I had to go to my Gastrologist today. I have Ulcerative Colitis. I have had it since the age of about 18. This was a scary time for me as I didn't know what was the matter with me. I lived on my own, didn't have a relationship with any of my parents. So I had to go and get all the tests by myself (well that isn't totally true, my boyfriend, now hubby was with me). And because I probably looked about 14yrs old, none of the doctors or nurses told me anything, guess they thought my parents were with me.
During one test I got so mad I refused to cooperate until I talked to the doctor. I'll tell you the nurses weren't to happy. But the doctor explained what was going on and why I needed these tests.
One time when I had to go to the hospital as I was so sick. A stupid doctor said there was nothing wrong with me, I had hemorrhoids. Seriously!?!? I would love to see that old fart and tell him a thing or two.
Well anyway, my doctor told me today that I should be taking my medication all the time. I only take it when it is active, or I have a flare up. I soooo hate taking medication.
Because of my moms addiction to prescription pills, I think it is a weakness to take medication. I know this is silly, and I get mad at others if they don't take their perscribed medication. But to me I feel it is a weakness for me to take meds. Well I will start because he said it could spread and get really bad if I don't'. Urrggg guess I have to bite the bullet.
See I told you I was the runt of the litter. LOL
Onto some fun things. I got my blog candy from Twyla. http://twylasheart.blogspot.com/
It is the end of the month tomorrow and I have some goals I wanted completed.
One was to finish a book a month. Well I am not quite finished my book. Guess I will be reading tomorrow. I planned on reading it while waiting for the doctor. But I ran into my Friend/Sister Shirley. I have known Shirley since I was about 5 or 6. Actually she lived with us, some of her brothers did too. Her dad was a single dad, him and my dad worked together. They had a lot of shutdown jobs out of town. So when they went out of town to work Shirley stayed with us. I loved it she was like an older sister I didn't have. Imagine your best friend living with you, how much fun is that.
Ashley had an interview today for a year internship. She was so nervous. She said as they asked her the questions she didn't know what her mouth was doing. She said the answers were in her head but her mouth didn't agree LOL. She probably did fine. Hopefully she gets it, if not oh well there will be better and bigger things out there for her.
I worked a bit on my nephew's mini. I will start to tape a tutorial on it tomorrow. Lets see if it will be published though, because if it doesn't turn out, no one will ever see it LOL.
Tomorrow is a day off school for Kristy. So I am hopefully going to sleep in, Catch up on my work, work on the mini, and get ready to scrapbook with my SIL. Oh ya and finish reading my book. Maybe I should scrap the sleeping in part....nah.
Hope your Thursday was a creative one.
