Endometriosis: April Continues

Endometriosis: April Continues

Today is the beginning of the next moon cycle. They gave me stronger pills, so I will report back on how they are/aren’t working. I warned my manager at work of my “impending doom” as it were. Even yesterday, I knew it was coming. I felt tightness, pressure, and anxiety. I was sensitive to light,(…)

The Brain

In my studies of psychology, the brain, and its connection to our inner self, I have found some wonderful talks and links I would like to share: RSA Animate – The Divided Brain Left Brain vs Right Brain: Understanding the Myth and Reality of Left Brain and Right Brain Dominance Jill Bolte Taylor’s stroke of(…)

Reiki: Second Visit

Reiki: Second Visit

Appointment with Jesalyn again. There was no pain for her to relieve (yet) so I really didn’t notice as much. Though I am always peaceful after a session. The main thing I felt (which was amazing and strong) was love. I felt absolute love flowing from within me. I almost started crying it was so(…)

Bikram, I’ve missed you!

Bikram, I’ve missed you!

Today Hollie and I finally kept our yoga appointment. After almost 11 days of my ‘cycle’ I was desperate to get some action of any kind. Armed with my brand new yoga mat (the cats aren’t getting to THIS one!), and my trusty Hydro Flask, I was ready! Got there 20min early and signed up(…)

Reiki: First Visit

Saw Jesalyn. WOW! My pain is GONE! (I know the effects won’t be permanent, but still) Our sessions will consist of a mixture of Reiki and regular therapy. Why the therapy you ask? The theory is that the pains in our bodies are all derived from issues with the mind. If we can discover what(…)

Endometriosis: Symptoms Continue

Endometriosis: Symptoms Continue

Missed work today. Today is day 10 or 11 of my cycle. I’ve forgotten honestly. So much pain, and so much blood. This is after taking contraceptive pills to skip my cycle!! It didn’t work at all. No difference what so ever. Urgent Care said I should come in, but I just went to bed.(…)

Endometriosis: Ultrasound Results

Results were normal. Okay, now what? Apparently, nothing. Doctors are avoiding surgery at all costs, so now I act ‘normal’ for 3months and see what happens. "It is reassuring that the results were normal; I would not change the current plan, continue with the continuous birth control regimen, keep a pain diary, and reassess after(…)

Endometriosis: Ultrasound

Went in for the ultrasound. It was awful. You have to chug 24oz of water 1.5hrs before hand and hold it till they say you can use the restroom. The tech was a super nice lady. She laughed about how my legs were too long for the table. I had to hold them in place(…)

Endometriosis: OBGYN Visit

Super Bowl sucked. I was in pain all day. I was still bleeding from our "love connection" four days later, so I panicked and asked for a sooner appointment. Of course, none were available. Funny little Asian male doctor (of course the universe would give me a male doctor for womanly issues). Upon primary inspection,(…)
