Ok, so tomorrow will be the first proper time in about a year that I have been on no painkillers, and no antibiotics and no Fentanyl patch. Needless to say I'm a little anxious, but I've been feeling amazing recently and the sooner I'm off painkillers, the sooner I'll be able to get my life back to normal (going to college without feeling drowsy and going out clubbing on the weekends and being able to drink alcohol!!)
I know I only wrote a blog the other day but I think this is quite a milestone in regards to my recovery and finally getting some normality back into my life! Plus I like to keep all the ostomates on here updated on how I'm doing, and you don't HAVE to read my blogs! I know I tend to ramble on about pointless things and it probably gets quite boring to read about my life over and over but I just feel really happy at the moment that things finally seem to be getting better after a rubbish 14 months!!
Other than getting off all the medication and having no pain recently, another reason I'm so happy right now is thanks to this site! I usually get messaged by people every week or every fortnight and I'm usually quite cautious as to who I reply to because with it all being online you know you have to be careful, and as I'm quite a young girl I'm always wary. But a few months ago I was messaged by one of the few people similar age to me who had been through a similar experience. Little did I know that this person would turn out to be pretty awesome. I don't usually add people on Facebook because it's so personal but after I did I was glad I had done it. Recently we both got Skype and I talk to him basically all day everyday even though he's all the way in America! It's amazing really to think that we had almost the same thing wrong and we totally get each other even if we are miles apart. I also love the fact how everything seems different in America to over here in England!! It's crazy when I think I came on here to make friends and share experiences, and I ended up meeting the most perfect person I could probably think of. I know he'll probably read this, but I wanted to say that he's made me so happy after all the crap I've dealt with recently I honestly thought I would be depressed, but thanks to this amazing guy I'm feeling happier than I have in a long time. He really doesn't know how amazing he's been, and even though I've told him, I know he won't really get it because I can't even explain it properly!
Right now life couldn't be better and it is thanks to feeling amazing, getting my life back, and having amazing people around me. Right now he couldn't make me happier if he tried (well unless he came to the UK :)) and I've got my bag to thank for all this goodness and meeting the best person ever.
