Diagnosis: endometriosis

That awful, awful pain in my abdomen finally has a suspected culprit. Of course, the only way to actually diagnose endometriosis is a laparoscopy, YUCK! Surgery is also one of the few ways to treat it, including a hysterectomy (no thanks). So we'll try hormone therapy and see if it helps (it does in some women) and of course the usual rounds of alternative therapies. Meanwhile, I get all the pain killers I want. So if you know anyone whose had success treating endometriosis without surgery please let me know. I'm open to a lot of things. For now, I'm willing to give some BC a try, as long as it isn't the pill. HA! I guess God really doesn't want me to have another baby yet :)

And yes, I can smile when I say that.

He's also worried I'm pre-diabetic. Which really pisses me off because I've only been "unhealthy" for about 3 years. 3 years! I spend my whole childhood eating brown rice, broccoli and Chex and then 3 years of fast food and sugar (and like, no exercise) mess me up. Lovely. And just in time for Christmas.

No, I'm actually blessed to get a heads up. I'm glad I mentioned my symptoms (and he noticed my insulin levels) so I have time to turn things around. Looks like someone's getting a new bike. Woohoo! :)
