Always sick...

Sorry for the lack of postings lately. I've been having a rough week, and it's only Tuesday! Saturday I spent the first half of the day at the hospital visiting my roommate after her appendectomy. Then I went to visit with the family. Sunday I hung out in my pajamas all day. I made that sesame chicken for dinner and it was pretty good. I took pictures, I'll write that post later. Monday I got up to go to work and I felt ok until halfway to work I started feeling sick and when I got off the train I started feeling that faint feeling and as I rode the escalator to the street I thought I might die and then once I got to street level I had to sit down on the sidewalk so that I wouldn't pass out. Again. WTF?! So I collected myself and walked up to my office and told my Dad what happened. I made a few calls to the doctors and made an appointment for tomorrow afternoon and then headed home. Now that I'm on immune suppressants who knows what's going to happen. I was always sick before and now? So frustrating. I'm getting some pain in my face, head and neck, I'm afraid it's my wisdom tooth so I'm making an appointment to go back to the oral surgeon. I had one out about 3 years ago and I was supposed to go back a year later to get the other 2 checked out but never did. And now I really need to but the office is closed today. I also have lost about 5 or 6 pounds since like Sunday which is good but it's a pretty good indication that coming off the steroids cold turkey is probably what's making me feel so miserable. I've lost a lot of water weight in the past few days and we all know that that is what leads to my fainting spells. So anyway, after all that, I'm home today resting up again. I need the time off. Hopefully I'll be feeling better soon. And hopefully I won't spend the entire winter being sick.

hey jen... sorry to hear you're feeling crappy! and 5-6 lbs in just a few days?! that's probably not good.. although I know you want to loose the steroid weight, but that seems unhealthy :(

can you get to the doctor any sooner!?! keep us posted...
