I’m in the tunnel known as final projects week in school. Â I’ll be able to regain some sense of normalcy after the 5th of May when I take the last test for the two classes I’m in right now. Â I am going to be taking a summer class but it’s online and should allow for a little bit of flexibility. Â I know I bitch about school a lot but that’s pretty much how life it. Â What else is a blog good for if you can’t complainÂ incessantlyÂ about how horrible your life is? Â Hahaha.
My headaches have been on and off lately. Â Since coming off of verapamil the frequency has evened out to 2-3 a week that require NSAIDs but they’ve been shitty ones. Â I think the benefit of having a clear mind far outweighs the headaches. Â The antiseizure medications really put me in a cloud of confusion and that doesn’t work too well in school when you’re giving presentations every other week. Â My body told me in other ways it didn’t like the meds including digestive issues if you get my drift. Â There’s nothing like being confused and getting cramps all the time. Â Fun times, seriously.
I can’t remember if I mentioned it before (and I’m too lazy to look back at my entries) if I talked about my dad being in the hospital. Â He was having chest pains when doing shoveling and ended up going into the hospital for observation and multiple tests. Â They delayed the catheterization procedure twice because he had the flu. Â In the end, he has 30% blockage in a smaller artery which they’re going to treat with meds. Â No other reason was given for the symptoms. Â I really think it’s his management of his diabetes that’s the underlying issue for the health problems. Â Being on pills for diabetes and being overweight would be an indicator I would want an endochronoligist (sp?). Â He feels his crack-head family doctor is good enough and he knows how to manage his diabetes better than any doctor. Â This coming from the man that eats a piece of cake and takes an extra pill to “make up for it.” Â Stupid parents.Â
