I've had the a/c running the past couple days. Waiting for this heat to break. Babu and I are comfortable :)
Well, I don't really want to talk about it, but there's no use avoiding it. So.. yes, it was confirmed I have sleep apnea; something I was in dire denial about. This is the one thing I *didn't* want. It's only moderate, he says (apparently stopped breathing 20 times an HOUR is moderate). He kept asking me if I was diabetic (if he clued in when I told him I was PRH he would understand I'm the opposite of diabetic) and if I've had blood clots (no). I have large tonsils (which I knew about) that factor in a bit. Then he asks, "Has your doctor ever discussed with you metabolic syndrome?" "No."
I feel like I'm going to be dead in 5 years. I've never had so much wrong with me. What's going on?!?! I'm 34 for crying out loud. 34!! Not 84! Hells bells.. that reminds me.. I have to call my gram to get an update on my aunt. Alright, well, I'm too pissed off about this health stuff, so I need to putter around the apartment. I will leave you on a more positive note, though... with pictures! :)
.... is it Friday yet?
A tiger lily, post-rain.
Babu, with his usual unimpressed look. He lays in front of the kitchen sink.. which can make it difficult to do dishes on the best of days.
When I was waiting for the doc in the pulmonologists office yesterday, they had this pamphlet. I can't tell you how many things I find wrong with this. "Pandemic prepared"?!? And we wonder why people freak out; they're already subconsciously tense because of bullshit propaganda like this! Gah! (And yes, that is the coffee mug I use every morning and yes it's Winnie the Pooh - don't judge :) ).
A little mini path I take on my walk home (this was last night). The park is freshly cut, crop circles around the trees and that fresh cut grass smell... mmm. If there's ever a scent of summer, that would definitely be one of them.
In a few days, this will be covered with tiger lilies. I'll try my best to capture them.
