I’m scared.

Of my upcoming colonoscopy. Not of the procedure, although I know prep isn't going to be pleasant, but of the possibility that I might have cancer.  A second cancer that is.  I've noticed a change in my bowel habits and tried to chock that up to my adjusting to a new hormone normal but there…

22 years…

... Ago today I married the love of my life. I'm going to keep his name private, not that you couldn't probably figure it out, but Happy Anniversary to the man I married! When a person gets sick it isn't just their life that is affected.  Their spouse, partner, children and extended family are also…

I’m collecting doctors

like a fat kid collects candy on Halloween... Oy!  I thought I would post an update, not that I actually think anyone is reading this anymore, but mainly so I have a chronicle of appointments, visits, tests, etc for personal reference.  If you are still around and not sick of me complaining/venting over what is…

Sjogren’s Test Update

So,  I ended up needing to call for an update on my blood work.  All of it came back normal, don't know the specific numbers but I had already talked about this possibility with my doctor.  He told me it was a possibility and I already knew that the disease is difficult to diagnose.  So…

Waiting…

...I hate waiting. Today is my birthday and I feel so tired.  Yesterday just drained all the energy out of me and now I'm sitting on the couch trying to read and I feel like I'm going to fall asleep.  I had hoped that I would know some of the test results for Sjogren's syndrome…

Update: New Developments.

This week was fair week for the county where I live and I volunteer for a Creative Arts group with the fair where we exhibit mostly adult but some youth craft and fine art projects.  Normally I love fair week but this year the idea of working at the fair just sounded exhausting, and it…

Ops. I forgot to update.

Sorry, I forgot to share about how my appointment went on my blog.  With the husband having the week off for the Fourth I didn't spend much time inside or on the computer.  We used the week to work on several projects around our property.  Some we even managed to finish! Anyway, everything went fine and…

Five months without a uterus

And things are going pretty good all things considered. I do have my first three-month appointment on July 3rd and need to start making a list of issues I want to talk to them about. Menopause:  My hot flashes are getting better most of the month but seem to be condensing their strength and frequency to…

Here’s to all the Non-Moms this Mother’s Day.

Here's to all the childfree women in the world: You love your life.  You know yourself well enough to know that you don't want or need children to live a full and rich life.  You contribute much to this world and your family.  Be it just the two of you or all on your own.…

What a difference a year makes

Last night I was scrolling back through my calendar.  It is on google now and I use it to record everything; health, family, work, blog, pets, bills.  Anything I think is important or even mildly relevant I record for prosperity.  One year ago this week I was just finishing up my trip to Chicago to…
