It has been a long week. I have had lots of homework to catchup on, lots of unpacking left to do, Lucy started preschool at her NEW preschool, we have had a lot of other things going on- just enough to make me feel like I am going to lose it at any moment.
I got through it though- one day at a time, fighting the little battles. I think that my MS is on the bad end of normal right now- and I am sure that it is due to the stress of the new house and new medication. I had the joy of having that damn colonoscopy last week...and as my luck would have it, I had the HOTTEST colonoscopy doctor EVER. When he walked in the room, I said, "Can you please get an ugly doctor, this one is too cute to be dealing with my colon." As professional as he could be, he said something like, "Don not worry you wont remember a thing," To which I responded, "I do not want to forget someone as cute as you!" and then I think they knocked me out.
13 biopsies later, they found no reason why I have been so sick.
So Monday I go in for my 2nd dose of Tysabri...I am not sure how happy I am about that, I feel a little hopeless about my MS.
I am in a funk right now, I am aware of it - things have been pretty tough around here. I went to school with Lucy today for her preschool screening. The person who was doing the testing brought me into the office to go over the results and she asked if I had any concerns because they thought that Lucy was doing great. I told her about the medical situation, that Lucy has been the person that is taking the best care of me, I told her about Lucy witnessing the guy attack me and Ford in our backyard in Minneapolis and how she still has nightmares about that...the woman asked if she could hug me - and I completely fell apart. I think that it was the first time that someone has hugged me, without me initiating it. My kids hug me all day long, not to say that their hugs are less important, but to have an adult reach out to me really touched me. Terry is not affectionate and I wish that he was. It is hard to go through what I am dealing with on a daily basis and not have someone reach out and WANT to touch me or hug me. A hug really makes a bad day feel better, for me at least.
I am not trying to feel sorry for myself, but I think I am allowed to vent (especially on a keyboard) moving to this new town, I do not know anyone! I feel like I am getting to vent when I use this blog. Lord knows that my husband will never be reading this.
I met a really nice couple today that live in town and they actually gave me their phone # so we could get together. That was a really good part of my day. I am feeling isolated and I hate that my source of connections with people are the people that work in the hospital that I get treatments at.
Garage Sale tomorrow- I want everything in my house sold- I want to start fresh!
Idea* (pay attention people, I don't get good ideas but every once in a while) WHY DON'T WE REGISTER FOR GIFTS FOR AFTER WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR A WHILE- i HATE THE THINGS THAT i CHOSE WHEN i GOT MARRIED. I WANT NEW THINGS- NEW POTS AND PANS, NEW TOWELS, SHEETS THAT MY KIDS HAVE NOT THROWN UP ON! I SHOULD START A NEW TREND- AN EIGHT YEAR ANNIVERSARY REGISTRY FOR HOUSEHOLD GIFTS.
I know that sounds greedy- but I did not know what I doing when I got married, I jsut did what the wedding magazines tell you to do- start a registry. I had no clue- I still don't.
