I did something extremely naughty today. I went to play badminton today although my wrists have not completely healed yet. I don’t know what I was thinking. Clearly, I wasn’t thinking straight. -_-
All the excitement died when I swung the racquet for the first time. That sharp pang of electrocuting pain I felt in my wrist was almost unbearable. Still, I did not stop. I decided to play it slow, play it soft instead. A couple more strokes into the warm up session, I thought to myself, Okay, seems like I can do this. I just gotta be really careful not to use too much force.
I then managed to play one game. One really slow game. And decided to stop and not play for the rest of the afternoon. I attended to Naomi, who behaved so well by the way! She quietly took a nap for an hour in her pram after I walked her around the school grounds for fifteen minutes or so.
About two hours later, after rejecting a couple of game offers, I finally gave in and decided to give it one more shot. This time, it was a slightly more serious gameplay. And boy, did I regret taking the rear court shots twice in a row. I immediately felt the sharp pain kick in again, only this time it was a lot worse. I couldn’t wait for the game to wrap up quickly and leave the court. 😭
When Mr S bathed Naomi once we got home, I quickly took a shower as well so I could put on my wrist braces ASAP!!! Mr S then prepared dinner (thanks, baby!) while I fed Naomi and rocked her to sleep (read: my wrists screaming HELPPP!!!!!!). When I came out the first time to try to eat my dinner, I realised that I couldn’t even hold my spoon without feeling the pain in my wrist!! So, I resorted to feeding myself with my left hand, lol! 😰
After dinner, just when I was about to rush to the toilet to clear my bladder, my phone rang. It was a FaceTime call from mom! I took the call quickly and guess what? I 中骂咯 (got scolded)! My sister must’ve told my mum that I hurt my wrist again by going to badminton this afternoon, hahahaha! I sheepishly confessed to my mom that yes, I injured myself again, hehehehe…
Now, this is where the point of this post comes in.
I titled this post “Daughter” because it was when my mom nagged me that I realised, my mom 心痛 me because I hurt myself. I was careless and I was stubborn. I was so ignorant. I know it hurts my mom more than it hurts me when I’m injured. Because I’m her daughter. I know because I’m a mother myself.
So when I heard mom nagging me over the phone to see a GP ASAP, I actually felt quite warm in my heart because I know how much she cares for me. 💖
Mama, sorry for keeping you worried. I’ll be guai now and take better care of myself. Promise! 😘 And thank you for loving me!! Muahs!
