As you can see so far this week, I’ve been a slacker. I figured today is a good day to throw an update out there so you all know I’m mostly alive and kicking but my life sucks right now.
So firstly, work has been a shit show, literally. Unfortunately, my boss and her husband were in a car accident last Saturday. He walked away with a few scratches and bruises and she was lifted away with a severely broken leg. So for the last week and a half I’ve been doing not only my job but hers too and for someone who’s in a hospital bed, she’s very demanding. And her husband is worse cause he doesn’t know how to do anything for himself. These are the times when I hate text messaging but I’m the type of person that always answers my texts because what’s the point of my cellphone otherwise?
Meanwhile, I’ve been fighting the mother of all itches. I’ve developed some kind of rash or hives or something on my arms and legs and it’s slowly creeping to the belly. Baby probably doesn’t want me to scratch him or her constantly all day so I asked my midwife to prescribe me something stronger after exhausting all the over the counter creams, lotions, ointments, oatmeal baths and everything else under the sun you can think of that I got off Google. She prescribed me and oral steroid; low dosage. I was all for that until I googled the steroid and then decided I’d rather suffer because the side effects, especially to baby, scare me. I really don’t want to have an alien baby considering how close I am to being done with this whole pregnancy business.
She also put in a dermatolgy consult for me because who better to prescribe me something that won’t harm the body snatcher than a skin doctor. So two days go by and nobody calls me. I call the office and she says the earliest they can get me in is in November. NOVEMBER! I legit told her I’d be dead by then and that’s not acceptable and asked for dermatologists in the area I can spam call that could possibly get me in sooner. She warned me that she wasn’t sure if my insurance would cover it but I’m so desperate at this point I didn’t even care. American health care system is so jacked. Luckily my husband has bomb insurance and the first place I called after explaining my situation and emphasizing how desperate I am for relief, I have an appointment later today that will hopefully cure me at least for the next 7 and a half weeks because apparently the be all end all cure is child birth.
Anyway, there you have it. My blog slacker rant. I probably won’t be posting the rest of this week but I hope to pick it back up next week especially with endangered posts. I have at least two lined up in my mind they just need to be written for when I’m not trying to claw my skin off. I hope you all are having a better week than I am! I’m still going to keep up with all of your blogs even though mine will be gathering a little dust for a bit.
