One of the doctors was opening my mouth while saying “Oh lord I can smell the sugar in her breath that’s not good that’s not good at all,” I was in pain. Next morning, I woke up in a hospital room with my mom on my side I have never felt safe while being in pain at the same time, she told me “Sweetie you have diabetes do you know what that
Luke did not want anyone to know about him being sick so Julie was supposed to pick him up and then take him to the doctor. When they got to the doctors office the waiting room was full of sniffling kids. Forty minutes went bye and the door to the outside of the office had opened and Luke’s mom rushed in: “Nancy! Why are you here? The doctor told me to come.
The next 14 hour were the most excruciating hours of my life,I had never been so terrified. I had to be strong for her and the family, I had to be their rock. As my mother laid in the hospital recovering, I filled in the empty slot of mother's role. I was a high school student during the day and in the evening I was the chef, the caretaker, and the nurse. On the weekend I worked as a cashier to help our financial woes.
We all got in the car and drove to the hospital, when we got there they were packed so it took a very long time. My grandma was working at the same hospital. She met us down in the waiting room. When we finally got in the they gave me a shot that hurt a lot the doctors said that they gave it to me because there was rust on the nail. They said to my mom that it would be awhile before I get help so they gave me a iPad and turned on the TV.
I learned quicker than others and was more intellectual than they were and because of these things I never really had friends. I passed all my classes with A’s or B’s. My grade average was high and I was prepping for college courses. My family had been telling me of all the great things I could do but never prepared me for the hard times to actually achieve any of these goals. During my summer break of 2011, I broke my ankle on father’s day.
This caused problems all over my body because of the pressure on both my brain and spinal cord. My symptoms were different every day based on what area of my brain was feeling the pressure. Needless to say, the biggest problem with living with Chiari is the symptoms. At first, I struggled with a migraine or two per week. However, I blamed my headaches from the stress of having two young children at home.
When I was around ten years old, I broke my femur skiing. It was a pretty bad break, and I ended up having to stay in the hospital for two and half weeks in traction, and then a body cast for four months, followed by extensive rehab and physical therapy. This injury played a huge role in my life and is actually what motivated me to go into the health care industry, specifically nursing. Because of my injury, I wasn’t able to go to school for a lot of that time. I had two tutors that would come and help me with school.
I Hate You, Means I Love You Ch.11 *Nico´s P.O.V. * “Thalia, are you up?” I said while knocking on the door of her hotel room. A couple of minutes went by, before I heard a groan and Thalia´s heavy steps. Many would think that since she was a hunter her steps should be lighter and hard to notice, and they are. Her steps are feather-like 90 percent of the time, the thing is that she hates mornings so she express her feelings by dragging her feet and making as much noise as possible.
At that age, I had to be able to be around other kids every day, and if I was homeschooled, how could I do that? Being 10 years old, I argued with her logic anyway. Fifth grade was a hard year, I suffered a lot from anxiety and “bouts of sadness” which we later learned to be depression. Sometimes, I would just shut down when too overwhelmed and my eyes would glaze over. I’d just go silent.
Even though I was born with perfectly normal hearing I am now far from it. As an infant, and even to this day I suffer from chronic ear infections. By the age of two I was using my first set of hearing aids to help make up for my sensorineural hearing loss. As time went on and my hearing continued to diminish, from mild, to moderate, and now sever to profound hearing loss, my hearing aids quickly became too weak to work for me. I am currently on my fourth set of hearing aids, the most powerful that exist as of now.
