MRI Results, Life, and 101 Update.

So last week I had an MRI on my poor foot to see what was going on inside there. My orthopedist says that everything looks fine, I just have some minor joint swelling on my first and third metatarsals. He also gave me a diagnosis of metatarsalgia, which is just a fancy word for overuse of those muscles. I’m getting new orthotics (fancy braces) and I should be good to go after that. He also gave me the go ahead to start working back into a real shoe. (I’ve tried a little but so far, its only made things worse. I’ll wear my tennis shoes for like 20 minutes max and when I’m done, my poor foot is the size of a cantaloupe and SCREAMING.) But, hey, its not broken anymore and I’m NOT back on crutches, so thats good.

101 in 1001 update: I completed number 23- go to a concert. It was my first concert EVER. I went to see Yellowcard here on campus, and it was AWESOME. Definitely worth the $5 for the ticket!!! Lol but really, it was great. So glad I went, and now I can officially say I’ve been to a concert! Also, I keep looking at my list and some of my items are kinda poopy now that I’m looking back at them so I’m going to go back and revise some of the stuff. But I’m still working at it!

Life… Well, nothing much has been going on. I feel real crappy right now. 😦 But other than that…. Its just  lot of school. Thats all I ever do with my life. Uh…. Yeah… So I guess this part of the entry was unnecessary. But then again, no one reads this so I can post whatever I want.

The moment before the moment of truth

So today is Thursday… Which means my MRI is tomorrow morning. I’ll (hopefully) find out finally whats going on in my foot. Blahhh! But, I get to see my brother too! And thats a happy thing!

Uh.. 5 months later…

So. Obviously I’ve totally failed at this whole thing. Again. Not that it matters, because no one reads this anyway. But anyway. Lemme just say it is EXTREMELY difficult to type with wet nails. #girlprobz lol. So. Quick catch up. I was at camp all summer. Spent most of it in the ER, between asthma attacks, unknown fungal infections, ringworm, an appendicitis scare, and a fractured foot, yeah I was very busy! So, lets start with the last thing- my stupid foot.

I’d made it through staff training. We were all home for the night, and some of the staff was meeting for our annual Buca dinner at the end of training. I had been hanging out with Ian, so that I could see him before I had to go back to camp. I was driving him home when we started fighting. We fought, and then he decided he was finished talking and went to get out of the car. He made it halfway up his driveway before I got out to chase after him. I didn’t know how to fix it but I just knew that it wasn’t going to be over. Not yet. I wasn’t ready to let go of him. I got out of the car and ran after him, sobbing of course. It was sometime then that the fractures (yes, plural) occurred. But I didn’t know anything until the next day when I woke up and couldn’t walk… Yeah. Fun stuff. Went to camp, walked on it a week, and then found out that it was fractured in 2 places. Joy. Its 3 months later and I’m still in a boot, and I have an MRI scheduled for this Friday to try and see whats going on in there. BUT, Ian totally made up for this suckfest because yeah, I fractured my foot that day. But we also started dating that day too 😀 ❤ And for all my friends who still say things about if he hurts me or as long as I’m happy and everything, Yes. I am happy! I honestly couldn’t be happier. Really. Yeah we have our ups and downs but we can work through our downs and thats whats important And my family loves him and everything.

Camp had its ups and downs too. I don’t really want to go into all of that, mostly because no one actually reads this and I guess its just for me. And I don’t want to re-live all that again. I’m back at school. Poo school. I’m soooooooooo ready to be done, but I kinda have 2 1/2 more years to go… Blah! Anyway… Yeah. Super short but again, no one actually reads this or anything. So yeah.

Well Crap.

So… Last night the best friend and I had the biggest fight we’ve ever had, and I’m scared that we can’t fix it. And I think he feels the same way. Basically, he loves me but theres another girl that he can’t even begin to describe his feelings for. I’ve known about her our entire friendship, but its never been a problem before last night. I said that I felt like he put a wall between us, and that she’ll always be better than me, and he basically agreed. He basically said that I’m nothing to him and that he doesn’t love me and that our entire friendship has been nothing. I was at my friend Ariana’s. And I was trashed. Literally I was so drunk, I have no idea how my hangover today isn’t worse. I just have a headache. So I was trying to deal with this, while being drunk, which ultimately resulted in me crying into a grilled cheese sandwich while laying on Ariana’s bedroom floor. Yeah I’m classy.

I’d been thinking about Brenden a lot lately (and for those of you who are reading this, you should know that story). I ran into his mom, and was being nice to her because I always am. Our conversation ended with pleasantries and me outwardly telling her that Brenden should get in touch with me again sometime. Part of me couldn’t believe that i had just consented to that. At one point Saturday night, I got scared that maybe things with Brenden were falling back into place/ getting fixed because Ian hurt me so bad. That I had to get hurt that badly by another guy to be able to forgive, or move on from/with, or whatever with the one before. And I do NOT want to be that girl.

At this point, I don’t know how things are going to pan out with my bestie. I love him, and I’m not leaving. But…. He wants me to come over today, but I don’t know if I can. I don’t think this is something I should handle while hungover, but I also don’t know if this I something that we should try to fix TODAY. Maybe we need some time to cool off… I don’t know. Things are just so complicated.

Oh hey! That was Sunday. Today’s Tuesday. Sorry I SUCK at this whole posting shit thing…. Anyway. Guess what I’m right now? Talking to Brenden. Yeah, I know. Never thought I’d do that again. But, its actually going well. I’m tired of being mad. I wasn’t sure what I wanted from him, or whatever. But, I at least wanted to get to a point where I didn’t hate him anymore. We’ve been talking for a couple hours and things are going well. We have plans to hang out, and I’m kind of optimistic about this. I think that our friendship could be salvageable and I hope it is. I’m kind of excited for something to change for the better for once. Yay! Lets see how this goes.

P.S. Funny Story. We got a piece of mail today from Friendship Village in Dublin for Grandma. I was like “Lol you’re a little to late for that”. My mother, however, actually tore off the response card, wrote “I died 2 months ago. Please leave my family alone.” and sent it in! As much as my mother and I have issues and all that fun stuff, I admit, she’s got balls and damn, I appreciate that sometimes. Watch out for Mary. She’ll fucking kill you. Lol. I’ve been working on an end of the school year, wrap-up post, but clearly I’m lazy/ fictitiously busy lol. But yeah.. Maybe I’ll get that posted before sophomore year starts!!!

Carry On

So….. I’m lacking in posts here. I know. But, I’ve had a lot going on in my life. I moved home from college for the summer. I’ve been home a week and a half. I love being home, love the break from school, and love being only 10 minutes away from my best friend (though I feel like I miss him more when I’m home but not with him than when I’m in Kentucky! Does that make sense?!). But, being home and constantly around my family is not enjoyable. It only took 4 days for me and mom to have our first fight (surprising, since I ran out of meds the day after I loved home and my doctor didn’t call in another refill). And in the week since then, I feel like all we’ve done is fight. Our latest fight was today, they were all criticizing and making fun of me because I did my best to cook stuff today, and some of it went a little of course. I’ve never cooked a steak before, and I think for my first attempt it came out fine. Yeah, its not how we usually have it but it was my first try ever! Nope, I still have yet to hear the end of how I fucked it up. You know what family? I tore a muscle in my arm. I’m in a sling. But I am still cooking you dinner because I know that Mom and Dad both had long days at work and Mom can’t do anything because of her foot. So don’t fucking criticize me because the streak is a little more done than normal, or dinner was later than usual, or the dishwasher wasn’t unstuffed. Seriously, I’m doing my best and it kills that you can’t/don’t/refuse to see that, whatever your reason is. And the cookies. Oh dear GOD the cookies. I made cookies this afternoon, because I felt like baking something and I knew that having some cookies around would be nice so I would stop being tempted to eat mom’s chocolate. Nope. “These aren’t cooked enough” “Ew these are burnt” “These taste burnt but they’re not cooked in the middle” WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!? They’re not even your cookies!!!!!!!! I didn’t make them for you! You don’t like them, then don’t eat them! Its not rocket science!! I feel like it doesn’t matter what I do, I’m going to get criticized. I’m getting discouraged from anything. Seriously, its all I can do to keep myself from just leaving. Staying with a friend, not dealing with them for awhile. Yeah, that’d be great.


On a happy note…. Guess who will be living in the hills for 6 weeks this summer?! This girl 🙂 Yupp- I got the job at camp!!!!! 13 years of hard work, wishing, and wanting, and its finally happening. I first saw a post on Facebook from a friend of mine from camp about her getting a job, and I hadn’t been contacted. I fought to hold back tears at that moment, but I managed to stay level headed enough to think to check my email before legitimately freaking out. And its a good thing I did, because there was an email from the director with all my papers for employment!!! I screamed, Polly screamed, everyone in my house was kinda freaking out lol.  I finally to do the one thing that no matter what has always been a goal, something stable and consistent in my life. And most of my loves from camp also got hired so this summer is going to rock 😀

Sorry Not Sorry

I’m never going to be good enough for you, am I? Clearly I’m not. I do what I think is the right thing, you yell at me because its not. I call you to find out what the right thing is, you yell at me for not knowing. Or you yell at me because apparently its my fault. I’m never going to be good enough. And you know what, if thats the way that its going to be, then fine. I have my friends, I have people in my life that actually care about me, that I want to be around. And that just kills you doesn’t it? That people care about me, and I have places to go other than spending all my time with you? That if you decide to kick me out again, I actually have people I can call and that will be there for me. Its not your life to run anymore, I am finally old enough to take charge of myself and make my own decisions. Do you honestly believe that I’m going to come running back to you after all the shit you’ve pulled on me? Ha! You’re delusional. Whatever, Mom. Sorry I’m not you. Sorry I’m messed up. Sorry I can’t control the fact that I’m Autistic. Sorry things don’t always go your way. Oh wait… Not sorry. I’m not sorry about any of that. I’m done. I’m done with you and all your shit. Seriously.

Mind Games. You’re Really Good At Them.

You have spent all this time trying to convince me that I mean something to you and that you’ll always be there for me… And sometimes thats true. But at the same time, you have also continued to reinforce the reality that everything else comes before me. So don’t get mad at me when I tell you 67 times that no, I am not crying, you’re just imagining things, because it wouldn’t matter if I admitted that I was upset anyway. You would continue to do the other things you’re doing because they matter more. I’m tired of sitting there for hours on end while you watch youtube videos or do whatever else it is that you do. If you want to talk to me, then lets talk. But calling me to just make me sit there is not ok. And telling me that I have to pass a test to surpass other things on your list of importance is sooooooooooo not ok. So don’t get mad at me when I don’t talk to you about things. This is why. It doesn’t matter when I do, because you just prove my hope that you care wrong.

Welp… It only took 3 weeks.

So…. Last night, everything I’ve been holding in for the past 3 weeks just exploded. I have no idea why, but it just did. You know that horrible uncontrollable sobbing  where your face is red/purple, and snot and tears are running down your face, and you can’t breathe but you still somehow manage to be able to make those awkward hiccuping//gasping kinda shrieks? Yeah. Middle of the night, 1 am emotional breakdown. Alone. And now all day today I have been withdrawn from everyone, apathetic, and now I have that sinking guilty feeling that you get (though I have no idea why). I hate these feelings, I hate… I don’t know. I just.. I don’t know. I guess I’m glad it happened, because now it has. But at the same time… I’m not glad it happened. Because now I know I’m going to be more susceptible to these breakdowns now because the wall I built broke.
