Isn't It Ironic...

Posted by MANDI at 4:25 PM
No, not the Alannis Morisette song. My life. Or at least parts of it. What parts? These ones:

- The doctors discovering that I have a (mild!) bleeding disorder and then ordering lots and lots of blood tests to get to the bottom of it. It's to do with not clotting properly and today they took 18 vials of blood - 9 from each arm - to prove it. I'm thinking they're taking it faster than I can make it!

- Having a sucky headcold and craving fluids but most especially looking forward to a nice big bowl of soup for dinner and being told that, because of today's blood tests and the drug they were trying on me to see if it helped the clotting process, I had to restrict my fluid intake for the next 8 hours. Just little sips and not too much. And no, not soup for dinner. Sorry.

- Getting up at 5.30 every morning to walk, watching what I eat and cutting out soft drinks in an attempt to stay at the size I've managed to get down to then buying a face cream that has the term 're-plumping' in its name.

Got any major irony happening in your world?

My only ironic item of late is our legislature passing the Flexible School Calendar Bill which legally limits schools to fit their required hours between Labor Day and Memorial Day; doesn't seem that 'flexible' to me.

Yes! Watching back to back episodes of Masterchef while eating hospital food!

You're right B, that doesn't sound flexible at all!
Oh Sam :( That's worse than ironic, it's just plain awful! Do you need some 'real' food snuck in to you?

I´m sorry but I had to grin on your statement, they´re taking your blood faster than you can make it ;-)
Sadly well said - hope they can help you soon!
Wow, you are disciplined with the 05:30 walk!
