This passed but this was my Good Friday lunch. I cooked some food and asked a couple coworkers to cook as well. Other coworkers joined us in remembering the day that Jesus died for our sins.

As mentioned in my last video post, I tried to be superwoman two Sundays ago, and that only resulted in me injuring myself. My injury left a fleshy, disgusting wound in my left leg, which then got infected!!! Last week, I dealt with a fever, the chills, a head and eye ache, and sore body, due to the infection. If THAT wasn’t bad enough, I somehow obtained acute gastroenteritis, causing me to have some intense stomach pains, as well as not being able to eat for about three days. Feeling so miserable and down, my week consisted of hospital visits, and 3 hours long iv treatments, for both my leg infection and my stomach.
Although I’m slowly but surely healing, I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I keep getting SOMETHING! Things have not been so smooth for me this year with constantly being sick, and that’s not all. China is also getting to me quite badly-the stares in the streets, people trying to sneak a photo of me while I’m not looking, the screams and shrieks coming from some people who see me, the people trying to calm down because the sight of me “terrified and scared them” to the point that their heart raced, the comments about how “dark” I am or ugly or tall or this, that, and the other. Seriously, understanding Mandarin, is both a blessing AND a curse! -_____- .
I get that I’m different, and I know that not many people in this homogeneous city, in this extremely homogeneous country, aren’t used to seeing someone like me but enough is enough! I feel as though I’m about to lose my mind! At times, it gets so bad that all I want to do is just enjoy the comfort of my studio apartment. I would say that I’m a strong young woman and I’ve dealt with a lot of crap, from a young age but the way things are going here, I feel bits of myself chipping away little by little. I honestly feel as though this might be my final year in China or at least in Shenzhen.
We’ll see how the year goes…..
