I didnt even have time to lament Why today? as I seemed an uncontrollable cold sweat running over my body. With fright, I noticed I had no EVE( my usual ache aid drug) close at hand.
Ever since I was 13 years old, Ive had a pro boxer living in my uterus. He likes to come for his once-a-month practice sessions only at the most inconvenient of days. I cant help but seem reluctance in writing about this sort of delicate topic. I seem embarrassment, too. So, Ill refer to this boxer as Sam.
When That Day goes, Sam fires off forceful punches right into my uterus. While withstanding ache so intense I want to cry out, I essentially crawl my behavior over to my drug, take it, and wait intently for Sams practice session to calm down.
I havent shared the ache of Sams punches with anyone except for those I am very close to. Sams fists are so strong, Ive had to take off work a number of days. Ive had to turn down summons from people I care deeply for, had to hurry to the school infirmary in the middle of tests, and had to give up on attending looked-forward-to concerts. Ive had myself examined to see why the ache is so bad, but they found nothing wrong with me.
On the day in question, I took the morning off and then headed to work with my face still white as a sheet. The reason I made for my late arrival was poor health. What a useful phrase. Having that phrase, I need not reveal Sams existence to anyone. Feeling that I absolutely did not crave my boss to know, I utilized not for interval time off but for paid time off.
Little by little the drug kicked in, and Sam went into rest mode. When I got to work, my boss( male) came over to me, seeming concerned.
Are you okay?
Have you been to see a doctor?
No, I havent. Does my face look that bad? I replied, with a laugh.
That was the end of the conversation. No thing how much I trusted my boss, I couldnt talk to him about Sam. I had to try and hide behind a bit of joking. Not being able to tell the truth, I felt that I was betraying my boss, and at the same day felt that I was betraying myself.
