Doctor's appointment report

Yes, I know, that is so unoriginal! I'm honestly too tired to think of something better.
My doctor seemed very concerned that the swelling was still way up in my foot. By way up, I mean that I can't really feel veins and getting my foot into a shoe is difficult. He did three separate injections into my ankle. They're using some new stuff before they do the injections, it's this spray stuff that they can spray onto your foot. It feels really really cold, but it seems to make the injections hurt less when they do them. I'm usually good at tolerating injections, but it's nice not to have to worry about it. It was much more comfortable.
He also prescribed Neurontin. I'm not to excited about this, but I know we have to do something. I just hate how this feels like it is taking over my life!. I guess it's just hard to accept.
Today, my whole foot has been numb. That has been very very nice. Hopefully, I should be able to sleep well tonight.
Mom and I went to Brewberries for some coffee and a muffin. Then we went to pick up my prescriptions and some more tea, hot chocolate and an air freshener.
Came back here and worked on French stuff, then went to McDonalds for a very late lunch. Crashed for a while and did some laundry. We had a pizza party (thre of us, two friends and I did I mean). It's a good way to handle the practical issue of not being able to feel where I'm walking and also have fun at the same time.
It's hard to accept that I need more medication. It's even harder to accept that I need to learn more about my limitations. I don't want to be having a hard time with this. I feel like I should be doing better. It's been six weeks. I'm used to being different and havving limitations. Why does this bother me so much? My blood pressure showed the stress: 137 over 99.
Why am I struggling?
Hugs!

You've had all these things thrown at you all at once... College and a totally new environment, plus the foot thing... It's understandable why you're so stressed. I went through a similar situation when I went to school In Ohio a few years ago with the endometriosis. At the time, I thought I was living through pure hell, but now that I look back I can see and be appreciative of all the little blessings God gave me to get me through.
Sending many prayers your way...
