I contacted the clinical research center that is right next to my Rheumatologist about maybe enrolling in their trial over winter or summer break. They are apparently tied in with my doctors office and already had my records (Kind of weird but whatever). I spoke with them over the phone and basically they can’t let me be in trial due to time constraints and distance. This sucks. Every time you get turned down for a clinical trial it kind of feels like you’re being broken up with (being told you’re no [fill in the blank] enough). That may sound weird to ya’ll but that’s how I feel about it. At least this time I didn’t let myself get my hopes up to high so it wasn’t as bad when I was rejected. I only curled up in a stubborn ball of anger and frustration fo 2 days (as opposed to a week or so). I am going to continue looking for trials and the center in Dallas said they would call me if they thought there was a trial I might qualify for, so there’s that.
Any who I learned that dayquil and nyquil are gods gifts to sick students. I managed to get a passing grade on an AmGov test despite having Strep, Laryngitis, and a cold (yes all at once). I am feeling much better now though 🙂
P.S. Enjoy the squirrel.
