I’m sorry that I haven’t posted for a few days. That doesn’t happen very often. I guess, considering how frequently I normally post you could say my little break just balanced things out a bit.
I’ve been so ill. I was very sick for all of last week, but it got worse on Friday and to be honest I think today is the worst that I’ve felt in a long long time. I absolutely hate having Crohn’s disease.
I must have looked as bad as I felt yesterday because Chris actually told me that I looked bad. He never does that. It’s not just because he’s a nice husband. He is, but it’s because I seem to be one of those people that can practically be at deaths door and very few people will be able to tell just by looking at me just how bad I’m feeling.
This has been to my extreme disadvantage when seeing doctors or when I’ve been sick enough that I’ve had to go to the ER. The practice of medicine is both objective and subjective – you have to listen to what the patient is telling you, but you also have to listen to what your own eyes and observations are telling you. When you don’t look as sick as you are, you don’t always get the best care … well, at least up until all the blood work and other test results come in.
Anyway … I just wanted to check in and let you know I’m still here. I’ve got some posting that needs to be done, so you should see a few new articles on this site and some of the others that I run in the next few hours – including my Green Thumb Sunday posting.
