I went to the doctor this morning and he gave me a prescription for Alinia, which was the second Giardia medication I took last time.
It wasn’t as bad as the Tinidizole that I took first, which didn’t work. That stuff was disgusting. The Alinia makes me sick though. :(
I took the first pill with lunch and then struggled not to throw up for a few hours. Now my pee is very neon and I have already pooped three times. Fun stuff, fun stuff.
I just want to get this over with. I think I have to take it for three days, maybe four days, twice a day. It’s not a normal 10 day course of antibiotics. The pills are really strong.
I am so tired of life being dictated by my gross poop. I have fond memories of times in my life before I caught giardia. I still remember what it was like to just go somewhere and have fun without mentally calculating the risk of my bowels becoming angry, or what it was like to walk around without pain. Even when I was mostly better these past few months I was still very paranoid about it. I have intestinal PTSD or something.
Thanks to this ass clown and 10,000 of his friends and relatives. :(
This is what you’re looking for:
The doctor thinks I have chronic giardiasis, and he referred me to an infectious disease doctor. They are supposed to work me into the schedule in the next week or two, before our insurance lapses between jobs. We lose insurance on May 15th, which is when Tyler’s last day at Toyota will be. (He’s using his vacation time at Toyota and also starting work at the new place at the same time during the first two weeks of May.)
Our insurance with the new company starts on June 4th. I hope to be moved or in the process of moving by then. I am so anxious to set the closing date! I need to planimmediately! Hah.
My mother-in-law has very generously offered to let us go ahead and install the laminate wood flooring and do the painting ASAP instead of moving in and waiting on the reimbursement. She said we can just pay her back once the reimbursement hits our accounts.
I’m excited to get that squared away. I need to figure out how to get estimates. Difficult since we aren’t living there. But at least Tyler will be up there close by, so that should help a lot. I’m scared it will be super expensive. I wish Tyler was interested in doing most of the work ourselves, but he’s not a DIY sort of person.
We also found a home inspector today. The appointment for that is Sunday morning. I guess Tyler told him how we couldn’t find anyone and so he offered to come on Sunday when they normally don’t work. Thank goodness he is a nice guy!
Tyler is going to be living in a hotel in Columbus starting Sunday. I know he’s very excited.
This is weird, but I feel like when he’s not home it’s very easy for me to keep the house clean and organized. It’s not so much his lack of mess being there, it’s just knowing I am the only one responsible for cleaning up the messes. Instead of fuming that he’s not helping, I know I have to do it and so I get right down to business happily.
May is going to be an intense month for me. Let’s get it started!!
