Chapter 25: Delusional disorder

Gu Xia looked at the time. It was already six in the morning. He moved his stiff body and continued to wait for Tu Sisi to wake up.

“Gu Xia, eat something!” Li Sicheng came in early and urged him.

“Put it here! Thank you, Sicheng.” Gu Xia said in a hoarse voice.

Hearing this, Li Sicheng punched him on the shoulder and angrily said, “We are brothers, so why are you thanking me!”

Gu Xia looked at Li Sicheng’s haggard complexion, and felt a warm feeling in his heart, so he softly said, “That’s right, we’re brothers.”

“I’m just outside, you better call me if you need something, alright?” Li Sicheng looked at the unconscious Tu Sisi and said with a sigh.

“Hmm…”

Gu Xia ate something and quietly continued to guard.

The door of the room pushed open, and a doctor came in. He glanced at Tu Sisi, and asked Gu Xia, “Is the patient still not awake?”

“Yes, she hasn’t woken up yet, doctor, have the results come out?” Gu Xia hurriedly asked.

“Who are you to the patient?” The doctor asked.

“I’m her hus…boyfriend, you can show it to me.” Gu Xia almost said the word husband, and hurriedly changed his words.

“Then come with me!” The doctor nodded and said.

In the doctor’s office, the sign on the doctor’s chest showed that his surname was Li. At the moment Doctor Li was sitting at the table, and Gu Xia was sitting  opposite of him, nervously looking at the doctor.

“The patient’s body is quite healthy. As for why she fainted, we have checked and suspected that it may be a psychological or mental illness. Since the patient has not woken up yet, we are not sure what the cause is.” The doctor looked at the test results and said.

“Psychological or mental illness?” Gu Xia froze for a moment and asked in disbelief.

“Yes, you can go accompany the patient first. Once she wakes up, you have to notify me, and I will arrange for a psychiatrist to check her.” Director Li said.

“Okay, thank you Doctor Li.” Gu Xia stood up and thanked him.

After Gu Xia returned to the ward, Wang Qian and Li Sicheng hurried forward, and Wang Qian asked anxiously, “What did the doctor say?”

Originally, she also wanted to listen to what the doctor said, but Gu Xia asked her to stay here. If Tu Sisi woke up, she would also need someone to take care of her, so she didn’t go.

Gu Xia pretended to be relaxed and said with a smile, “It’s okay, the doctor said that Sisi was anemic during this time, and you also know that it was that time of the month for her, so she fainted, and she will wake up very soon”

Gu Xia continued, “Okay, now you and Sicheng can go rest! I will stay here.”

When Wang Qian heard that Tu Sisi was fine, she breathed a sigh of relief, nodded and said, “That’s good, we’ll go back to rest first, and when Sisi wakes up, remember to call me as soon as possible, okay? We’ll just sleep for a while and come back.”

“Okay, don’t worry, Sicheng, take Wang Qian back to rest, I’m going to be okay here.” Gu Xia nodded and said to Li Sicheng.

“Okay, call me if you need anything.” Li Sicheng nodded and said.

“I know…I know!”

Gu Xia walked into the ward only after watching the two of them leave, and was stunned as soon as he entered, only to see Tu Sisi standing by the window, staring blankly outside.

“Sisi, you are awake?Thank god!” Gu Xia rushed over and grabbed Tu Sisi’s shoulder.

“Gu Xia, I’m hungry.” Tu Sisi said numbly.

“Okay, you wait here, I’ll buy you something to eat.” Gu Xia said hurriedly.

“Also, don’t forget to pick up Cheng Cheng, his kindergarten is about to close soon.” Tu Sisi shouted.

Gu Xia had just walked to the door when he was stunned. He was struggling to accept this.

It seems that the doctor was right. This sickness was not of the body, but the mind!

“Hmm…”

Gu Xia responded, and the moment he went out, tears kept pouring out without stopping.

No wonder Tu Sisi was acting a little strange on the top of Mount Tai yesterday!

She misses her son so much!

Gu Xia took a deep breath, wiped his tears, and went to the hospital cafeteria to buy her some porridge and steamed buns.

When he came back, there was a doctor and two nurses standing in the ward. Just when Gu Xia wanted to go in, he was stopped by the nurse.

“Give me the food, you have to wait at the door, the doctor is checking,” Said one of the nurses.

Gu Xia walked outside the door, and he knew that the doctor was a psychiatrist.

Gu Xia clenched his hands tightly, feeling uneasy in his heart, he was really afraid.

At this moment, Tu Sisi’s parents and sister ran over, and after seeing Gu Xia, Tu Jianguo hurriedly asked, “How is Sisi?”

“They are still checking her condition inside, and we won’t know until the doctor comes out.” Gu Xia replied.

“How could such a thing happen? I didn’t want her to go out this time. Tu Jianguo, if you didn’t agree, could Sisi have such an accident? If it wasn’t for the hospital calling us, we would still not know.” Tang Chunhua said angrily.

“Mom, don’t talk too much. When the doctor comes out, we’ll know how Sisi is doing. Don’t worry, Sisi has always been tough, she’ll be fine.” Tu Fangfang comforted her mother.

“Gu Xia, come with me, I have something to ask you.” Tu Jianguo pointed to the end of the corridor and said, and he walked over there.

Gu Xia nodded and followed.

Tu Jianguo handed a cigarette to Gu Xia, and he lit his cigarette and took a deep breath. Looking at Gu Xia, he said, “What’s going on? What did the doctor say?”

Gu Xia took a deep breath and slowly repeated what the doctor said to Tu Jianguo.

“So the doctor said that Sisi has some kind of mental problem?” Tu Jianguo frowned.

“Hmm…” Gu Xia nodded in response.

“How is that possible? Sisi has always been healthy since she was a child. She even had very few colds and fevers. How could there be a problem with her psychology? Haahh…” Tu Jianguo sighed.

“Uncle, wait for the doctor to come out and we’ll ask the doctor again!” Gu Xia comforted him.

“That’s the only way, thank you for your hard work.” Tu Jianguo said with a slow expression when he saw Gu Xia’s dark circles and tired expression, knowing that he had been caring for his daughter.

“It’s okay, uncle, this is what I should do.” Gu Xia shook his head and said.

*****

Everyone waited outside the door, and they didn’t speak. They were all worried about Tu Sisi inside. Some time later, Li Sicheng and Wang Qian also came over.

Gu Xia was worried. If the doctor diagnosed Tu Sisi with a psychological problem, and coupled with the strange state Tu Sisi was in for the past two days, his father-in-law and mother-in-law would definitely be suspicious. When the time comes when they ask him about Sisi, what should he say?

Gu Xia couldn’t help but have a headache. He searched for Tu Sisi’s condition on the Internet. Many people said that it was a mental problem, and it was a problem that occurred when someone was missing someone or something to the extreme. There have only been two cases of this situation in the world. And there has never been such a case in China.

If this is the case with Sisi, then it will be very tricky.

Gu Xia can only pray secretly in his heart.

“Creeck!”

When the doctor and nurse came out, Tang Chunhua hurried forward and asked, “Doctor, how is my daughter?”

“I have checked your daughter’s mental state repeatedly, and I can initially determine that she suffers from a mental illness called “Psychotic Delusional Disorder.” The doctor slowly said.

“What kind of disease is this Psychosis?” Tu Jianguo asked with a frown.

“As the name suggests, Psychosis refers to when a person misses someone or something to the extreme, so that the spiritual world evolves into a virtual world. People with this disease will often enter the world they imagined. They’ll say and do strange things.”  The doctor explained.

“How could my daughter have this disease? Doctor, how can we treat it?” Tang Chunhua cried.

“Keep her hospitalized for a few days. If it’s not serious, she can recover with treatment. If it’s serious, then you need to contact foreign experts. There is currently no one with the experience in treating such diseases in China.” The doctor shook his head and said.

“She has to go abroad! Is it so serious?” Tang Chunhua’s body softened for a while, she said in shock.

“Chunhua, didn’t you hear the doctor say if it’s a serious situation? Wait until we find out.” Tu Jianguo supported his wife and comforted her.

“Okay, if there are any issues, you can tell the nurse to call me.” The doctor left after saying that.

“Jianguo, how could Sisi have this kind of disease! My Sisi!” Tang Chunhua cried while leaning against Tu Jianguo’s arms.

“Okay, stop crying, let’s go in and see Sisi!” Tu Jianguo comforted his wife.

Tu Sisi’s parents and sister all walked into the ward, leaving only Gu Xia and Li Sicheng.

Gu Xia sighed and said, “Sicheng, Sisi’s family is here, you and Wang Qian should go back to rest first!”

Li Sicheng nodded and asked, “What about you?”

“You go first, I’ll go back by myself later.” Gu Xia said with a smile.

“Okay, then take care of yourself, you know? There is 10,000 yuan in this card, you have to take it, don’t refuse, if you refuse, you will punch your face! I will send the password to your mobile phone later.” He took out the bank card from his pocket and put it in Gu Xia’s hand.

“Then Gu Xia, be careful.” Wang Qian also said.

“Don’t worry! You go to the hotel to rest first, and I’ll find you later.” Gu Xia waved his hand and said.
