September 2017 Day 22

Did you have chores when you were a kid? What were they? What did you think about having chores? What was your least favorite chore? Is it still?

Yes, I was brought up with work (Chores) as long as I can remember.

At the age of 12, I was helping my father doing housework, like the washing and cleaning and cooking in the house, as my mother was in Palmerston North hospital for six weeks in 1952, when she came home she didn’t do much work. I still never found out why she was there other than having treatment for a goiter.

Work never worried me I was quite happy doing anything as I never could sit still for very long, as the years went by I realized as long as I was working I didn’t get growl at for being lazy.

At the age of seventeen and a half, I spent a month in the hospital which I think was a nervous breakdown, it was never found out what was wrong with me, even after many tests like Lumber Puncture (Spine tap to get fluid for a lab test).

One year later I ran away from home, I will be writing a follow-up about this time in my life very soon, I’m now ready to share it.

  1. I’m sorry that you and your mama both had to spend such a long time in the hospital. I spent the first two weeks of my life in a hospital. Mama and I were both sick when I was born. Her blood pressure went so high that she passed out and didn’t even know I had been born. I almost died due to an anaphylactic episode. I was, and am, allergic to penicillin and several other antibiotics, which they gave me for the bronchitis I was born with.

    How long does the hospital there hold onto patient records? Maybe you could request copies of the records of your stay and your mother’s, too, then that mystery would be solved. Sometimes it takes what seems to be an act of congress to get these records, even when you’re asking for your own.

    I look forward to reading your runaway story whenever you share it. I am glad that you have come to a point where you can write about it.

    Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
