Hah! I could not walk yesterday and I was in excruciating pain. I have not had such painful pain ever where I would literally scream in pain. So embarrassing but a great realisation of how much we take our simple limbs for granted every day. We take our health for granted every day. And when I couldn’t walk yesterday, I prayed so hard. I imagined what life would feel like if I could never walk again. It was so painful that I had to just lie in bed all day and I could not even turn from left to right as it was way too painful. Every move was a shout and the Hubs wanted to take me to the hospital but what would they do there? That thought freaked me out so I decided to take extra Izumio Hydrogen Water instead and extra Super Lutein capsules and went to bed. Granted, T1 spent more than an hour massaging me as well. Bless her. One of the few people who truly cares about me.
Today, I woke up feeling much, much better. I could walk! And I could sit and stand without that sharp jab that felt like the most painful thin pinch in your life, more painful than a knife cut. I was ecstatic!!! So I became the hero to fulfill all my kids’ wishes, cook lasagna with lots of vegetables, cook noodles with lots of fishballs and vegetables, make coconut gula Melaka agar-agar, fry kuih bakul in batter, and did a bit of work including carrying a 7.3kg box. It was right at that point when I stood for a whole 45 minutes in the kitchen when the pain started coming back. Not as bad as yesterday but I could feel the pain as my day progressed, becoming a little worse. Darn it. More Izumio tonight then.
I need to heal within 2 days because we are off to catch a plane abroad again!!! I cannot afford to not walk!!!!
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
