Hello, it's been a while since my latest journal, gonna give you some updates. I'm pretty much inactive lately (passive mode, just watching, faving, chatting, etc)
There are 2 things :
First is, remember my previous journal about Caravan Studio holding a series of workshops? Well the workshops have concluded, with the last session was presented by me, and at 27th April 2013. If you are interested, you can see the streaming records of all the 5 iLearn Digital Art sessions at the link below :
Second, I am troubled with this pain in the upper part of my chest. Went to a clinic in early April, had my blood checked and BAM. It turns out that my cholesterol level skyrocketted it started to disturb both my liver and my heart. I do admit that I kinda lived a very unhealthy lifestyle, it is such an irony because my final thesis was about Diabetes (lol). So I started to control my diet and intensify my excercises. Took some medications too and yeah, managed to lose 6kg in a month.
However the pain still presents, earlier this May I was going home from work. My dad went to pick me up but is trapped in a traffic accident so he couldn't reach my office, he took a turn and parked somewhere else and then told me to walk to there. It was only around 500-600 meters from my office, but when I finally reached the car, there was this... like the heart's jumping all over my chest several times. I seriously thought I was having a heart attack, coughed several times.
Went to the hospital (not a clinic anymore) at the next day, and then got diagnosed of hypertension... too... (dang, that's a lot of complication). Although the doctor didn't mention about it, I know that this usually leads to either Coronary Artery Disease or Angina Pectoris so I have to be more careful. Got my blood checked at the hospital and fortunately the cholesterol level has improved.
That's one hell of an experience, and right now the pain still occurs sometimes but I try not to think about it and maintain a positive mindset. The whole experience reminds me of a saying that "God won't give you what you want, God will give you what you need". And the whole time I was praying to God, asking for a healthier life. It almost seems like God itself knows that I don't need a healthy life, instead I need a motivation to get a healthier life.
For anyone who reads this journal, is there any of you who had experienced a similar problem? Or have a relative with similar problem?
I would like to hear your story, and hopefully get some good advices. Since I keep wondering why my doctor forbids me to take a daily dose of Omega 3 supplement, saying that it won't matter at all.
