I ended up in the hospital day before yesterday due to an severe allergic reaction. My face, throat, and tongue started to swell really bad and I was having problems breathing. They basically said the same thing as the other doctor and that I was really dehydrated.. They gave me fluids, steroids, allergy shots, something for swelling, and then a week of steroids that I have to take with food everyday. Bad day..My face still isn't completely back to normal swelling wise, I looked like I got hit by a car..Lots of pain when the swelling started to go down. Still not sleeping well at all..
Faye, my sister and I don't share the same dad.. My dad got custody of me when I was 14 because of similar problems that my mom was going through then as well.. Brooke's father is in jail for drugs and also has a history of violence..He tried to kill my mom in front of me twice, once beating her and the second time trying to run her over with his truck. I was 10? Maybe? He's never had any contact with Brooke in her entire life.. He's in prison until 2016 now for tying his girlfriend to a chair when he was high, accused her of stealing from him, and then making his other two children watch while he beat her unconscious with a hammer...But, that's a whole different chapter of life I've tried to forget about.
That's basically how my childhood played out, mom had physically abusive boyfriends, I had to watch it, then keep a little book bag packed in my closet and I knew if my mom came in my room at night we would have to climb out of the window and sneak out.. This wasn't a strange thing to me growing up..This started at like 7 or so.. Story of my life..
I haven't seen a local specialist here yet, I have two at home that I'm probably going to be seeing shortly, I've talked with my doctor about seeing someone here but we haven't made any decisions yet. Right now I'm just trying to stay chill and relax, tired of worrying about everything else.
Sorry to gush..Just have a lot on my mind today.
