My First Surgery!
Whee, scheduled for my very first surgery ever at the end of the month to diagnose/treat my endometriosis. I'm terrified/morbidly curious as to how it will go. I'll try to concentrate on the morbid curiosity part, heh.

Got a call back from the doctor (fiiiiinallllyyyyyy) and I am free of ovarian cysts and fibroids that they can tell, but because of something they saw (way to be vague guys.) they are definitely suspecting endometriosis, and want me to go see a ... Read more
hurry up test results! Argh!
The ultrasound place told me they'd get my scans to my doctor Thursday morning, so I'd probably hear from them friday. I'm so tired of waiting. I just want to know if I have ovarian cysts or fibroids or SOMETHING that could be causing all of thi... Read more
So close to leveling up!
Yay, I'm only 389 sparkpoints away from getting to level 7! I wish you could level up faster in Spark People, because it seems like it takes forever to get to the next level. I do enjoy that there's a leveling up system. It's so gamey! If only I... Read more

mopey bat is mopey.
It's kinda hard to concentrate on eating well when you're extremely tired and in pain about 80% of the time. Ugh.
Measure my blood sugar for a week. It's on the slightly higher end of normal, but that's expected. I successfully cut back my ... Read more

All aboard the failboat!
I keep trying to peptalk myself into staying with weight loss efforts despite the fact that it's winter, but I'm failing miserably.
It doesn't help that I'm really tired all the time, which sucks. It's weird - if I go out with people after... Read more
