The Struggle Bus rolls along

I went an entire month without writing.  Buh-bye November!  See ya wouldn’t want to be ya!

I am still struggling:  Don’t have too much to update otherwise.

  1. Finally had the fine needle biopsy on my (empty) thyroid bed last week.  This was my 2nd one, so I was (properly, or so I thought) sedated and knew what to expect.  Nope.  No.  I was wrong and I don’t win.  The only positive thing was that I knew this technician, but not the doctor, and I think the tech (tried) to do me a solid by “talking” about things with the doctor – that I was able to pick up (if you get my drift….) I won’t go to the bad place here yet, because that’s been happening enough in my mind for the last 10 days already.  I don’t have a diagnosis yet, and I can speculate til the end of time because while I do know some things, I must wait to hear from the endocrinologist.
  2. Something is terribly wrong with my shoulders:  I speculate rotator cuff issues?  One of my doctors called in some pain medicine for me, and I will be honest with y’all here, Tramadol isn’t all that bad! I told my Mom a few nights ago that I’d almost rather have brain surgery again than this shoulder pain.  For real y’all.  No fun.
  3. Sometimes it’s quite overwhelming trying to manage my schedule.  In the next few weeks I have to deal with all the above, plus my brain scan and neurosurgeon appointment!

No words of wisdom today.  No positivity or self-care mumbo jumbo.  Writing.  Watching Ghost Adventures.  Water and early to bed.
