One thing most people always forget is to thank God for the gift of life and I’m guilty of this.
I woke up this morning yes, but there was a 70% chance I would not have seen today.
My generator had a problem and the repairer came to take it and he decided to give me his generator to manage for the night. I slept around 1:00am and was waking up at intervals to complain about severe headache to my friends ,(never had this type of headache in my entire life). I woke up around 3:00am, 4:00 am to also complain of this same headache. I couldn’t even sleep properly.
Finally, I woke up around 7:00 am to prepare for school and then this headache got worse. (I initially thought the coffee drink I took earlier caused it)
I couldn’t take it anymore and I woke my friends up to ask if they felt the same way which they did, then we started wondering what could have been the cause I called my younger brother who later figured everything out and made us understand it was the generator that caused it.(This generator the man gave me was bad and the fumes coming out of it was poisonous carbon monoxide also note that as at 7:30 am we put off this demonic generator).
To cut the long story short, we immediately went to the nearest clinic as we were all dizzy and nauseous and then we were attended to and we were given pain killers to subside the severe headache and was advised to take sugar to jumpstart the brain. I already called my mum to inform her and trust African mothers to be extra, she told me to use anointing handkerchief, lime and water and plead the blood of Jesus on the water I was about to drink😭.
I’m typing this now feeling so weak but the headache and dizziness has subsided and I couldn’t be more grateful. Here thinking about the “whatifs”.
Lessons to learn
•Always take note of everything around you
•Always check everything before you go to sleep.
•Little things count, be cautious
•Avoid inhaling dangerous fumes from trucks, factory generators, and normal generators.
•Avoid other vehicles with black fumes(poisonous carbon monoxide) as they keep piling up in the body and can cause long health issues.
•Finally, please remember to pray before you sleep always and even after you wake up just be grateful.
