When I returned from USA this time,I kind of felt different.5 locations, travelling in and out every 2nd night,with baggages, into Airports, was taking a toll,but these were Family n Friends, so there was no pressure and I felt,I can stretch myself.
On return,I again quickly decided to go to Bangalore on the Sunday, for a day,for a reason,which to many would defy logic,but I still did.On return,I had this major presentation to be made to my new MBA students starting their session in Globsyn.The talk lasted 2 hours.
On my way back,I could feel the fever.The sickness,tired ness,and the like.On return,I slept.By the time,I reached home,my fever had sky rocketed.
I was shivering.I was suddenly feeling out of control.That was 28th.July'15.
Today,9 days later,several medicines, doctors later,I write this blog,still very very weak.No fever,but the aftermath of VIRAL,still looming large on me.
On the 2nd night,my wife felt,I would have to be shifted to the Hospital, as I was not in my senses,shivering hugely,and not in control.
But somehow,I withstood that.My Doc.,was cool and instructed my wife what to do.
Sameday in the morning,I remember,I was not able to get up on my own.I thought it was a "joke",and started smiling.My wife also did not believe.But the truth was I was not able to get up.I tried,and tried,and tried.Finally,my wife,put in a lot of effort to pull me up. WoW !
I never ever felt like that before.The viral had sapped all my energies.
This viral was also a very healing experience within me.I realised so many things in one go.Yes,Yes,and Yes.I will listen to my innnerself from now on.Try and match my mind and body to some degree,so that there is a balance between these two.Only then,I can lead a decent life.
I know,it might sound "boring" to me.To someone,who has always been driven by passion,high energy,drive of the mind, without caring for the body so much,this must be a kind of let down.
But its a choice,I have to make.
To live or not to live...............................
