I love the internet. Obviously. But, I really, especially love Google. Google is my new best friend, and my confidant, and my personal guru, and my diagnostic genius. See, I can type in something like "why do I feel like crap all the time?" and it will come up with a list of ideas to help me figure out what my problem is.
In fact, it wasn't some brilliant medical professional that diagnosed my condition. Yep, it was Google. Thank you! Of course, Google came with me to my appointments and gave clues to the "genius" of a doctor who "diagnosed" me.
So, the other day, after getting test after test, and no results, and after calling my doctor so many times, and leaving so many messages that I was probably looking at a restraining order in my near future, I finally decided to be sneaky. And I made a secret appointment with my doctor's receptionist without telling her what I needed to be seen for. I'm so sneaky!!
When, I got there, the nurse, saw me, and said, "Oh, I was going to call you!" Yeah, sure you were.
My doctor then told me I needed to do this radioactive something or other test, and I said you already ordered that. I had it done last week, I'm here for the results. Dumbass.
After waiting for my doc to blow smoke and piddle around, he finally came back and said you have a nodule on your thyroid. It might be cancerous, but whatever, we're going to let you wait for another month before you can get in to see the specialist.
No big deal. It's not at all scary that you may or may not have cancer. Who cares, right?
So, this is about what I look like now. I've lost upwards of 30 pounds, only my eyes are bulging out of my head, and my neck is three times its normal size. Seriously, I Am HOT!!
Ok, the picture might be a tiny exaggeration. But still.....my test results suggest that my thyroid is very prominent.
Obviously, this illness is consuming me. It may or may not be because I am completely self-absorbed and think of anyone or anything else. Or maybe it's because I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time.
I have to be honest, I kind of feel stupid because it's not all that uncommon, and it could be a lot worse, but I'm just sick (no pun intended) of it!
This post sounds like a major complain session. Well, that's because it is.
I'm currently taking volunteers who would be willing to take a shift of having my symptoms for a little while. I wouldn't mind a little break.
And to top it all off, my Ipod broke. I thought it was my car attachment thingy, so I went and bought a newer more expensive one to replace it. Only it also doesn't work with my Ipod. So, I figure it's my Ipod that doesn't work. Boo!!
