgettable part was the mother and daughter duet of Slipping Through My Fingers.
