I started a new medication today. Actually I started two, but they are unrelated except in an oblique way. The first is meant to stabilize my digestive system which has been on the fritz for years now, since 1993 in fact and the other is to tackle an excema which has attacked my ears, which may or may not be related to an excema which has attacked my face, for which I began a new course of medication on Saturday. I'm also due to start another regimen of medication in two weeks time, which will bring my total to no less than nine doses of five seperate medicines per day.
It seems, excessive, but the alternative is a lot of annoyance and the idea that had I been born in an earlier time I'd have died of a wasting illness by now (though none of my afflictions is considered anything like terminal) helps me get through it all. And then there's my trips to the hospital of course. There's nothing like the sight of a young child in a wheel chair with a bald head to put one's life in perspective. I saw such a poor little kid last Wednesday in the car park as I unlocked my mountain bike and I had to crouch down and let it all out. And people actually believe in God!
Its good to be dealing with all these problems though I still have one to go. The recuring pain I've had in my body, just above my left testicle is still there and I'm still waiting to hear from a specialist on that one. I think the old sod has forgotten me... again. In the mean time, the pain comes and goes. A blood test reassurred me it was not a cancer, but I remain in ignorance as to the cause. Yeah, the good times just never end in Århus!
My hope is, by summer I'll be mobile again. I can't wait to swim in the sea with the Snoos. Mette and her parents are going to London in a few weeks time, and of course they're taking Freja. Once agan I'll be left behind thanks to my fucked up intestine. Five days or so all alone whilst life passes by. Some times I wish I did believe in God because then I could beg for mercy. As an agnostic there is nothing to cling to but medical science...
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
