Today’s points of discovery

17 04 2009

I hate days like today when you come to realize you’re more grown up than you thought and you have no clue how you got there. For example:

  • Finding your own doctors. Never in my life had I had to find my own doctors. Back home, I went to the same PCP and GYN for years, and I found a GI specialist only because he worked in the same hospital and had a rep for being the best. I basically had to rely on the advice of friends and acquaintances to find new doctors here in Chicago. I have appointments set up, now just to meet with them and hopefully like them. If not, it’s back to square one.
  • I’ve come to the realization that once you love someone they’re basically stuck in your heart. Forever. No matter what. It sucks, but I guess that’s reality. Which brings me to:
  • I’m getting married…MARRIED! I don’t know about you, but I still feel like a kid inside. It seems like just yesterday I was in high school, and as a friend pointed out  its been FIVE years.
  • With age comes pain. No really, like bone aches and crap. I listen to my patients day in and day out complain: “I don’t know what I did, but one day my (insert joint/body part) just started hurting” and now I realize OH WOW that’s me. I think at least 3 out of 5 days this week I spent complaining about my shoulder and how much it hurts. I don’t remember doing anything to it either!! This is like the worst version of Karma ever.
  • Icy Hot has become my new perfume this week. It also makes your ears tingle if you happen to accidentally apply it where it’s not needed.
  • My birthday is in about a month. While I’ve been on the verge of a quarter life crisis since I entered my 20’s, the fact that my 24th is just around the corner is giving me a little nudge over the edge.

On the other hand, I’m seriously considering folding to my impulses and booking a trip to Vegas to hang with Jamie, Allie, Jess, and some other fabulous bloggers for the weekend. Some parts of me are thinking “Maggie, you should really be saving your money for your wedding” but the other part of me that’s winning is saying “When will you ever get a chance to do this again!?” Jury’s still out. Verdict to be announced hopefully by the end of the weekend.

You totally should go to Vegas. I’ll send you details if I get a second today while I’m at work. If not, definitely when I get home!

I vote Vegas!!! 🙂 And just wait until you get over the 25-year mark, ha! I’ll be 26 in a few weeks and it kind of blows my mind that I’m now closer to 30. Never been happier though – the mid-20s are awesome, rock it girlfriend 🙂

24 is the age I started noticing age related things. BAM! After 24, it’s like all the lessons in being your own person (which thankfully I have) come into play. Like diagnosing your own stuff. Docs couldn’t fathom how I did that lol.

I’m going to be 24 this year too. It seems like such an old age, but I don’t say this out loud (people don’t tend to take that well).
