I’m Back! (Once again)
My family has finally left the building. For the past two weeks I have had either my mom or my grandmother with me, taking care of me, etc. It was great to have them over, they were of infinite help to me, but a little space sure is nice haha.
My family has been very concerned about my health as of late. With the seizures and extreme changes in blood pressure and pulse, I guess they have some reason to their paranoia. Still, I wish they wouldn’t worry about me. Despite being put through the ER three times in a week and then being put on a “toxic” dose of medicine on accident… I have been doing ok. I missed about two or more weeks of school, much of the time I don’t remember care of Keppra, Depakote and Ativan. Yay for perscriptions.
I haven’t seen much of Ryan during this time which has been the worst part of it all. You really don’t what you’ve got till family comes in town and it’s gone… Something like that.
Either way, a wonderfully good thing came of the visit. I came out to my mom, for the fourth (?) time. This will be the last, we talked openly and things just really seemed to work out. She understands now that it isn’t a choice, that I didn’t hide it from her/the family because I wanted to have a secret and… well, it just is no longer that big ol’ white elephant in the room.
Speaking of rooms… I have been doing some remodeling at the apartment. I have much more to do yet, new chair, new couch, new TV, new coffee table, new dining table and chairs. Once I change out all that to smaller, thinner, sleeker items, the large livingroom will appear full sized again haha.
As you can see in the top picture, I have done a little re-arranging of my workstation. I added an Epson Perfection V500 Scanner, a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, two shelves for my photography toys and a new light. The light made the biggest difference, I swear. No longer do I get down sitting at the computer, it really, and literally, brightens up my day.
You might also notice the new laptop sitting next to the iMac. Yep, I got a new Macbook Pro! It’s so wonderful, I’m using it right now to write this post! Got a stellar deal on it at the bookstore. Chase and Ryan got one each as well!
Now that I’m back to feeling better, hopefully I will be able to post more often and do more photography. First, and unfortunately, I have to catch up on my class work and make my nearly thirteen doctor appointment. Even more unfortunate is the sad story that I had to leave my job at the hospital in order to make these doctor appointments and catch up with my school work.
That means that I will be having a social life again, eventually, but also means I will be poor and won’t be able to buy all the things I’ve been wanting… Sad story!
But having friends and keeping them is more important that having fun toys, any day.
Time for bed. Going to finish the load of laundry for Ryan. He takes flight later today for Miami and then a cruise. Lucky!
