I don’t know how to explain, even to the doctor. I know it sounds weird and ridiculous, some of my friends even claimed it was funny.
It started two days ago when I realized I got purple stain on the tissue paper that I used to wipe my ear after shower. I was a bit shock but I didn’t care much as I was late to work. In fact, very late!
At work, I usually wash my face and wipe it with tissue few times a day. So, as a routine, I went to the washroom around 10am to wash my face. After rinsed it with water, I used tissue paper to wipe the excess oil off my face. To my great surprise, the purple stain all over the tissue paper. With thousand of questions and curiosity, I showed the tissue paper to my colleagues. What I got was a big laugh from them claimed it was from the stamp pad that I used this morning or the beauty product such as toner or moisturizer. I agreed with the first one.
In the afternoon before I went out for lunch with my friends, I did the same as earlier. Rinsed face and wiped my face. Not really surprise, the result was still the same.
I went out for lunch at esplanade. It was a very good lunch and good conversation.
I went back to office after lunch and I went straight to the washroom as I hate oily face. Furthermore, my face got pimples lately. I have to really take care of it. It was the same result, purple stain on the tissue paper.
I started to feel panic even though I didn’t show it on my face.
When I took shower at home, I realized that the purple stain stick on the shower handle. “Damn! This is serious!” that was what I thought. Another thing in my mind was “Am I going to die?” not that I was afraid but to see someone sad really broke my heart into pieces especially when the whisper was soft and tender “I want you forever please don’t leave me…” my whole body became numb. I got watery eyes but lucky the tears were not purple!
The next day I got the same result. Purple, purple and purple! Actually it was not just on my face, but the whole body especially around my knees. My colleagues were really shock and advised me to see doctor as soon as possible or do traditional treatment. One of the colleagues who know a bit about traditional treatment touched me on the shoulder, neck (I was almost choked!) and head. He told me I need to see a stronger shaman who could treat me better because from what he got, someone, a girl did some spell on me. Honestly, even though my aunt got possessed in front of me and the shaman treated her, I still curious about the spell and everything. I never deny that those invisible things exist, just that some of the so called shaman always take advantage. I wonder how some peoples are so obsess with this kind of thing.
Today, I went to see doctor. I brought some tissue papers that I had been using for the past two days and not to forget the pills (flu and phlegm) that been given by my dear. The doc looked at them and without any shock told me it must be from the food or fruit that I ate. I told him that I ate seafood a lot lately. He asked me not to worry so much and gave me cough syrup and antibiotic instead as I have been coughing for 3 weeks.
On my way back from the clinic, mom texted me on cell phone reminded me about the thorny clam that I ate last Sunday. I agreed with her. It must be that thorny clam and lately I ate a lot of seafood! Perhaps, it was iodine?
Now, I have no purple stain anymore on my body and the cough is getting better. So, now I should believe in shaman and the spell? You tell me.
