"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

Last medical post (about me) I promise

So I went to see my NP at school today because I havent been feeling any better and she did her exam and because I was so distended, had so much pain, and had no bowel sounds, she was sending me to ER. I was like, for real? Yes. So, off I went. But I didn't go by ambulance, or with any note from her because she wanted the doctor to come up with a conclusion on his own. Blech. So I was on my own to replay all of the symptoms that have happened since Friday. So, fun. So all in all and after a CT scan with contrast, they are seeing some inflammation and think it could be diverticulitis, Crohns, or ulcerative colitis, and neither of the above are fun. At all. So I have to get a colonoscopy and undergo miralax, 2 antibiotics (ugh), and colace. So well seeee. :-/
