Missing Leo

Leo will be leaving for Jakarta early tomorrow morning for their company's annual planning. He hasn't left yet but I'm missing him already.

He will only be gone for a week but it seems like a long time for me. This will be the longest time that we're apart ever since my Singapore trip last March (that was only 3 days).

I know I'll survive this week, I'm just worried if I'm suddenly hit by leg cramps in the middle of the night. Whenever that happens, I can always count on Leo to wake up and stretch my leg for me. The pain can be debilitating and I really don't know what I'll do when it's just me. I guess I'll just take precautions and stretch before I go to sleep. Other than that, I pray that I'll be able to handle it.

I'm sure it's not going to be easy for you. Mabilis naman ang araw at me SMS naman. Konting tiis lang.

I get cramps every so often. Just try to take all precautions para 'di ka magkaroon ng cramps sa gabi. Keep your legs warm too.

Have a great week ahead!

If you do get a leg cramp, you may be able to make it go away by:

* Walking on the affected leg
* Massaging the affected muscle
* Straightening your leg and flexing your foot toward your knee until you feel the calf muscles stretch
* Applying a cold pack to the affected muscle
* Taking a hot bath

To help prevent night leg cramps:

* Drink plenty of fluids during the day.
* Stretch your leg muscles before bedtime.
* Get adequate potassium in your diet.

Bananas are a good source of potassium. I hate leg cramps too early in the morning. Just think Leo's presents for you when he comes back home.

when you stretch your legs make sure yung foot mo nakadorsiflex and not plantarflex. i promise you you wont experience any leg cramps. it did worked for me i'm sure syo din.
