For as long as I can remember I haven’t had issues with my health except for the bi-monthly malaria which is an norm here in Nigeria. I haven’t had any serious illness. Dysentry has been the height of it all. Sometimes I wonder what kind of immunity I have. I’ve never had measles , chicken pox and all those deadly diseases we were warned against in Biology class. Well, I think I’m just blessed with divine health. That’s the only explanation because I can’t remember the last time I was admitted into a hospital. I’ve only had one major accident which happened in 1998 and ever since then..nada!
Lately my cravings has been on a hike! Coke has suddenly become kyptonite to me except on those very rare occasions. Now it’s yogurt. Hollandia Strawberry Yogurt precisely. I have no idea where that came from. I used to dislike yogurt a lot.. Now I need to take at least one pack a day even when I’m dead broke. I reserve a particular amount somewhere and I can’t take more than a particular quantity at a time or else I’d throw up! Other times it’s Viju Chocolate. Sigh.
I’ve also been skipping dinner a lot. Like I’m not just hungry. Some times I just sleep on an empty stomach if I’m too lazy to get yogurt. Need I forget my cookies consumption. it’s incredible. I don’t understand. Really. This things used to irritate me. PMS maybe? No? Sigh. I’m so happy, cake is not in close proximity to my house. I wonder what would have happened.
I’m really trying to understand these changes going on in my body. Spicy foods are still a no-no. Infact it has almost become an issue in my house. Sometimes when I cook to my taste with very little amount of spices, there’s a clash. Some people want this, others want that and it’s crazy. It sort of makes me feel like an old woman. LOL.
Anyways I’m grateful for good health even when it looks serious, it’s barely serious. As for my cravings, it will pass. Infact it needs to pass, FAST! How can someone just crave foods with raisins or milk and not desire good food. Smh.
Always and Forever.
