I Might Be Dying; and Other Exaggerations
You may or may not have noticed that I've been M.I.A lately. Let's hope you have. Well: it boils down to my month of Murphy's Law and total dance card fullness. Guys, it's really hard being so in demand.
First, The Mailman and I had back to back to back to back Family parties that we planned.
Then, I begin battling my own health issues. Here's a candid The Mailman took:
I haven't been what one would call "regular" in about 3 years. I also haven't had health insurance for most of my adult life ( yay freelance!) But thanks to my new fancy full time job (I'm a social media specialist. It's a fancy term for playing on the face and twitter all day) I've finally been able to head to the good ol' M.D.
After taking numerous vials of blood...we found....nothing.
I started doing my own corn based research, if you catch my drift, and realized, my body doesn't digest food. Not a single bit. It took 7 days for that corn to present itself again. It seems to have caused my unexplained weight gain.
The doctor heard my hypothesis, agreed, and put me on digestive enzymes, B12 and probiotics. After a few days of this: fever, chills and pain below the tum tum (as if my ovaries were stabbing each other). So that's where I am. In bed, under a comforter in the summer, freezing cold. I looked a hot mess at Home Depot tonight. I'm pretty positive it's terminal and this is the end.
UFG'ers: help! Is this related? Is it just toxins getting out of my system? Have any of you had this?
In silver lining news: I did treat myself to a bomb pedicure:
Don't you die for that color!?
And I have 2 great recipes coming up. I promise! Stick with me, UFG'ers. If we can get through this, we're set for life!
