Live our lives out loud
I had therapy yesterday and we talked about my leap of inquiring about going back to college to earn my degree. My therapist was like that is optimistic. I didn’t think it was just future planning on my part. We spent the session talking about that and getting my sex changed on my birth certificate. We also talked about using skills for the week when I become anxious about the intrusive memories/delusions that I had.
I received an email from UMass/Boston about returning to the university. All I need to do is reapply and give a personal statement. I guess the next step is to go down to the financial aid office and see what they can offer me to finish my degree.
I saw my pcp today. She increased my BP meds and she said that she would get my sex change on my birth certificate notarized in two weeks or so. She did order blood work today to see how my kidneys and potassium is doing.
I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke up around 0230 with another headache, which I failed to mention to my pcp. I slept on and off until my med alarm went off. I took my meds and then went back to sleep, waking up a few minutes before I had to leave to catch the bus. I got dressed quickly and just grabbed my headphones and sunglasses. It was bright today. After my appointment, I went to the pharmacy and then to Starbucks for a mocha. I came home wicked tired.
I took out some chicken but it isn’t going to thaw for dinner tonight. I think I am going to make grilled cheese and have tomato soup with it. I fell in love with the tomato soup in the hospital. I would order it for lunch and dinner. It was pretty good.
I need half and half so been making a grocery list of things. Got a bunch of veggies this time around for my mother. I want to make Shepard’s pie so I ordered the stuff for it. My mother usually has some as I keep it basic.
I am so fricken tired. I think I am going to take my meds early and go to bed. I am having a hard time staying awake. I don’t have anything else planned for the week. I am hoping the visiting nurse will see me for the last time tomorrow morning. Then I can start PT without problems next week.
