Bean and I spent a good portion of the weekend arguing. I'm angry and depressed because I'm broken and he just doesn't get it. I told him I was pissed because it's so frustrating trying to get an appointment at the new GYN, among other things. So he offered to call Monday morning. Of course by Monday I forgot all about it. But he did get me an appointment for early next week.
Along with being an GYN mess, I'm also made myself a regular at the ENT (Ear, Nose, & Throat or Otolaryngologists). I've managed to collect problems in all three of those categories.
Ears - Both conductive & sensorineural hearing loss. Not sure the cause but I had ear infection after infection as a child. Also have ETD (Eustachian Tube Dysfunction) & a family history of hearing loss. Both grandparents were deaf.Nose - Oh snotty nose! Bring the allergies on.Throat - Tonsillitis & I share a long past. After my tonsils swelled almost completely closed several times in college, they were removed when I was 21. No problems since.
I had allergy testing a couple weeks ago. After going for the results last week I learned I'll allergic to everything they tested me for. Including trees, grass, weeds, cotton, puppies, kitties, mold, dust and the American cockroach (so gross). I'd go live in a bubble but I'm probably allergic to that too. *sigh* I start allergy shots soon. But my hearing has gotten slightly better. The ENT is still talking about putting tubes in my ears to even out the pressure from ETD. I feel too old for ear tubes.
My blood pressure dropped from 140/90 to 115/80 since stopping Microgestin. Yay!
I need a more irresponsible look on life too. It seems to work for everyone else. I have three piercing in each ear along with a short lived (rejected) navel piercing a couple years ago. I decided to have my navel re-pierced this past weekend. Why? I've always liked them, even with the slut stereotype. My stomach already has several scars on it so it's not like I have that much to lose. Not too many people actually see my stomach (or would want to) other than Bean. It was my random idea a month or so ago if Clomid #1 didn't work. I'm actually glad I did. It has been way less painful than the first time I had it done.
