Weird thing at work today
Two of my diganoses are pretty much unknown to most doctors. Only about 50% of doctors have heard of gastroparesis, and only 50% of those (25% of total) know significant information about it. Very few have heard of eosinophilic esophagitis, and ... Read more
Blood work mysteries and a job non-opportunity
I asked my endocrinologist to send me the full test results for all the blood work he's done. I was looking through them and found something interesting he didn't see (or didn't mention if he did notice it). I looked up some things, did some ded... Read more
Something to remember...
Every time you think you've failed, remind yourself that you've just succeeded in ruling out something that didn't work to get you to your goal. Try another way, then another, then another, until you've gotten what you want. If you're not willin... Read more
Pedometer meet toilet - but I fixed it!
One thing I hate about pedometers are the flimsy little clips used to hold them onto your pants. After just a couple months it is stretched out and doesn't hold it well at all. Thus, when I go to the bathroom it often falls off and hits the floo... Read more
I could use some advice, and lunch with my biking family
There are changes going on at work. One of my coworkers was going to be given a new job, but after someone else was fired, she will be going to that job instead and the job she was going to be put in is out for others to try for. Well, apparentl... Read more
Lunch with the fam tomorrow
The other day I posted a link to the website about (part of) my family biking from WI to WA. Well, due to some delays and bad weather they weren't able to be in my area tonight. They also won't be biking a little ways out of the way to stay at m... Read more
Bad night - went too long without eating.
Last night was one of those awful nights that make the next morning and day feel like you're swimming in pudding - messy and you never get anywhere.
After work yesterday I ran some errands. Unfortunately, it took much longer than I expected... Read more
New dentist numbed my eye! Yay! :-)
I just want to say I went to a new dentist for the first time today and seriously, she actually took me serious about how quickly I go through novocain. She numbed me pretty well but it was still shooting cold when she started drilling, but a fe... Read more

Sitting on an exercise ball in front of the computer
So I don't get the point of sitting on an exercise ball while sitting at a computer. While it helps to keep my left leg from going numb (which happens when I'm sitting on chairs at work and at home all day), it kills my back and my neck. It is b... Read more
Stress at work and Coldstone moderation
I got a bit of a shock today at work. The day was going okay, though very busy. Then the boss's boss comes over and tells us that a certain person, that some of us got along pretty well with and some of us actually shared work with, no longer wo... Read more
Something to think about
When you look at someone and judge them, your prejudices are showing. Also, what you choose to judge in others tends to fall in line with how you judge yourself. So when you make a judgement about someone with a comment, a joke, or even a though... Read more
Heat wave in Minnesota
Today we hit 97* in the Twin Cities (MN), a new record. My car was HORRIBLY hot so I just wanted to race home, get out of my work clothes, and into a tank top and shorts. I got home, said "wonderful air conditioning!", went downstairs, and befor... Read more
I will never enjoy my birthday.
I do not like my birthday. I never have. I doubt I ever will. But I'll share how my day was today.
I slept in late, skipping breakfast. Then I went to Denny's for a free grand slam for lunch. Next came laundry (which lasted all evening) and... Read more
I need to put it on the line for a look-alike.
If you don't know who Drew Seeley is, go search him. He is really talented and quite good looking. His girlfriend Amy Paffrath is one of my favorite people.
I turn 30 on Sunday. I haven't had a boyfriend in 11 years (since July 00) and have... Read more
