Sorry I haven't posted in a while SP!!

Sorry for not posting, but I promise, I'm trying! Finals are all next week, and you all know how I am. When I post a blog I like to talk about EVERYTHING that is happening or has happened... well, a LOT has happened since my last post.

Soooo here we go!

On April the 19th, which was a Friday, that lovely morning I went to work for my 8 to 4 shift. We were talking vegan cookbooks and just having an OK morning in general. I'll be honest, I haven't slept much lately (during this time), and was stressed beyond belief for multiple things. Well, sometime after that, without me not noticing, I had a grand mal seizure. I came back from it and found a ton of people around me, EMT and all, telling me I had to go to the hospital. I was pretty disoriented, so I told them I was fine, and I had to get back to work. Well I was I shipped off to the hospital. I was in SO much pain, and they left me in pain for almost two hours or more. Did X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, etc etc... Until FINALLY they let me know that I dislocated my shoulder, fractured the top part of my humerus, and tore all the ligaments in that right shoulder. Ouch. It was awful. Stayed in the hospital for only two days and was GLAD to leave. Their food is NOT vegan friendly AT ALL.

Anyway, I found out that I'm not allowed to drive, meaning I am screwed going to Marshall. I really think my seizure was due to medication so, I think after a few more weeks of no seizures I'll start driving again, even if my husband absolutely refuses that I do. Nothing has been found concerning my seizure, so I'm almost certain it is a one-time deal.

Some good news though, I found out that if I take 1 course this summer, that means I will graduate! Awesomeawesome. :) Makes me SO excited. I think my plan after my B.A. will be to take pharmacy pre-req classes at the university down the street, really close to home so I don't have to worry or dread transportation every day I go to school. Makes me excited! However, I'm still thinking about studying and taking the GRE so that I could apply for a M.A. program in I/O psychology if I wanted to, in case pharmacy school doesn't work out. Hopefully it does though. I'm glad to be done with my B.A. though. I considered switching majors but I felt like there was "unfinished" business had I done so. I DO NOT regret my B.A. in psychology, I have learned a ton that I constantly refer back to on a day to day basis.

Oh yeah, one more thing, YES I have been bad about weighing in, but I weighed in the other day and found myself at 176 lbs! Yay! :) I am OFFICIALLY at my half way point! -50 lbs! Go me, go me! I got myself a haircut a few days before, as well as contacts. I have gotten a lot of looks, and compliments as of late. Even with my messed up shoulder I can't help but smile! I look at my little tracker and see my arrow right smack in the middle, and it's awesome. Awesome because I felt like I would never be at this point. I'm excited to see how I look when I'm in my 150s. I'll post a body shot when I reach 170 lbs, only because I took one a couple pounds ago so I don't look much different at all.

For reference, some pictures from the past that I've posted:

Here are some pictures of me from the day I weighed in, as well as one of me and my puppy:

So, there you go! Phew! :) Have a good weekend all!

    Wow I am sorry to hear about the seizure, sounded super scary for it to happen at work. At least you were surrounded by ppl you knew and got you help fast. I hope your injuries heal fast. Congrats on being 176!!! Your hair cut is so cute, exposing your neck and shoulder with the shorter hair makes you look much thinner from last pic. Almost done with school woot!!!!
