About, oh, 9 or 10 years ago, I was seeing a guy that I met at karaoke, just before the drugging of the drink.
He wasn’t the one who drugged me, mind you – he was just a regular, we got along okay, and we dated for a while.
We didn’t break up under the [...]
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 [...]
So that heat rash or whatever? From my hot flashes? Is getting worse.
I called and left a message with my surgeon’s office, and my mom has gone to get me…wait for it…diaper rash cream. Because my life’s not ridiculous enough, already.
If it was an infection, I would have, uh, more signs of actual [...]
I started having hot flashes a couple of days ago.
I mistook them for something else, at first.
I thought it was the thermostat not working properly.
Then I thought (because of the heart palpitations and the burning sensation of my skin as I lay there sweating) that my thyroid medication needed to be adjusted [...]
Guaranteed to amuse your significant other!
Turn a glass upside down on it while it’s sitting on your carpet like a derp, its antennae blowing in the wind from your box fan (not kidding…it almost looked happy). Fret for a minute about how you’re going to deal with it if it scurries out while you’re [...]
[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 [...]

In my prep instructions, I was told I’d have to mix 8.3 ounces of what we’ll call ‘pipe cleaner’ with one gallon of Gatorade, and drink 8 oz. every 15 minutes. I thought I was going to have to drink 64 ounces of fluid over 2 hours.
I picked up a large [...]
I went to my colonoscopy consult, today. I was afraid he was going to want to do another physical exam, but he said, “Nah, we’re going to be getting up-close-and-personal with you soon using a camera tube, so we’ll let you go without, today.” At least…he has a sense of…humor?
I will update you on [...]
Erin posted a (slightly panicked) email that I’d sent to her and a couple of other folks, and as she pointed out, I was waiting until I was calmer to post details about what’s happening.
Here’s the sequence with which things have been occurring, and what I’m going to do about the ones that are [...]
I went to my Lyme doc, today.
I basically begged him to switch my meds, for two reasons: the doxy makes me puke, and the metronidazole gives me an accent.
He pointed out that changing my abx would “throw the Lyme off,” which is honestly true, from what I understand, so I’m basically going to [...]
