I used to get very anxious in social situations, although I don't now. Still prefer my own company though. 😂

I too have often thought that if I was growing up today I probably would have been diagnosed as being on the spectrum. I don't know if it's just me being over-analytical of myself.

Yeah I feel you.

I'm usually good with just me, or maybe hanging with my sister. But having friends to do stuff with sometimes would be nice too. Trouble is my only way of contacting them really is Facebook, and I have basically stopped using it because it just got to be too much.  So here I sit.  Even though I know friendship is a two-way street and if they wanted to get in touch they could figure out how. But still.

Did you forget how to use forums? ;)

 

Anyways, almost settled after the move now, but now my mum is in hospital. Doesn't seem to be anything too serious, but they've not found a cause so are keeping her in for tests. 

It's probably not as quick as it would be privately, but it's times like this I'm glad the NHS is around as I'm sure CT and MRI scans are expensive, not to mention the blood tests, painkillers, ambulance, and a week in hospital.

Hopefully she's out soon.

The bill that was submitted to our insurance after Hubz's stroke was $75k. That included 2 or 3 CT scans, 2 MRIs, 3 days in the ICU, a TEE, and another couple days on the stroke unit, as well as meds and PT/OT consults.

Oh my gosh, I had no idea. How is he doing now?

He’s doing really well. If you didn’t know, you wouldn’t be able to tell just be looking at him. His left side still tenses up when he gets tired, but considering what could have happened, it’s pretty mild.

Glad to hear he's doing well, and I hope to all of the gods that the insurance covered that bill. 😨

Mum's out now, they couldn't find anything in particular that caused it but it has subsided but they were confident it wasn't anything to worry about and she's back to normal now. Also, in other news I've officially cast of the shackles of my old flat so I should start having some free time again to work on GB stuff. Of course, there is always Christmas and New Year to disrupt everything for me.

I've been the only consistent one in my mom's treatment.  Across her initial mammogram, surgery per-certification, two surgery days, a week in the hospital, 14 chemo rounds, six rounds of radiation to-date, days and days of visits for Neuopogen shots, info sessions for chemo and radiation, and I don't know how many meetings with doctors and NPs, I've been to every thing except one chemo round (sick), one shot (sick), and one radiation round (someone else).  I fill out all the paperwork.  I'm the one talking to doctors and nurses and picking up prescriptions.

This whole time, my sister has lived under the same roof.  Most of the time, she's moaning and groaning how she doesn't feel like going to be with our mother.  There's always an excuse.  She's tired.  She doesn't feel well.  It's too hot.  None of her clothes fit.

I'm so goddamn tired of sith like this rolling down to me, getting no appreciation, being used, having to deal with the same bullsith repeatedly, and being made out like the bad guy when I say something.  I get accused by my mom of trying to put her off on the bus when I was desperately trying to make sure she had transportation to her radiation.  I'm the one constantly having to remind her that, yes, we do have a gas card, but we need to save it as much as we can.

I love all the "all these great things happened last decade" posts.  I got two worthless degrees, went to New Orleans, and flew for the first time. 

And what did I get in return?  Massive debt, months of homelesses, huge amounts of stress and desperation, a lack of appreciation, saw my last hopes die. I'm in the worst health (physical and mental) I've ever been in.  My car is FUBAR.  I lost a grandparent.
