A while back I posted about some health issues I've been having. Well, my period was late, and I rather thought I might be pregnant. So I took 6 pregnancy tests (3 home tests, 2 pee-in-a-cup-at-the-doctor's-office tests, and one blood test) over the course of 3-4 weeks. All came back negative. Along with the blood test for pregnancy, the doctor had the guy draw blood to check my hormone levels, my iron levels, and several other things.
My doctor originally thought I had PCOS (poly-cystic ovary syndrome), and I thought that maybe I had a tubal pregnancy, or that my hormone levels were too low to register as being pregnant. When my blood tests came back, my iron levels were dangerously low, my vitamin D was really low, and the doctor told me that my iron was too low for dietary changes to bring it up to a normal level...etc.
I've been taking iron supplements for about a month and a half now, and I'm finally having another period. It's lasted 8 days... and counting... (usual for me is 5). So I'm a little bit less anxious than I have been recently, but more grouchy, crampy, bloaty...
On another note, I injured myself recently -dislocated my hip- while having sex. Usually, I can put it back in easily, and it's usually not too painful, but this time was different. It stayed out of place too long, and I couldn't get it back in all the way, and it still hurts.
My boss sent me on an errand at work the next day, and I was required to lift 2 wheels out of the trunk of my car. In light of my recent hip injury, I thought it would be beneficial to carry both of the wheels at the same time, and only make one trip, as opposed to walking twice the distance (50 feet-ish each direction). So I picked up one wheel in each hand (they're not light) and I started walking. By the time I got them to where they were going I had dislocated 2 fingers; my middle finger on my right hand, and my index finger on my left hand. Apparently, I'm not supposed to favor any joint in my body, because it will cause unexpected casualties in other, unrelated parts of my body.
Oh, and I watched to new Harry Potter movie last night, and it was pretty good, except they keep leaving Dobby out of the movies, and changing which characters do what.
