Going to Thailand in a month (33 days). Counting down. I am terrified about how this trip is going to affect my body, but going to see my boyfriend is going to be so amazing.
Also the thought of a custom-made mojito whenever I want it is going to be amazing.
I have never been somewhere with clear ocean water. I have been to the Pacific ocean and the northern Atlantic, never even to the Caribbean. Actually this isn’t true, the Mediterranean…I have been there…is pretty clear, but not entirely.
I have to call today to get shots. It is crazy I am going half-way around the world. It is also crazy I am going to a place where you have to get shots. I need/want to get Hep. A, typhoid fever, and some kind of anti-malarial whatever. I hear they have malaria in the Phuket area sometimes now. Kind of crazy since it such a traditionally resort area. But the CDC recommends that going to the southern peninsula you should definitely get Hep. A and typhoid fever. I also need a tetanus booster; I think that expired two years ago, maybe three.
Embarrassingly, I used to pronounce (years ago) Phuket like F*ck-it. Glad I got that figured out now. 🙂 Not because I was being an ass, just because I honestly thought that’s how you pronounced it.
Okay will post again later with how I am doing in other arenas. This morning I am accepting my fibromyalgia and taking my time to get up. My stomach is churning as usual. I have trouble accepting my stomach troubles every day. I need to work on that so much. I need to work on loving myself anyway and realizing they aren’t always my fault. And that I can’t just not eat to fix them. They are there. I think they are the most bothersome of all my symptoms.
