Quick update of stuff that’s going on…
Yesterday, I got health insurance for 3 more years (that’s a PLUS!) since mine was going to run out at the this month/year. I got Tricare Prime for really cheap since my dad is Retired Military, so we drove to Fort Dixx Military Base IN New Jersey to get all that done. Then immediately after that I went to my first appointment with a ‘Psychologist’… haha. Let’s just say I will be looking up some new one’s through my insurance ASAP. AND researching them online thoroughly. Talk about unconventional. She might have a PhD, which is impressive… but I think she lost a few nuts and bollts along the past 40 years. And then ended up with her office in what seemed to be an old bathroom (with just the sink left) and two couches. Her cell phone was plugged in on the floor, along with a bunch of other random junk next to it….. I’m going to give her one more try next Thursday, but umm- I think I will be moving on .
From there I got home,my mom and I drove to the Cherry Hills Mall (in New Jersey- like 20 min away) and pretty much spent like 6 hours shopping. It was kind of fun, but it took soo long. Then somewhere between Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyone I realized my body felt like it hit a brick at wall at 50 mph and I all I wanted to do was lay down!!! Then my mother and I HAD to get something to eat before we headed home because we were starving! So we went to a place called Houlihans… which I would kinda relate to a TGIFridays.
It was delicious, other than the fact we got pretty much all fried appetizers but I was so tired, I could barely move so any food was good. It was a strange because I haven’t been this tired since before my fall/diagnosis. It was definitely a familiar feeling,e like there’s a few dictionaries on me right now (hehe for those of you who read some of my original posts).
Oh, and wanna see the drink I ordered at this restaurant??? I’m not really drinking alcohol (with the lupus I don’t want to hurt my body any more than it is), but I guess I should have read the description better. It was DELICIOUS, but I could only drink like an inch or two down into the drink. It seemed to be never ending! Check it out —->
Anyways, that was it for yesterday. I was soo exhausted I went to sleep and didn’t even take any ambien! WOW.
Today I’m going to Physical Therapy, then the Rheumatologist!!! YAY. I am excited to meet with him OUTSIDE the hospital setting. I am not sure what to expect for the first appointment, but I will for sure give an update on it later on.
