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 […]
There is a particular feeling that I get before a period. It’s like cramps, but not really. It feels like a slight tightening in my lower abdomen, coupled with what feels like more looseness in the vaginal area. The way I always thought of it was like the lid being taken off the toothpaste before […]
Way back when I was a kid in the 80s, one of the coolest things a kid could have in the summer was a Slip’n’Slide. Now, the ones back then were pretty rudimentary. You attach the hose to the end, turn it on, and little jets of water would (hopefully) cover the surface with enough […]
Earlier this evening my muscles turned all jelly-like after I drove to get a prescription. I suspected blood sugar (this has happened several times), so I ate a peanut butter sandwich and some Halloween candy.
It didn’t get better after an hour, but Forrest had to go to work, so he suggested that I take […]
I went in for my Lyme appointment on Wednesday, just as a follow-up, and didn’t plan on talking about some of the bad physical things going on with me, lately, with my LLMD, because I didn’t think much of it – I figured it was summer, me being tired, and me being on Trazodone, again […]
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 […]
Not gonna lie, I’ve kind of come to hate WordPress the past month or so, with all the writing I do for IGM on it. It’s not like I hate my job. It’s just that staring at a white screen all the time gets to me.
Anyway, a lot has happened since I last updated. […]
I don’t remember that side effect from last time, but I was also not sleeping very well, anyway (school, wedding planning, etc.), so there’s no telling.
But one of the things I looked up was whether Lamictal causes nightmares, and lo and behold, there were so many links from forums of people complaining about it […]
Before I begin this epic adventure in writing, I want to point out a few things:
Without follow-up from any of the involved parties, this falls under the umbrella of “speculation.” Because there are details that were added to try to “legitimize” the claim, some of the folks named in this may not actually be […]
My dad picked me up, and we went to get sushi (well, I got sushi…he got some combination plate with teriaki chicken, seafood, veggies, and rice). I actually got him to try a piece of my tempura shrimp roll. He pronounced it “okay.”
After that, we had freakin’ 3.5 hours to kill before the movie, […]
