Tonsils Takedown Round 2!

It’s round 2, I’m backed against the ropes, bruised and exhausted . . . sighs . . Last Wednesday I felt so much better that I stupidly went to work for a half day, but I felt good! Slept well, throat wasn’t sore, I was happy. When I left work, I went to the grocery store, cooked a pot-roast with potatoes and cleaned my kitchen, by 9pm I was tired. As I sat on the couch watching TV I started itching; immediately thinking it was stress and I thought it… Read more Tonsils Takedown Round 2!

Can I have a drink? Of course! :)

I just realized that I have not had a cup of coffee or a beer in two years! That’s so crazy!! But, I have become a “wine connoisseur” lately, it doesn’t bother my gut. In addition to vodka and gin, wine is one alcoholic drink that does not make me violently ill. I have discovered a new pastime, Winery Day Trips! I’ve been to 4 since July. It’s low energy, good time with friends, and bougie as hell and I love it! lol  It’s one of the few times when I am relaxing… Read more Can I have a drink? Of course! 🙂

Roommate drama is at an all time high. Crazy roommate want to leave a month early and expected us to find a replacement. Who’s going to move into an apartment for one month in February?!?!

Me and the other roommate tried to have a civil conversation with crazy girl to explain how silly she was acting, she was not having it and said things that would involve her “lawyer”. After that conversation things really haven’t gotten any… Read more I attract crazy . . .

Remission it is!!

I walked into the endoscopy center nervous  and exhausted. Only having two hours of sleep, and a meal of chicken broth and jello the day before, I just wanted to get it over with. I was called to the back and the nurse that greeted me gave me a big smile which eased my nerves. After signing some paperwork and changing into a gown I laid in the bed while she was preparing the IV. Out of the blue she said to me”You’re so brave, my daughter who’s 26 is just… Read more Remission it is!!

Tomorrow is the big day . . .

I have my colonoscopy tomorrow which holds my future. I should not allow this procedure to hold such power, but I really need 2016 to be different . . . I put on a good face as always but I’m tired of faking that I’m so much happier lately feeling better  . . i’m not. And I feel like this illness has trapped me this past year. I was ready to quit my job and just move, anywhere . . can’t do that when you have a chronic illness and… Read more Tomorrow is the big day . . .
