I woke up in the middle of the night last night throwing up. It might of been the morphine or the gravol or the robaxacet. Who knows.

I hate throwing up, it is one of the worst feelings I can think of. My dog lily got up with me and sat by the bathtub watching me. It's nice to have her company.

I am on painkillers because of a bleed I am having in my shoulder. I bleed can occur in a joint or a muscle. Blood pools in that area and irriates the muscles and nerves and causes pain.

It has been 10 months since I've had a blood transfusion (the longest i've ever went in my life) so I shouldn't complain. But being in pain isn't great either. The morphine makes me drowsy and if I don't take it the pain becomes unbearable so it's lose lose.

I am at my Dads house for the night. I am sleeping over because my fiance is out of town working and neither one of them really wants me home by myself when I am in pain like this.

I am so lucky that I have people who care about me and help take care of me, but at the same time I wish I was out doing the normal things a 26 year old would do, like work full time, or raise a family.

For the time being my doctor has recommened that I only work part time. It sounds great right? Its not, its fustrating to be working at a cofffee shop, to not be using my degree and to only have half my normal income.

I do enjoy sleeping in and I have been a lot healthier since the switch to part time work, but my confidence has taking a huge hit.

I guess at some point I may go back to full time we'll see how it goes.

Rather than feel sorry for myself I'm going to go torment my dad!

  1. Remember sweetheart it's not that you can't do all of those things right now plus a few more because you don't want to or you're lazy, that's ridiculous! It's that your body won't allow it right now. It's amazing that you went 10 months with a transfusion Ryanne, don't lose confidence in your ability to be the whirlwind of activity we all know you are. You kick ass! don't forget it! I wish with all of my heart that you're feeling better soon :)Love you
