Monkey Business

24 Feb

So I’m about to complain hardcore in this paragraph…feel free to skip to the next one if you’d like lol.
My body aches, my head is pounding (worst headache ever of my life), and it’s been difficult to get my eyes to focus properly. My hands and feet are pretty much just on fire. I’ve been really sleepy, but for some reason…I can’t really sleep very well. I can sleep, but it’s restless sleep, if that makes any sense. My stomach is hurting really badly, but on the left, not the right. That kinda makes me nervous cuz they said to look out for signs of splenomegaly and stuff, so I’m hoping it’s just on that side, but nothing like…spleen related. It’s probably nothing, and I’m being paranoid because they said something…that happens. My shoulder kinda hurts when I breathe, but if I take really small breaths, it doesn’t hurt so badly. Ok, I’ll stop for now X_X

Soo…I decided to try to be more productive and watch videos that explain some stuff for school…maybe passively learn some of the material. I mean it’s like watching a movie, right? But to cover more material, I played it on double speed, which was funny to listen to. It made me laugh just to listen to his voice that fast and watch how fast he was writing on the board. I don’t know why I found it so funny, but it was funny for like an hour! He also compared connective tissue cells to monkeys and the extracellular matrix to a jungle and kept that metaphor going for a while. That helped make it even funnier. He kept calling it “monkey business.” So that worked ok for the first hour, but after that…I just couldn’t make myself care enough to pay attention. Oh well, at least I got a good laugh out of it.

I had a lollipop! It tasted weird and kinda made me drool (shh, don’t tell people that)…but it was really pretty! Before I ate it.

    Hi! You write like me! I love it. I had to read about the complaining paragraph haha! Does it hurt if you like take a big breathe (haha haven’t we heard that a million times in the dr office) but does it hurt on your left side? Mine has been like that since november now. Mine was my spleen though but I haven’t had a CT or PET scan in a while so not sure if its spleen or what but has hurt like crazy on the left side there at times even when I’m laughing which gets annoying. Just curios. Feel better šŸ™‚
