Colonoscopy Preparation

Hi Guys! I'm finally catching up on video editing! Huzzah! So here's the second part of my colonoscopy preparation. Its not a how-to video or anything... really, its just showing me drinking that horrible mixture for the procedure. I'm not a chemist or anything, but I read the ingredients for it and it looks like it was made out of baking soda and salt.... yikes... I hope my kidneys will be ok!

I heard that there are pills now, but you still have to drink about 20 cups of liquid. I'm not sure if one is better than the other.

Just for my reference... the MoviPrep kit costed me $50 with my insurance (its $65 without). Bleah... medication has gotten so expensive! Its tough not having a job. I am living off of my savings right now. I've had this mentality of counting all of my dollars and that really isn't a good way to live. However, I've been feeling healthier. Staying at home has its advantages. I am eating well and exercising. I'm not quite ready to jump into a job yet even if I'm feeling good now. I've actually had a job offered to me a few weeks ago, but I turned it down because I knew it was going to be stressful. Working too soon might make me spiral into a flare again and I'm not going to let it happen. I'll go when I am ready.

I'm here.. sort of...

Hey dudes! Many apologies... I thought I was going to have lots of time for the internet since I'm not working, but I've been so busy! I can't even believe it myself. I'm so behind with my video editing... I left all of you guys at a cliffhanger! haha! Well... the colonoscopy was a success other than finding a mild flare. Which I'm recovered from by the way.

So the question that everyone keeps asking... Where have I been?! The truth is, I spent some time to chilax in Florida!

So now I'm back and hopefully I'll have time to get into my video editing... I had it all scheduled out too! But between packing and finishing up some stuff, I really didn't have any time. I'll see if I can get something out soon. I'm involved with a few art projects at the moment so we'll see how everything goes.
