Smelly things and Medical Fun

Smelly Things-

Why is it that everything smells TERRIBLE to me, right now? I mean everything. I just walked around my entire house and every room seems to have a stench. I am sure it's just me, but... ah... it's killing me here. (Nope- not prego... just took a test at the doctor, and it was not positive- Thank the LORD!)

Medical Fun-

Went to the doctor today to find out if my polycystical is back. Well, seems to be it *probably* is. I have to have an ultrasound, next week to make sure, but my doctor said she was almost 100% sure it was indeed back. yay!

What does this mean? WHO knows! Andy and I have some discussing to do. I can have surgery, live on birth control the rest of my life (apparently BC lessens the symptoms), have a hysterectomy, have a baby ("babies cure everything," so says my doctor), or just live with being sick and in serious pain. gah! What to do?

I might also look up "diets" to see what I might be eating that could be making things worse. Ok, so I know that diet plays a roll. But I like my candy :(

On the upside (sorry, Kellan, I am stealing this phrase for just one moment), I was ALONE without children for TWO.WHOLE.HOURS- even if I was having a very uncomfortable exam done, it was almost worth it! ha ha. Thanks, mom. :)

I s'pose I will keep you all updated, as I know more! :) Send happy vibes!

You've GOTTA be preggo to have that smell thing, right? If you're not, just go ahead and do it again! It's way more fun than a hysterectomy.

Good luck with that!

Stacy said...

LOL...my first thought was, "maybe she's preggo!" ;) I will be sending you happy vibes...that doesn't sound like fun. :(

i sometimes get a weird smell thing before i have a migraine. sometimes i even smell cigarettes- even though no one who lives near us smokes. crazy, huh?

I know that feeling about thinking that things stink sometimes. No one else seems to notice or think it does, so I don't know (and no, not prego either!)

Thinking or you and hoping you feel better...

Christina said...

I love it that you put the "not pregnant" note in there - as that was my first thought!!!
I'm sorry about the medical "fun"....but it sounds like you have several options and I'm sure you'll make the right choice. Maybe you'll move the timetable up and have another kiddo now!?! :o)

So sorry Brittany - wish I had any insight on what you should do. Your totally made me laugh at the end because just last week I realized I enjoyed my alone time having my teeth cleaned.

Ok what is polycystical? I'm not sure I agree with your doctor that pregnancy cures everything....strange way to look at things if you ask me. I do hope you find a manageable way to deal with it though.

Thanks for the nice comment on my collage. I guess playing with photoshop does require some patience but really I just like to play around with all the features until I find something I like. Experimenting is fun. :)

If babies cure everything then why didn't this thing go away with Matthew??? V Sorry to hear you have been in pain my friend. :-(

Super Kristen said...

Haha I thought you were pregnant too with the smell thing...

Sounds like you have some big decisions to make! Hopefully you don't have to rush anything, I'm sure you will know what it best sooner or later.

Good luck. I'll be praying for you.
