小病在身边 6

Previous Post :小病在身边 5

After writing five posts in Chinese, I decided to continue writing this series in English.

After graduating from my Chinese secondary school, I have been living in multi-racial community around 7 years. I have friends from different races and different background. Not much of them understand Chinese. 

Other than blog, I also do some short updates on Instagram.
I wrote the captions in Chinese and I start receiving messages from my friends who cannot read Chinese asking if I am okay.
I appreciate every heartwarming message by them and I would like to keep my status updated to all people around me who really care about me, so I decided to write in English.

The problem is I am poor at writing, especially English.
Please do correct me (comment below) if I am wrong (misuse the language, grammar, etc.).
Let me know so that I can improve my English.


Why am I seeing a university clinic letter on Yi Han's Instagram?
Is there any thing happened to Yi Han?
Is she okay?

These are the questions that pop up in your minds when you see my Instagram update, am I right?
It is actually a post telling everyone that

The nearly two-month observant period in USM clinic has came to the end.
I will bring along all the wishes to find the truth bravely.
I am fine, don't have to personal message me.  
If there is anything, my fingers will not stay quiet from reporting.

What happened?

There were 2-3 lumps under right my chin and neck.
It was not the first time, but it was the worst on May 2017.
I could not remembered when was the first time, because I thought it was just acne like my face.
It came, I put on medicine, and it disappeared. This cycle has kept repeating for at least 4 years.

At first, I thought it was me being too lazy to put on skincare and I started to be 'hardworking' to have skincare on my neck too (which supposed to be. Always remember the neck when we put skincare on our face.).

Next, I thought it was due to the oily hair cream and I decided not to use any hair cream although I have frizzy and curly hair.

Then, I thought it was due to my hair. I used to jog around almost everyday. The weather was hot. I made my own conclusion that I am not suitable to have long hair because I could not even take care of the hygiene. Whenever the 'acne' grew, I cut my hair. Even though my boyfriend at that time disagree on me to have pixie hairstyle, I insisted. Having a pixie hairstyle does not mean that I am Lesbian ( I am not opposed to same sex relationship) nor masculine attitude. I understand that boys like their girlfriends to have feminine hairstyle, but I just wanted to get rid of the 'acne'.  

The same thing happened to my ear.
I thought it was just hygiene problem.
When I broke up with my boyfriend, I cried almost every night and the tears went into my ears.
After few months, I stopped that, but it still happened.

In the early 2017, I was very busy organising event that I lost myself.
Averagely, I slept 4 hours a day and I have no time to get myself a mask.
It was normal that I have bad skin at that time.
On May 2017, I started to take really good care of myself.
I used top recommended skin products for my skin type and tied my hair up all the times (even at sleeping time).
The result was really upset and felt my efforts had been in vain.

I went to visit USM clinic. The visits experience was updated on the previous posts.
The conclusion from the previous posts was the 'acne' shrink but I still can feel the lumps.
On 19 May 2017, the doctor wrote a letter for me to bring the case to Penang General Hospital.

20 July 2017 | Visit to Penang General Hospital


I woke up early in the morning to start my GH journey.
It was not my first time visiting GH, but it was my first time visiting GH alone. **yahoo~ level up~**

First, I went to OPD clinic.
The doctor was Chinese, studying abroad and returned Malaysia for service.
It was a less than 5 minutes meeting, but he talked a lot.
There was nothing in my ear, so the thing to cure is the 'acne' on my chin and neck.
The doctor could not see anything there, but he touched and felt the lump.
He sent me to Jabatan Pergigian.

When I reached the clinic, it was stated Jabatan Bedah Mulut.
HHHMMMMMM.... 'Bedah Mulut' really scared me.
I was given specialist (unlike ortho department that I visit different specialist for each visit).
 X-ray of my mouth was taken and need to wait for the results.
The next appointment will be next month.

This GH trip ends around 10.30 a.m.
It took me 3 hours to go through 3 department.
Speedy process.


Here's the end of the update.
Hope it answers your curiosity.
Thank you for your well wishes.
Stay tuned for the next update. <3

小病在身边 5

上一章:小病在身边 4

2017 年 7 月 19 日 | 第五次复诊

5月11日第一次挂诊至今已经超过两个月。
脸上的痘痘已经明显退去,剩下一些痘疤。
这帖文就与大家分享我这两个月所面对的自己吧~



5月31日前后那几日,是最严重的阶段。
伤口红肿、留血水、身体缺水,夜间还抱着水壶灌水,伤口疼得难以入睡。
那段期间,恰巧是温习周。
我在家里住了大约三天后,伤口开始发作,我就回去宿舍了。
温习周到考试期间,我都减少外出。
午餐、晚餐,都是外带回宿舍食用,尽量不在公共场合呆太久,免得吓着了别人,也免了善心人士向我介绍护肤产品、护肤专家等,还要被我婉拒。





痘痘问题缠绕我多年,
诊所的医生们都喜欢说:小女孩、年轻人,有青春痘很正常,有青春痘才证明你年轻啊~ 青春期过了就没事了;
菜市、咖啡店等公共场合遇到叔叔阿姨就喜欢介绍民间疗法;
遇到同学朋友就喜欢给我介绍昂贵的护肤专家、护肤产品;
可是当中的苦,只有自己知。。。

难得有医生愿意诊治它,心里真的很兴奋、很感恩。

其实这次的治疗,痘痘是其次。
最主要的还是脖子上和下巴的囊肿。
虽然经消退许多,可是那小硬块迟迟不愿离去。
原以为今天也是个去复诊拿药的日子,可是医生却作了另一个决定。


医生本来要我去Bertam,大学的另一个诊所,接受样品采集来进行化验。
可惜路途太遥远,我只好请医生为我写推荐信去中央医院。

那我在中央医院发生了什么事情呢?
请留守接下来的帖子咯~

打兼职工是为了什么? 【经济独立篇】

今天和涵妈妈一起对于孩子打兼职工作了探讨,看看我俩对于这方面有怎么样的看法。

情况如下:
大学生每逢假期都会去打工。
家里属于中低收入家庭,有父母与兄弟姐妹。
父母与兄长都有收入。
为何大学生仍然坚持要去打工?

听了涵妈妈的答案后,我吓了一跳。原来涵妈妈是那么想的。
可是此帖不会告诉您涵妈妈是怎么回答。
此帖会告诉你我是怎么回应涵妈妈的。

这个情况就发生在自己家的孩子身上,也就是我。
自中学毕业以后,我做过好几分兼职工。
除了长知识、累计经验,赚钱就是很实际的目的。
如果我假期不出去打兼职工,我父母绝对不会让我饿肚子,不会缺吃,也不会缺穿的。
可是为什么工作再累,我还那么坚持打兼职工?
原因只有一个 -- 经济独立

身为孩子的我,学校假期不好好在家里休息,并不是家里缺钱,养不起孩子,而是我自己想达到经济独立。

1. 食
家长出外工作不在家,我得自行解决午餐。如果我每天靠着父母给的零用钱,我得看着吃。就算我买经济饭,吃不饱肚子,我也不能超支。当我经济独立以后,我是看着自己的生理需求买饭,比如说,可以添多半碗饭或者加些我喜欢的菜色。

2. 用
经济独立以前,我都只敢买每支二十令吉一下的洗脸霜。尽管洗脸霜不适用,痘痘消了又起,脸部涨红,把店里廉价的洗脸霜品牌都交替用了,都不敢要求买价稍微高的护肤品。后来自己有了收入后,终于买了比较适合自己,专门抗痘的洗脸霜。

3. 穿
记得以前获取工艺学院的录取时,信里通知新生需带大衣到学校。那时涵妈妈就从衣柜里拿出一件大衣。我对那件大衣的记忆从幼稚园就开始,那大衣有着复古金色纽扣,而且尺寸不符。家境不怎么好,也没敢要求家里特地挪一笔钱买大衣。后来靠着身边的姐妹,在入学前,终于有件新大衣带去报到。后来经济独立了,每次有特别场合需要添置新装,就不用担心了。

4. 行
从小到大,除了每年的家庭日,我都没离开过槟岛。后来终于有了一些收入,经济独立了,买了巴士票,去了首都参加工商学生研讨会。就算偶尔想到乔治市走一走散心,也不需跟父母要钱搭巴士。

这四点只是经济独立的其中小部分。当然也少不了帮补家用,偶尔帮忙还水电费等杂费。

如果我不打兼职工,收入只有贷学金,每到期末银行户口肯定只剩下鸡蛋。
每日三餐靠父母养着,一天到晚在家里赖着。
那我每月开销如电话加值、护肤品、女性月用品,是不是都得向父母要钱呢?
倘若有一天,我看上了一本书,我还得向父母提交申请、等批文与钱发下,我才可以买。
我今年二十多岁,如果我连这些基本的开销也无法自行负担,我觉得毫无自尊。
如果先把自尊往一旁搁,
倘若有一天,我有了那么一点点虚荣心,想买个抗痘面膜,也得向父母提交申请,但这申请未必会获得批文,可能还会换来一些唠叨说想当年都没用上护肤品,更别说面膜了。

幸好今天有机会与涵妈妈这一番探讨,才发现原来同一屋檐下的两代人对于这芝麻小事原来有天壤之别的看法。
看来以后得多与涵妈妈沟通,看一看彼此对于一些事的不同想法与见解。

小病在身边 4

2016 年 6 月 22 日 | 第三次覆诊

这些日子还有一些小肿囊不断冒出,至少没有前些日子那么难堪。
最近烈日当空,晒得伤口有些疼,只好戴上口罩。
考完试后的第一次复诊。
诊所特别少病人,登记手续还没办好就已经被叫号。
医生说情况乐观,在我离开的时候,医生还多次交代再给它多一段时日。


2016 年 7 月 6 日 | 第四次覆诊

小肿囊少了很多,剩下颈部那顽固的旧患和左脸颊昨晚刚冒出的新囊肿。
脸上的痘痘也少了,留下了不少痘疤。
中午十二点去挂诊碰钉子。
太多病人去挂我主治医生的号,结果那男护士要我转换医生。
我不依,只好下午两点再去试一试运气。
终于见到医生了,交代了近况,继续同样的药方。
医生说,现在开始步入黄金时期。
根治与否,就看这关键期了。
