Something pathetic wiggled its way into my soul and made camp. I refuse to let it stay. I refuse to live my life this way. I keep saying, "something has to change," but that's bullshit. *I* am what needs to change.

I'm stressed out about the Endocrinologist appointment on Tuesday. My mind wanders down a hundred dark paths, making up as many twisted things they could do to me, supposedly "in my best interest." I worry about the things they'll make me consent to, making me feel like I've brought the torture upon myself willingly. Every second that ticks by brings on a new horrid image. I am afraid.

It's hard to tell if it's good news or bad news, but apparently I have a problem with my Thyroid. The doctor said the anxiety may be caused by my hypothyriodism. In essence, my Thyroid is barely working at all. On one hand, yay for finally finding an answer! On the other hand, I'm not looking forward to my trip to the Endocrinologist on Tuesday at 1:30pm.

I have some strange anxiety issue that no one seems to be able to fix. The Psychiatrist has tried a few different medications, and nothing seems to help. The Psychiatry department referred me back to my regular doctor to see if there was some medical cause for my constant racing heart, hyperventilating, trembling, nausea, etc.
I had an EKG yesterday. I should know in the next few days if there's a problem with my heart. Today, I had 5-6 vials of blood drawn and a urine analysis done. The UA came back normal, and I should know about the blood tests in the next couple of days, as well.
The Psychiatrist also has me going to "Anxiety Management" classes on Wednesday afternoons. I guess it's a mind-over-matter approach to a chemical problem, but maybe it will work.
Something has to work. Gods please, something has to work.

David and I are getting geared up and ready to go to the 14th Annual Association of Professional Piercer's conference in wonderful Las Vegas, NV. We both feel pretty passionately about modifications as well as learning, so we're excited about going. I went last year and had a blast. I'm sure our days won't be limited to class, though. David hasn't seen much of Vegas and I intend on changing that!
The Southern California BME BBQ in San Diego, California is going to be on Saturday, August 8, 2009. We'll be working on buttons (and t-shirts maybe!) over the next few weeks. We really need to get passed APP first.
