I’m going to Disneyland!
Hey guys, I’m currently packing and getting ready to go to California to see my good friend and fellow blogger Steph Mignon (click HERE to check her out–she’s fabulous) and while there me and Mr. MLACS have planned a day trip to take BG to Disneyland. I’m finally getting excited! Took awhile, what with all the literal sh*t hitting the fan around here–I dared not hope that this vacation would actually happen. But here we are, 2 days from departure and my health is stable, I feel pretty decent and I appear to have my sh*t together-ish. I might even skip taking my valium for the plane ride (anxiety post-9/11) because I dealt with my fear through EFT tapping and I don’t feel freaked out like I normally would. I forsee us having a great time with our friends and making precious memories with BG.
Oh! And I get my hair done tomorrow–fingers crossed that it makes me feel like a “California Girl”. Got some cute dresses to wear on vacation too (couple new, couple I just never wear because I live in sweats and leggings).
But I don’t get to leave chronic illness at home. It comes with.
I had to buy a lock for my suitcase to make sure my kid and Steph’s kids cannot get into my vast array of pills. I had to buy a cooling bag to carry my Humira injection pen. I have a bikini for the beach but I have to wear a rash guard over it because I am so sensitive to the sun (I feel flu-like when I get too much) and now I’m also prone to skin cancer due to the drugs I’m on. And I always have to wear a hat.
Fingers crossed that my health stays stable and that I don’t catch any horrible viruses due to being on 3 different immunosuppressants. The IBD Specialist had me get a flu shot and a pneumonia vaccine (Prevnar 13) so at least if I do catch the plague I might be spared.
But hey, I’m going to Disneyland! Yay!
