Well, I’m still here! Things are pretty rough at present time and I figured ‘What better time for a blog post?’. A few highlights of late:
The Alaska Trip is not happening (at least in the form we imagined). Shannon has an infection in his foot and is currently in the hospital being treated for it. Not sure what his plan of aftercare will entail but we’ll know more soon. I took him to the hospital the night before last. I am worried fucking sick 😖
As for my health, I did a dumb thing recently and lapsed on my RA meds for about a month or two and I’m paying for it with an absolutely punishing flare up. I saw my Rheumatologist a few days ago, explained what was up and he gave me a few treatment options. I chose Kevzara shots because he had samples (meaning I could start on it right away) and I did my first injection in the office before I left. I’m still hurting bad and am currently attempting to control things with low doses of prednisone. It’s making me loopy but it IS helping. I’ve been highly stressed physically and mentally and have managed to weasel my way out of my last two days of work but tomorrow I absolutely gotta go.
My Mom(who reads this Blog) has been really awesome and supportive about me transitioning. She suggested seeing an Endocrinologist and looking into starting hormones as well as possibly genetic testing. She still has outfit angst for Me, bless her heart. She couldn’t stand the way I dressed before I figured myself out and that hasn’t really changed 😂
So those are the major occurrences lately. Time to go through the hot ass summer with awkward stage hair. Whatever. I feel surprisingly good considering I’m deep in a wicked RA flare up. I hurt like hell and I’m more emotional than usual but Shannon is the one in real trouble right now and I’m doing my best to be strong for us. I’m gonna clean up, put on something cute and go have dinner with my lover in his hospital room. I’ll deal with tomorrow tomorrow.
