Second pap smear ever today. New doctor is really nice and good at listening, was ready to stop at any time and actually knew what she was doing and had the tiny speculum. No crying or death levels of pain, and we got a good sample, so yay. No one judged me for my weight/gain,… Continue reading health log/update 2015
I’ve started and stopped this post several times over the last couple hours. It’s not even anything particularly interesting, which is why I’ve started and stopped, I guess. But right now I’m having jack and coke and playing lego Marvel so I figured I’d take a break while I was observing the snow and actually… Continue reading Vaccinated
In July I had this thing where my neck/shoulder muscles didn’t want to move, so I got a massage, and I’ve been getting them every couple weeks since to try and loosen up the (apparently insane levels of) tightness, and I noticed something…and someday I’ll draw something to illustrate this better, but, when I’m on… Continue reading Massages + Disassociation
So, this afternoon I finally did it. I went to Planned Parenthood and got The Implant. I AM NOW BABY WORRY FREE for the next 3 years. The amount of stress that just vanished from my shoulders after the nurse said “okay, it’s in” is like…..unbelievable. I know I’ll be dealing with side effects (and… Continue reading You should see the other guy
So. I talked to my clinic and after two years off birth control and trying to get my body back in shape (with, eh, results) and realizing that it’s actually like, still debilitatingly painful – and painkillers don’t always work – and that I’m tired of freaking out every time I’m a day late, and… Continue reading Take that, uterus! (empowering myself, because I don't need to feel this way every month)
I took the week off of face stuff last week, and gave my skin a rest. Also, I was tired of poking my eyes so frequently (and I was hoping for the acne to quell). A friend of mine recommended some Sea Buckthorn oil, and while I was at whole foods over the weekend (to find… Continue reading Sea Buckthorn and etc
This blog is not by any means a place for expert advice, at best it’s the general wanderings and musings and evolution of “the process” – my process, a process, some kind of process; inexperienced me attempting to get somewhere and hopefully be better at it. Posts change with moods and whims because my interests… Continue reading fails
I’ve been sick with a cold-like-thing for almost two weeks, the symptoms themselves aren’t horrid, it’s just that I have no energy and end up completely exhausted after doing one thing that involves moving around. Last week I had a physical and a pap smear which was exciting. Good news is: my BMI is good… Continue reading Permission to rest
That moment when you know you should rest because you did too much on the weekend, but instead you feel like you should be doing things and your brain won’t shut off thinking about projects you think you need to do today or the world will end (but you actually don’t, and it probably won’t).
I’ve been dealing with very bad hormonal imbalance since March of last year. It goes up and down depending on how much ability I have to ignore it and how long I can go before taking handfuls of supplements every day starts to wear on me.
