This is going to come out as a huge whine. My apologies, in advance.
Yesterday was the first day of the sememster, and I taught four classes. I came home and slept for three hours. Felt like I had been hit by a truck. Currently, I live alone, since my partner and I live in seperate cities due to work. Even after I slept last night, I still feel horribly achy, and confused.
I went to the Gastro today for my Colitis. I had a terrible gastro for the past two years where I used to live... so I haven't reqly been examined for some time. He, of course, wants me to get a colonoscopy. No biggie, I expected that, but it does wear me out terribly. However, since I do not have anyone at home, and no family and/friends in this new location (I just moved here about 6 months ago), I will need to take a cab to the hospital, have the procedure, and then stay at the hospital all day until they release me, and then I can take a cab home. Due to the anesthesia, they do not allow people to either drive or be alone for six hours or so after the procedure.
ARRGGHH. So, not only do I get to do the prep (AKA joy juice) alone, be on a liquid diet for 24 hours, but I also am to be stuck in the hospital for ten or so hours....
I am so very tired of having no support system in place. I am pretty self-reliant, but there are times when it gets to be too Much. Last fall, when I somehow or other caught MRSA (the moster super infection that does not respond to antibiotics), I had to try to find someone ANYONE to come to my house and feed my cat. My partner was about tot ake the day off, drive down here (three and a half hours) feed the cat, and drive back. I, of course, was in isolation and wouldn't be allowed to see anyone.
How do people manage? It is getting harder and harder for me.... whine whine whine, pity.
