I got or was sick on the way to Baguio, Monday, last week. Because this required an emergency check-up, went to Notre Dame to see a doctor. I was expecting a quick one - lab test, check-up, meds and off I'll go.
But it was not meant to be. That Monday, I was led to a woman-doctor who cared enough to get my family history; at one point in our conversation, I had to look the other way to control myself. I nearly cried detailing my family's medical history, the stress in my life, my life as a single parent. I thought the check-up would be a flash. But I was in for more tests on the Wednesday. In the afternoon, in hand were two prescription pads for 'natural' meds. No antibiotics for now. A medical doctor who believes in natural remedies like water therapy and plant-based meds. I wanted to go back to her.
So now, I have reason to be in Baguio, from time to time. And perhaps scout for a house.
