Master is back to work today, and we’re both really happy about it. He’s really busy so I haven’t been able to talk to him much today (a few texts via Couple here and there) and it sounds like they are treating him well. They are making jokes and decorated his cubicle Office Space themed! It sounds like a good first day, but I’m sure he will tell me all about it tonight.
I’m struggling a lot today, physically. Being alone isn’t really an issue for me because I’m used to it, but it’s hard when you’re this sick. The issue is my potassium. We thought we had it under control so we increased my medicine for my POTS and even though all we did was add a quarter tablet per day my potassium dropped nearly a full point last week. I’m taking heavy duty potassium supplements that I was prescribed and also getting in lots via my food, but this is just awful. At this rate, it will take months to get to the full dose of the medicine and I’m not looking forward to that. I only seem to feel healthy-ish for about four days and then we increase my medicine and by the time I get my weekly blood draw I am crashing again. This is just awful.
I want to update this blog more, but most of my days are spent just not to pass out.. Which sounds dramatic but even getting to the bathroom has become a major hassle (especially when I’m alone). I just want to be done with all this garbage, but I’m stuck with it for now, I guess. I hate feeling like I’m just missing out on life.
Still, new job for Master and he’s enjoying it there a lot. You really can’t ask for better than that. I’m so glad that this job is working out for him. I just wish things were a little better with my health.
