Yes I know I’m terrible with updating. 😅 Just still a combo of tiredness/laziness/busy/lack of motivation. Hoping to change it.
This isn’t going to be much of a post, just figured I should pop in with something.
Haven’t been up to much honestly. Just work and lazing about really.
Been playing a lot of Stardew Valley which my friend got me into. Its so addicting! 😩 Will probably take a break from that soon to finish off the original Final Fantasy VII again.
Lately been watching Hilda too. Some people have compared it to Gravity Falls, and I have to say they’re right! Its like a more wholesome one. I really love it! The premise of the movie pushed me to watch finally. Finished off the first two seasons and next is the movie.
Finally, I’ll share some update on my whole bladder/kidney stuff. I don’t remember what I shared and too lazy to look. Pretty much the same. They’re trying me on a new medicine in place of one of the others. I do like that this one doesn’t dissolve as soon as you put it in your mouth, doesn’t have as much of a taste and doesn’t seem to give me any side effects. The other one gave me bad dry mouth. Supposed to take pressure off the kidney’s which tend to hurt like all the time. I have to take the maximum dose of Tylenol most days. Lately been up more again peeing in the night. I seemed to do it less with the other medication, so not sure about this one. I’ll give it more time though.
Doctor said I could do surgery if I feel its not enough, but he said it would be massive. And I really want to avoid that. Especially if I don’t know it’ll help. For now I’ll stick with medication.
I am okay, just is annoying and painful a lot.
Anyway, that’s it for now.
Whoa, I haven’t updated in ages! 😲 Oops. 🤪
Honestly I haven’t been super active online. Been tired, lazy, and not real motivated. 😩
Also Happy Halloween! 🎃 Not doing anything myself. Not dressing up either. Usually just do that when I work on Halloween which I’m not this year. I’ll dress up the dogs though.
I guess I should give an update about the health issues I mentioned in the last post. Quite a bit to report there actually.
Well for one I ended up wearing a catheter for about a week which was horrible. It hurt so much. They claimed I would be able to work with it on but no way that I could, so I was off the whole week. Funny enough then the second since I had put in for a week off before all this. 🤪
Had a bunch of tests done. It seems the issue mostly is my kidneys. Both are working at around 50% and are rather swollen. And apparently the tube that connects to the bladder or whatever is thicker then it should be. That explains the bad side pains I get and probably the constripation since it likely puts pressure on everything. Also get pain in the groin. The doctor said surgery wouldn’t help much since its both kidneys. So he put me on a medication that helps my bladder hold more. On that and one that helps me go pee better. That one used to stuff up my nose badly but I guess my body got used to it. The newer one is annoying since it makes my mouth super dry. However, it does seem to help since the pain isn’t as bad, but that could be also due to the Tylenol I take daily. I switched to that from generic aspirin. Seems to help more. I still get a lot of pain, but not nearly as bad as before. Also not peeing as often and seem to be going better. So, I guess its helping. The worst is at work since I can’t always go when I need to and it hurts if I hold it. Half the time lately I just go anyway. 😛
Other then that not much going on. Been mostly lazy and playing a lot of games. Working on CrossCode’s DLC right now. Oh I also did get a Switch OLED which is pretty awesome. Also managed to snag a Playstation 5 from Playstation.com. Its pretty cool too.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Hopefully I don’t take months to update again. 😅
Should really go do some other stuff, but I’ll update real quick I guess.
Sooo, you know how I said my UTI stuff was getting better? Liiiiies! 😛
The antibiotics did help…but when I went off it went back to how it was pretty much. They tested my urine again and it didn’t have an infection (not before either when the results did finally come back), so they don’t know what’s wrong. So, getting some tests done in a couple weeks. Sadly, doubt they’ll show anything, though I hope so. I can’t stand this anymore. Its hard to sleep sometimes and I hate going to the bathroom all the time.
As for my bowel issues, still the same. Sometimes its okay and I can go, other times its hard and painful when I can’t. Last few days have been. Makes my sides and lower back hurt. The joys of my life! 😜
One slight plus is I’ve lost some weight. Last month was around 174, now 170. I don’t have a huge appetite with this stuff going on so I don’t eat a ton so that’s why. Not the best way to lose it, but I’ll take it.
Another happy thing is next week I’m off work for vacation. Though as usual just a stay at home one. But looking forward to it. I need the break.
Well, I guess that’s it for now.
