Thea's last post

My name is Brian Rowland, I have some sad news.

Sunday morning Thea was found dead in her apartment. She was found on the lying on the flour next to her desk. IT appears that she hit her head and landed in a position that did not allow her to breath.

If you would like more info you can email me at brian.rowland@hotmail.com or call 503-317-4405

Thea will be missed
I'm sure I've got something to say, but I'm not sure what it is. I've been writing more in my dead tree journal.

Tonight dinner is a Strawberry Fanta and a fairly traded dark chocolate bar with espresso beans. Just what I need in the evening... caffeine!

I got myself some new furniture. I got another bookshelf. If I counted right, I have six book cases in my tiny apartment. I think I have a problem with books. Plus I have two more bookcases at my parent's house. I think I am only going to move one of them.

Besides the bookshelf, I got a storage ottoman. It's nice to have a stable place to set my laptop. I haven't decided what to store in it, but I think I'm going to store computer parts in it.

And then I got the greatest thing. I got an adjustable drawing/drafting table with six small drawers. Right now it's covered with scrapbooking clutter. I did seven pages last night and I was working on a calendar today. I even got a new office chair to go with my new desk.

Spend, spend, spend!!!

We have a monthly Stitch-n-Bitch. This month I think it is at Michelle's and I hope to have it in my apartment next month. How hard could it be to clean a small apartment? Hahaha.
I've had an exciting week. I've been to the ER twice. Last Sunday I went for a migraine/sinus infection. I got IV fluids, a bunch of blood tests, a huge shot of morphine in my hip and antibiotics.

On Friday I was feeling like crap. I had a PCP appointment. He ordered a boat-load of blood tests and wanted me to check in with my pdoc. So I saw my pdoc, we just talked since all the blood tests had been run and we were just waiting for the results. (My PCP had ordered the tests to be run STAT.) My pdoc really wanted me to check myself into the psych ward but I pretty much refused. But I did agree to see her again on Monday. Later that evening she called me all in a tizzy. My lithium level was toxic. That's why I was feeling like crap. So back to the hospital with me for more IV fluids. They could only get a pediatric line in me because my veins are so small and hard to find. So it took an hour to get the 1000cc of fluid into me.

At this point I have track marks from all the IVs, blood tests and failed attempts to get needles and lines in me.

Oh yeah, my birthday was this week. I'm old, I'm 32. Thanks for the happy wishes!

I had a busy week, besides the time I spent in the hospital. Monday I saw my pdoc, Tuesday my dermatologist, Wednesday I had a pedicure, Thursday I had DBT and Friday I saw my PCP and pdoc.

The dermatologist was interesting. I have classic hormonal acne. Finally, I have something normal. She replaced my tetracycline with docicycline. And she gave me two creams, one for the morning and one for the evening. She wanted to give me another pill but it doesn't play nice with lithium, but I have a feeling I'm off the lithium permanently. I hope my pdoc gives me a replacement.
I've got a migraine. I woke up with it this morning. That was many, many hours ago. I tried to sleep it off. That was highly unsuccessful. I finally took some painkillers.
I just had a major thing-valanche. I think it's time to re-engineer my thing-stacks.

I have re-discovered podcasts. I played with them a bit when they were new but I was highly unimpressed. But now there are so many! I found a bunch of psychology and psychiatry ones.

P.S. Don't mind my spelling. I'm having trouble with my brain and my spell checker.

I miss my kitties. That is Sylvia Smudges in my icon. Brian says that it's been 18 months since I've seen them. :( I know it's been a while, but I didn't think it has been that long. They're not really my kitties anymore.

I'm very tired. Night-night.

Long time, no write. Sorry about that... I'd say I've been busy, but I haven't. Just Lazy.

I'm going camping with my parents and Molly-dog tomorrow. We're going to a camp ground in eastern Oregon that has a fenced dog park. And yes, the reason Mom choose this camp ground is only because of the fenced dog park. I still have to pack tonight.

Today I went out to lunch with a friend from the building and we did a bit of shopping and we went to my pdoc's office to get my med boxes refilled. I saw my records and I think they said I am bipolar. My pdoc never told me, although it is not a surprise. I'm going to try to remember to ask my pdoc next time I see her.

Maybe TMI... my boobies are perky today. I'm wearing an underwire bra instead of my usual selection of sports bras.

I've got an appointment with a dermatologist on the 9th. I've got horrid acne and I just realized it's been since I quit taking BCPs. I was on BCPs for fourteen years and I'm ready to let my body do it's own thing. I think it's been over a month since I've taken them and no red tide. I suppose I should see a gyn about getting my tubes tied... see if Medicare will pay for it.

I need to order some prescriptions from the pharmacy. Maybe I will remember tomorrow morning... or not.

The TV isn't amusing me tonight. Not even all the new shows. So I have the TV on, the radio is on and I'm surfing the internet. ADD much?

Okay, it's time for me to think about packing. Night-night all.
I've been sidelined. I went to Urgent Care to have my ankle looked at. I won a bunch of X-rays and an AirCast. I don't like the X-ray person. She made my lay on a cold, hard table and she bent my ankle in all sorts of ouchy positions. Mean lady!
My housekeeper came today. I have a sparkly clean apartment!

I fell and sprained my ankle/foot today. It hurts. I limp. My leg went numb and I tried walking on it before I got feeling back in it. I'm afraid of what happens when my neuropathy gets worse.

Please, no!
please, no
