Chemo? Hope it fixes these crazy Cells.

July 22, 2016



I am currently sitting here waiting on my nemesis.  If you all know me, you may know I hate my mailman. YES, he is my nemesis.  In all my 33 years of using the United States postal service I've never had any problems…until we moved here…since day 1 he has had an attitude with me.  So, I call him my nemesis. 


I am waiting on him not to bring me something cool I got online, nope, no amazon prime; I am waiting on him to bring me my chemo.  Yep, my medicine.  I am going to be taking a new medicine that is normally used to treat leukemia.  Don’t worry, I don’t have leukemia, I have mast cell disease, similar but oh so different.  I will officially be taking what one classifies as chemotherapy.  Joy.  We tried everything up until this point and now, it has come to the big guns.  The funniest part?  I am allergic to the red dye that coats the medicine so I have to soak it in boiling water first to remove that before swallowing the damn horse pill.


I hope it works.  If it does, I will be so grateful. It’s about $100,000 a year medication.  Over priced?  I would say so…we need medical reform.  Thankfully I pay my 3 insurance premiums faithfully so that this isn’t an issue for me and this medication is covered…yes they wont cover the $3 compounded Benadryl but they will cover the $100,000 chemo no questions asked.  Wish me luck.


ALSO, this week I began filming one a day Spanish lessons.  Each video is 5 minutes and teaches you Spanish, from the very beginning.  It’s easy, fast and I am kinda funny. My plan is to make one every day for the year.  It is a lot of work for me but I miss teaching A TON and so it has given me some purpose.  I have filmed a few extras for days I am not feeling well enough…I’m trying to think ahead!


So become bilingual, its fast, its free, its funny…what more do you want?!


Wish me luck world. I’m trying my hardest.
