Random Lupie Vent

Let me forewarn you... I am randomly venting.

I find myself wanting to lay in bed, be anti-social, and read books that I've probably read over a million times. It could be the increase of prednisone (who am I kidding, that is what it is!) but I am ALWAYS conflicted with my sleep schedule.

I'm always wanting to lay in bed, BUT while I'm there, I am wishing I was up doing something. (Sounds weird I know!) But that's just how crazy my medicine have me. I'll climb in bed at 9pm (hoping for a good sound sleep) and 2 or 3 hours later, I'm staring at the ceiling or watching Golden Girls wondering why I hadn't fallen asleep!! I'm thinking to myself... "I could've SWORN a hour ago I was exhausted!!!"... MIND YOU, I have to get up for work in the morning, and  the result is usually me being sluggish ALL DAY because I didn't get to sleep till 1am in the morning.

AND LET ME NOT GET ON THIS WEIGHT GAIN... Sooooo, I've never been the type to watch my weight, I figured "Hey, I like french fries, pasta, and bread... I don't think loosing weight will be an option for me right now!".... HOWEVER, since I have been diagnosed with lupus, I have tried different ways to possibly reduce inflammation in my body, and although its not 1,000 percent effective, I do feel good about myself trying to heal my own body naturally.... SOOOOO from eliminating some of the foods I use to eat, weight kind of just "fell" off...

Soooooooo, with that being said... I have probably gained over 20 pounds pilling up steroids in my body in the past few weeks. NOW I'M PISSED! All this time I was eating my bread and pasta, I maintained weight... NOW I get a dose of medicine to help me and then the weight comes!!! OMG! How backwards is all of this!! I'd rather the weight came from my french fries and burgers (since I knew it was my fault from eating all of that!) INSTEAD it's totally against my own control... *speaking off... I'm hungry for some shrimp and pasta right now*

Ohh... Ohh... Ohh...

and let's not talk about all the blood that doctor's have to take when you go to an appointment! *rolls eyes* Like, couldn't you get ONE TUBE, and share it among all the different test you have to run! I truly doubt if they are using ALL 9 tubes of blood to run maybe 3 or 4 test. Like, are you guys secretly selling my blood for a profit or something. (Probably so!) and then STOP BRINGING in these INTERNS that have no clue on what they are doing! I swear, if I meet another nurse that does not know how to get the vein the first time, I'M GOING TO SCREAM!!! Stop playing around with my arm, and bring a professional in here before I throw my $2 old navy flip flop at you! *smile*

I'm done. *sigh*
