Back At It...Almost

School is fast approaching. I move back in September 6, and classes start September 8. This semester I am taking six classes and will have a job for 8-10 hours a week. I'm a little nervous about this course load, so hopefully I can handle it.

I'm living in an alcohol free dorm next semester because although I am 21 and have had alcohol, I have very limited patience for people who are drunk and so I am just choosing to hopefully be without them for a while. I have not hear from my roommate yet (and I have been trying to get in touch with her for 3 weeks) so I am very frustrated about that. Also, my book list has not gone up yet. I hate buying books from the school bookstore because they are outrageously expensive, but I also do not like not having my books for the start of class. So if the books don't go up soon, I'm going to be forced to buy them from the school bookstore and spend a lot more money then I have to. More stress.

Also there is just packing and all that.

I currently have a sore throat and a key missing from my computer, so I'm just not in a good mood. I'm excited to go back to school but really wish things were going smoother right now.

I've Been Away

I have been pretty busy this past month, so no updates from me. But I will be getting back to them especially since school starts in a couple of weeks.

My health has been pretty up and down. My joints continue to be the biggest problem. Normally, the sun causes problems too, but here in the Northeast, most of the summer has been cloudy and rainy and cool so that wasn't a problem. But now summer has arrived and I've been hiding in my house the past couple weeks.

I'm worried about some blood work that I got back today that was taken on Monday. It showed that I had high blood sugar and that was the second time in a row I had gotten that result. The time before the time before last (are you following?) my blood sugar was low. When I was in high school I had problems with my weight due to medications and was told I was insulin resistant. I have lost about 40 lbs since then, I watch what I eat and I exercise as much has I can. So what's going on. Also, my white blood cells were the lowest I have ever seen them. Ah well.

I got pretty sick a couple weeks ago. I ended up making the 100 mile journey to school to see my primary care doctor twice and made two trips to the ER. Two rounds of antibiotics later I am better. From what I can gather I had strep throat or another form of pharyngitis, a double ear infection, sinusitis and bronchitis. Ohh the joys of being immunocompromised.

I will write later about school starting up. I'm a little stressed about it right now for various reasons.

P.S. Hello followers!!!!!!!! I'm sorry I missed you. Also, R.I.P. Sentaor Ted Kennedy.
