The Big Move

I am a girl overwhelmed.

We saved up all of our money.  We put it into the purchase of a new mattress (as I need something softer than my twenty year old brick!) and a television.

We viewed a place to move that we thought would be underwhelming, but it made us so pleased!  It is a half of a duplex out in the suburbs, where we get our own driveway, backyard doors and patio, all hardwood and tile flooring, and hopefully no drug dealers! So now we have to dive into the world of finding even more money as we will have to be paying two separate rents and a damage deposit (and all of the other bills!) at the same time!

I feel 'in over my head'.
I feel excited.
I feel sore and tired (as per usual).

I need to work harder.  I need to work harder on this relationship, I need to work harder with myself and my health, and I need to work harder in order to get our basic needs covered.

If this works out...
I know it will be better.

Also, my gastric emptying study came back quite abnormal (as in likely gastroparesis abnormal), so I have been put back on lots of Domperidone and am back on a 95% liquid diet.  Good times all around.  At least I know I'm not crazy!

Wish me luck my loves!! I'm going to need it with this huge endeavor!

xoxo,
Annie

I had to look up gastroparesis. Ick! That must be horrible! Hope the meds help you feel better. The new place sounds good.

That does sound overwhelming. Praying the move goes smoothly. Sorry to hear about the mostly liquid diet.
