this post might be boring to some, so feel free to skip it if you want.
Its basically a run down of today.
Firstly, I slept great last night. I really felt like I got a good nights sleep. i actually went to bed at a decent hour, and took meds, then fell into an exhausted sleep.
I woke at 4 AM with a nightmare, usual crap, and I went to the nurses station, one of the nurses was very kind and made me a cup of tea. then I was able to go back to sleep until 7 AM.
I ate breakfast, cerial and a banana, thats what I’ve been having lately. After breakfast I had some chill out time I spent that online doing email, watching youtube, and ordering things on amazon.
Then I went for mid morning tea, every morning at 10:30 there is tea and coffee, biscuits and fruit for all of us.
Did not do much up until lunch time, basically had more chill out time, called my mom, read my book, etc.
lunch was uneventful, I managed to eat a little piece of chicken, but that was it. I just dont like the food in here. My diet is very poor when I am in here. i tend to eat junk food a lot because the real food is so bad. Today for example my potato on the plate was cold when I scooped it up.
After lunch we had care planning group, that was a group where we reviewed our care plans, how best to write them, how to set goals, we evaluated the care plan, it was amazing. I had no idea how much was involved in a care plan! I’d never seen mine! We all have a right to read our care plan, but I didnt realise that the doctor and the rest of the team wrote in your care plan as well as you answering the 5 questions your asked. That was big news to me. So then after group I got Mairead who is a student nurse to read my care plan to me. Maireads been so nice to me, she is kind and I am really liking her and I feel I’ve built up a good rapport with her.
she wears the same perfume that dr. barry wears. So of course I had to ask her if she had it with her. She did, and she got it and gave me some. So now I smell all like dr. Barry and I’m totally like yay this is awesome! I must be the weirdest person, dr. Barry will think I’m a stalker! no really though its so comforting for us to feel close to dr. barry, feel connected to her.
I just went to a guided meditation group a couple of minutes ago, it was good. it was a meditation all about the ocean and whales and I found it so relaxing. And I wasnt even gonna go, but Mairead convinced me to go! Thanks Mairead! 🙂
The rest of my evening is just gonna be relaxation time. I’ll phone a few friends for a chat. I’ll do some more reading. And some more online stuff.
