Seek mental help!

I think, considering the past few days' fortunes here, that someone is trying to tell me something.

As The Apple Turns

Well, they ran tests to make sure everything was okay before they did surgery. However, it seems that they saw something that perhaps means my symptoms aren't being caused by what they were going to repair in surgery next month. (I hope that makes more sense than it does to me at the moment. *grin*)

ANYway, I had to go in for some more extensive tests. EMG, MRI, other alphabetically named tests. Apparantly, what they are suspecting is MS. There is a small chance that it's just a chemical imbalance and I'll only have to take yet another pill each day. (I can't even remember how many I'm up to now. Daily pill reminders are a wonderful thing.) The chem. imbalance isn't looking too hopeful though. The symptoms should have started way before November.

And, to make this even more utterly sucky bad, if it is MS, the rapid onset and progression of symptoms may point to the rarest form of the illness, which is fatal within a year of symptom onset. So, I was basically told I have to take a pill, deal with sporadic loss of limb usage, or die in November.


How am I not supposed to be bummed by that??

More bumming is that if the MRI results (due Friday) show nothing, that doesn't rule anything out. Yeah, that's comforting!

It's unclear whether any surgery would be good for me or not now.

My mom calls me constantly trying to bully me back home. My dad is in denial. My brothers want to beat someone up. My youngest brother doesn't understand anything more than "Apple's sick." (He's 8-years-old with Down's Syndrome.) My sister is being thrown into clinical depression over the prospect of not having a sister to talk to about all her crazy adventures. Jason's mom is ticked that we're considering moving away. (She's being totally selfish and insensitive, but that's a whole other ball of wax.)

I'm not typing this out for anyone to send me inspired messages. (Although, they will be appreciated more than I will be able to say. Just not expected or even necessary.) I just needed to type it out so my head wouldn't explode.

The Zoloft they have me on makes me feel drunk. So, not all bad. *grin*

I find out tomorrow when I'm having surgery. (Repaired hernia) Hopefully, this will finally fix me. (Hmmm, that makes me sound like a dog. *grin*)

My sister's pregnant. She's due on my wedding day. Scene stealer!! "I don't care if you're in labor, get to the church, now!" *grin* No, I really wouldn't do that. Funny enough, we now know what she did on her birthday. *wink*

It makes me want to adopt a girl all the sooner. I suppose I should get married first, but the list is so long.

Really a night dream, but who's quibbling?

I dreamt that many spirits of people long dead were trying to get ahold of me and my family. However, they were very creepy. We were more concerned with getting away from them than listening to life lessons. It all culminated at a cabin out in the woods somewhere. But, that's when I woke up. Stupid brain not letting me see how it all ended or know what was so important that spirits had to tell us. Bah!

Um, I did get rather snarky there, didn't I?? Sorry.

I'm just sick of the anti-war people getting nasty when many of the pro-war crowd isn't. Verr odd, indeed.

I've been getting a lot of flack from those who think I shouldn't be joking about anything in this horrible moment in history. Um, don't think you have the right to tell me what I can or can not say. It's part of the freedom that our soldiers are once again fighting for. Eat my fecal matter and die! Kiss my big round hiney! (Can you tell I'm trying to keep civil here?? *grin*) I joked on the day I buried my daughter, I joked on the day the doctor told me they had to take out a tumor, I joked on the day that Jason's two-step sister (step-mom's step-daughter) was shipped out overseas! (She's in the Army.) I'm not making jokes about people dying! I'm not making jokes about race, color, or religion! I'm making jokes about the French (which is a nationality not a race) and the surrendering. DO NOT TELL ME WHAT IS FUNNY TO ME!!! You have the right to tell me that you think I am out of line. You have the right to say most things. You do not have the right to limit my speech, humor or opinion! If you do not like what I'm saying, don't listen. Completely your right, and exercise it as you will. It's what we're fighting for.

What was so disturbing to them??

We now have proof that the French have been training the Iraqi troops. Hundreds of them are surrendering already.

Several earthquakes measuring 10 on the Richter scale have been reported all over France. 56,910 dead American soldiers rolled over in their graves.

ba bum bum!
