Hi everyone, just wanted to make an update.
So the past couple days have been relatively okay. Just a few complaints. My mouth is so dry. I've been using the biotene products, but it's not helping as much as I want it to. It's so dry it hurts and I have the most awful taste in my mouth. And the nausea, probably from the pain medicines, and there's this heartburn that won't go away. It's getting more and more intense. It was just an inconvenient gurgle at first, but now it's like the pits of hell are rumbling up through my insides. I've been in my bed for most of the time...probably too many hours out of each day. I need to get up and do stuff, I think. I'm pretty sure it's the depression. Maybe the fact that I'm always exhausted and always sleeping. But otherwise, not too bad.
On a happier note, my little brother got a new cell phone, and it's lime green, so now we can text each other pictures and we can just...text more. So that is good. My dad and I had a good talk yesterday. My pain meds are working pretty well. I've made a classical music playlist that I like to listen to sometimes, and it's just kind of relaxing. I also really like that song Royals by Lorde. My dad is doing fantastically well, still having dry mouth. He has to drink water and swish it around in his mouth when he eats food so that he can swallow it. But other than that, he's doing fantastically. So, yeah, that's my update.
