Thursday's Child ... has far to go ...

  • Mood:


Have I ever expressed how much I HATE this godawful, stupid, embarrassing disease?  I am referring to my damn ulcerative colitis (with a touch of Crohn's Disease thrown in for good measure).  Days like today, I seriously wonder if this is some sort of nightmarish karmic payback, or WTF?

I have been trying everything I can think of, for the past MONTH, to stave off a visit to the gastroenterologist.  I have been watching my diet, increasing the fluids, taking my supplements - every little thing - to keep from dehydrating or ending up with an inflammation.  I think I might have failed.

For the past week, I've been feeling lethargic, achy, and completely miserable.  The amount of time spent in THAT room of the house has increased too.  I started swilling down applesauce this week but, in a moment of sheer stupidity, forgot the bananas and the Powerade that might have REALLY helped.  AND went slightly over the budget, consequently leaving little money for gas for the assorted vehicles that needed to go places this week.  I don't want to end up in ER.  I DO NOT want to incur the damn $30 for the office visit, nor do I want to spend the damn $40/month on the stupid pills.  We are falling further behind as it is... this would make it that much worse, fast!

I know I'm just blowing off steam because I AM tired and achy.  I know this WILL blow over.  It always does, so it follows that it should this time, right?  Who knows?  Maybe this is just another part of that idiotic hormonal crap that some women go through before they become... *GASP* CRONES!  Maybe the hormones are having an adverse effect on the rest of the system.  I have no freakin' clue.  All I know is that I don't like it, not one little bit.

Ok, I'm done bitching for now.  I'm sure, when my sweet, caring son gets home from work tomorrow (after stopping at a store on his way home, just for mom), I'll be feeling much better.  Have I mentioned lately what a terrific kid he is??  He's 18 years old, working, going to school, and keeping up with the never-ending automobile chores... he's a DOLL.  And offering, of his own volition, to stop after a full day at work, just for me - a mom can't ask for more, can she?  I doubt it greatly!
