Kojo [not his actual name] experienced butterflies in his tummy whenever he looked at Efua [not her real name]. He was obviously smitten by the lovely damsel in distress.
But, because “everything has to begin somewhere,” Kojo wanted to initiate a discussion with the girl of his dreams, which was a significant issue for the 24-year-old at the time.
When Kojo and Efua were assigned to work on a project in 2020, they first met. It was a one-month contract, so he just had 30 days to make his decision.
He admired Efua from a distance. His body was weak, despite his spirit’s desire to take a leap of faith.
“I noticed the girl and began admiring her, and I was eager to speak with her because the work is just for 30 days, and I would most likely not see her again after that.”
“But anytime I tried approaching her, I feel like too low to get her. I didn’t value myself, I guess,” he tells MyJoyOnline.com in an interview on Friday.
As a result, Kojo confided in his pal. His companion initially advised that he approach the girl while inebriated. He, however, declined.
The pal advised tramadol to increase his confidence once more. After some thought, the young kid agreed to the plan and bought the medicine.
“I didn’t inform my pal I was buying the drug, but I did so without his knowledge.” I took the medicine right before I was supposed to go to work the next day. He explains, “I didn’t know how it worked, so I took as many as I could.”
What transpired next was not at all what Kojo had planned.
“I went to work but I couldn’t last in the workplace for an hour. I started behaving madly, insulting people here and there. I came back home and went straight into my room. It was around 9:00am in the morning and I slept for two days straight.” Partially unconscious during the period, Kojo says it took people to break into his room to help him out. “Fortunately, we had a nurse in our house.
He came and gave me some drugs before I was taken to the hospital.” “I was admitted for two weeks and it wasn’t nice. I was half dead. My eyes opened in the hospital,” he narrates. When he fully recovered, Kojo decided to man up and approach Efua as he ought to. “I asked the girl out but I couldn’t succeed. I lost twice.”
But the situation taught Kojo a valuable lesson. He has subsequently promised not to take any medication without first consulting a doctor.
“People would have said I died of a drug overdose, but I would have died because of a girl,” he finished sarcastically.
