22 Jun

I’m awake and feeling awful. I’ve been in so much pain this past week, and I got pain medicine that worked today (I guess yesterday at this point) and it made me sleep all day, which was fine.

But now I’m up and in pain again, and so so nauseous. My stomach is just not happy. It’s swollen and kind of bruised looking…it’s not cute. I have a headache, and I just want to go back to sleep, but I can’t. 

I’ll probably be able to after my next dose of medication, but that’s not for a little while.

When I was sleeping, I had this weird dream about being in this huge hotel, and having to go to this guy’s room to wait for the lady to clean my room. I didn’t know this guy, and he was so confused about why I was waiting in his hotel room. I was confused about it, too. The cleaning lady and the manager also showed up to surprise his wife because it was her birthday, and they literally jumped out and scared her. She thought it was hilarious. That said, he was not too pleased about me being in his room, and it kind of went downhill from there. My dreams are weird.

Rainy Day

19 May

This is one of those times where I wish it was later so I could just go to sleep and have the day be over with. It’s still bright outside, so I feel like I can’t go to sleep just yet, but I have no interest in anything else. And it’s raining to top it all off. Today is not a good day.

I Can’t Sleep

28 Apr

Because my stomach hurts so badly, and I keep vomiting. So now I’m typing this. Also, I have CSI: Miami on. It’s like 5 AM and I slept earlier for like 2 hours. I guess my stomach had enough of that, so it woke me up.


Try To Be Alive

17 Apr

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

Ernest Hemingway

More Success?

9 Apr

I did study last night, and cleaned too! Did half of what I wanted to do of each of those things, but half of each is progress. Then, I took a shower, and made myself something to eat. I think my stomach just gets cranky whenever I eat stuff now, though, and it pretty much just either kicks it back or lets me know it’s not pleased. However, I did lots of things! I felt really accomplished. I took an Ambien early, and was about to head to bed when…COCKROACHES IN MY BED!!! EW EW EWWWW!!! They replaced my fridge, and the roaches living behind my fridge (I guess) needed a new home, so they moved into my bed. GROSS. I didn’t sleep at my apartment. My friend picked me up and I (already on the Ambien) got to her place and stayed there. I still managed to fall asleep before 11:30, so overall, the day was a huge success! Today, however…I’ve been crying all day. I failed a quiz (HARD) and people will just not cut me a break. I feel like people are just being mean to me today!

Will I Ever Sleep Again?

**The suspense is killing me! …yeah…it’s the suspense doing that.**

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.

I Got a Chuckle out of This

18 Feb

I fell asleep reviewing my notes the other day, and my hat hit the laptop. This is the result. It’s pretty accurate if I do say so myself.

No Rest for the Weary

18 Feb

I’ve been having so much trouble sleeping these past few nights. The pain is pretty out of control tonight, and last night and all of today I’ve been out of my mind nauseous. I like…can’t stop throwing up, it’s awful. Can’t sleep for more than 15 minutes without vomiting myself awake…so I’m pretty much giving up on the notion of sleep.

“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones. And when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.”
