Break is over already???!?!?

I'm not ready to go back to school. Well, kinda though.

I always struggle with the idea of school. Having been homeschooled for so long when I was little, part of me loves being in a school and being around professors and other like-minded people. Learning is something I love so much, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

But I also know that this means I'll have less time to rest and more time spent working and studying hard. I like being busy, but I've also learned lately that me being busy isn't always the best thing because I don't take enough time to rest and take care of myself usually... Sometimes I just can't.

I have a rheumy appt on the 31st and I'm going to see if he'll fill out paperwork to get me into the disability services at UW. It shouldn't be a problem, I don't think. I also need to see if he knows a good opthamalogist because I don't want to have to go to Milwaukee for my appt in March if I don't have to. I also want to play with dosages a little bit here - I don't think the Plaquenil is doing as much now. Hopefully that works and I don't have to switch meds... though if I do I'd rather it be now. My left knee is so swollen that it's making my pants fit ridiculously.

Tomorrow we have our follow-up fitness thing, and I'm honestly worried about being able to do anything. Hopefully it's more him showing us workouts and assessing our body fat and such. I'm not sure I want to know what any of that is :-p

Oh well, going through crazy things like that not alone for a change is really nice.

Here's to a fun day of syllabi and assessments!

  1. Sorry to hear about your knee. I have a rheumy appointment on the 31st too. Woo hoo!
    Hopefully your doc will adjust your meds to suit you better.

  2. Thanks, I'm hoping so. I have a feeling that my medication is making me sick to my stomach, and it's making it hard to want to go to classes and to work.

    I'll be thinking of you at my appointment!

    We didn't end up having our fat-ness assessment because the people at the gym are idiots when it comes to scheduling and love to double-book. Gah, it's so annoying.
