Ha. I've been on hiatus from CM but I've returned for who knows how long. I'm sure most of you now don't know who I am.

I just wanted to say "hello" and I hope everyone is having a good New Years Eve.


For those who remember me here is a quick update of all that has happened since I last posted in July!


1. I graduated the EMS Academy with a 4.0; which I was the only person in the program history to graduate with a 4.0. Yay me!

2. I graduated with Honors for my Paramedicine degree. Yay again.

3. I recieved my legal license to practice as a Paramedic.

4. I have a boyfriend who is super adorable and super sweet.

5. I start my first job as a Paramedic on Monday.

6. My son continues to be the best kiddo ever. :))

7. I have been admitted one other time for an abscess on my face.

8. Found out the reason why I keep getting the abscesses. Apparently, I have a genetic condition that popped up later in life. It's called "Chronic Granulomatous Disease". I have a low count of a specific white blood cell called, neutrophils.

Sometimes the disease will go away by itself and remain dormant again and sometimes it gets worse.

I'm currently on long-term antibiotics and giving myself injections 3 times a week with something called Interferon Gamma. It makes so super sick but I haven't had an abscess on my face since October and just had my first random abscess show up on my back last week but it was very mild. Things have improved a little at this time.

The other options for me if the shots don't work is either a bone marrow transplant or stem cell transplant. Neither of which I want.


So, other than that.....................that's all that's been going on with me.

How has everyone else been? I see CM hasn't changed at all since I left. I'm not sure why I ever thought it would.

i was going to say, Lady where the He** have you been. i missed you!!! glad you found out what was causing Bob to randomly pop up out of no where, at least that's one mystery solved. congrats on the high GPA and getting your paramedic license, woot!!!

still dealing with no job, tho i am finally getting seen by my local mental health, so i should be back to normal soon. kids are doing well, can't wait for oldest to go back to school (two more weeks, ugh).
