In a lot of pain

I’ve been in a lot of pain lately. I don’t know why, but part of it is, I think, because of my mattress. Next month I plan to get a new mattress from QVC on easy pay. Until then I guess I am going to have to suffer. I’m just having a lot of back pain and pain in my hips. This really is not helping me. I don’t blame it fully on the mattress though. I need to get back to living healthier. I need to get to having a diet and sticking to it. My cravings have been overpowering me really badly and I have got to the point where I haven’t been able to control them. So I have to get that under control. I also need to walk more. Take more steps everyday. I’m going to go back to swimming at the WVU center next month. So maybe that will help me with my back as well. So anyway, that is all for now. Talk soon.

Getting things back in order

Well yesterday I became six months seizure-free, which means I can drive by myself again. It is exciting when you have epilepsy and you can get back on the road. Many people take driving for granted. It’s a freedom for me. Well today I went with my dad to the courthouse and DMV to pay property taxes and I had to get a new license plate at the DMV. Turns out that after four months of not driving your car you have to get a new one. I haven’t driven mine in six. So all that is done. Now the servicing and inspection will be done on Friday and after that my car will be officially road ready. Next week I am going down to see my BFF and her family. I am so excited! Lots to do before I go, but I’m trying to get everything ready. Well that’s it for now. Talk soon.

It’s September and I’m back

I know I wasn’t very active last month everyone. I’ve been trying to get myself in order and it’s just been hard for me. I’ve been seeing a social therapist and it’s a strange transition talking to her. I’m also struggling with my weight. It’s going up and down and I am trying to get it to go back down. I don’t see the bariatric surgeon until November, so until then I am hoping to lose weight nonetheless.

September is also a difficult time because I am studying for my CCA exam which I will be taking next month. One good thing is that I am going to be able to drive on the 25th of this month. I can’t wait. I just can’t wait to drive my car again by myself. 🙂

I have also decided to go back to school one more time. I have decided to apply to WVU for a major in Geology. I want to be a paleontologist and if I never try then I know I will regret it. So I will go ahead and apply for the Spring quarter. Anyway, that’s all I have to say for now. Talk soon.

A long crappy day

Well today didn’t start off too well to tell the truth. This morning around 1:00 something I wake up to hear my boy dog barking. It’s the next door neighbors outside and he and his sister can hear them talking. The barking doesn’t stop till after 3:00 am. I’m sick and feel crappy. I don’t get to bed till after 4:00 and this causes me to forget and miss one of my doctor’s appointments. I was able to make it up and see my doctor (the neurologist) later on, thank goodness, but it upset me that I forget all about it. I also had a second appointment with my dermatologist. Both appointments went well, I just felt crappy and still do because I’m sick. So after the appointments we, being my parents and I, stopped at the quilt shop. They got what they wanted and then we went and had supper at Garfield’s. To be honest, it was so-so. It used to be a really good restaurant. Now, it’s really looking bad and the food wasn’t as great as it used to be. The bottom bun of my burger was wet. We’re not going back. Then I came home and took a shower. I’m hoping tonight will be better sleep-wise. Anyway, I will update soon. Have a good night.

I hate being sick

Today I had to go to the Urgent Care to be seen. I have had a sore throat for about four days and then this morning I felt my ears starting to have pain. So I went to the Urgent Care, stayed about two hours (there were a lot of people and someone had to get stitches), and I learned that I had an ear infection and possible strep throat. The doctor didn’t perform a strep test. There were only two doctors there. College kids are coming back to Morgantown and there were some there today. I got an antibiotic, thank goodness, but after taking it and a nap this afternoon, I woke up with a stuffy nose. Ugh. I hate being sick. I hope this doesn’t last long. Summer colds suck. Well that’s it for now. Talk soon.

A not so good day

It’s been a while since I have posted. Mainly I just have been keeping to myself and have been trying to revive hobbies and interests and other stuff. Today my mom had her colonoscopy done. The procedure was 42 minutes (quick). The pre-op and post-op weren’t. We were there from about 10:10 to 2:00. I hardly got any sleep last night. I woke up about 4:30, ate breakfast, and had my meds then went back to bed. However, I ended up tossing and turning until about 8:40 with periods of getting up to go to the bathroom in between. I might have gone to sleep for about 30 minutes. However, that was it. I was not happy. I tried laying back down around 6:00 way after we got home and maybe got 20 minutes sleep. This is ridiculous. I hope tonight’s sleep is better. I will update you all soon.

An update

No I’m not dead. Just been lazy. Sorry I haven’t written. Just been tired lately. Well I can’t believe tomorrow is the end of the month. July is almost here. Wow. June flew by quickly. Lot’s of plans for July to come. Today, I went to speech therapy. I don’t go to physical or occupational therapy anymore, thank goodness. We then went and picked up my nephew and went to my sister’s house. I got a pleasant surprise on the way back when I found out that my mom and dad had purchased me a sewing machine. I couldn’t believe it. I’m very surprised and very happy. I’m going to purchase a few books from Amazon and educate myself on how to learn to use it. I hope to use it for basic things, but to also sew my own clothes in the future. I can’t wait to get started using it, but I’m a bit nervous as well. I really want to learn though and you have to jump in feet first if you want to learn anything. But that’s pretty much all that went on today. I won’t leave you all in the dark as long as I did last time. Have a good one.
