Home From The Hospital

Well, after a week I am finally home! That was the longest, most exhausting week ever. Plus, it didn’t help that I didn’t get much sleep while I was there. They would literally wake me up at midnight, 4 am, 6 am and 7:15 am. The worst part was that they all had energy so I was like ughh.

I am really really hoping that IVIG works its magic. I was lucky to only get a few side effects (hot flashes, generally feeling of being unwell, dizziness, and headaches) compared to my friends who get it. I do have a headache right now so I am hoping that it goes away but besides that I am back to my normal dragging self.

I hope that I can get back to school by this weekend because I am really missing ALOT. It was two weeks from yesterday and I am very stressed out. Thank goodness I am only taking 13 credits (3 classes) this semester or else that would be even worse. Most of my professors are understanding so I’ve been pretty lucky with that. I don’t think they’re going to like what I have to tell them though. I am going to have to be gone once a month for a week for my infusions so I hope they will understand!

Hopefully I am just overthinking everything right now and I will get back and everything will be okay! I’ll keep you guys updated. Sorry for the short post but my head really hurts so I can’t focus right now!

  1. Hopefully you’re doing well and this medication helps. If you haven’t already, your college should have an accessibility department for students with chronic illness. It’s part of the Americans with Disabilities act. My son is in college and recently diagnosed with Severe Crohn’s disease. His physician filled out the paperwork which just starts his condition and what issues are related to the disease. He gets infusions every 8 weeks and has to leave school for 2 days. Plus it gives him ability to take exams early if he needs to leave or feels too bad to go to class. Attendance can be an issue that’s why he went through their process. Good luck with your infusions.

    1. Thank you!!!! I do have accommodations that I use so I’m all set. That’s good that your son has the opportunity to have those accommodations and that he utilizes them!
