Year 1 Day 144 (Day 509)

Hi all! How are you all doing today? I went back into the doctor today and he's fairly certain that my pain isn't caused by a ruptured ovarian cyst, but he does this that it may have to do with my sciatic nerve. He is thinking that there is inflammation around the nerve which is causing the pain, so he is starting me on an anti-inflammatory and some pain medication. The only bad thing about the medication is that it will make me very drowsy, so the doctor doesn't want me to be driving while on these medications. That means I'll have to rely on other people to take me to the doctor for the next week or so.

I've got to be honest, the past few weeks I have just done horribly with my nutrition. I know that it probably has to do with the stress, sickness, and pain that I have been experiencing. The sickness and pain, you all know about. But the stress tends to vary from day to day. I've been able to come to terms, to an extent, with Abid not being able to come online. And that being said, it's still a major struggle each day. We do get to talk on the phone a little but it's not really enough. Believe me, I realize that this is probably just as hard on Abid as it is on me, but I'm trying to remain strong. But anyways, this is playing a role in why my nutrition is going off course. It is something that I need to work on, starting now.

Today I was finally able to get all of my books ordered, I wish I would have realized it yesterday when I ordered my other book but it's better late than never. My enrollment counselor told me that I would only need to order a specific book, so yesterday that is the book that I ordered. And today as I was going through my assignment that's due in a few weeks, I realized that I need another book. So I decided to go through all of the assignments and see what books I will all need. There were 3 total books that I needed and now all of them have been ordered. Until I receive my books, I cannot continue to work on my assignments. So I am hoping that my books will arrive here in a few days.

I'm feel very tired from my medication, so I think I'm going to go lay down for a little while. Until next time.

  1. Nerve pain is no fun, I've been there with my knee and back and the meds weren't any fun either. I hope it gets better for you soon!
