Wow...my mini vacation is just about over! It has been almost three weeks since I left my company?
What have I done since my last post? The major event was a 4 days trip to Ocean City Maryland (Mon - Wed) It was AWESOME and I had a great time there with Pop. More about the trip to be logged shortly.
My grandma has been in the hospital since Thursday of last week. She had a surgery, a huge cut in her tummy :~ so the doctor can rearrange her intestines. She's still in the hospital, recovering. I've been calling mom every day/night. I hope mom is taking care of herself while she's taking care of grandma. I so wish I could be there for them but I'm about to start my job soon...
I feel healthy! I can eat. I can run. Last Sunday, I rode from Leesburg to the end of W&OD trail in Purcellvile with the Taylors. However, during my vacation in OC, I had the "attacks" quite frequent, it freaked me out. I also experienced my very 1st disorientation and memory loss while I was out and about with Pop's grandma taking her shopping. It was the day after my OC trip and after I heard from mom that grandma was going under the knives. It felt like I just woke up (I was in a car, driving grandma home at that time) and everything I saw was new, I had no clue what happened, why was I there, what was I doing, etc.
Today, I went to see Dr. Wilder. My health insurance expires today (end of June) so I took this opportunity to go get a quick check up. I was afraid there's something wrong with my BRAIN. Dr. Wilder diagnosed me with "Panic Attack", a disorder that could caused by the hormone therapy I have been on and the surgery back in November. She said I should be on Fluoxetine (Prozac) for 6 months and a blood test is needed. I can't risk getting blood test done today and insurance company not paying it so I'm gonna wait on that (She said to test Lime Decease or something...) I filled my 1st prescription and will go back to see her in 3 weeks.
Talked to Waldo today too. He said I can have flex schedule as long as I'm doing 40 hrs/week. I can do 10hrs/day and start any time of the day. YES! That's great news :) I'm also trying to figure out where do I want to do my 5 training rotations. I want to hit San Diego or Pensacola but I'm not sure if those organizations will be able to provide me with the training I need. I'll have to talk to my mentor once I start my program next week.
