I have to share a song that's been driving me crazy these past two days, I love love love it.
The last week has been eventful;
Last Saturday, there was a fire in my apartment building. Everyone was unharmed, and although we had to evacuate, our property wasn't damaged. My cat, Felix, was traumatized. He tried to run away twice (the first time, when I was trying to stuff him in a gym bag and the second, he started running away when we were outside. Of course, I had to run after him and make a fool of myself; blasted house cat.)
This was precedent to a very bad hair cut; the hairstylist nearly gave me a baldie.
Then, on Wednesday (or Tuesday?) my father was hospitalized as he had temporary vision loss in one eye. He though it might be a stroke and went to the emergency, where he was kept over night and put under examination. Well, my daddy didn't tell anyone where he was so by the time we actually found out he was ill, he was feeling good.
I was a bit hysterical, as I always imagine the worst. I took a shower, bawled my eyes out, and went to see him at the hospital.
He was fine; I bought him food, and spent some time there. Then, I was off to work and my sister stayed with him until he was dispatched a couple hours later. Turns out, he had a blood clot in his head and he was given blood thinning meds, he has to check back in a month.
I don't know how to handle things like these, I try to stay calm in front of my family but when I get a minute to myself, I cry and feel overwhelmed. My parents are getting older, and it's up to my sisters and me to take care of them now. I don't feel ready for this, but my father's health scare really opened up my my mind about my own health.
Some days I feel very weak, like a cloak has been thrown over my entire body, I try to fight it but it's clear that I need to get tested. Most of my symptoms point to Anemia but I've been having intense back pain. On Thursday, I had to take a cab home because I felt so dizzy, I could barely walk. It was a bit frightening, I was so relieved when I got home.
I'll get tested this week, I have to stop being like an ostrich, hiding my head in the sand when I'm scared and hoping that things go away. I need to find out why my body's acting up and get treatment, if necessary. I'm scared though, I hope it's nothing serious.
We had a gorgeous weekend but I was stuck at home, battling a bad flu. I'm much better today, I had to go to work and although I feel a bit high (off the medicine, ha) I'm on the road to recovery.
I'm back, albeit temporarily, I feel like I missed a lot of the blogging world, so I am off to say hello to you and to read what's been going on in your lives :-) I have 44 followers. Life is pretty sweet.
