I seriously feel about as bad as I do when going through a Crohn’s relapse. That’s fine and all, I just need time to rest and relax so that I don’t end up in the hospital. It seems like all this stuff is being piled on me right now. Some things normal, like getting paid, so I need to go grocery shopping (which kills me on a good day) and having to do my laundry (which is just not going to happen right now) my PSW coming, which is a HUGE help with cleaning up my apartment which is turning into a pig sty. It’s hard to deal with any kind of company though when you feel this terrible, bc I have to be up and moving to let her in, and let her know what I need her to do.
I also, good news of course, have JP from housing coming tomorrow morning to work on moving my shelving in the bathroom around to fit in the washer dryer set I choose. My landlord made a quick little open concept closet for extra clothes in there, and a small shelf to hold my towels, linen, etc. So it won’t be hard for JP to basically remove the closet part, and move the shelving down to the end of the wall, so the washer and dryer can sit right next to the plug and piping system. He even offered to run me over to an appliance place to look at washers and dryers, but with my PSW Lilian coming, I can’t, and to be honest I just don’t have it in me right now!
Plus, I heard from an old student of Susan my Social Service Worker, Amy, who was great, and is willing to help me finish one of the classes I was doing at Loyalist. It’s like a Prior Learning Assessment course, which I had all done almost two years ago, except for building the portfolio, before I got too sick to deal with it. So she’s coming by next week to work on it with me, and see what she did in hers when she took the class. Will be totally awesome to see her and catch up bc she’s such a great person, I just feel like it’s going to kill me to do it right now.
As well, when the student that’s with Susan right now, Alissa comes back from reading week, her and I are supposed to go out on a bus trip around town. I was thinking the Bayview Mall near my place to get Zeus a water fountain I saw at The Bargain Shop for around $14 would be something to do. I was going to have her go get cat food with me at the vets, but she’s allergic to cats. Zeus doesn’t climb around her, so it doesn’t affect her, but the vets would probably be too much to test it. Plus Zeus will need some canned food before she’s back.
I know there is even more going on, like me helping mom paint her doors and stuff, and then my tests coming up for the possible Gallbladder problems, and whatever else I just can’t think of right now, but I DO NOT feel like I can handle any of it. The tests yeah of course, bc I need to know what’s going on to feel better, but the rest I just want to scream at the thoughts of doing until after I get whatever is going on fixed.
On a nice note… which is something I’ll have to do too lol, I got a call from the G.I. doctor in Belleville finally! I go in for a meeting the doctor visit the fifth of April. So that’s good to know that I will be finally having another specialist moved from Kingston to Belleville. Then I will only have my Neurologist in Kingston, which is totally fine bc he’s awesome, and I only see him a couple times a year usually. Right now though, since my G.I.s in Kingston are the ones dealing with the sickness issue, I have to stay with them until I find out the prognosis.
Which reminds me, that I have to make an appointment with my family doctor too to get a disability form filled out, so that when I go to my appointments in Kingston, I can be refunded the gas money to pay to my mom or Grams, or whoever has to take me. HUGE help!
If I’m not online much in the next month, or not home much, don’t worry, it’s just me trying to rest when I get the chance too. Feel free to e-mail, etc. and I will try to stay in touch with everyone as much as I can.
PS I noticed tonight my tomato plants are slowly starting to pop up! YAY!
