Vanished

I have had grand intentions of posting regularly with witty, well thought out posts, and it just hasn’t happened. My muse is gone. I have a feeling it will come back later this week for a one-off appearance, as this week Matt and I have been together for 3 years – time flies when you’re having fun, apparently!

I have the next two weeks off work, just to take a break. Nothing overly thrilling planned, just relaxing and a few small bits and pieces. My specialist appointment is next Monday, so hopefully that will bring about a resolution to this sinus problem. I honestly can’t remember a time in the past two years that I haven’t had a headache. Fingers crossed that there’s a surgery-free solution, because I really don’t want to end up in hospital with my face packed with seaweed.

(I’m also ironically noting that if I have to have the surgery, my piercings will have to be taken out. The completely irrational thought here is that ‘oh God, I could have this major health problem fixed, but taking out my nose and lip studs to do so? Travesty!!!’) Seriously, though, I could just get my nose repierced, and I know that. I know this line of thinking is stupid. Don’t think I could get the Monroe done again, in hindsight. The actual piercing process itself, not a worry. The week after, feeling like shit, with my face swollen like somebody had given me an uppercut, not so much.

Speaking of pain, my dad was given a couple of morphine tablets by a friend. Dad took said tablets (on top of all the other medication he’s on.) Later on, Dad goes to his doctor and says he feels like crap, then admits to taking the morphine. Dad’s doctor blasts him for taking them, and says that he’s suffering from withdrawal, because, each tablet was ten times stronger than a morphine injection you get when you go to hospital.

Things we do to try and make ourselves feel a bit better…
