You know... just when you think it can't possibly get any worse. It always does. I have THE worst two years.
I've decided that since it's the end of the year... I need to make a list of significant events in my life (most of which are horrible.) We'll start with August 2007, because this is when it all started. I began college, which in and of itself is extremely stressful (such is the story of my life). Although, I can't say it's any harder than high school. In September, my godfather/uncle died. In October, my aunt died. In November, I found out my boyfriend of 2 years cheated on me with a friend of mine and dumped him... then my grandmother died. I know I had a birthday party, but I can't remember who was there... I don't remember December at all... only that my dad worked Christmas. On New Year's Eve, I started dating a new guy. (He's still a wonderful boyfriend, by the way.) In February, my family moved. Everything from my childhood is gone. The first two houses I lived in have been torn down... and my high school is gone too.
The move was nice, though. We'd been living, six of us and 3 animals, in a one story, two bedroom house. March 24 made 5 years since I've eaten chocolate. (Yes you'd remember too if the thing you loved so much put you in the hospital.) I was diagnosed with Raynaud's Syndrome, but that's nothing significant.... just another thing to add to ever growing list of ailments.
Summer came... and I developed an allergy to sunlight. I can no longer go out during the day without SPF 80 sunblock and long clothes. In August... school started again, but they took my scholarship away because they can't afford to pay it out anymore. I was absent so often, in the end, I had to drop two classes. The doctor's told me I have Hereditary Angioedema (severe allergic reactions to anything at anytime for no reason at all) and Postural Tachycardia Syndrome. I can't have the treatment for the Angioedema because it makes the P.O.T.S worse. I can't have the treatment for P.O.T.S. because if I have an Angioedema attack, the medication for P.O.T.S. will make the ones for the Angioedema not work. My dad's company closed down... so he no longer has work. No more medical insurance. My best friend tried to kill herself. I have to have more scary tests next month. I have to have my wisdom teeth out without pain killers. I'm allergic.
At least I still have my love... and my family... and music... hehe... and books. Lol.
Do NOT feel sorry for me. I'm not looking for pity. I apologize if it appears that way. I just needed to vent. Heh.
