Awhile ago in the office, our branch manager gathered us in an emergency meeting. The news is our branch service head is resigning. *a moment of silence*

Resignations in a work environment where everyone treat each other like brothers and sisters are so hard to take. I have been in my current employer for 4 years and there were two heavy resignations that already passed. Now is the third one. I know the only thing that is constant in this world is CHANGE but every time someone resigns I can’t help but wonder what would happen to us who were left behind. I guess it’s just a normal reaction but I know I can get through this. Two resignations and eventually after a few months of adjustment the branch caught up with our normal operations. I’m just sad like any other resignations that happened in our office.

As for me, I still don’t have that feeling that I want to resign. I don’t want to rush in my decision just because someone resigned, I too would resign. I know I can handle this. Been there, done that. There is no reason I won’t be able to handle this change. I just have to embrace it because it is part of life.

Everything happens for a reason and the right time will come in God’s time.

It was a fine Monday. I was my usual self at work energetic and full of passion. I work in a bank. Banks have no lunch breaks. In my case, I am the only New Accounts personnel in our branch. If clients visit the branch to inquire or to open an account especially during lunch breaks, I have no choice but to cater these clients. Our branch is one of the busiest. 

I hate to admit but whenever I felt the need to urinate I sometimes held it to finish off what I was currently doing making the most of my time. I already experienced UTI before and the infection came back yesterday.From all the sickness I have experienced, having a UTI was the worst! Holding off theneed to pee bit my ass off! It was around 6:00 PM I finished off some things at work and yes I was already holding the need to pee. By the time I went to urinate, I felt something weird and thought shit it’s UTI again. I was not feeling well after I urinated. 

When I got home, I urinated after every 30 minutes. My original plan was to go to my OB-Gyne the next day but I wasn’t able to take the pain and decided to go to the emergency room in a hospital near where we lived. I couldn’t sleep because of the pain and uneasiness the UTI has brought. The doctor in the ER instructed me to have an urinalysis and after an hour the results proved that it was a UTI. He gave me antibiotics good for 7 days and instructed me to have an ultrasound of my urinary bladder and kidneys. I was really scared because we are talking about kidneys here the possibility of  a dialysis is unbearable and costly! I can’t have that in my lifetime! Thank heavens my kidneys and bladder were normal after I got the result and have it interpreted by a doctor.

My office mate also had an allergy that he had to be brought to the hospital. Our branch was already disabled with two personnel on a sick leave. I felt bad that I wasn’t able to report to work but what about me? Should I just ignore my pain? From that moment, I thought I love myself and I have to take care of my body and decided to push through with my sick leave. Sometimes we get so being martyr with our jobs that we forget to think about our health. 

HEALTH IS WEALTH. If you are not healthy, you’ll spend all your money paying for consultations and medication. Always put your health on top of everything. It is not being selfish, it is just loving yourself and taking care of your body. You also don’t have to explain to people what you have been through. It is what it is. We have to be healthy for the people we love because who would take care of them if we can’t take care of ourselves.
