.till sickness comes
“If you can’t go back to your mother’s womb, you’d better learn to be a good fighter.” ― Anchee Min, Red Azalea
So we were down with cold on women’s day. All of us three girls. Aqilah was at 39.3 C, it seriously made me jump out of my skin. Her condition even haunted me in my dreams.
I could not remember when i last had fever. But i remember the most how it felt down with dengue. The doctor asked, “were you out too much? Eating out too much? Talk too much? Or see too many people? Attending events, maybe?”
“I’m an insurance agent, doc,” the simplest answer i could ever think of out of my limited voice.
“Oh, that explains it all,” with a crumbling smile.
Health is everything. You can’t work without proper health. Your kids won’t be fed with you not working. And you must pay the doctor for your medication. At the end of the day, money does matter. You can definitely live without money, but we are living in a world where everything comes with a price.
Get yourself covered with a health insurance, or let the hospital bill drains your savings.
