I went to the new endocrinologist yesterday, got a bunch of blood drawn, and got the results, today.
For the record, I’ve gained nearly 15 pounds since October. I’d just quit Cytomel, a thyroid medication for hypothyroidism, and had my Lamictal increased (it can cause water retention – this is a thing I was aware […]
Okay, so. The IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America) is notorious in the Lyme community for their stodgy view on Lyme, and, most notably, chronic Lyme.
Their argument for decades has been, “if there are no antibodies, a bacterial disease is no longer active; therefore, it no longer exists in the body.” That’s more of […]
I’m not providing photos of this situation (other than jewelry and a diagram to describe what the fuck I’m talking about for those who have no idea about piercings) merely because it’s really gross, and I figure with the armpit photos a few years ago, and the surgery photos from 2013, you guys are pretty […]
I think I’m allowed to get a bit angry at the state of things, right now.
I felt like shit in May, but was pronounced cured via a broken test that my doctor KNEW was broken, but because of lobbying (hooray, money makes the world go round), he has to follow that broken test. THANKS, […]
…but I’m never sure how angry I can get at my situation before people start acting like I shouldn’t be angry.
And I’m really angry about my situation, for a number of reasons, some of which I haven’t shared, because they’re not exactly tied into anything that’s relevant to anyone else.
But again – how […]
My ability to protect myself with lethal force if necessary is so important to me that, despite needing some significant help right now, I’m loathe to seek it because I don’t want to be declared unfit by the state of TN.
I’m not suicidal, if I’m not homicidal, and it doesn’t matter. If I have […]
I mean, aside from the inclement weather, which is somehow only going to make temperatures stupidly low tomorrow. They’re just going to go back up on Tuesday, soooo…yeah. Some winter storm, as far as we’re concerned.
I started my regimen of Bactrim (BID) and Levaquin (once per day), and so far I feel nothing out […]
I’m not going to talk about promises made, or private insurance for entrepreneurs and small business owners, or anything like that.
I’m going to talk about our particular plan, from Forrest’s place of business, and how we’re utterly screwed next year because of it. He works at a decent company that’s been fairly awesome about […]
[Before you read this: There are so many more people that have been awesome to me this year, and in years past, than there ever have been assholes. That may be why the assholes stand out so much. Being that they stand out, they annoy me greatly. If I’ve ever fussed at you, but I’m […]
[I’m terribly sorry for the O GOD MY LIFE, but I promised myself I would record everything I could about my disease, and this is a legitimate part of it that I’m sure others can relate to…and since I’ve been told that my blog actually helped a couple of people (one person used it for […]
