Gut Don’t Lie

Before I make any kind of posting, I’m going to plug Urban Sunrise again. I know that some folks who read this are under 18, so they can’t post on it yet, but if you like boards, please check it out.

On Friday, my throat started hurting and my gut instinct was that this was some kind of infection. It felt kind of like the beginning of strep. It’s been worse every day and I’ve noticed other signs of an infection of some sort. It’s still not as bad as full-on strep can be, but it’s hurting constantly and I’m trying to find ways of dealing with it. Mainly I’ve tried to eat things that coat my throat in mucus…sugars, dairy products, etc. I’m basically using anything that a choir director would’ve banned the week of a competition.

I would schedule an appointment with a family practice doctor for Monday, but I have to do the test to determine if I can work (so my rheumatologist will fill out loan discharge papers on my student loan) at the therapy center. He, my mom, and I are fairly certain of what the results are going to be. I’m not really looking forward to the test, though. I hate being in pain, and I know it will only worsen it.

My mom is going to try to explain to my dad that he gets to keep the printer that he had prior to Friday, but I get to have the one that my mom and I got at Target. My mom and I both needed one that is accessible to us. Though my dad has the printer on a desk that is, literally, right next to my chair, we have to get up, go through the kitchen, and into the old dining room to actually use the printer. It was kind of stupid to put it in such an inaccessible place, but my dad has been really irritating lately.

I’m starting to worry about my vertigo test results. I know that the blood work might have to go to a specific lab, like how some goes to the Mayo Clinic and takes 2 weeks, but the vertigo test was done in the neurologist’s office and should’ve been analyzed that day or (at least) that week.

Okay, I’m going to talk about the message board again. It’s been a while since I’ve had to plug a message board, so I was wondering if anyone had any tips. If you know of some exchanges or listings that I can join to promote it, that would be cool. There are a few things I don’t want to do, i.e. going on someone else’s board and posting an ad. I know that I’ve done that in the past, but it typically can end up causing some sort of issues. (I know that most board owners don’t like it when other boards are posted.)

BTW – Blah Blah Biddy Blah is going to be moving from the .us address to a .com later this week. This is due to .us being way too expensive to renew. Rants and opinions will probably be on a different domain that I have. I’ll announce all this again later.
