I am so glad everyone enjoyed the post from yesterday!

Yesterday was also one of those days where my body decided to get sick.. only it could not decide what kind of sick it wanted to be...
I have been having female pain since Sunday night and I thought it might be because a new product I was trying out or that I went through 2 pill cycles ( 6 months) with out taking a break, hence no period. Anyhow I could not get in touch with my gyno . so I went to my internist.. both he and the nurse practioner did a pelvic exam and rectal exam.. ( JOY ;-( ) The doc was not happy with the pelvic exam because it was as if the pain was traveling a little on the left side .. bluntly everything hurts in that region. So not sure if it is just getting over my cycle or ...what.. not to mention we thought I might have a urinary tract infection .. the urine test was "not too bad" so they decided to send that off to be cultured. This pain is ridiculous though.. they are treating me as if i have a urinary tract infection with Bactrim and that little pill that makes makes your tinkle change colors and become a toxic mess for panties and potties. lol... some of the pain has quieted down but the internal pain on the left side is still there... Consequently I am have a pelvic sonogram. ( ANYONE HAD ONE OF THOSE???) ... on Friday afternoon.

My eating was good yesterday .. although my sweet husband did give me a dark chocolate kiss last night..( he knows I love those and hates seeing me n0t feel well... he made me chicken soup too.. and his soup is the best.. I also had 2 M&Ms ~chocolate.. does a body good ... ~ I had absolutely no diet soda yesterday.. that was hard.. but in case it is a kidney or bladder infection or something in that family I thought my body could use the break .. so I drank... water, and cranberry juice.... I took the bactrim and that other pill last night and one of them made me green... I did not feel well at all.. so this morning I am going to eat my oatmeal and take the Bactrim with skim milk and see if that helps..more than anything .. as you all know.. I hate feeling green... I am going to try and post my food log... OHHH and I forgot .. to post my Stats ( I know I said originally I would post them next week) .. but no time like the present:
W: 185.4 (yesterday I weighed and I was 187)
H: still 4ft 11 in. tall..
So thats where I am today... I would just love for this pain to go away...
not so happy today but moving on and moving down..
Wish I could stay home in bed.. I feel the best laying down.. I guess because there is no pressure around that area when I am on my back.. I dunno..

oh honi!! I hope you feel much better soon and they will figure out what your body has without any more painful or uncomfortable exams.
Thinking of you.

Honi, I hate to hear you are not feeling well. UTI's even when the dr says it is only mild can be horrid!!! Hope you are well soon and they figure this out.

Ack to the anal exam! Holy moly. I hate that. One time in college I refused medical treatment when the ONLY exam they wanted to perform was an anal one. I asked if they could get the same results with a blood test. Yes. Then get the damn needle. I'll wait for the lab results, thank you.

I hope they figure out what the deal is! I've had two UTIs in my life and thought I would die both times. Here's to medications that change our bodily fluids into nuclear waste!

Oh dear, Honi, I am sooooo sorry to hear that you are not feeling too well right now. I hate to think of you in pain :-(

I shall try and send some positive vibes your way!

Until then, make sure that you look after yourself my friend.

Thinking of you!

Warm hugs,

Pelvic Sonogram or rather Ultrasound as they call them here… Me (hands up) Nothing to it honestly… I had one a couple of years ago when I was diagnosed with PCOS, just think of a vibrator with a condom on! Lol

It's just a better way to see what's going on inside! Actually it's quite fascinating looking at the pictures, I still have a picture of my ovaries somewhere! lol

I hope you will be feeling better soon and you find out what the problem is…
