Sadly, not very much has been going on around these parts! Dealing with the landlady and fighting her for every fucking repair. It's fucked when you know you could go to the health department but then you'd have nowhere to live. I'm trying to be assertive but sweet with a side of thankful. That woman is dancing on my last nerve!
I'm going to get the health crap out of the way and
then, god willing, update more regularly!
I've been diagnosed as having ADD.
My psychiatrist is having me take Vyvanse. It was
approved a year ago and he says it's better than Adderall. No crash
and way fewer side effects. Also it stays in your bloodstream and
builds as opposed to take pill BOOM high. He called it “Adderall's
big brother.” So we'll see how it goes. The last few days on it
have been noticeably different. I find myself focusing on things
fully and feeling calmer and more optimistic. It's weird.
But in a completely wonderful way.
I've been having MASSIVE mystery
bruising for the last month or so. I'm talking bruises on my legs
the size of my hands. As well as large and small ones on thighs and
arms. I finally went to the doctor and he tested my iron levels as
well as b12, cholesterol, vitamins, thyroid, etc. And except for low
vitamin D, they all came back as normal. No answers. I'm supposed
to keep an eye on it and if it's still occurring in three months, go
back in. My guess is it's poor circulation due to lethargy, which
just gives me further reason to start moving my body more.
Speaking of crippling agony, I think I'm going to get
an injection at the pain doctor's office. They do epidurals and
nerve blockers so I'm going to start with the former. I'm trying to
contain my excitement until I find out whether it works or not!
Aiming to get that done next month. Fingers crossed!
In miraculous and non-health related news, I was actually social four nights
in a week! That's some impressive shit for me! I had amazing sex
(honestly, the best I've ever had) and I got my
kink on and I went to a Super
Bowl party (where I just had a few drinks, dodged the dudes all up on
my jock, and attempted to follow along.) Look at me leaving the
house and interacting with flesh and blood humans! I had a
friend-date with an awesome lady. We're in the same social circle
and have chatted at the bar but she suggested we hang out and, yay,
we did so. I'm really not good at knowing how to take a minor
acquaintanceship and turn it into a friendship. But I'm trying!
The fact that I was able to focus enough to write this entry makes me super happy. And determined to keep it up!
