Day 8 - Free of the Hospital!

They let me out today! The nurse woke me up around 11am and told me she was there to take out my Picc Line. I was half asleep and she took it out. The second nurse came in and gave me my paperwork and took me downstairs to the car. I didn't get a chance to see the doctor before I left but she told me to follow up with him as needed.

I'm still in a great amount of pain - especially when I eat but I guess that's to be expected since he cut into the muscle that controls bile release for digestion. I wonder how long that will take to heal.

So, I'm at home, trying to get comfortable and trying to rest. It's hard because my sleeping schedule is so off from the hospital. I didn't get enough sleep because I was poked every 15 minutes. Now, I can't seem to settle down to sleep but I'm tired and really anxious for some reason.

I feel like I'm about to have a panic attack and there's no reason for it. I'm tired of being ill. I get frustrated not being able to do things with my friends because my digestive system severely handicaps me. I just hate feeling left out of everything because I'm too tired or sick to participate. It's to the point where people don't even ask me to do anything anymore. That really sucks. =(

At the moment, I'm just really lonely and bored.
