DVR oh yeah!!!

Hey y'all!

I just got back from pulmonary rehab. I'm freakin' tired as hell. I had another "sleep episode" last night. So I woke up today with a headache and feeling tired as hell. But I still made myself go to rehab b/c I know I need it. It was pure hell. My head is killing me and I'm having trouble staying awake. All I want to do is lay down and go to sleep for a few hours. But I can't. I have to go over to my aunt's house this evening to have dinner with the family. We're celebrating my other aunt's birthday.

Now to the good news. I got DVR today! WHOOO HOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! YES! Now I will be able to watch ALL my favorite shows without missing any b/c the times conflict! I'm so psyched!

Musical Blog

What's up my bitches.

I'm back. And I finally have music on my page!!!!!!!!!!! YESSS! Thanks to Christy Hubbard who graciously helped me out on that. You rock Christy! Now if I could just get a hit counter, I'd be good to go!

Nothing wonderful to report about today. Boring. I ended up canceling pulmonary rehab due to not feeling up to going. (lady issues mmkay) Plus I was still tired from the sleep study and my sleep pattern being out of whack.

Rant: You know what really pisses me off? When people eat your food that you are saving in the fridge. I deliberately put my other half of Subway sandwich in the fridge Wed. afternoon before leaving for Chapel Hill. B/c I knew it would be there when I got back and I could eat it Thursday evening or today. So i got up today and went to get my sandwich out to eat for lunch. The fucker was missing!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggh.

My damn brother stole it!!!!!!!!! Oh man. That asshole. *deep calm breaths* I really really wanted it too! I had my heart set on that damn sandwich!!! Oh, the Humanity!!!!!!!!!

What's up Bitches?!

I'm back from Chapel Thrill and my sleep study. Once again, I was not able to fall asleep easily and when i did fall asleep I wouldn't stay asleep that long before I'd wake up. It was a vicious cycle. So I really doubt they were able to get any good information like I had hoped :-(

Although , I DID have my Mom take a picture of me after the technician got me all hooked up to the wires and all the other bullshit they put on you before you go to sleep. Check me out. (look above) Yeah I know. The hair looks crazy. They put all this glue in it to glue the thingies to your head, so they don't really care about how it makes your hair look when they're done. Look how big that box thing is that all the wires are connected to. CRAZY huh? So we got back today around 10:00 am. I checked my email and such and then laid down around Noon to take a nap b/c I was exhausted. I slept until around 6pm I guess, when my mom woke me up for dinner. I ate and then I was so tired, b/c I had ANOTHER Episode in my sleep. (the whole reason for the sleep study to begin with - that I DIDN'T have during the study!!!) What the hell? Why couldn't this have happened LAST night when they were studying me in my sleep? *rolls eyes* Such is my life, I swear! Anyway, I laid back down around 6:30pm and slept until 11 pm. So I'm up and awake, so i thought I'd update the blog.

Tomorrow is Friday. I have pulmonary rehab at 3:30pm. I hope I end up having a good weekend. Oh yeah, I have a party to attend with my friend Emily on Saturday. One of those fun sex toy parties. Yay! Snacks!!! :) That's the only reason to get excited about going to one of those parties, now that I have no man :) hahahahaha.

Breathe Easy! I'm off like a prom dress!

Sleepy Time

Hidey Ho, Bitches. :)

It's 3:19 pm and I've only been awake for a couple hours. I'm already sleepy as hell and in need of a nap. Jeeez, CO2 retention sucks balls, man. Plus, to make matters worse, I didn't sleep well last night. I have no idea why. I kept waking up feeling as if I wasn't getting enough oxygen. It was weird. I hope that i sleep well tomorrow night during my sleep study in Chapel Hill.

I don't know if anyone reading this (if there is anyone reading this) has ever had a sleep study done. But it is definitely an experience. They glue all these sensors all over your head. It doesn't feel all that great when they put it on and the glue smells highly toxic. I had to cover my face last time so I didn't have to smell it. Then they also put stickies all over the rest of your body as well. Your chest, your ribs, your hips, your legs. THEN, they hook up wires to every one of the stickies! THEN all the wires hook into this clunky box thing that you stay attached to, during the night. It's crazy, man. I don't know how they expect someone to sleep comfortably hooked up to all that crap. I felt like I had been abducted by aliens and they were running some sort of experiment on me. Then, when they take the sensors off your head, it hurts like hell, pulls your hair b/c its all stuck in there from the glue they use and your hair is all gunky and gross. UGH. The things we do to find out answers!

And oh yeah, this time, my mom is staying the night also so she doesn't have to drive all the way back home. I hope they have a room vacant that she can use, b/c I doubt I'll be able to sleep well with her snoring ass sleeping in my room! hahahahah. :)

I emailed my transplant coordinator but strangely, the email address isn't working. Hmmm..i hope its just a fluke :) I guess I'll find out soon enough. I emailed the assistant and asked her if there was something wrong with his email. Like my mamma always says, "there's more than one way to skin a cat!" (and she should know, she's ran over enough of them!)

Blog news: I'm desperately trying to add a hit counter to this blog, to see how many people are reading it. (IF ANY) But everytime I try, it won't work :-( I also want to add a guest book. If anyone is reading this *fingers crossed* then I'd love some help.

20 min. on Treadmill + Free weights = SNACKS!

Greetings my loyal followers. Wait a second, this is only the 2nd blog entry. Well, my FUTURE loyal followers. :)

I figured I would make a little post before i sign off the net for the night. The couch and tv are calling my name and my tired, sore body is ready to obey its Masters.

I've realized that a perfect bribery for me to attend and do well at Pulmonary Rehab is SNACKS. I love Snacks! Who doesn't?! I was able to gently talk my mother into taking me to the store after we left therapy and purchase me snacks galore!

Among the snacks i got were: White Cheddar popcorn, lemon cream cookies, doritos, pizza flavored cheese balls, pepsi's (Yes, plural) and others.

So in conclusion, My body is tired as hell, BUT at least I have something to snack on while watching T.V. tonight! :)

P.S. Props to Linda (physical therapist) for bragging to my Mom how awesome I did today at rehab!! WHOO HOO! I'll think of you as a pop a cheeseball in my mouth! :)

Blogging 101

Hey y'all. This is my first blog entry post. So I'm not sure what to write. It's been a pretty boring and uneventful Sunday. (As usual) I've been sitting around doing jack shit all day. Sometimes I feel attached to this computer at the hip. The only good thing about today is that a good show comes on HBO at 9:00. True Blood.

Well, I guess I'm going to go try something productive to do, or some food to stuff my face with. :)
