I am having an off day. An off week, really.
On Monday night, less than an hour after I had bragged on this blog about Lulu’s progress, she became suddenly aggressive toward me again. This time it was bad. It’s been a heartbreaking couple of days as we try to figure out what to do with her. We don’t really know what the right answer is. It’s a complicated situation.
Yesterday was my mom’s 56th birthday, and it completely slipped my mind until late last night when I saw that my dad had posted about it on Facebook. I felt guilty that I hadn’t called her, and my dad’s observation that “she doesn’t know how old she is” kinda shattered my heart. I called her today, and she sounds tired. She sounds confused. I wish my parents didn’t travel so much.
Today, I woke up feeling achey all over, experiencing some Crohn’s-related pain, and feeling sad. It’s amazing (and annoying) how responsive my body is to stress. Hopefully after laying low & taking it easy today, I’ll feel better tomorrow. I have plans to hang out with a friend for the first time in a couple months, and I don’t want to miss out on that.
So that’s what’s up.
