Possible trigger:


That last post was on the 21st.

I started running a fever shortly after that and having some medical symptoms... on the 23rd, the psych facility sent me to the ER to get checked out after a fever of 102 and not being able to register a blood pressure. I ended up having a really serious kidney infection that had gone septic. I had to spend 3 days in ICU and another 7 in a regular room for IV antibiotics.

Then I was sent to a different psych hospital, because the one I had been at was full at that point, and spent 7 days there. So, all in all, I spent 25 days in the hospital. With two brief ambulance ride and one cab trip in there. Didnt get to go home at all during that time.
glad you're back and seem to be doing swell. That must've been really hard for you- all of it.

Thanks bp! Yea, definitely trying... we had been feeling better at the first psych facility and were getting close to going home. Probably going to be Tuesday. Then Sunday we got sent to the ER... we started getting depressed and sui while we were in the medical hospital for the sepsis... started crying everyday, multiple times a day. Hiding it from the nurses and not telling the psych. We were telling him we were sui, just not how bad. We didn't want to have a sitter again. That was one of the more annoying things from the first hospital. We had a sitter the whole time.

Thanks moose! It was pretty hard. We started crying in the third hospital because we just wanted to go home... and we still had one hospital to go, and knew it. We are still getting used to society and people again. Mostly just talking to people in therapy and doctors and a couple friends/family members. Our circle is very limited right now, by choice. We are slowly introducing more people back in.

We may disappear again, if it becomes to much talking to people. But we are going to try.

HI Innerzone. It's actually the opposite. Our plan is to live in Czech Republic first (at least a year), then retire in France.

An advantage to eventually living in France is that both of our French language skills are good, not just one (Hubby speaks Czech, but I do not). Also, hubby was interested in a better climate, which he thinks/thought France has. Czech Republic is quite overcast during more months.

It's hard to explain, but my husband has some reservations about life in Czech Republic. The problem is that his memories are mostly from communist Czechoslovakia and not the now more democratic Czech Republic. He has criticized Czech culture, but really he doesn't fully know how/if certain things have changed. When he came to the US in the 1980s, America seemed an almost utopia. Sadly, it's not a utopia. It has issues like other places, though perhaps not the same ones. Ditto for France.

What he's experienced is the notion that "The grass is greener on the other side." Truth is, you don't fully know that until you live on the other side for a while. And what is green to one isn't necessarily to another.

I assume there was a med change hopefully?

Been "Home" for a few days. At least I have a bed to sleep in, food to eat, and the luxuries I'm accustomed to. Right now things are quiet and peaceful but it won't always be this way. I guess I'll just enjoy it while it lasts. I need to find a new job and figure out life again. I'm too damn tired to keep this charade of a life up much longer.

Our air quality has been downgraded from "hazardous" to "very unhealthy". Hopefully it'll keep heading in that direction. Still, the library cancelled my hold pick up because they're closed due to the smoke. I have to reschedule. Was really looking forward to it. Hopefully I can get in soon. Well, yanno, not "in", but up to the front door.

Oh. And I came home last night (my "Friday") to find I hadn't closed the freezer door all the way. Nearly everything thawed. Unfortunately, I had just filled it. Fortunately, I don't have much space (one shelf of a small refrigerator's freezer), so it's not tons of food. (And fortunately, my roommate only had a bag of veggies in there.)

Mood-wise, I don't know. Just going through the motions. Very blah.
