This has been one of those weeks where I wish I were a bear and could go into hibernation.
Talk about being kicked when you're down. I am so beyond frustrated, and annoyed, and overwhelmed that I don't know what to do with myself. I've been trying different tactics to get rid of any of the stress-energy I have. And by energy, I mean those short bursts of panic in between the random narcolepsy that has been plaguing me these past few days. I've tried cleaning different rooms in the house from top to bottom. (Moving very carefully.) I've tried reading, and knitting, and drinking all different types of tea. Occasionally I'll sit down on the couch and just crash for an hour or two. I've had to limit the physical things due to tearing my brand-spanking-new scar tissue a few days ago, so that's been fun. Absolutely nothing is good enough.
I shouldn't say that. The love and support and countless hugs I am getting from my husband are helping more than anything. I am so glad that he is able to hold it together in times of crisis at home, because I am completely useless. I lose my sh*t when it comes to anything going wrong with my family. The tough Marine facade is crumbling into a heaping pile of snot and tears.
Sorry if I just flung myself off that pedestal you had me perched on.
I am giving birth to a bouncing baby gallstone this week!
I am so beyond ecstatic about the doctors actually finding what could be the cause of most of my complaints...SO.BEYOND.ECSTATIC. I literally almost wept tears of joy when the ultrasound tech showed me the picture. It looked like a giant pearl sitting in my gallbladder.
I felt such pride.
I'll be having the whole damn contraption removed this coming week, and hopefully all of these stupid symptoms go away with it!
I can't wait to feel well again. I can't wait to eat. OMG. I think that's what I've missed the most over the past few months...the ability to think about food without becoming instantly nauseous.
Mother and wife by day, psych RN by night. So many different ways to view life. I try to take everything in and be very slow to judge.
