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!

It’s been a while . . .

It’s been a while since I’ve written . . . its been a while since i’ve done anything for me. My life for the past few weeks has been devoted to sleeping, paying bills, and work. . . such a drag. When I do go out I’m completely exhausted. I wish I could say, “At least I’m healthy!” . . . . . .but my immune system is no good! In the past 2 months I have had a case of food poisoning, UTI, and recently my 3rd cold of this… Read more It’s been a while . . .

You never know …

I have been living in my apartment for the past 4 months and what I’ve told many of my friends is that I wish I could just move my apartment, because my neighbors drive me crazy. Neighbors across the hall have too many visitors and smoke a lot!. And the older  woman that lives above is always moving furniture late at night and early in the morning. I’ve only spoken to her once before bumping into her today. I walked to my door and she stopped to say hi, I felt… Read more You never know …

A year ago . . .

I just realized exactly a year ago today I was in the hospital. Around this time last year was the evening of my 4th day in the hospital. I was hoping and wishing to be discharged soon. Lucky for me I was discharged the next day . . and haven’t been back since thank God! *fingers crossed* A year ago I was afraid to eat and didn’t see anything wrong with not eating for a day or two. Not eating meant no pain, no 10-20 trips to the bathroom, I felt normal… Read more A year ago . . .

Demand RESPECT . . .

When you’re sick you would expect out of all people your doctor would be the most compassionate, but it’s not always the case.  As a patient you spend so much of your time and money to seek professional help to get healthy, but then you start to realize your illness is just a paycheck for some. How disturbing and disrespectful! So . . . since they view your illness and regular appointments as transactions, well I need to view them as a business too.  I am taking time out of… Read more Demand RESPECT . . .

GI is sweating . .

I received two responses to the stern message I sent to my GI’s office. The first response was from the PA who stated, I have forwarded your concerns to Dr. F. and he will see you from now on for treatment. Thank you!! No offense to PAs out there, but I wasn’t paying money to see a PA. Then I received two responses from my GI, and he started the first message soo well!! “Hi Crystal”, thanks for spelling my name wrong! lol But I can’t be mad, when I… Read more GI is sweating . .
