Maybe you should try plan "D" for Dumbass

Hellos, I'm Dave. Lady Texan who loves everything.

Here you will find Video Games, Supernatural, Pokemon, Disney, Animals, Actors I'm in love with, Super Heroes, and then just whatever else strikes my fancy.

I play Guild Wars 2! Hit me up if you wanna play. If you have game suggestions for me, go on and throw them my way. I'm always interested in new stuff!

I have massive love for: Final Fantasy 7, Bowser, Mass Effect, Corpse Party, Nolan Gerard Funk, and Grant Gustin

...Run, Rabbit, Run...

In better news, I somehow managed to get an appointment as a new patient with a Gastro, on Thursday

I’m so used to “Okay he can see you in March 6 years from now” that I was just, wait what really? Though she told me it was a cancellation so I just happened to call at the right time and snagged the spot. WORKS FOR ME

This will be my third Gastro I’ve seen. Hopefully he can figure SOMETHING out cause my last two were so “This is confusing me so you better leave” The blood has to be coming from somewhere

It may be dumb to some people, but games that let me explore and adventure, and make choices, and make friends even though they’re game characters, is really important to me. Considering more than half the time I’m bound to my bed because I’m sick, and in pain, I can’t do things I wanna do. So being able to have cool, creative adventures in a game? Learning new things and making up stories? It gives me an escape

And it’s not dumb to me

Okay I’m home

My CT was clear, no masses, no blockage. He suspects since I’ve had polyps in the past I had a big one and it popped and has been bleeding out. But, even if that’s not it, there’s nothing that they see that requires emergency surgery or anything

I got morphine AGAIN (which, my leg still hurts on. it helps, I can walk better and the pain is lower, but my leg still manages to push though) then he gave me prescription for a few things (mainly anti nausea and for intestinal pain) and here I am

I’m gonna set up with a GI again and probably end up having my 4th colonoscopy if this bleeding keeps up

I can’t believe my parents think I ever WANT to be in the ER. I really just wanna go home. And go to sleep.

I just had a rectal exam and the ER doctor was like “Oh. That’s blood!” Have you been paying attention at all?

I just got bloodwork, and I’m having a CAT scan in about an hour.

Fun times

tags → #forever sick 

Literally what they said to me

"I’m going to call the hospital and let them know you’re on your way"

So. I’m off to the hospital (hopefully… we’ll see how my parents react). I’ll keep ya’ll updated

tags → #forever sick 

Waiting for my doctors office to call me back, cause I did ignore it the first time aaaaand well

Sorry if TMI

I’ve had bloody bowel movements for a long time. Like over a year, long. They’ve never been able to figure out where the bleeding is coming from, despite my THREE colonoscopies. And, doctors kinda react to that as, eh we don’t see anything, ignore it

Well

Last week. I’ve never seen that much blood before. Like. Ever. It looked like there was no water in the toilet, just dark red blood. And clotted blood (which, makes me think ulcers??) But no pain. I was light headed and tired, but nothing hurt. As the week has gone, I’ve had A LOT of intestinal pain, but it comes and goes.One day it was so bad, I got really scared.

Today, more blood. And not just, urg more bleeding, but another bout of, where the hell did all of that even come from!? blood. This time, it hurt a LOT before (on the lower left side of my belly) and now I’m nauseated and feel like there’s a bunch of pressure (which is shooting down my legs, causing more pain) and the lower half of my body is buzzing

So.

Waiting for my doctor’s nurse to call me back so I can leave a message then wait again to be called back

Why Friday afternoon

I unfortunately don’t have a GI at the moment. I’ll go see my old one if need be, but he was only in town one day a week, as much as I liked him.

What’s really dumb though is my parents. “They’re JUST going to tell you to go to the ER”

Well then ya think maybe I should. I dunno. Go? Nah let’s ignore it. There’s a 50/50 chance you’ll be fine

Dad asked “what’s up with you today” cause apparently I’m much less delightful than usual

So I told him

And after giving me gatorade (his first response to everything dealing with me being sick lol) he went to look at the letter from my doctor again like >| at it and goes, “Could it be your…

Have they checked for ovaric infections or cysts? In the bloodworks that can look like that type infection, mostly because it often is caused by such an unnoticed infection, even in samples, but the pain is different. Irregular periods, and periodic sharp pains located what feels like behind and slightly above the spot you would usually experience period cramps can be symptoms of that. Maybe a ultrasound can help take a look if you have any swelling on your ovaries.

PCOS is what my primary thinks I have. I’ve got an appointment lined up with my OBGYN to I see about having an ultrasound. I had a pelvic exam at my primary visit and she automatically was like, “have you had this looked at?” My periods are really all over the place (I can not have one for months, or I can have two in one month, its just. no clockwork to it). and I’ve been getting random cysts under my skin all over my body,  so being prone to cysts (which is wording my doctor used, how is being “prone to cysts” normal lol) it definitely could be a thing

And after giving me gatorade (his first response to everything dealing with me being sick lol) he went to look at the letter from my doctor again like >| at it and goes, “Could it be your urinary tract infection?” “I don’t think so, not the pain anyway, it doesn’t feel like my bladder” then he goes

"I like how she just throws it in there like, by the way you also have a urinary tract infection. Can’t that be pretty bad? People go to the doctor FOR that. Then there’s you, doctor is like, oh by the way!"

But, like I told him, I have no symptoms of a UTI (except MAYBE nausea could be accounted for that)  but they say it’s there so ok

I also have a mosquito bite on my ankle

rrrrrrrg

edit - it’s also way way past due for me to have another period so I wonder if that’s trying to happen too

Just to be sitting on my bed and then all of a sudden be in so much pain that I actually fall over and tears fill my eyes and think “Do I need to yell for help or is this one of my normal things?”

and now I have a increasingly bad headache

I wish I knew wtf is even happening but at this point eeeeeeehdjfrkfdl

Guys, Wally is so important. He has what appears to be asthma; breathing difficulties that clear up in the fresh air of Verdanturf. He accomplishes many things, he grows as a character, and he is great representation for those with asthma. He’s a great character first and foremost and I can identify with his struggles and making sacrifices, like moving or getting rid of pets, in order to breathe and not be miserable.
I looked up to him as a kid because having asthma isn’t easy. Especially considering things like Jimmy Neutron being on TV at the time (Carl Wheezer is bad.) I mean here is a character that has asthma and IT ISN’T A PUNCHLINE! I am so sick of nerdy/geeky characters getting asthma attacks and pulling out that ol’ inhaler as a “look how loser and outcast this character is! Lululul!”
The night I discovered I had it, I was hunched over in a chair, unable to breathe enough to cry because I hurt so much. In the Pokemon world where walking and being physical is a necessity for a trainer, not to mention sudden happenstances and scares, I can imagine it being very difficult for asthmatics.
So Wally is important. Thank you, Pokemon, for an awesome character that a new generation of asthmatic kids can look up to and see a role model. You made an awesome character that is so much more than his illness!

I have a really exciting Spoonie Living announcement for y’all! When I started on my 6-month medical leave from work, one of my goals was to create a zine for new spoonies, to help them hit the ground running as they begin their chronic illness experience. I’m calling it Chronically Badass, and it’s finally done!
Here’s what I cover inside:
Spoon theory
Getting answers
Working with doctors
Work & school
Friends & family
Reactions
Mental health
Coping strategies
Online communities
Mobility
It’s free for download right here (although you’re welcome to donate if you like), so be sure to check it out!
Please also reblog and spread the word so others can find and benefit from this zine.

Is there any way to get this without a credit card? I’d love to read it, but not sure how to get it without having a card.

Gosh, absolutely! If you set the amount to $0, the credit card thing will disappear—give it a shot :)
