Stay in the swing, stay in the swing…

One of my cousins got married last night. It was fun, and a lovely, small event, but we had to drive about an hour and a half each way to get there, and we ended up getting home at around 1 last night. Waaay past this girl’s bedtime! I had to wake up earlyish for a doctor’s appointment today so the amount of  sleep I got left something to be desired. Reeeally not feeling like posting right now, but I know I’m going to regret it if I don’t–so easy for non-posting inertia to take over. Plus, there are a few things to note…

Had an appointment with Dr. Gutimov, my GI, today to discuss the results of some bloodwork and an ultrasound I had done a month or so ago…all clear! The ultrasound was to test for fatty liver, which apparently can be one of the common complications of IBD. According to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, two of the symptoms of liver disease can be low energy and fatigue, so I suppose it’s good to know that my liver’s in good shape.

While I never was one to get many headaches growing up, I’ve gotten some really bad one over the last year. You know, the kind where your brain feels like it’s sloshing around when you move, and you can’t sleep because your pillow feels like a rock. Those headaches usually went away after a day and a half or so, but last week I developed one that was lasting over 4 days. I went to my regular family doctor and she diagnosed…a migraine! I’d actually researched migraines after having suspicions with some of  the previous headaches, but ruled it out because I did not really see floaties, or have sensitivity to light. According to my doctor, not everyone has those though. I need to make another appointment though, because she said she expected the pain to go away by its self within another day or so, and although the grand majority has, I still have some head pressure and slight nausea.

I’ve got a few posts on migraines in the works, which I am going to try posting this week. I started freewriting them longhand while I was avoiding computer screens while my head was raging last week, and they need serious editing, but goals.

So, although this post is not a great work of literature either, but at least it’s a thing I got done during my lack-of-sleep-haze! Yay!
