I really ached yesterday, especially around the stitches on my right side. I suspect I maybe overdid it a bit this weekend. Either that or just all the activity of trying to life my life "normally" is just.. alot of activity.

Or.. who knows what else? They aren't sharp pains, pains that feel like something BAD is happening, just dull pains.

I dunno.

I'm looking forward to getting back to full healh again. I want to ramp up the activity a bit and try to get back into the gym. I want to try to get back into shape before Freestyles. Losing some weight might be nice too, but definitely the in shape part...

Not a whole lot else to say, unless you want to hear about my Sims 3 whine. Eh. Why not?

There's.. conflicting knowledge on whether or not The Sims 3 will come out on time. The official site removed the "Comes out February 20" note on the site, as did the EA store, but.. there's no other date and calls to the company itself.. have gotten conflicting answers. Some calls, the answer is "No, February 20th." Others say "We're reconsidering when it will come out."
I'll be annoyed if it's delayed, but... on the other hand, if they're fixing bugs, I'd deal. Mostly, I just wish I KNEW. Is it on time or is it not?

That's.. all I've got going on for today.

Sorry if I disappeared off the radar. The last four days have been a bit of a blur of trying to get better and relative inactivity. Just trying to recover.

The checkup with the surgeon is.. in a little less than an hour. I expect he'll clear me for work, at the least (which I have very mixed feelings about. I've been bored at home, definitely, but the idea of going back to work and trying to deal with all the stress and work is, honestly, a bit scary. But.. I also recognize that putting that off won't really help either.)

I am hoping he'll clear me for more, such as dance lessons, if I think I can handle them.

Not much else to say. We watched the Inauguration on TV yesterday, but not the parade. Instead, we watched the talking heads for a bit and then turned it off to play Boom Blox on the Wii (Me, K and a couple of friendly people) and then Guitar Hero World Tour. Before we knew it, it was 9:00, I was pooped and it was time to go home.

So...

If the doctor clears me, I'll go right to work, and might peak in, if I can. If not, well.. then not.

EDIT: I'm cleared. For work. For dance. For everything. I need to use my common sense and if I hurt, don't DO that. And I need to slowly ramp up towards eating fatty food or FACE THE CONSEQUENCES, but I'm relatively whole and very on the mend.

Gall Stones

The rests results are in and my Gall Bladder looks infected and she thought she saw stones.

The doctor says I'll need it out. So... there you go, I guess.

Joy.

Another Doctor's Visit, another possible suggestion of what's going on.

This time, during the visit, I was having an attack. My front lower side was KILLING me, nasty crampy pains.

In any case, the doctor's feeling pretty sure that it's my Gall Bladder, that my Gall Bladder isn't operating the way it's supposed to. What this means is... if they're right (and I have to take two tests, a sonogram to make sure the structure of the gall bladder is alright and there's no stones) and then another test later (after the first one shows no signs of damage inside) to see if it's functioning right.

If it isn't, if the doctor is right.. then I need surgery. I'll need my Gall Bladder removed. Because these attacks will probably keep coming.

So.. that's the poop.

Luckily, I have plenty of Sick Time. Nearly 200 hours worth. :p And I got the Doctors' Note, no problem. I'll just need to fax it.

Meh

Yesterday turned out rotten.

Somewhere around noon, the back really started to hurt. I took aspirin, but it wasn't a muscle kinda pain (aspirin helps relax me when this shit happens, but if it's not a muscle pain, it can only do so much. The fact that aspirin does jack makes me wonder if the back isn't only a sympton, not the problem.)

By two, I felt bad. My stomach was beginning to ache, my back really hurt and I couldn't concentrate on work. So I went home.

After talking with K, we agreed I'm going to try to spend some time at home (I have a sick bank, so it's no problem.) hoping that sleeping and sitting on the couch with back support will help.

So... I'm not going to hang out in front of the computer for too long. I don't know what the problem is, just that my back hurts. So... I'm probably not around Chat much for a while.

Um... yeah, this entry probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense. :/ Oh well.

Actual New Years Eve was pretty decent. Last year, K and I spent the night playing Civ IV. This year (OK, last year), we spent it playing Animal Crossing and Mario Galaxy for the Wii. Twas good.

On the night of the 1st, however, my back pain came back. I've had a couple of flare-ups. I tried calling the doctor I worked with a couple weeks back, but all I got was his receptionist, however she apparently talked to him late Friday, cause I was told to make another appointment to try to see him soon.

Last night, I had another flare-up. A bad one. Kinda like how I felt back when the doctor thought it was a kidney stone (the one he can't find, so it's probably not that.)

Going to try to make a doctor's appointment soon as the place opens today.

On top of that, with at least a happy ending, was the Ballad of K's tire. Last week, K drove to the metro station (sounds like it was Wednesday, the 31st, but I'm not sure.) She parks her car and goes to work, comes back, pulls out.. and hears the pop and tinkle of her car going over a glass bottle that WASN'T there when she pulled in. She was afeared of the damage, but it didn't seem bad yet. Saturday, we drove to the Metro again, headed to Georgetown and I can only assume the act of driving did the tire in because when we came back, we had a flat.

LUCKILY, K had a donut. So we put the donut on and drove home. K called around and found a Firestone about 20 minutes away, so we planned to drive there yesterday, but she got into the car and the donut, which we hadn't used in five years had deflated. Lovely. So.. she called AAA to tow her (but they just reinfalted the tire instead), GOT the car to firestone, replaced the tire and drove home. End of Story.

Not much else to say. I'll let you know about the whole doctor appointment when it's over (since I know some of you care and stuff.)

Son of Edit: Well.. I have a Doctor's Appointment. For next Monday at 8:15. I asked to leave a message with the doctor to see if someone else could maybe see the case, but.. I dunno. :/ Wednesday at 3:30. That'll do.

Meh

Still not feeling great, but ended up trying, at least, to come to work anyways. My stomach.. it feels like someone's gripped it and is squeezing. It HURTS, sometimes, and I have no idea why, only the fact that if it isn't better soon, I need to go see a doctor.

I may be around, I may not be, depending on how busy I am and how sick I feel.

Food Poisoning.

Do you know what I think I have, after a rather... descriptive night (it feels like someone has my stomach in the grip of their hand and is SQUEEZING. Especially around the bottom of the stomach.)

I am never eating at Firehouse Subs again. Ever. :p
ESPECIALLY the one at Kingstowne...

Oh. Yeah.

I went a little bit off the wagon over the last two weeks. Not terribly, but a little bit.. until last weekend.

To be fair, I didn't have a multitude of choices. I was either driving and at the mercy of whatever looked half good as we got hungry, or in a hotel. Oh, and at a wedding where I had no choice.

Some of my choices were bad. Very bad.

I won't get into the details, but.. my body reminded me just how much it prefers HEALTHY food part of the way home Sunday and throughout yesterday.

Message Recieved. Thanks for the reminder, body. :p I'm back on track.

The wedding was OK. It was a Christian Ceremony, but not a full mass. I think I had to try not to roll my eyes when the priest spoke of Jesus bringing the couple together and, etc. And the homily was terrible (not the material so much as the priest's speaking style. He was worse than William Shatner.)

And now.. Jesus.. has brought you.. to this place.

It went on and on and on and I have no real memory of what he said.
