It has been a while since I updated my blog, hasn’t it? That’s because I got back to work (finally) after 6 weeks of Medical Leave. The 6 weeks flew by quite fast though. Didn’t notice that I was away for so long until I filled up my MC form.
Anyway, getting back to work makes my days pass even faster. I wake up at 5am for qi gong at 5.30am. I’d be home at 7am and need to leave for work ASAP. I’d try to leave work at 5.30pm so that I can be home for dinner at 6.30pm but I never made it in time. I’d normally be home at about 8pm and my bedtime is supposed to be at 9pm.
So yeah. No time for anything. My day feels so short.
Thankfully, my colleagues have been very accommodating so I’m learning to not carry the burden of work stress.
Besides the fact that I’ve lost touch of work progress and that I can’t work as much as before, everything else seems familiar. In fact, many colleagues have commented that I look just like before, except I lost a few kgs from my already skinny body. I feel the same. Only my medical report doesn’t agree.
I feel work is not tiring actually. It’s the travel that drains my energy; 1.5 hour of drive one-way. I have forgotten how I managed the drive that long everyday before Big C.
I’m off work again as I’m writing this from the hospital bed of University Malaya Specialist Center (UMSC); only went back to work for 1.5 week. I’m currently admitted to surgically implant a chemo port and for my first chemotherapy treatment. Will write more on this.
I’d be back to work on Monday and that’s gonna be my new routine for the next 6 months: off work from Wed to Fri for chemotherapy every fortnight.
Let’s hope I’m healthy enough to carry out my duties even during chemotherapy. I may even work from home during chemotherapy if I feel totally normal!
Thank you all for the love and support!
