I’ve been keeping Jennifer and Erin updated on my situation, because they specifically requested it, and because, frankly, it’s easier to write a personal message to someone right now than to write a blog post.
But write a blog post I must, because the shit? Has hit the fan and covered absolutely everything.
I messaged [...]
The only character who remotely resembles themselves is the Nurse Practitioner, who is, BTW, the one I had to report a year ago for abuse.
This represents the past two years of opinions, except for the LLMD – that was his reaction on Wednesday when my second test came back negative, without ANY Lyme treatment [...]
So my right upper thigh/hip have been numb since I had my surgery.
The feeling is coming back , very slowly and painfully. Currently, the area around the edges feels like a burn, with bruising, and the middle of it feels like there’s a layer of rubber on top of my skin…I can’t feel anything [...]
If you missed my massive Twitter-splosion update session Friday afternoon, that’s okay. I was really pissy (though vindicated), and didn’t put a whole lot of details, because, well…it’s Twitter.
Anyway, so my surgery was Friday morning, and I’m exhausted AND high on painkillers (they gave me Percocet – 5mg of oxy does what 10mg of [...]
I have my “Molon Labe” tattoo on my right forearm, as many of you know.
(It’s been there for 5 years, and I haven’t regretted it a single day, even though the placement has caused some concern for employment. Screw it – I can still put a band-aid over it or something.)
Whenever I give [...]
Because my last update included some medical info, but was overshadowed by my bad mood (which is better – it was mostly due to dealing with morons directly after finding out that I have to take yet more [expensive] medication), I’ll go ahead and write another entry with those details.
I got to bed late [...]
It’s been one of THOSE days.
The days where you’re awakened by a phone call with bad news (even if it’s an answer you’ve been waiting for…it’s never fun to be told that your thyroid and hypothalamus have both just stopped giving a shit with regard to your T3 levels, and that your adrenal glands [...]
I don’t even know where to begin on the past several days. I should note that my mother broke a vertebra in her lumbar spine, so the bad luck hasn’t just been hanging around my door. (She’s okay, BTW – just needs to rest so it can mend, but she’s getting a bone scan Monday, [...]
You guys, I’m $110 away from my base goal that would allow me enough “extra” money to get my uber-Lyme test (which is $800, all-told). That’s taking into account the PayPal “tax,” too.
Frankly, I’m shocked that I’m that close, but considering I have a certain self-proclaimed “annoying little sister” spreading the word, and have [...]
I went to the doctor on Wednesday because my throat was so sore that I felt like I was swallowing glass. I chronicled the whole thing in a video (HERE), but this is basically how it went down:
Called my doctor Tuesday to complain about sore throat, thinking I may have strep. Doctor says, “We’ll [...]
