A lupus blog…

Now that you know, this is my life…

Happy Hump Day, bitches! I am happy to say that this week has been much less exhausting than last week. I really thought my brain was going to explode by last Friday. But, it didn’t, and here I am to dump my brain like a truck, truck, truck.

Since we’re talking about not having any fucks to give, I must confess that lately I’ve been feeling the same way as Grumpy Cat. I don’t know if it’s this weather, being bored at home, hating the way I look, being in limbo with all my lupus treatments, depressed about the out-of-order baby making lady parts… I’m a little unhappy right now. I’m trying to shake this feeling because it’s not ME. 
Tomorrow I have my chemo infusion and see McDicky. I had my first infusion at his office the beginning of February. I’m very particular how my port gets accessed (don’t come near me without wearing a mask), but when I walked in and the nurse said “Hi MarLa! The blue chairs are heated and have massagers,” she could have come at me without gloves or chloroprep, and I probably wouldn’t have cared. Toasty buns and happy muscles make for a faboosh chemo experience!
Hooray for poison, toasty buns, and lazy eyes!
After my infusion, I saw McDicky. He made some changes to my meds, most importantly, lowered my steroids. I’m definitely feeling the effects, and it’s hard to tell if I’m tired and achy from the steroid wean or from lupus itself. I had a pretty crazy weekend (well, my equivalent to crazy these days), and I’m paying for it now.
Steve and I had a great anniversary celebration. On Friday night, we stayed in and opened a bottle of wine. 1.5 glasses later I was singing along to the 80’s Love Song Pandora station (thank you, Nicole) and giggling at everything. Once I started serenading Steve with a little She’s Like The Wind is when things got a little fuzzy. Luckily, I recorded it and put it on Instagram, so the memories will last a lifetime. Also, what happened to my tolerance?

On Monday, I attempted a crock pot meal that called for a whole chicken. Did all the prep, turned the pot on, and let that bad boy cook in all his juices for 6.5 hours. Little did this Undomestic Goddess realize was that a plastic bag of guts stuffed in my bird was also getting juicy in the crock pot. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the chicken gave birth to the guts bag and it was floating at the top…

I know some people hate them, but I LOVE L-O-V-E gifs. They make me happy. And sometimes, when hitting The Googles for Mannequin gifs, you stumble on amazing articles that validate your love for one of the best (read: worst) movies ever made.

A woman in ancient Egypt, who travels through time and ends up in Philadelphia? Totally believable.
Read this awesome sauce article.
I haven’t been to the gym or used my juicer in a month. Steve called me out on not using the juicer over the weekend, and I told him I had used it on Friday morning. I didn’t. I lied. 🙁
That’s all I got. I’ll try to get another blog in this week, but with the chemo, I make no promises.
Linking up with the lovely KathyLiz, and Shanna

    Meh – at least your tushy is warm and cozy.. Sending hugs your way and hope Dr. McDicky is doing a good job at least or all us bloggers can get together and ruin his reputation via Yelp and other reputable sources. 😛 Lol Hopefully, all this will help you and you will start to slowly but surely feel better… Happy Hump Day my lovely MJ 🙂 -Iva

  12. I have to say, I'm so glad I found your blog recently. You amuse the hell out of me. And amen to gifs – they make life worth living! Hope you'll feel a little better soon!

      I'm glad you found my blog too, and I'm always glad to hear I can make someone laugh. All hail to those animated little pictures. I can't get enough of em!

  13. Alyssa Whitt says:

    The Will Smith gif made me LOL. That's so me!

  14. Stephanie says:

    Hey she called you Marla, she gets a win no matter what the chairs are like! I love gifs, seriously. And the Will Smith one is awesome!

  15. Rachael says:

    I'm sorry your're feeling tired and achy!! Maybe McDickey will have some advice for you tomorrow. I hope you don't have to spend an eternity in his waiting room. I love gifs too! I'm glad you posted the Mannequin gif because after reading your last post, I realized I have never seen that movie! So I of course had to google it and read the plot during my commute to work yesterday! I can't promise I'll rush home to watch it, but the next time I'm flipping through channels and it happens to be playing, I'll definitely give it a watch! I hope your appt goes well tomorrow!

  16. holli says:

    Marla i laughed out loud so hard as i read about the floating chicken bag!!! That is so something i would do.
    You know what goes well in a juicer? ice cream and chocolate syrup. yep its true. and delish!

  17. Girl you better be juicing tomorrow!

    I've cooked a chicken in the oven with the bag in there before. Shit happens and also YOLO.

    Sorry you're in a funk. I'm here if you need me.

  18. Kim Turner says:

    I hate those bags of gunk inside the chickens!!!
    Hooray for the awesome chairs – you should get pampered when you are having to be injected with all that poison/medicine!!!
    I hope that you have a week where you feel better!!!

    • MarlaJan says:

      I wish it would have said on the package "bag of guts inside!" How about a little warning, ya know? I'm hoping that a nail tech comes out to do my nails when I'm getting my infusion today!

  19. Cheriese says:

    I love a good gif! And you always seem to pick the best ones!
    Hope you feel better soon dear xx

  20. I love gifs too! And you found some funny ones. I can never find one I want to use.

  21. Joey says:

    I just want to squeeze you. You have the best damn attitude I've ever seen. I mean–toasty buns DO sound nice, though 😉 <3

  22. OK I read the article…and now really want to see that movie. For some reason I love awful movies. Hope you're feeling less achy soon love.
