A short note about dreams

Another random thought.

Yesterday was a hard day for me and particularly for him. Well, i don't want to share the details here. Actually, i still have no idea what i should write this time. Perhaps a reflection, a full story, a message behind the story, or some wise words that i can take from yesterday. No, the bigger picture is still blur, and we still can't even imagine what will happen tomorrow, next month, this end of the year and so forth.

As might as i expect, writing this complicated things can help me to see all of this sudden attack clearer. Hopefully.

I have started to live by myself at 14 yo until almost 24. It’s impossible for me to get homesick badly so I will develop any disease.
In reality, I was doing it.
Yups, something happened with my body that I just noticed here. I never experienced it before I came here. It happens now, after I live one month here. And It was getting worse.
As a doctor, I aware with my body signals. And I know, there is something wrong.
My whole body perhaps still doesn’t feel co…
