Pampering myself

Hello everyone,

I don’t know about you, but I don’t often get the chance to pamper myself. Nor do I often have the time. I don’t go to spas or anything. I’m not that kind of person, but it is nice to get things for my hair and make-up every once in a while. What I consider pampering is: books and going out to restaurants. So what is beauty pampering to me? Well, I never really was a prim and prissy type of girl when I was a teenager. Please don’t think I’m judging anyone, because I’m not. Some girls are good at that and some aren’t. I’m just one of those who aren’t. When I do pamper myself there are a few places I tend to go to. I go to Walmart and Walgreens because I tend to not know a lot about beauty supplies and am still working on my regimen. I do try to stay with organic and natural, but I can’t do that all the time. For most of my lotions and bath shower products I use Bath and Body Works Tru Blue. Not there real smelly stuff. Tru Blue is a great line and it contains shea as most of the product. If you are unsure, just try a trial size. I think you will like it. I don’t often invest in good brushes, but today I did. Usually, I just use plastic. Today I got an organic for about ten dollars. Usually a plastic will last about three months, so let’s see how this does.

Well, that’s a bit about today. I’m tired. Got my nephew over tonight and he has wore me out. 🙂 Happy Earth Day!

I’m back….

Hello everyone,

It’s been a few since I have been active and I wanted to go ahead and explain why. On the 25th of March I had another really bad seizure that had me hospitalized, this time for four days. After being discharged from the hospital I went to HealthSouth which is a rehabilitation center. I was there from the 29th of March till April 12th. Let’s just say that I was not happy. The first week I was really out of it. The second day I had fallen and I thought that I had asked one of the nurses to go out to get a sex on the beach drink. (That’s how damn out of it I was.) I was in the neurology department. It was a specialized department where people had to buzz or use a card to get in. While I was there I felt a range of emotions. I appreciate everyone who helped me. They got me back to help and I couldn’t have done anything without them. However, I always had to buzz to ask to get up to go to the bathroom. I was so resentful sometimes. I hated having to wait to call someone to ask to get out of bed or be driven by a wheelchair to the bathroom. However, it could have been worse. I am appreciative of everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t disappeared. Have a good night.

Life sucks for me

Hello everyone,

I’m not trying to be negative, but I guess I am. It just seems that since coming back from the hospital I haven’t felt any better. My body just aches terribly and you know what they say about how when one aspect of your life affects the other. I just can’t seem to keep positive about anything lately. Which really sucks. The only thing that seems to keep me interested is reading my books, watching tv, and seeing my nephew. I don’t even want to write my fanfictions anymore, which sucks because I have a lot that I have to finish and some that I need to start. Anyway, I got to get out of this rut. I will somehow. Just pray for me if you have the time. Have a good night!

Not up to par

Hi everyone,

Well I haven’t been posting because I just haven’t been feeling like it. My body literally feels like it wants to punish me. Ever since I have got home I just have felt tired and achy. When I get into bed it takes me every ounce of my being to just get in and roll on my side. I have no clue what the heck is wrong with me. I don’t know if it is just effects from the seizure I had or what. I just feel terrible every time I get up. My bruises are starting to go away, which I am appreciating the Lord and Lady for that, but goodness I wish my body felt up to par like it used to. I just feel like I have been put in the trash can. I don’t know if you have ever felt like that, but I hope you never have that feeling. I just hope that this feeling goes away real soon. I promise to update sooner. Have a good night.

So it’s been a while since I’ve written

Hello everyone,

It seems that it has been a while since I have written. I owe a little of an explanation. On the third, last Friday, I was taken into the hospital due to a seizure. I had a real bad one. My parents had found me and apparently I was upstairs, flopping around on the floor, I got a lot of bruises. Believe me, I am in a lot of pain. Anyway, I was taken to the E.R. by a man from the ambulance by three flights of steps. I was wheeled in and my parents came in. I remember them coming in and talking to me and me telling then that I was tired and to go on back home. Apparently, the next day I was taken to the NCCU (Neuroscience Clinical Unit) and was intubated by an anesthesiologist. Someone did it at least. The next day, which was Monday, I woke up and felt like it had been as if 20 minutes had passed. It was very scary to tell the truth. On Tuesday, I had the tube taken out. Thank goodness. Wednesday, I stayed one more night and Thursday, I finally went home. It was a rough stay and I hope not to ever go through another one again. I’m hoping to find out what the heck is wrong with me. This is just a ridiculous thing to have to go through. But that’s what I thought I would say.

And March begins

Hello everyone,

Well today is the beginning of March. I feel like this year is passing by so quickly. I just can’t believe it. This month, I am hoping, will be better than February. Next week my mom and I have to go to Kentucky to take care of my Granny. We’re leaving on Tuesday, but I don’t know if we’re coming back on Thursday or early Friday. This month I’m also getting a new laptop. The old one I have is giving me major issues. I’ve had it for over two years and it’s about time I get a new one anyway. I’ll be glad when I get it. Tomorrow, my mom and I have to go out and do a lot of things so we are going to be busy preparing for next week. My dad is doing better since his surgery. He’s not having as much pain, which is good, but he’s still sleeping. I don’t blame him though. Anyway, I’m thinking positive for this month. I hope it is much better than last. Have a good night.

Another update

Hello everyone,

Well I thought I would give you an update on my dad and me as well. My dad came home on Friday. We still think that was too soon. He is in some pain. He took out the dogs and cleaned yesterday, but heck, of course he is going to be in pain if he over does it. Mom is changing his dressings. I just hope his pain starts to go away soon. I think he goes this week to see his doctor for a check-up on the stitches and stuff.

As for me, I’m disappointed. On Friday, I had a seizure. After four months of not having one, and being so close to my six month goal, I had a seizure. So I have to wait for another six months. I don’t know what I will do if I get a job. My mom or dad will have to drive me and pick me up. It makes me feel so depressed at times. It’s like my body is against me. Well that is it for now. Talk soon.
