I had a check up at the hospital today, for the endometriosis.
The plus side - everyone at the clinic is fantastic. It's more like visiting friends who also do medical examinations than going for a check up.
The down side - things aren't quite what they should be and the specialist wants me back for a full ultrasound. I have lumps and bumps in strange places. It might just be normal, for me, or they might be new lumps and bumps. They need to be safe and check.
You see, I have what they call a frozen pelvis. All my internal organs are stuck together and stuck to my abdominal walls, etc. Nothing is where it should be, things didn't get stuck together in any nice tidy order. It's a big chunk of lumps and bumps, so trying to look clearly at anything in there? Not easy.
The thing that has me the grumpiest is that this stupid illness, with fibromyalgia slapped on top, leaves me completely drained of energy. I can get up feeling fine and be hit by a wave of tired that feels almost like your drugged. Being home I can hide out on my bed when I get really useless, but I wonder what other people with chrnoc fatifue* symptoms do when they have to hold down jobs or raise children... my mind boggles!
To give you an idea how the tiredness affedts everything I've left my typos in this post. On a good day I make very few typing errors - on a tired day I'm like another language! I even talk backwards. IT's funny, but it also makes you fed up and frustrated when you just want to get to the point... or remengber what the point was.
* that was a typo for chronic fatigue.
