Just A Quick Note ...

No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth, I simply haven't had a class with a computer in a very long time. :) I'm actually in my last term right now ... so excited!

I will probably post the essays I wrote for my Composition class last term, but I'm not even sure when I'll get to that. I guess we'll just see, eh?

Until then, cheerio!

That Sweet Relief ...

... is here again. No, I don't mean Xanax (unfortunately). It's finals week. :) So happy to have yet another term under my belt.

The only bad thing this presents is that I have no computer classes next term, so I don't really know when I'll be able to post. I shall try, but it will probably be more sporadic than it has been.

I will really try, though, because there's been some stressful shit going on that I really want to write about, but I simply don't have that time right now. Until next time, dearies.

It's that time again ...

We've hit the week before finals again. Ugh, I hate this stress-filled week, but it means I'm one step closer to my goal.

And, of course, the new term can't come without an issue ... See, the term after next is when I start my externship. Now, normally, there's at least one class left to take by that time, and it usually is a Gen Ed class and not a Core Class. However, the way my schedule stands now, I would have to take Pharmacology - a necessary Core Class - during my externship.


I'm not very happy about this. The person to see about rearranging my schedule is gone for the day, but I shot her off an e-mail asking if there is a way to bump one of the two Gen Ed courses I'm scheduled to take next term so I can take Pharmacology instead. Hopefully it can be worked out, I will be very pissed if I have to take a Core Class during externship; to me, that is just unacceptable.

But, like I said, the person who deals with the schedules is gone for the day today, so nothing can be done about it right now. Just going to take it one day at a time this week until it's over.

BTW - I've hit over 200 hits on this blog! Yay! Like I said, I'm not sure how many of those are actual people, but thank you very much to those of you who do read this blog. :) Love you all!

Ohh Em Gee

Earlier, I felt like I was going to fall asleep standing up. Not good, considering I have a five hour class tonight.

I proceeded to drink 2/3 of a pot of coffee in less than half an hour. Definitely wide awake now.

There will be no real post this week, other than this, because during my breaks tonight (and tomorrow, if I don't get it done tonight) I will be working on a project for Anatomy and Physiology, which is due next week. Oh, joy.

Until next week, then, my friends.

A big thanks ...

... goes out posthumously to Jimi Hendrix, for making music that really soothes me. I got into a pissy-ass mood last night and woke up in the same mood, but after a nice, hot shower and some Hendrix magic, I was feeling much better.

Doesn't always work, but I love it when it does.

"Scuse me while I kiss the sky ..."

Good Labor Day

The weather was pretty back and forth this weekend, so no big outdoor activities for us. Instead it was just us, our roommates, one of our roommate's sister and another one of our friends at the house. We just hung out and played dominos (haven't played in years, no clue why, it's so much fun!) and grilled some chicken and pineapple and had some succatash and my one roommate's famous macaroni salad.

Nice and relaxing for a change. No Dad in sight. Thank God. I'm hoping this keeps up because it'll still be a while yet before the Celexa kicks in.

A Triumph?

I had a follow-up appointment with Dr. G last week to discuss the results of the testing that I had for ADHD. Apparently, according to the neuropsychologist, I don't have ADHD. Bullshit, I say, I know myself better than that, but I wasn't going to fight with Dr. G because it wasn't her tests and she wasn't the one interpreting said tests. She's put me on Celexa to help with the anxiety and the depression. She also referred me to a free-type clinic that I hadn't heard of before, since I'm losing my insurance at the end of September, so hopefully I can get in there soon. She also wanted me to go to some type of therapy that I've never heard of before. I don't remember what it is right now so I can't even look it up; perhaps tomorrow I can, during breaks.

I then had another follow-up appointment this morning with the neuropsychologist that tested me. I was so anxious about it I barely slept; I mean, I really disputed the negative-ADHD results. Granted, it's been a while since I was last tested, but the doctor who last tested me was a specialist in his field for far longer than the current neuropsychologist has even been in his. I wanted to give him a piece of my mind, tell him I thought he was full of shit, but at the same time I didn't want to come off as hostile and generally crazy. So I got up super early this morning after a horrible night's sleep, got myself to the appointment, and was about to give him the ol' what for, when he got into his analysis.

Apparently, the results were actually inconclusive, as my anxiety level was so high that it skewed the results. His recommendations were pretty much the same as Dr. G's, so all I need to do now is try to get into both places.

So, no meds to help with the ADHD. Boo. Whatever. The Celexa takes at least a couple of weeks to kick in, too, so it'll be a while before I even know if it helps. Here's hoping it helps, because I'm getting pretty sick of this bullshit.
