Have been avoiding the cardiologist because it took six phone calls and four faxes to get me so frustrated I straight up gave up on being seen, but my blood pressure’s been a disaster today and I’m starting to think that ‘lay down/pass out/wake up hours later’ is probably not the most medically sound way of treating this shit.
Getting an official diagnosis means I officially have Cardiac Involvement—— I’m mostly used to being a sick person structurally, which is way less scary than Heart Stuff. I’ve tried everything from salt to compression stockings, but it’s gotten more severe over the last year or so.
I feel dumb that I’m so upset by this, but sometimes being a Sick Person is hard.
idk man, imagine showing Arthur Weasley a gif for the first time. At first of course he’d just think it was a normal wizard photograph, but then you’d explain that muggles made it and his heart would just explode with joy over these muggles making such amazing shit even though they have no magic at all. How amazing. How inventive.
Maybe whenever you’re feeling bad about yourself imagine how much Arthur Weasley would enjoy meeting you.
I passed both written tests and the skills test and am now a certified lifeguard!!!
This class was ridiculous, and my legs are so bruised from climbing out of the pool over and over while running drills that one of my coworkers gasped when she saw my legs this morning, and my arms are noodles from practicing CPR, but it’s over with and I don’t have to re-cert for two years.
I’m home for the first time in a week, it’s glorious. Judging by how aggressively I’m being cuddled/ my face is being licked, Zoe missed me a lot.
