October 23, 2015 - So, the sore throat and general icky feeling I thought was allergies was actually strep. Never, EVER ignore strep for three weeks. It kicked my butt. Got rid of it with antibiotics, then had terrible pain in my jaw and right side of my face and neck. I can only describe it as a worse pain than when I had sixteen teeth surgically removed and my jawbone filled down. It actually feels like when I broke a tooth all the way down into my jaw and then it became infected. When I broke my hand, it hurt less. I went to a clinic and, apparently, I have an infected salivary gland, probably caused by the strep. Six pills a day for seven days and I have to suck on lemons. I HATE raw lemons, but if it gets rid of this pain, it's worth it. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to the meds I was given. I'm going to take the first dose, but if I puke it all back up, I'm going to have to wait until Monday to get a different prescription. If there is one business that should be open seven days a week, it should definitely be doctors.
October 2, 2015 - Finally have a diagnosis. Behind everything lies Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Not much of a problem in itself and completely manageable, but me not knowing, and thus not managing it, has left me with diabetes, high blood pressure, nerve damage, a fatty liver, etc... (Not to mention the outwardly obvious symptoms which left me with zero self-confidence for ages.) Unfortunately, there is no magic pill to fix it. My doc gave me progesterone for two weeks, but that was a quick fix for an immediate problem. I still think there is something else going on though. For the past few days my neck, not throat, hurts and is slightly swollen and warm to the touch, along with a bit of a fever. I'm thinking infection or something similar, but I'll have to wait through the weekend to get an appointment. In four days, I have slept maybe five hours total. On the bright side, I've been doing some autumn cleaning in my writing folder and decided to rework some of my old fics that never went anywhere. (I promptly stapled my finger, twice, and now I'm typing one handed. How pleasant.)
April 20, 2015 - CT scan was clear. Ultrasound was clear. White count is still up, but I don't feel sick. (Anymore than usual, anyway.) Doc wants me to come in to talk about my other test results. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. This mystery illness is going on roughly nineteen years now. I am so sick of being sick.
March 5, 2015 - Having a CT scan tomorrow. Am currently in rather terrible pain. Nauseous. Cannot breathe properly. Existing hurts.
March 3, 2015 - I'm having some medical problems, possibly necessitating a hospital stay. Hopefully, I'll find out at eleven a.m. tomorrow. If I don't go in, I'll edit this. If I don't edit it, you'll know where I'll be.
What am I working on now?
Yonin Monogatari - I've got bits and pieces of three chapters, but not an entire one yet. I'm also not happy with much of what I've written. I can't quite figure out how I want to format it. I've got four characters living four mostly separate childhoods and I can't decide if I want to group it by age or by character.
I am fully aware that I am not a great writer.
I look at some of my stories and can't believe I wrote something so horrible. I can get thousands of glowing reviews for a fic and still think something is Old Shame. But I Just - Can't - Stop! I have to write! It's like a drug for me! Most of the things I write never make it past my computer, but every so often, I feel that something must be shared. Usually, it's humor, because I love making people laugh.
