I have about had it with 2013

In May I was diagnosed with tongue cancer. Luckily it was removed surgically with little effect and I don't need chemo or radiation. But I will be seeing the oral surgeon every three months for the next 5 years.

Then a couple months ago I was told that I basically have no left hip joint and I need a hip replacement. I should expect 8 weeks out of work, and I don't have disability insurance. So I have been putting it off, but it's really starting to affect what I can accomplish and how easily I can accomplish it.

Then today I found out that the stomach pain I've been having is a "large gallstone in the neck of the gall bladder" which will probably require surgery. I have an appointment with the surgeon on Tuesday.

Also today I saw the vascular surgeon for a large bump on the back of my leg that is probably a deep vericose vein. I have to have an ultrasound of the leg on Monday and go back to see the vascular surgeon on the 5th.

I've paid my insurance deductible for this year so it would be awesome to get anything I need done- done before the end of November, when my insurance renews and I'm stuck with a new deductible.

But that doesn't seem likely with all the scheduling, and I still don't know what the treatment will be for the vein.

On top of all that, the SO moved out at the beginning of August so I've been coping with that crap.

Honestly, I will not be sad to see this crappy year end. 2014 can't come soon enough :(

((((Eranda)))) I'm sorry, honey. I know it can seem relentless when things pile up all at once. Sending you strength.

Damn, Eranda!! You have gotten CLOBBERED this year...I can certainly understand why 2013 can't end soon enough for you (except, of course, it'd be nice if the health benefit year could stretch enough for you to be able to get all the "work" done while your deductible's already been paid)!

Sending you lots and lots of strength and mojo too; I hope the things that might resolve w/o surgery DO, and that everything falls into place as smoothly as possible.

I'm so sorry you are going all of this. Sending you mojo and strength.

Thanks guys, I apologize that I was just feeling whiny and put-upon yesterday :/

Most days we can take it, but sometimes you can't help but wonder WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK the world has against you

So... my apologies for being a whiny wimp

Here's hoping for a complete reversal of fortune in 2014; certainly 2013 is memorable for the wrong reasons.

It has to better than this next year.
