I really am made of sugar and spice and will melt in the rain…

Disclaimer: I’m going to whine here. Stop reading if you don’t wanna hear it.

All last week I was feeling all oogy so I went to see my doctor on Thursday. He said that he thinks I might be a little anemic, so he took a bunch of blood and told me he would let me know next week.
Basically, what has been happening is my brain was not connecting with my words. I was thinking one thing and something totally different was coming out. It seemed like some kind of mild aphasia.
For example, when I was thinking “oatmeal” I said the word “coconut” and I kept forgetting things right as I was about to say them. It happened often enough and enough days in a row for me to know something is wrong. Anemia makes sense since I've lost so much weight recently, and it happened so fast. Probably just need some stronger vitamins or something.
He said if that is not the case then we will do a brain scan of some sort next. I’m hoping that it doesn’t come to that, because that doesn’t sound like fun at all. But if I do get my brain scanned I really want to keep copies of the pictures. I’m trying to figure out how I will be able to swing this. Even if they just let me take a photo of the screen that would be fine.
If anyone has any tips, let me know. How often do you get the chance to take photos of the inside of your head?

Yesterday I thought Fish and chips would be a good idea for lunch. It has been months since I have eaten anything deep fried. I didn’t think it would hurt. I was wrong!
About an hour after eating it, that familiar pain of glass churning in my gal bladder came back. It was horrible, and got progressively worse throughout the day.
I didn’t end up doing anything I had planned to do yesterday evening because I was pretty much laying in the bathtub contemplating walking over to the emergency room and telling them to just take it out already. Screw this whole natural health idea of cleansing my body and keeping my organs. That shit hurts!
I really thought it was going to explode on me. After getting a few minutes of on and off sleep in the bathtub I took some pain meds and got a heating pad and propped myself up on the couch. I found that if I sat up in a certain way it hurt a little less.
After watching the sun come up, I finally drifted off to sleep. At some point around noon, Jon woke up and found me out in the living room. He sent me to bed where I managed to sleep until about 2PM.
I woke up with the pain in my stomach much more manageable, but the pain in my head from not drinking coffee yet was pretty intense at that point. (When it rains it pours!)
I sent the kid to the café to grab some black tea since I thought coffee would be too harsh on my poor tummy and started my day.

I had promised to take her to go see that skating movie that is out. It is an SNL comedy thing. Can’t even remember what it is called right now. She seemed to like it, but I really didn’t like it at all. If the seats were more comfy at the theatre I would have probably slept through it. (I did try) Needless to say, I don’t recommend it, unless you are 12, or a stoner, or a man. Lots of obvious “haha” jokes if that makes any kind of sense.
Just not my thing, therefore I’m sure it will be a huge hit and massively successful.
