It's almost 2:00am. Why am I staying up watching the World Series, now in the sixteenth inning?
yeah, I watched all 18 innings I didn't think it was ever gonna end
I'm not one to stand and get blamed for something I did NOT do.
I don't stick around when I'm not wanted.
I hate it when people contradict themselves...then blame you for it.
Go find another punching bag.
two hernias recurred. Doctor doesn't think it's worth doing anything despite the worsening pain and problems over the years since the original and the new flareup from the recurrence. Like most pro-mesh surgeons he's also convinced the mesh is not the problem.
See a different surgeon. Mesh is such an issue. Inguinal hernias? Umbilical?
Inguinal, bilateral which is a concern for a non-mesh technique like the shouldice repair i'm hoping to try for next. Unfortunately there's only one surgeon here recognized for that and he's not responding to attempts to get in touch. The issue is also the first guy is partially right. Recurrent hernias are touchy bastards and when you've had a mesh repair you have a lot of scar tissue and garbage already inside your body that they have to work around, especially since important genital nerves and seminal vesicles go right through that area.... which probably is why I feel like I got kicked in the balls so much.
See if you can get a referral to a pelvic floor therapist for a little while to at least work on the pain and identify what you are doing to contribute to the failure. We do a lot of scar work and usually can improve pain (or at least halt the progression) while you are looking for a more permanent solution.
had mri earlier this week and go back to the dr on thrsday, you can clearly see there is nothing btween l1, and l2. no wonder my back is so fucked up
Republicans would be laughable if 40% of our country wasn't so stupid. Listening to one on npr this morning blather on about isis and drug dealers joining the caravan. Like they are going to walk from over a thousand miles away to a public spectacle and demand asylum. And as far as terrorists go, when I was a trooper we were more concerned about domestic terrorism. Right wing antigovernment sovereign citizens and such. III percenters and other anti american militia. Terrorists disguised as patriots. The people who are murdering politically in the U.S. right now. So many anti Obama stickers out in western Colorado.
Fuck me *sigh*
Kids are loud.
Every time I come across an Asian restaurant advertising "MSG-free!" to pander to customers over here, I always shake my head at this reminder of sheer stupidity in the West.
I don't understand why we fly the flags at half-mast everytime there is a mass shooting. Mass shootings are not to be mourned. They should be a celebration. A triumph of the rights of the individual versus the tyrannical rights of the majority. It doesn't matter what the people want. If an individual wants to exercise his rights to violently protest whatever, the people need to accept it. There really is nothing more American than mass shootings. You can tell because only Americans regularly have them. We do it bigger and better. So next time a school, hospital, church, or store gets shot up and lives are ripped apart, raise your guns in the air and celebrate freedom.
My child kept waking me up last night.
My current life in a few memes.
More than 217 aftershocks later -
Glad you're okay, @redravin !
I am refinancing my student loans because I have a variable rate for a few.. and they have literally increased by 2.5% in the past year. I'm done with this nonsense.
Not I’m not OCD
But does anyone else get annoyed by the microwave flashing an alert??
Like I stopped cooking before the end
And it wants me to start it again
And I see it while watching TV,
Out of the corner of my eye, scrolling
So I have to actually expend energy to get up
Go over and clear it.
No, I’m not OCD...but maybe, just maybe...
I’m a little wound up and lazy
Never good enough...
People’s expectations and qualifications
Wear me down
Wha??? Ain’t years of work good enough?
Wha??? Ain’t being a decent person with a personality good enough?
Etc and so on...
It’s difficult to let go of their views and observations and whims
Sure, intellectually, you know what’s right and where you stand.
But periodically, emotionally, you just get punch drunk
“What have you done for me lately?”
Lately as in a moment ago...
