Seeing Sara Evans
Sara Evans is coming to a casino near me and my sister got tickets for me and a free room so we can spend the night. It will be the first time seeing her. I’ve been listening to her music all day. She has a sweet voice. One of my favorite songs of hers is this
I had therapy today. She wants me to find a support group so I emailed someone at MGH in bereavement. We talked about the grief and how it is affecting me. I told her I have had bouts of suicidality. She didn’t ask for plans or specifics so I just let it go.
Tomorrow will be a month that my mother has been gone. My sister showed me a video today of her being silly. I miss her so much. I was looking at her unmade bed and just doesn’t seem right. I think I am going to make her bed just so that it doesn’t irk me so much. Tomorrow I need to go to the bank to unlock her account. I don’t know why the bank did that when my sister and I are on the account, too.
My pcp finally got back to me about my testosterone level. It is on the high side so will recheck it in a couple months. I knew I got it drawn too early but I didn’t want to trek back to the hospital a couple days later. I seem to be going there every few days anyway with the fluid in my chest. It is getting better though. I have to go back next week to get it checked again. I had to put more money on my tpass for the month. I also put some funds on my Starbucks card. Maybe I will go to the Square more for some lattes.
I got some food stuck in my tooth when I was eating lunch so I brushed my teeth. I used a new toothbrush because the one I had is more than 3 months old. Still stings when I don’t see my mother’s toothbrush in the cup. Little things like that just make the grief worse.
I took a fall yesterday. I tripped over the top step on my front porch. I thought I hurt just my left knee but today both knees hurt. I also have a headache. I keep getting these sharp pains in my head. I don’t know what they are about. I’ve had them since I was in the hospital. Every so often they come back. Today has been one of those days. I took some ibuprofen but it doesn’t seem to help it. It isn’t migraine activity as my migraine med doesn’t do anything to relieve the headache. I don’t know what it is. I keep meaning to message the doc but it is so infrequent that I forget to mention it.
