I remember the street name.. I dunno if your house was like 61 or something but I remember what it looks like, so don't worry. Let me know if you got my text, though! I don't want to leave you hanging!
Korean BBQ isn't spicy at all! (Did you forget I can't tolerate spicy?) And it's really fun where you grill it all in a fire-pit with friends and it's just a nice atmosphere :3
Also mom's gonna be picking you and Justin up at 3 and bringing us over to Yorkdale. Justin's mom should be bringing us home. Does this sound good?
Also, I don't know if you have my cell number in case anything happens before/ during/ etc because of pain/sleep/emergency stuff, but just let me know and I can PM it to you. I'm actually not sure if I have your number, but I don't think I do (new phone, you know how it goes) so if I could get yours that'd be great.
I have the tickets and everything printed. We were thinking dinner at 5-5:30 so we could take our time. (An hour or two of chilling, walking around, dinner, more hanging about before the movie, get to the movie a bit early cause I don't know if there will be a big crowd, etc)
Just so you know, we're planning to meet up around 3, but we're still debating on what our rides are lol, we should have stuff sorted by tonight, anyways. Chances are we're taking the subway and we're probably going to have dinner downtown too. Any preferences? I'm sorta in the mood for some Korean BBQ (ever been?) but I'm open to anything else.. or shall we decide then?
Hey! I ended up getting an extra ticket.. but even if you're not intending to stick around you're welcome to come and hang out :3 Tell me if you've confirmed.. but we're most likely going to meet at Yorkdale around 2 and the movie is at 8.
Hey so I was reading up on Endometroisis.. and.. well you were on Progesterone or Progestins right? >_> Because.. that's supposed to treat Endometroisis.. so.. if it's not that.. then.. >_> er.. it wouldn't be helping now would it? And.. same with Lupron.. (at least that's what it says.. cause it helps to lower hormone levels) so.. they were effectively giving you drugs for a condition you don't actually have.. then.. that's obviously why it's not working right?
._. I dunno.. I was just reading.. I know I'm no doctor but I find it interesting..
Diclofenac in suppository or pill form. Taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain.
One theory above suggests that endometriosis is an auto-immune condition and if the immune system is compromised with a food intolerance, then removing that food from the diet can, in some people, have an effect. Common intolerances in people with endometriosis are wheat, sugar, meat and dairy. Avoiding foods high in hormones and inflammatory fats also appears to be important in endometriosis pain management. Eating foods high in indole-3-carbinol, such as cruciferous vegetables appears to be helpful in balancing hormones and managing pain, as do omega 3 fatty acids, particularly EPA. The use of soy has been reported to both alleviate pain and to aggravate symptoms, making its use questionable.
@_@ This is interesting.. cause I remember how it suddenly got bad in Highschool ._. So part of me is honestly like.. really wondering how it happened (and I'm sure you think of it too) but man.. I just find it really interesting @_@
Like I said.. good luck @___@
(Oh and yeah I was reading and apparently swelling gets like.. more at your "time of the month" so.. that's why I guess sometimes it's invisible and other times it's easier to see) .__. But yeah..
:C That's pretty turdy.. not gonna lie..
But if it has to do with your period >_> Do you know if you.. want to have kids? Cause like.. you could have surgery to close the fal-tubes right? Unless that's not really the problem.. but I know that involves surgery.. but there IS one method that ISN'T surgical..
Quinacrine non-surgical sterilization for women (QS)
The use of quinacrine for non-surgical sterilization for women has also been researched. This method, was developed by Zipper et al. who reported a first year failure rate of 3.1%.However, despite a multitude clinical studies on the use of quinacrine and female sterilization, no randomized, controlled trials have been reported to date and there is some controversy over its use.
Pellets of quinacrine are inserted through the cervix into a woman's uterine cavity using a preloaded inserter device, similar in manner to IUCD insertion. The procedure is undertaken twice, first in the proliferative phase, 6 to 12 days following the first day of the menstrual cycle and again one month later. The sclerosing effects of the drugs at the utero-tubal junctions (where the Fallopian tubes enter the uterus) results in scar tissue forming over a six week interval to close off the tubes permanently.
In the United States, this method has already undergone Phase I clinical testing for F.D.A. approval. The F.D.A. passed this method during a Phase I clinical trial as showing in a small sample that the method is safe and effective. This was the result of a study published by Dr. Lippes at the SUNY Buffalo (see link below). In addition, the F.D.A. has waived the necessity for Phase II clinical trials because of the extensive data of prior safe use of Quinacine. The next step in the FDA approval process in the United States is a Phase III large multi-center clinical trial. The method is currently legally used "off-label" in the US, until final FDA approval of the method is obtained.
Many peer reviewed studies suggest that quinacrine sterilization (QS) is potentially safer than surgical sterilization.
I don't know your entire situation but.. I dunno.. I figured I might as well ask/ provide you with some info that might help.. ._.
I had a surgery back in '08 and they thought they removed endometriosis but it came back from the lab as... not endo so we were back to square one. :( I could get another one to see if things have changed (sometimes it's nearly invisible or something and it might be easier to see now?) but my doctor doesn't really recommend it so... not doing it again any time soon, I guess. ._.
(Haven't been here in a little while but I thought it was better than LJ)
:C Basically I just wanted to say that I read about your situation and I hope things go really well with the new drug. And hopefully you wont have insomnia :C.. Would the worst option perhaps be operation if drugs aren't treating it?
Either way, hopefully it doesn't get to that point and I hope the pain clinic can solve your problems. Taking a semester off sounds like a great idea at this point so you can concentrate on your health right now.. which comes first.
All in all, I just wanted to say good luck. Dealing with drugs that have side effects is a ***** :/ (I know the feeling on Paxil from Highschool and it's pretty rotten) thankfully there are always alternatives and I KNOW you will find a way that will finally work for you :)
I have hope for you!
