It’s Decided

25 Aug

After talking with my hospice home health nurse, it’s decided that I’m going to get TPN, hydration, and IV antibiotics from my apartment when she visits in addition to the blood draws, physical therapy, and personal care help. I’ll also get remote monitoring of vital signs since I’m a “high hospitalization risk” patient or ‘client’…whatever they want to call me. Then, I’m also going to get a volunteer that comes out to help me with other things around the apartment and takes me to chemo and stuff. That will be much needed. It’s still a little embarrassing to me personally…just needing all of this extra help, but if it helps me get through this without having to move back home, so be it.

Weird.

25 Aug

I have a cousin that is basically throwing her life away. She’s smart, but she’s not using it. She’s not talking to family anymore, she keeps getting pregnant, and she’s in and out of relationships with men that are no good for her. I love her and all, and I wish she would move back home.

I had a dream that she helped me with my fashion sense/wardrobe, clean my apartment, kill roaches, do laundry and dishes, and get my life together. Then we ate corn dogs and peas. Weird.

I also had a dream that was too detailed to even try to write about.

I’m Back

12 May

Sorry I’ve been gone, I haven’t been feeling well. I wound up staying with my brother’s godmother for a few days, but then my dad came up to take care of me, so I’m back at my apartment now. He cleaned my whole apartment for me! I’m happy to see him. My little brother went to prom with his gf. So cute! I’ll update with more stuff later. Still not feeling great.

Also, Happy Mother’s Day!

How To/How Not To Help

17 Dec

Don’t just say “let me know if you need anything” or “call me whenever you need anything” or any variation of this. Chances are that I won’t. You should be direct and specific. If you’re going to the store or something, say “I’m going to the store right now, do you need anything?” Chances are, I’ll probably need a few things. Bring me some food (check what I can and can’t eat, first) or offer to help me clean my apartment. Don’t expect that I can go out anywhere with you, because I probably won’t have that kind of energy. If you want to just “talk” because I seem upset, then talking about all the things that make me upset, and telling me what you think I should do probably won’t make me any less upset. You’re probably just going to stress me out. That’s all. I know you’re just trying to help, and I hate to complain about something as great and thoughtful as that, but that’s just how I feel.
