Home sick from work this weekend. I’d been feeling increasingly more and more tender in my lower abdominal region for the last few days, and yesterday I went to the doctor. I was diagnosed with a bladder and kidney infection. :( My tenderness got so bad after I left the office that it took me 10 minutes to walk a block to grab a coffee, and, unable to get myself home, I laid in a park until Mark came to pick me up hours later (I had a couple really good books in my bag- the key to a good life if you ask me- so it wasn’t so bad). It’s been a rough couple of days, I’m on antibiotics but right now I can’t walk or stand for more than a few minutes without pain. The worst is I don’t feel sick, I have lots of energy and an appetite and I’m stuck on the couch, my muscles melting off of me, my belly feeling like a giant water balloon, and I’m sooooo bored. The punk rock flea market is this weekend and I considered calling the venue to see if they have wheelchairs on site (Mark said he’d push me around) but I’d feel too conspicuous and weird. Wahhhh. Guess there’s always biology homework to do… (btw been updating genpopbio.tumblr.com if you want to read about the super cool class that I’m taking.)
From Earth Crisis: “Come celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Firestorm EP with us! We’ll be playing the EP in it’s entirety, and also some rarely played other songs. We’ll also have limited edition merch designs!”
It’ll be like being 16 again. I can’t wait. See y’all in Philly!
