So much is happening in my life right now and somehow I am keeping it together. I leave to go to Las Vegas in 3 days. I am terrified of flying but my brother lives there and I haven’t seen him in 4 years. I was on scheduled to get my period the whole week that I am on vacation. So I thought I would miss a week of my birth control and knock my period back a week. So I stopped and I got my period and started taking the pill again. Then I got it again witch put me right back on schedule. So the next month (this month) I did it again. I stopped taking the pill and no period. The week went by and still no period. I started my pills again last week and still nothing. I have now convinced myself that I am pregnant. I am a grown woman and shouldn’t have done something so careless but I did. I took a test on Wednesday and it was negative. Hmm, I guess I will take another one on Sunday because then I will be like a week late. I may have just messed up my body by messing with the pills or I may have gotten myself pregnant. And this just is not a good time. O.K. Moving on to problem #2.
I have kidney stones and went to the Urologist for an exam. He said the stones in my right kidney are too large to pass with out getting stuck. So now I have a lithotripsy scheduled for September 11th. I am coming home from Vegas on the 7th, blood and urine test on the 8th and pre op clearance from my PCP on the 10th. Now if it turns out I’m pregnant then I will not be having this surgery done at all. Then I have no idea what will happen. O.K. Moving on to problem #3.
During a routine blood test last month it was found that something was off with my parathyroid. I went and had a scan (witch cost me $185) and it showed some shadow or something. Then this Monday I went and had a sonogram on my neck. I get home last night to a message that I need to call the nurse back at my Dr.’s. So I call this morning and I have a growth on my parathyroid and a nodule on my thyroid. Now I have to see an Endocrinologist. The only good thing about it is the growth on the parathyroid may be what is causing my stones. O.K. Moving on to problems 4, 5 and 6.
My boyfriend can’t find his drivers license. His license he has is expired and may not get him on the plane on Monday. My cats have stopped peeing on my furniture but my vet is refusing to give me more prescription food until I bring in another urine sample and pay $52. So I was forced to buy food from the pet store witch will probably erase the month of good that the special food did and I will probably have to start all over. And last but not least……. I have no money. If I have to keep missing work I will be out of sick time and go unpaid therefore I will not be able to make my mortgage.
Did I already mention that I missed a period?
How can I possibly have a good time on vacation now?
