Understanding

I did not write about my sickness for attention. I do not want more attention. I wrote about it to help people understand. So they can understand why I'm not there. I will not give you an award for praying for me, there's no need to tell me every day.

I chose to write about it once it started to get better, writing about it any earlier was an impossible task in more ways than one. This week I have been a lot less sick.

I know some people sincerely mean it when they offer to help but I am not in the mood. I want to be able to do things myself and it makes me upset when I can't.

I am angry, I am irritable. That is what the medicine that is helping does. What you say to me, especially if you think you have the answer to my problems (you don't and I've already tried it anyway), will make me angry.

These are common side effects of the medicine that is making me feel better:
  • Aggression
  • agitation
  • blurred vision
  • decrease in the amount of urine
  • dizziness
  • fast, slow, pounding, or irregular heartbeat or pulse
  • headache
  • irritability
  • mood changes
  • noisy, rattling breathing
  • numbness or tingling in the arms or legs
  • pounding in the ears
  • shortness of breath
  • swelling of the fingers, hands, feet, or lower legs
  • trouble thinking, speaking, or walking
  • troubled breathing at rest
  • weight gain
Fun, right?

Thank you for understanding.
