Apr. 18th, 2006


Today's events

Rule number one:
Never let sterotypes be said without clarifying and reflecting why they are sterotypes.

A very short entry from my journal tonight..

on a side note my mind wondered to Pride marches...
Why is it that the disability commmunity allows people to degrade them at events used to express their pride?

Still sick

till i read my journal i did not realize exactly how long i have been sick for.
But here it is February and i am still throwing up. so here is the update.
i have missed lots of work lots of school and now i am going to a digestive dieses specialist, because i have been losing a lot of blood every time i throw up or go to the bathroom. not fun...
so now they are trying to get me in asap but the earlist the hospital can get me in is February 14th Valentines Day.
hopefully they will get me in sooner because being sick and sitting at home is boring not fun.
plus i am always hungry but i cant eat anything because i will just get sick.
fun times
well thats the update

it was gross

today i got done with class and really did not feel well, i started to drive back to work and started to feel very ill i thougth i was burning up. I also could not keep my eyes open for the life of me i decided to pull off the road to rest since i literly kept having my eyes close on me no matter how loud i blasted the music, trying to stay awake. I pulled into golden arches and though i will attempt to drink coffee to stay awake, well soon i was in the public restroom pucking up the nasty coffee i had just forsed myself to drink.
I left soon after and hit the road again, only to have to pull off at a rest stop only a few miles from where my lansing exit was. It sucked so much I got back to my apartment two hours after class ended and only had enough energy to write an email (since my phone was broken) to my boss and the secertary at work than fell asleep. I woke up later feeling well enough to suffer through class, at least i was not puking anymore, now i just got home and feel awful.
Chronicles of Narnia rocked
Go see it
stop reading
see the movie
ok it was good
thats all
