I'm having a bad day

I haven't written in here in some time. I've been depressed. Fortunately, I'm feeling better. I need to know how to raiise funds quickly. I need the rent by next Wednesday, and I don't know where I'm going to get the money. Sign in to see full entry.

I'm doing better, thank you

I feel much better than I have in a while. I have a doctor appointment set up for Monday. Garfield doesn't like it one bit. Sign in to see full entry.

I'm doing fine, thanks

Today is one of my better days. I do not feel depressed, and the nausea I have been experiencing is abating somewhat. I plan on tuning in to the Jerry Lewis telethon this weekend. For several years, I worked as a volunteer answering phones and taking pledges. I enjoyed the social aspects of the volunteer work tremendously. I also believe in what the Muscular Dystrophy Association is doing in terms of both clinical research and funding actual patient care. They have taken some heat in the past...

Oh, toilet, you are my only friend

I have been battling nausea the past few days. Every once in a while, I will get spells where I will eat breakfast, feel nauseous, then vomit. It's something I experienced as an undergraduate; after a few hours of not eating and taking it easy, I'm usually fine. The problem is that this time, the nausea is sticking around, although I am able to hold down food and even seem to others to be eating heartily. I like to think that my doctors are in denial as to my true clinical condition. The thing... Sign in to see full entry.

Hello again

I am extremely worried about myself. My appetite has gone downhill, and I'm worried that my remarkable recovery was for nothing. It seems as if I am not allowed to do anything around here. What's the point of recovering if I have nothing to do? Yesterday was my daughter's 24th birthday. Time has certainly flown. Seems like only yesterday that she was being diapered; now she's changing my diapers until I find an explanation for my incontinence. We also took my husband to the doctor yesterday....

I deserve better than this

I live in a cramped, roach-infested apartment with no hope of moving any time soon, unless we are evicted due to nonpayment of rent. That looked likely until we handed our landlord a good chunk of what we owe him. What depresses me is that there is someone with valuable information for my husband - yet I fear that he will not contact her because she is politically conservative. My husband has always been liberal, thinking that a paying job (if I had one) would lead to personal fulfillment for me... Sign in to see full entry.

Will it ever dry out around here?

This morning, we had storms so severe that the power went out for more than an hour. The reason why it was that long was that it took me some time to dig up the land line - the corded phone we use only during power failures because the cordless one doesn't work during power outages. The upshot is that we got more rain than we needed, yet again. Perhaps one day it'll dry out around here. Garfield has already gone into some detail about my inability to use the litter box appropriately. I have... Sign in to see full entry.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

I went to post-transplant clinic yesterday. So far, things are going along very well, although I wish my doctors would snap out of denial about my blood chemistry. My kidney-related numbers are elevated to the point where I have taken measures to prevent further damage to the kidney, such as watching my diet to avoid excess protein and phosphorus. Potassium is not a problem just yet, as I take water pills which drain the potassium out of my system so much that I have to have it supplemented. We... Sign in to see full entry.

Do I have hair left?

We just talked to our landlord, who appreciated the size of the check we offered him. Wave legitimately-earned money in front of anyone's face, and I'll bet you'll get a very happy response. Garfield has been extremely worried about the entire family of late. She won't let any one of us out of her sight, which is starting to get annoying. I think she's trying to get me to start up her book again; she really enjoys writing. I've been reading a great deal about the mortgage crisis of late. It... Sign in to see full entry.

I've been doing some serious thinking today. Last night, my husband talked about theweek I was unconscious and needing a ventilator to breathe. They were within hours of pulling the plug when I became responsive. My point in bringing this topic up is this. Although the nurses who cared for me knew full well that I had the capacity to recover, the doctors held out little hope for my recovery. My husband was writing my obituary and calling the anatomical gift society to which I'm donating my body... Sign in to see full entry.
