Beach today was a success!! Laura and I talked about the scars and my cutting. I told her about Nancy and everything. I told her that Megg and Erica both know. How Erica took my x-acto knife and scale and then I bought more. I even told her how Megg found out...about her walking into my room and seeing my wrist that night I feel asleep. It was nice. She is always really easy to talk to about things like that. No judgement, no anger, just support and understanding. It's almost like having a buddy who does it, but better. Because I know she isn't hurting herself.
Unfortunately, I'm burnt as heck. My whole body. Mostly my face though. And even that is only one side since I spent the whole time talking with Laura and my face was turned. I have no plans to be in the sun till Sunday at Universal Studios though. It's not an awful burn on my body. No extreme pain which is good. I just hope I'm tan once the burn goes away, haha.
And I bought laxatives today for the first time! I've been having a tough time...well...I could write out the TMI version but I'm just not going to. These laxatives will just help with that plus it'll cleanse my system. I bought the CVS brand called "Gentle Laxative Bisacodyl USP" so we'll see how that works. I'm about to take two tablets (the recommended dosage is between 1 and 3) and then go to sleep. It says to "expect results in 8-12 hours if taken at bedtime" so that's sometime between 9:00am tomorrow morning and 1:00pm tomorrow afternoon. We'll see when it hits...
Anyway, just wanted to update you all and let you know life is good! I've only got a little bit left being home for spring break. I have all day tomorrow and then I drive back up to school Saturday morning so I've got lots of cleaning and shopping left to do before I go back. I plan to update again on Monday just because I know I'll be busy till then. But who knows, maybe I'll pop back on for a brief update before that.
