        • Back is better thanks to heavy doses of cortisone and some rest . Now I have a cold (like everybody around me!), but I'm kicking it's ass with bone broth and fermented skate liver oil.

          Yesterday I went for a nice walk in the wood with DH, that hadn't happened for too long! We're planning on making this a weekly thing again .

          I'm at school, just finished a writing assessment. I think spelling is fine, but wasn't able to make it long enough (we had to write a letter approx. 500 words long, I think I have about half of that :/ ). Well, let's just hope I passed. Tomorrow I have a swim assessment. That's going to be interesting . Bought a new swimming suite last week, because all my old ones were too big .

          Ah, finished the whole 30 yesterday! I wanted a treat after lunch, so thought about a small piece of chocolate. Then I noticed the tub of sour cream. Yeah, who wants chocolate if you can have sour cream . Weighed myself yesterday morning, I lost 1.7 kg last month. Not bad at all.

          Ok, back to class now!

            • It's my birthday on Sunday. In class I said I turn 18 with 25 years of experience .
              Got money from my parents and in-laws, so I just ordered a Jawbone up. Sad there aren't any of the fancier colours available here in belgium , so I went with the onyx one, that'll look good with whatever clothes I wear .

                • Oh hi Coll, thanks for "calling" me . Yeah, I've been super busy with school stuff, but it's going great! I have passed all the assessments I've done so far (even with good grades), so I'm happy. Unfortunately I'm having a little problem at the moment and have been home on sick leave the past week, and will be home the next 2 weeks too . I'll have a lot of work to catch up .
                  I've been in pain for the past few weeks, it started with something that felt like a bladder infection, but moved really quickly to my kidneys. Wow, never new that kidneys could hurt so much! My doctor put me on antibiotics, but after a week I didn't feel the slightest bit better. So they took a sample and put me on penicillin, but the sample came back negative for bladder infection and the penicillin didn't make it any better either. My kidneys were still "killing" me, so my doc was worried (and so was I), she ordered x-rays and an ultrasound of my belly; she rang the hospital herself and I could go in to have them done the same day. On the ultrasound they found "something" in my lower abdomen, so she arranged for me to go to the gynecologist the next day: he found a cyst the size of a goose egg on my right ovary. The pain in my kidneys is probably caused by this cyst pressing on my right kidney.
                  I'm going to the hospital tomorrow, for surgery to have the cyst removed. And the gynecologist said I'll have to be on the pill for a year, because it's caused by my menstruation "bleeding" upwards towards the ovary, so I shouldn't be menstruating for a year. This should solve the underlying problem. I am NOT amused! I was so happy to be off hormonal anti-conception, as it really messes with my sex drive (as in: non-existing) and I'm not looking forward to turning into the Ice Queen again!!! But well, it's only for one year, I guess :/ .

                  You know what worries me most about going into the hospital? The food! Hahaha, really! So I made a banana bread that I'll be taking with me so that I'll have at least something paleo-friendly to eat! I also prepared some hard-boiled eggs for a healthy snack. I know what food looks like in hospital and I'm NOT looking forward to eating that crap! I'll bring my own food, thank you. Luckily there's a fridge in every room in the hospital, so that's not a problem. And I only have to stay one night.

                  I'll try to pop in once in a while to keep you updated .

                    • Hey candy! Saw the pic on Instagram of the room & wondered what was going on. I couldn't translate what was said! lol. I'm sorry to hear about the cyst but glad they will be able to remove it & you will only be there one night. Will be thinking good thoughts for you!!
                      Take care of yourself!!

                      • Hey girls, nice to 'read' you. I'm fine and will be heading home right after noon . They found not only the cyst but also quite some scarring from endometriosis apparently, I never knew I had that! I'm going to make an appointment with a paleo-minded therapist to have my hormones sorted out, I did feel something was 'out of whack' and had already planned to do so.

                        • And I'm happy to report I'm back home! The situation was a bit worse than the surgeon firts thought, apparently I had some severe endometriosis on the outside of my uterus and even on my bowels, and on top this cyst the size of a goose egg. They have removed all this tissue and now I need to get hormonal treatment (like the pill) in order for it not to re-occur :/ . I am not looking forward to going back to the pill, as it turns me in the Ice Queen! But it should be only for one year. I'm feeling ok and I'm happy that I didn't have to eat the hospital foor, so yucky!!! I've posted picks in the 'Funny CW Moments' thread!

                            • So glad you are home and that you are on the road to recovery! Hopefully you can find someone to help you with those pesky hormones! Maybe there is some more natural treatment that won't have you being the Ice Queen for a year Take it easy and I hope your recovery is uneventful and quick!

                              • OMG! I looked at your hospital food - enough to make one feel really sick really fast! Your banana bread looked so yummy especially with all that lovely butter slathered on
