More stuff from my brain

I just have a few things on my mind.

figured I'd write them somewhere.

first off. Mebsie is here, for my birthday. On Monday we went up to Conneticut again, to see Melissa & Emily. I know I had said that I wasn't going to go back up, however Melissa had to be moved to a facility because the home care nurses were unable to control her pain. The facility is much closer to me (1 1/2hrs) and its also about 10mins from Emily. So we had a nice day.

yesterday was my 23rd birthday, meaning I am now 21yrs past expiration date, lol. (I was not supposed to live to see 2) I had a pacemaker check in the morning, battery has 1-8 months left on it. The rest of the day I spent in bed. I was super cranky, and not feeling well. I did get a bunch of camera accessories & a gift card for a massage, which is awesome.

I leave for the condo on April 3rd, I'm excited to get out of here again. I'm really wanting to go on a road trip but right now my mom doesn't want me to go. I'm frustrated. I hate not doing anything with my life, but I've been told I'm not mentally stable enough to survive in the real world yet.

there is more, which I'll get back to later....

Real Life

for part of the past 2 weeks I've done things that normal people do.
went to a bar/karaoke, a party, hung out with friends. I do wish I had other friends that lived near me. I'd love do do things like this more often. *foreveralone*

one of the hardest things I've had to do

I know I say this a lot, but this is one of the hardest things I had to do...

As many of you know, one of my dearest friends Melissa Hauser is on hospice. (end of life home care) 2 weeks ago yesterday we were talking and I asked her if she thought she would make it to Monday (which would be 3 days later) and her reply was "I'm trying hun, I'm trying".
the next morning (saturday) I backed up my shit, and got in my car, and drove to her. I spent that day with her before returning to Emily's house, which is where I was spending my nights. The next few days I made the drive from Cheshire to Vernon & back to visit Melissa. Then I decided to give the family more alone time and started going only a few days a week. It has now been exactly 2 weeks since I got here, and true to form, Melissa is still hanging on. Unfortunately I need to go home on Monday. It breaks my heart, but I have 10 doctor appointments to make, and go to, before April 3rd. I also may be getting surgery during this time as well. It has also been 3 weeks since I've seen my mom, and she is getting VERY anxious. Yesterday I said my goodbyes to Melissa, for the last time. We hugged for a long time. It was so hard, walking out that door and knowing I'd never be back. I'd never see her again. I'd never see her sweet and loving dog, Abby, again. We would never make our heart hands again. It felt so wrong, I felt so cold, just walking down her driveway. I sat in my car, just looking at her house, crying, for a good 15mins before I drove away, for the last time. Now I know, Melissa is not gone yet, however, I will not be back. It is a 3+ hour drive, and it makes my mom very nervous. I will most likely drive up for the service, when that time comes. But that will be different, I will not be driving up for a visit with my dear friend, I will be driving up to mourn her. Melissa is an amazing friend, and it kills me that I cant be there with her. I love you Melissa.
