When 2020 came, the first month had always been the busy month for me. I didn’t even celebrate the New Year with my family because year-end reports which I had to accomplish would be flooding at this point in time. As always, these would be accompanied by anxiety and stress which would heighten up as the deadline for submission got nearer and nearer. Added to this, my fears soared to the highest level when Taal Volcano erupted and that was also the time when my colleagues and I had an official trip to Manila. We were stranded at the airport for almost 12 hours. When I was in Manila, my stomach hurt so badly that I vomited  almost 10 times. I  could barely walk because of the tremendous pain I felt in my stomach.
