My Friends...

Sep 22, 2009 - 2 comments

I have so much missed my friends here!  So sorry I've been away for so long!  I've been sick, and while I'm still not feeling much better I am definitely going to try to put in much more of an effort to visit more frequently.  It really is helpful to have the understanding, and support of friends going through similar life situations.  I'm certain that anyone here can understand that.

I fainted this morning...  Prior to that I had slept more than twenty-four hours!  Through medication, and everything!  I hadn't even realized until my mother woke me.  (Apparently I hadn't been answering my phone...)  I woke confused, unaware that an entire day had gone by.  I had crashed hard the day before...  With a drop in blood pressure, and vomiting.  So when I fell asleep, I guess I just didn't feel much like waking up.  Still, it was kind of odd.

It's been like this for a while now...  I honestly cannot wait for summer to come to an end.  The heat is just too much, and I'm dying for an IV.  It's silly really, who would want a needle in their arm?  I'm thirsty though, and I would just love to have some liquid going in that didn't feel inclined to come back up minutes later.  Actually, I've been debating a hospital visit for IVs, but I'd have to go through the ER because I don't have a script.  I don't really want to go that route.  It would be too much trouble for whoever I asked to take me.  Instead I guess I'll suffer through it at home.  I can mange, I have thus far.  Besides, summer is almost over.  Still, days like these make me wish for a PICC/PORT, or the appropriate medical training to start my own line.  All I want is salt water...  (Sodium Chloride).  *sigh*

I'm just about falling asleep, so I haven't much more to write at the moment.  I will try to post more often in the communities though.  I simply must be able to wake up, and use my brain.

Hally I am sad to hear you are feeling so unwell, you are not alone and we are all thinking of you x

I am sure that a member of your family or a friend would not mind taking you to the ER if they new how ill you felt x Please do not suffer anymore than you have to.

Honey, go get an IV!  Your friends and family would be really mad if they knew you weren't asking for help when you need it!
