will you grab me a crueller?


In the last month, I've had: four bracelets, x-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, ten different prescriptions, and the most boringest blandest diet ever.

I've lost countless things: drinks in Vegas, meetings with certain TV stars, weeks of work, at least one pants size, and my cookies on several occasions.

But what have I learned?
-If your doctor is being an asshole, then get a new one.
-Write everything down.
-There is nothing more rewarding then actually vomiting in the ER to prove your point.
-Homemade turkey sandwiches are actually pretty good (even though I still hate making them).
-Never to take ibuprofen for granted again.

Oh, and what's wrong with me? Hard to say. There is some low back pain. A complex cyst on my ovary. Something very wrong with my stomach. And a general terribleness. Me and my awesome doctor are hoping the CT scan results shed some light. Meanwhile it's all turkey sandwiches and quiet nights in around here.

This is so true: There is nothing more rewarding then actually vomiting in the ER to prove your point.

I'm glad someone finally said it out loud.

I hope you feel better sooner. :)

So are you saying that on this food regimen there's no such thing as beer?? Cruelty! I hope your awesome doctor gets you on the path to being well again super-fast. In the meantime, I will totally make you turkey swammiches.

Feel better soon, lady!

I hope you vomited ON someone to prove that point. Hopefully in a projectile fashion.

I hope you feel better very soon. Hospitals and doctors suck balls.

Would it help if I vomited on someone? Because I would do that for you.

There's a lot to be said for quiet nights and there are worse sandwiches in the world than the turkey-flavored variety. Silver linings everywhere! Easy for me to say.

In any case, here's hoping that your doctor's qualification as 'awesome' is able to remove at least some of the anxiety that comes with general terribleness.

I hope you are feeling better already (sorry I'm so late to say so).

Ovarian cysts suck. I hope you are feeling better already!
