Fashion/style. My sense of it sucks. But I feel like I'm starting to get an idea of what it is I like. Here are a few things I've purchased lately to help me find my own style. (necklace, hair clip, scarf - all for under $30. Not too shabby, I don't think.)

I have no sense of style either. I gave up years ago and just wear what I like. :)

Grr! I now have thrush in my mouth (pretty sure) due to a combination of the last flagyl treatment and my lowered immune system from having the cold/flu at the same time. Waiting to hear back from the doctor to see if he needs to see me or will just call in something for it. Glad my insurance is back in place!

As a follow up, the medicine lozenges for thrush taste SO bad and I have to suck on them five times a day for two weeks. My mouth is going to taste bad for a long, long time. :(

I think I had a little thrush recently, I was taking a steroid inhaler to save my lungs from the mold in my apartment and you have to rinse your mouth out after you take it to prevent thrush. and I rinsed but after a few days my throat was killing me and my tongue was getting white so I stopped the inhaler but couldn't get to a Dr for 2 days and by the time I could I was feeling much better. can thrush go away on its own if you take away the cause (inhaler) and catch it early??? I just don't know.
This was right after the BV treatment that lead to some yeast that cleared up by its self then the "thrush" and now I thing I'm having BV symptoms again. there was a week were everything seemed right down there and not its going back to the way it used to be (extra (what I thought was normal) discharge). But even if it wasn't thrush, maybe I should call my gyno and tell her I think the BV might be back or should I wait until I see her for my IUD insertion next month.... *sigh*

If I didn't know better, I'd think that pweb itself was infected with yeast and spreading it to all of us!

Pretty much writing this post makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little...but I think that's not an entirely terrible thing.

I've found a wedding dress, possibly THE dress I'd like to wear. Have I seen it in person and/or tried it on? Hell no. But I sort of love it. zero has said a few times now, without any prompting from me, if I want to get a dress and just have it around, he'd be totally okay with that. The last time he mentioned it was walking by a dress shop on the way to Zoo Lights.

He helped me look but it was very important to me that I actually buy it, so it is from myself. My one year anniversary in the Chicagoland area is coming up on February 3rd and I posted, while I was still in AZ so at least a year ago, that I wanted to mark that with a ring. Just to be able to wear a reminder that I got myself here, I've lasted at least the year I said I wanted to give it a shot, and while I'm making absolutely no money, I'm also not losing any, all of which is a big deal to me.

He still wants me to give it to him when it comes in so he can physically give it to me but that makes no sense/serves no purpose, so I told him no.

hehe, I almost didn't because I thought people wouldn't think it was anything else unless I posted it in the wedding planning thread but then I figured just to be safe given how it looks...

So you gals may remember about a year ago almost to the day I was having a bunch of pain in the uterus and has to get lots of test done and ultra sounds and such. and how everything ended up being ok (IUD shifted) but my dr was looking into my lack of period. The fist place she looked was PCOS which both blood test and ultrasound were negative for.

so she suggested it might be a genetic condition which led to this post

thoughtreader wrote:So I got my blood test back, and everything is normal. Which is good. The Dr was mainly testing for PCOS and I don't have it. She also tested kidney, thyroid, liver and other things and they were all normal.
BUT...
I might have a genetic disorder.
When my test came back negative my Dr looked back over my history and connected some things I would never have thought to connect; my height (or lack there of), my congenital cataracts, broad chest, frequent childhood ear infections, and lack of period. Put them all together and I might have Turner's syndrome. So I'm being referred to a geneticist to get tested and see if I have it or not (NO idea how we are going to pay for the testing but I guess thats a bridge we will cross soon). I'm hoping for a no but the more I read about it the more likely it seems. Not the a positive diagnosis will change anything much I'll still be me, just extra monitoring to make sure other things I could have problems with don't happen or are caught early. If I do have it I most likely have a more mild case.
I'm just trying to stay positive and keep myself in a good place while I continue to play the waiting game.

*sigh* its just one more thing added to the pile of crap....


Well I never did get the testing done, because it was going to cost $1000 or more, so I put it on the back burner behind life an shoulder surgery. well fast forward to 2 weeks ago it was time to get my IUD taken out and a new one put in. I liked my new lady Dr (technically a nurse) but apparently my long vagina and resilient cervix gave her problems. So I had to go in to have an ultrasound today with a "real Dr" just to make sure the new IUD had settled into the correct place. It had which was good news because I didn't even want to imagine the discomfort of having them move the stupid little thing around. But while she was poking around down there with the ultrasound probe and talking about all that fun sex/period history stuff the new Dr mentioned PCOS as a possible cause of the no period. I said the last ultrasound a year ago and blood test had said I don't have it "but feel free to check them out while you're down there"
And you know what cysts all up over my ovaries, "text book PCOS pictures and everything" and shock that last years ultrasound didn't show any cysts.
So I guess its just a case of this is the simple answer and why I don't have a period and all is good. And I don't have to get the $1000 test.

so yay? I have PCOS and it explains a lot and yeah...

Ack, such mixed feelings, eh? Hooray we've finally figured out what's wrong with me! But wait, there's something wrong with me.

I'm glad that hopefully you can start some sort of treatment, though, and you didn't have to shell out for an expensive test.

Exactly!

As far as treatment it seems pretty minimal and are things I'm already doing. healthy diet and exercise to help prevent weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol... apparently you are at a higher risk. I already try to eat healthy and once my shoulder gets better from surgery on tuesday I plan in exercising again. I'm going to have some blood test cholesterol levels fasting blood sugar to try to catch anything that might be brewing but think they will all be fine.

Later when I want to start having babies I might have to go through some fertility treatments but should respond to them well so thats good news for later.

And I could take hormonal BC now to have/regulate a period but like (LOVE) my IUD and the Dr said its not making things better but not making them worse so fine to keep in. So I think I'll just stick with it. Maybe once I get all the arm stuff figures out I'll look into an annual period or something....

So really right now its just good to know whats wrong.

How is it fair that my period showed up 3 weeks after giving birth? One of the best things about having babies is putting off menstruating for awhile.
