    I went searching, found the article below, and sent it to my daughter as she went to the doctor today because of chest pain. Diagnosis-- costochrondritis. Probably due to coughing from a virus she's had for a couple of weeks:

    I know another soldier who had it years ago, and that's how he described it. I was sick for basically a solid year maybe more after I "got over" whatever the hell I had. I've only recently gotten back to my previous levels of immunity after almost two years of primal, which is about as long as the other guy said it took him to not get sick every time someone else does.

    I was diagnosed with "it could be mono" in college by the quack shack. My immune system has been nowhere near as good as it once was since then. When I had "it could be mono," I had NO energy, to the point that getting up and going to the bathroom down the hall felt like I had run a double marathon with two people strapped to my back. Every single part of me hurt. Light was the devil's creation. If I sat up, the room spun. I almost failed that semester because class was out of the question for a good week. When I first went back after it, I nearly passed out in the bathroom after making it out of the lecture hall.
    Whatever it is Hulky has, I hope he gets better soon.
    Along that same note, take care of you before him. You can't help him if you've worried yourself into a corner or a sickbed. You can't enjoy your honeymoon if you're sick from worrying over him.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Haha yes >< I am doing my best. Better best now than I was before. I had a good mental kick in the pants today, but in a very loving and kind way. That seems to work better for me than when I berate myself, since that's kind of an every day occurrence.

    I accomplished all my evening tasks (including mango soft serve mmmm) except for lunch prep, but I realized I have pre-cooked rice & torn pork that I can put together. Yay. I wonder if any bananas will be ready tomorrow.

    One episode of Farscape then bed!

    Man, season 2 of Farscape is not very good so far . I finished Dexter yesterday and now I know why everyone says the ending sucked. Really, I would have been okay with it if they'd taken out or changed the last minute.

    My NOW probiotic with SBO's arrived yesterday. I'm finishing the Threelac with my breakfast of bananas & lunch today (torn pork & rice). I plan on taking the new probiotic twice a day, with meals. If that doesn't seem to do much, I'll try between meals.

    Cascara Sagrada - My detour to ice cream land this week threw off my experiment, but overall, this stuff has been very gentle & working well for me. I have a BM at least once a day, sometimes twice. I've been taking a capsule in the AM and right before bed (with a full glass of water), each one has about 450 mg. I'm hoping I can continue taking it for a while so I can have a dependable supplement for gut motility, while I figure out the trigger foods for my constipation. The saline laxatives (Vit C, mag citrate) don't work consistently for me anymore.

    I'm going to get my hair trimmed before the honeymoon, probably in week since I took the day of our departure off from work. I'll run around all day, anxious and excited, getting things together, and then hopefully sleep on the plane.

    I don't know what to do with this messssss. I guess just get the back trimmed.

    I think Hulky may have said what he said, how he said it, b/c he's frustrated over his own health concerns and didn't have the patience for yours as a result... but definitely something to discuss at therapy today. He may not have realized how brash it sounded.

    And I second the recommendation to tell the clinic you'll pay whatever you can each month. A lot of clinics will only charge a percentage of the bill over a period of months. The University here requires a payment of 25% per month for balances below $100, 15% for balances over $100 but below $500 or something. Or they'll split it evenly over a period of months. When Makenna had all the urology tests our portion of the bill (after co-payment and insurance) was $71 a month for 3 months, but with her pulmonology care, we paid $25 a month for about 6 months (same hospital). Just be certain to tell them if their payment suggestions don't work for you. They've usually got more than one option to work with. We've even done a weekly payment plan (b/c one of us gets paid each week, so it worked for us and made for a less difficult payment plan).

    yes, remember when people aren't feeling well - they tend to be not very sympathetic, and sometimes not very nice.

    My doctor's office is now owned by Mt Auburn Hospital, a major hospital in this area (where I was born, too), so all the billing goes through there. It appears that they are more prompt about billing than the facility itself was, so that's good. My bill was for an appointment on Feb 3. Usually I have to wait over a month to get a bill after it has gone to insurance. The bill is for $150 after insurance, from getting my hormones tested. Someday, I will learn to ask about costs before demanding these things! I didn't think it would be such a costly test. I called up the hospital billing dept and they have a minimum of $25/mo, so that's what I'm doing until I can spare the money to pay off the rest of the balance. With any luck, we'll have enough spare cash this month from the honeymoon. I'm using PTO for it, so I'll still be getting full paychecks.
