It's just like going to Maaco
So everything is fine, this far nothing is irregular. YAY!!
I am going to have surgery. There are 3 things left and we are just going to hit them all at once. Much simpler than in and out and in and out and in and out… …I only have so many jokes about checking out my junk.
So there is a fibroid and a polyp that are likely the source of my current issues. There is also something else that the Dr. felt, but didn’t show up in the ultrasound which, FYI, my fibroid looked kind of like a cat - I really wanted to take a picture of the screen but there was the whole awkwardness of being in the midst of invasive ultrasound and then posting a picture for you guys that was taken DURING the invasive ultrasound. So they want to do a biopsy of my uterus to make sure everything is ok. And since they will be all up in my junk that is a very good time to do it.
None of this is particularly unusual, people just don’t talk about it. And since I was so scared because I didn’t realize how normal it is, because people don’t really talk about it, I am letting everyone know what is going on.
I am having surgery. It is routine. I will go under. There is a fibroid, a polyp and something they need to figure out. It is all normal, nothing looks sinister. And if I want to have kids, I’d have to address these issues sooner or later - so why not just do it the year I have already paid out most of my deductible?
literally have 48 pages left in Coalition's End...
I think I’ll finish it tomorrow after work, I’ve been reading all day. I will say one this thing though, I cannot wait until the game comes out so I can start bringing the rain down on the damn glowies.
Shit just got personal on my I-love-these-game-characters-too-much-to-let-damn-glowies-be-the-end-of-them level. Forty-eight pages left, but these damn polyps have been such a pain throughout the whole read.
Still… with every page I turn I can’t help but think, this really is the end, isn’t it?

My throat has been bothering me since the end of Warped Tour. In fear that I may have polyps on my vocal chords, I am going to the doctor tomorrow.
- It feels like I have food caught in my throat except when I swallow nothing goes down and the feeling remains
- My throat is dry even when I consistently drink water
- I am not in pain and my throat does not feel scratchy but the feeling is uncomfortable and sometimes it is a bit more difficult to breathe
- I am not sick or congested
- My voice has been hoarse for about a week and a half now
Hopefully I just strained it and vocal rest will do the trick but something makes me think that it’s more serious than that. If anyone has ever had these symptoms before, get at me and let me know what it could be.
They found ‘polyps’ in my throat when they did my Barium swallow test. So now I have to go back and schedule an upper endoscopy. I hate hospitals. I hate the idea of a tube going down my throat. And I am terrified that they may find out more bad news and I won’t be able to sing anymore or something ahhhhh.
I know for the majority of the world, this is a really simple procedure… but I panic over EVERY little thing, so this is pretty much a massive source of terror for me.
