World IBD Day!

May 19, 2010

May 19th is World IBD Day!

I feel this is appropriate since Crohn’s and surgery are pretty much all I have been focused on for the last couple of weeks. I just had my last day of work on Sunday; I hadn’t been giving 100% at work anyway recently since I’ve been feeling bad, and I wanted to have some time to prepare mentally and physically before surgery. I work at an animal hospital as a technician, so work days can be long and stressful and I’m always on my feet. They took me off the payroll since I do not know exactly when I’ll be able to return, but I’m hoping and praying that they will hire me back with no problems after I’m ready to work again, because the employees there are like a second family to me.

Now I only have 2 more exams left this semester, then I can rest until my operation. My health has really suffered this semester, and I’m struggling to pass at least one class, but I just want it to be over now.

In a week, my mother wants me to have one last vacation with her in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina before I get my surgery. I am only going because she really wants me to. I am honestly not looking forward to the long drive. Hopefully, this will be my last vacation ever as a sick person.

I have been feeling the worst in the mornings, which is the usual for me. Sometimes it is difficult just to stand up straight or to walk. I don’t ever want to eat in the morning either. I’ve also been sleeping in later to help get past the early morning woes.

I still don’t have an exact date scheduled, but I can’t wait. Waiting always stresses me out. I’ll update when I get my appointments scheduled, and after meeting my ostomy nurse.
