It turns out that while I may be experiencing symptoms of PMS and an actual period, the bleeding was not, in fact, from endometrium or anything like that.
The short story is that I may have a suture granuloma (rare-ish for the location, because of COURSE it is). The doctor called it a granuloma, then [...]
This month, I’ve experienced the following symptoms (moreso the past week):
bloating migraine w/vertigo and nystagmus unexplained weight gain in short period of time mood change lower abdominal cramping
I attributed them all to different things (mostly gas, exhaustion, and allergies). Then I silently freaked out about why the hell I’m gaining 10 pounds in [...]
I’ve been to the ER 3 times in the space of 13 months.
January 2013, it was food poisoning.
July 2013, I was having trouble breathing, which we finally attributed to my medication interacting.
Yesterday was just full of surprises all around.
I woke up at around 7am on Wednesday with my stomach feeling oddly [...]
I’ve become part of a streaming community through Indie Game Mag, which is pretty neat. My profile page is here (and the blog is linked there, because a lot of the questions people ask me can be answered here, and this is a public site, so I honestly don’t care): gameplay.indiegamemag.com/squeakyb/
I’ve been slowly developing [...]
It appears that most of the infections from ticks start with the letter “b” – borrelia is Lyme, babesia is a type of protozoa, and bartonella is more commonly known as “cat scratch fever.”
Then erlichia comes in and screws up the whole alliteration, but that’s beside the point.
I had a follow-up with my [...]
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 [...]
