I think this should be day 12 of Blogtober and I haven’t posted in three or four days. I think I am going to end blogtober this year on this shitty note because it’s consuming so much of my time when I should be focusing on school and sleep and work. I know I was so set out to do this and so adiment about completing the challenge like I have in years prior but life be lifing right now and that’s just not in the cards.
Uhhh… why I have been gone. I had to go to ER on Monday because I was bleeding (wasn’t my period) and had very severe abdominal, pelvic, and kidney/flank/back pain. Of course why I went, I followed orders from not one, but two different urgent cares to go to ER because they couldn’t do the proper tests. But what I didn’t know is that this hospital’s computer systems were down and I waited six hours to get the results of a blood test and urine test. When I was finally seen by a doctor, she said I needed a pelvic ultrasound but it would be quicker to get one outpatient than through the ER and I would have to wait in the waiting room. So I said “discharge me” and got the IV out of my arm and that was that.
Now mind you, at that point I was awake for over 24 hours because I did a 12 hour shift the day before and went to the hospital right after work. I drove home and slept all night and all afternoon.
It is now Wednesday and I work tonight at 11pm. I am definitely bringing my heater blanket to help with the back spasms. I haven’t been out of pain since Sunday night. It was bad enough for my clients to notice that I didn’t look well at all. But the obvious stuff was ruled out like pregnancy and STI’s so that’s good at least.
Tomorrow, Thursday, I have an eye appointment at 8:30am and then right after that I have my primary care appointment to follow up from the ER. I am supposed to get a pelvic ultrasound but I am not sure what else my doctor will order. Plus I need a medication follow up anyways so that will be good … hopefully.
I am somewhat behind in school but all I can do now is pick up the pieces and move forward. I want to just fail but failure is not an option. I gotta get on this homework or else I won’t pass this quarter and all this time and money and effort would have been wasted. Which no one wants.
I’m gonna wrap this one up and until next time, friends.
