It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

When It Rains, It Pours – Quick Get Me An Unbrella!

July 25th, 2014 · 2 Comments


Or better yet, get me a tent!  I have seen no less than ten doctors in one month, all for various reasons and complications.  One doctor who made a house call for my bronchitis, ended up telling me to get dressed and he would drive me to the emergency!  I did, and he did,  he was so nice.

I ended up staying overnight in the hospital.  My first time and hopefully my last!  Well, not counting when I was born, of course, but I don’t remember, so it doesn’t count.  Apparently I didn’t have enough oxygen in my blood.  Who knew that could be so dangerous?  I also had my first ambulance ride.  It was another first I could have done without.

Hey, guys! Uh, you forgot to strap me in!

Speaking of firsts, I was tortured (No, the word is not too strong!) when they needed to take blood from an artery in my wrist.  (It’s nothing like drawing blood from a vein. That’s a piece of cake.)  This happened while Mercury was retrograde in Gemini and also during a new Moon.  It was absolutely the worst time to do this if you know anything about medical astrology.  They tried to draw blood 8 times, each time was excruciatingly painful.  They succeeded only twice, the other six times, shall we say, were bonus tortures.

Then I saw an ophthalmologist from hell!  I was afraid there were complications with the scleral buckle I had put in 14 years ago for a torn retina.  No, everything was fine, but it’s a miracle this doctor didn’t tear my retina out!  She was so brutal and the worst part, I think she enjoyed her brutality.  You couldn’t pay me to go see her again!


To make matters worse, the antibiotics I took, ended up giving me a whole other problem that needed to be treated.  Why do doctors do this when an easy solution is to prevent the second infection from ever occurring?  I mean, is that too much to ask?  Really!

Anyway, I haven’t been on the internet as much because I’m still not up to par.  I’m not sure if it’s the medications that are making me feel this way or it’s because I haven’t fully recovered yet.  Either way, I think I’ll be happy to say goodbye to July and look forward to a healthier August.  Fingers crossed!


Maya Muses:  I have to run.  I need to pick up lab work, plus my mammogram results, and yes, this afternoon I have another doctor’s appointment!  Maybe I should put on my dancing shoes….

    I hope the rain has passed and the sunshine has returned, either way, I’m sure you’re dancing.
