no more idiots?

Posted on January 20, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I just realized that I use the word idiot way too frequently. Must get a grip on that…

the tongue idiot

Posted on January 20, 2006. Filed under: Candida, The Dyingness |

As I’ve said in earlier posts, I’ve been having health issues for over 2 years now (I think it’s a new disease that will be named after me — haha, or not), but my tongue is all patchy and gross and anyway my GI had run out of diagnostic tests to put me through so he sent me to a dermatologist. I like to refer to her as “the tongue idiot”. The tongue idiot said to me that it was Geographic Tongue. Now, I’ve been told a few times that this is the case, but it’s also been disproved (is that a word?) several times as well, including by my dentist who sees tongues every day and actually has the condition herself. I then asked a few very simple questions such as:

Q: My throat really hurts and feels like my tongue too, so it’s spreading. Is that possible?

A: No, that is not a characteristic of Geographic Tongue

(Exactly — you moron)

Q: It seems to clear up when I have a B12 shot, is that normal?

A: No, that is not a characteristic of Geographic Tongue

(Exactly — I can’t believe they gave you a degree).

Q: So you’re sure it’s Geographic Tongue?

A: Yes (she then proceeds to rant about how naturopathic medicine is a crock)

(Feel threatened oh great tongue idiot?)

Frustration proceeds to take over from here…

driving with the idiots

Posted on January 20, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I was driving home from work today and a woman put on her signal to come into my lane so I left so much room that 10 cars could have fit in, but she was still hesitant and couldn’t make up her mind, so I went ahead and started to get into the on ramp for the highway. She THEN (1 full minute from putting on the blinker) decides to try to cut me off and merge. I don’t think so lady. I saw in my rearview mirror her expression and hand gestures which pissed me off even more, but really, if you don’t know how to drive get off of the roads. Survival of the fittest (and it’s amazing how so many people have made it this far).

the healthy years? (or not)

Posted on January 20, 2006. Filed under: The Dyingness |

I appear to have a fun new disease that no one can figure out. If there are any doctor’s in the house who want to take a stab…haha. Candida appeared to be the culprit for a while, but that seems to be under control and symptoms are returning. I will have to remember to start a Candida support group though…people with diabetes or celiac’s really aren’t allowed to complain or to cheat on their diets with me anymore. Not after having to cut out gluten, wheat, dairy, sugar (even fruit) and any starchy foods that turn into sugar. I keep being told I’ve done a great job of this and I hear people say “I could never do that” which gets on my nerves because of course you could. Do you really think that it’s you craving that big mac? Nope — it’s that body that you have conditioned and you can change the conditioning pas de problem. Anyway, that’s just my rant and I’m sure there will be more. I’ll have to remember to talk about the stupid tongue lady. I mean how do these people get through med school!?!?

where do thoughts come from? who knows, they just appear

Posted on January 20, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I just had Punky Brewster pop into my mind this morning — where did that come from? All of these odd memories filling up space. I mean I haven’t heard that name for over 15 years! Not really important — just feel like a lot of random memories are appearing and I’ve decided to make note of them. I also want to start collecting random conversations I hear throughout the day.
