“It’s just dandruff, it can’t be that serious”

This is a picture of me healthy after six weeks of daily medication and short nights. I thank God.

The last quarter of 2017 was really tough for me. It was the first time I ever had to be on medication that was to last for almost three months.

I cut my hair on the 27th of November 2017, for those of you who don’t know. I was treating a fungal infection that happened because I had dandruff over the years and didn’t take it seriously. Told myself it can’t be that serious so never paid much attention to treating it.

Then in December, my wisdom tooth started growing but it was slanting so I was in serious pain and the dentist said I had to remove it as this was the permanent solution to the pain.

I was working on a project then and didn’t want any discomfort so I was taking Cataflam to help ease the pain and eventually took out the tooth before Christmas. My God, my mouth was swollen for almost 10 days and I had to add to my medication. So now i was treating a fungal infection and my swollen mouth.

Had to take at least 7 pills every morning and night. I always panicked if I wasn’t with my drugs and all this while I had completely forgotten about my faith and what God’s word says about my health.

God has always been faithful to me so this January, I joined my parents to Redemption Camp for our annual Holy Ghost Service and it was there I got reminded about taking charge of my health with faith and I decided to put my faith to work. I trusted God to heal me completely and threw away all my drugs the next morning.

The swelling on my mouth is long gone now, my hair is growing healthy now and I’m okay, I thank God.

This period taught me that I shouldn’t take my health for granted. I need this body to win souls to God’s kingdom. I need to be alive and healthy so people see my life and want to get to know God.

If you’re reading this, you need to start taking your health seriously. Eat well, take out time to rest, visit the dentist twice a year, don’t mix too many products on your hair, take a shower regularly. Accept yourself, don’t look to change how you are.

I pray the good Lord helps us take our health more seriously this year in Jesus name, Amen 🙏🏼

Have a great day 🙂
