It has been super quiet around here the past few weeks. By here, I mean the blog. Lord knows it is the only place in my life right now that is quiet. As I type, there are two boys who were sent to bed hours ago and at midnight are still laughing themselves silly. While I am here trying to get thoughts out of my head and not spill my tea down my chest. Again. It's been a wild few weeks.
|They were touching and not fighting. Ok one of them is asleep but still!|
One reason for the silence has been my H.E. Hepatic Encephalopathy is no joke friends. Obviously I already knew that but sometimes I like to think that I am invincible. Or that there there isn't enough time to take care of me. I have been horrible about taking my medication every day. My blood thinners yes. My lactulose, not so much. If you have ever taken it before, it might be easier to understand. But swallowing something that is pretty much going to give you a massive stomach bug within the hour, is well, a little hard to swallow. And then earlier this month the pharmacy ran out of my Xifaxan and I thought, oh a week won't' hurt. A week without the both of them had me missing whole parts of my day. And the only reason I figured that out was because I was texting my son back and forth and had zero recollection of it. Apparently I was having conversations with myself too. Like out loud in the middle of the night.
I'm rambling. I know. No lactulose tonight. I can't even count the number of posts I have deleted after realizing I was just going on and on about nothing. So I'm just gonna stop and tomorrow it's back to the regularly medicated Kim.
Next week, I will be around more often, And now that I am medicated properly, I should be back with something more than just this nonsense. 2017 will be the year I get myself together and taken care of.
** It took me over an hour to get this far. I had to go back and make sense of some sentences. Only I could slur my writing! I also took the dogs out but then realized I was standing out back, and the dogs were inside sleeping.**
