Hello, it’s been a while.
9 March 2013
It’s been 3 months since I’ve really payed attention to photography. I miss it a lot. Come back to me please i love you
So, I’m making this a text post because tumblr is being ridiculously stupid and my computer is being ridiculously slow (although the latter isn’t much of a surprise).
Well, I haven’t posted for about a month, and between my last post and this one I must admit it’s been the most physically and emotionally draining time period ever. However, I think that my emotional upheaval is due to the physical tiredness and fatigue i’ve been facing for about 3 1/2 weeks. I couldn’t really explain it at first. I know the first week of Fall Term I needed two advil just to get through the day- because if I didn’t my bones would start aching and I would feel really tired and I started getting knots on my neck too. I thought I was just stressed out. It had been this way for about 3 1/2 weeks but it’s been on and off. Then this week I went to the doctor and what I found out explained everything.
On tuesday my mom decided to take me to the doctor because I honestly couldn’t handle the tired and sick feeling anymore and my tonsils were starting to really swell up and I was starting to worry why I wasn’t getting any better. Just by looking at me my doctor diagnosed me but he wanted to do a few tests just to be sure. They first tested for strep which came out negative. Then they drew blood from my arm which was probably the scariest thing ever (not really i was just being dramatic because it was my first time) so that they could test to see if I had mono(which came back positive). She only took out like a small tube of blood, and I was surprised I didn’t cry or feel gross or nauseous at the sight of my blood. I was kinda proud of myself to be honest. haha. Today I noticed that my arm was dark greenish and I was like WOAH WHAT HAPPENED THERE?! and then I remembered. Yeah Idk if you can see it in the picture, but it’s green and purplish.
Anyways, let me just say that since tuesday, I have progressed drastically and I thank God for it because it feels really good not to be that sick. It was probably the worst feeling ever, especially because my tonsils were so swollen that it hurt extremely bad to eat or even pass saliva- I couldn’t do it, I had to spit out my saliva for a few days lol. Then there’s this overwhelming feeling of fatigue and you just wanna sleep forever and ever but it’s hard because your tonsils are screaming at you and you can’t talk or relax or anything. I admit I cried a few times because it got really frustrating and it hurt really bad and I was tired of it. There’s no actual medicine for it (just pain relievers and some other stuff that helps a little), so all you can really do is be patient and rest. I still forced myself to eat and drink because I wouldn’t have gotten better without doing to.
In the mornings my mom would give me warm water with lemon. man.. I can’t.. okay, You know when you have a cut or something and you get salt or alcohol or lemon on it and it stings really bad? That’s what my throat felt like. It felt like I had billions of cuts on my tonsils. It’s a really bad feeling and I’ve never experienced that before and I hope I never ever ever will lol. The medication helped a lot to relieve the pain- so I really owe it to my prescribed 800 mg Ibuprofen for letting me sleep a couple of hours.
Anyways, I didn’t start feeling better till yesterday(my throat wasn’t throbbing anymore, only when I ate or drank something).. Even though I threw up like.. twice. haha It was all the medicine I was taking though. I felt really nauseous all day yesterday, and because I was nauseous because of all the tylenol and ibuprofen I took, I couldn’t sleep so I got really frustrated. That night I told my dad that I just really wanted to relax and he suggested some aroma therapy. At first he had a pot of really hot water and we have these bottles of scented oils and he put some in there and it was really relaxing and great. Then I came up with the idea of.. A BUBBLE BATH! with aroma therapeutic bath salts and I got really excited and happy and so he decided to fill the bath tub for me and stuff. I laid in there for about 45 minutes just soaking in the aromas and relaxing while being massaged by the little things on the side of bath tubs that throw out water (forgot what it’s called). It was probably the most peaceful and relaxing 45 minutes i’ve had since like ever. And that night, I slept pretty darn good for the first time all week.
I’m just so glad I’m feeling better. I’m not fully there yet, I still feel really tired (which the doc said the fatigue could last for weeks or months) but the fact that I’m sitting here typing is a huge step from 2 days ago~ I will forever be more careful who I share my food and drinks with, because normally I really don’t care. I have no idea how I got it to be honest, I just thank God I’m feeling better. You have no idea how good it feels to feel good. lol

Today was one of those days where I said I needed to do a bunch of stuff but didn’t obtain the motivation to do so.

My entire week has consisted of reading, writing, and drawing. I love it so much. I’m trying to cherish it as much as possible until I have to go back to school ._.

WELL. I had a bunch of stuff to say about these photos, but tumblr decided to be stupid and just crash after I pressed “create post”. I had a lot of awesome insightful things to say but I don’t feel like typing ALL of it.
Anyways, this is my nephew, Joseph. It’s been awesome watching him grow up, and I absolutely love him. Some of his favorite things to do are draw, paint, and read. He’s filled with such excitement and imagination all the time and it makes me wish being a kid. He’s so big now, I remember when he was a little baby. heh.
