scarletmorning: (Mercedes)
I'm finally feeling a bit more like myself so I guess I could post a quick update on my foot situation.

- I still haven't had that OP. I still got them steel sticks in my foot to keep it stable. But! It seems that my foot is finally ready on Thursday. I'm so happy I could piss myself (which is reeeeeally unpleasant in reality. Believe me, I had the misfortune to test that.)

- This week and a half really messed with my head/emotions. I'm still taking Sertralin for my depression, which I couldn't from the day of the accident to yesterday. And it was really terribly noticable. Homesickness, pain, inability to walk and do anything that you can't do/reach from a wheelchair are one hell of a mix.

- One night I had no roommates. First I thought it would be nice.  Then the night came. I had a really strange apocalyptic dream that felt nastily real. When I wake up, everything is dead silent. Literally. No sound in my room, no sound outside the window and no sound in the hallway. And how often do you think that happens in a hospital? That was one terrifying night.

- I miss our cat and my piggiessssssssss. I want to cuddle them so bad. And hear all the whining and squeaking and purring.

- I'm burning through so many books right now compared to the last months. But I still need that distraction from the boring and depressive situation. Maybe I'll do a little post about the books later, because some were fun and worth rec'ing them.

- I'm so, so glad I feel better now (I can take my Sertralin again) and am in practically no pain. I've got a new roommate who's nice. And, the best, it seems like the OP is finally scheduled and will not be delayed again.
