Pitty Party is Over

I finally put my big girl panties on and my pitty party is over. AF does some mean things to a girls hormones! I hate it. I did not want to look at the bummer post anymore!

My hubby and I are watching Monday Night Football. Go Ravens. Not becuase I'm a die hard Ravens fan, but becuase I went to high school with one of their players! It's my home town's only claim to fame.

I'm soo glad football season has come! Whoo hoo!

I need a change...

I need a change. I'm not exactly sure what it is. Maybe its the hormones fromthe start of a new cycle. CD 1 was yesterday. Maybe I'm just bored. I feel antsy. Unease and unrest. I'm not sure why?

It could be I haven't been to mass in forever. It could be that I feel like I live a very BORING life. We have no friends in Jacksonville, maybe that's it. I feel like I'm waiting for my life to start and I hate it. I'm not sure why I just don't start whatever it is I'm waiting for.

I feel like I have no destination. We are not trying to get pregnant right now...maybe I've lost my identity? I asked my husband today "since we're not TTC, should I get on drugs (antidepressants)?" He asked me why. The only reason I could give him is, I guess I need a pick me up? I just feel BLAH and I HATE IT!

I just want more, but I have everything I need. Everything I want? NO. We don't own a house, but we have a roof over our heads. We need to buy a newer car, but the one we have works. I need to learn how to be happy with what I have and my life the way it is...or quit bitching about it and do something.

Any suggestions? Am I the only one who feels this way?

Meme: 10 Surprising Things

I was tagged by Shannon at

1. I love playing video games with my husband. My favorite are the Lego games (Lego Star Wars and Lego Harry Potter). I'm a geek!

2. I used to get tonsilitis ALL THE TIME as a kid. The doctor would never remove them though.

3. I'm getting the Lap-Band. (there will be a whole post on this)

4. My highest cell phone bill ever was $800.00. Yes, that was one month!!

5. I'm opinionated. Very stinkin' opinionated.

6. I sucked two fingers on my right hand until I was 13. My poor mom tried EVERYTHING to get me to stop. She loved it when I was a baby, but hated it when I got older. The only reason I think I ever stopped is because I broke one of them playing softball in the 8th grade.

7. When I was 2, I almost got the toes on my rigth foot cut off by an escalator. I was barefoot at the Tampa International Airport.

8. I love college football...GO GATORS!!

9. My husband and I almost eloped. The only reason we didn't, is because I was the first to get married out of all my sisters. I didn't want to disappointment my parents.

10. My first car was a Ford Fairmont and it was BROWN. The thing was HIDEOUS. My second car was a Mercury Zephyr that looked just like the Fairmont. Apparently, the person who owned the Zephyr before me smoked weed. The second week I had it they had the drug dog at school. He alerted to my car. I was pulled out of class and they called my dad. Thank goodness my dad knew I was a good kid and told the cops we had just got the car!

I'm not going to tag anyone to do this fun little game. I think most people already have been. I think everyone should do it though!

God bless!!

Dang Adrenals *UPDATE*

So I got 1 of the 2 blood test results regarding my adrenals today. We went to the RE today for my husband's results, but I got them to give me copies of results as well. They have not discussed the results with me. I got the Cortisol AM test results and boy am I out of whack!!! This is the test that I took the dexamethazone the night before.

Cortisol AM
.5 (normal 4.0 - 22.0)

WHOA! From what I can figure out with Dr. Google, it points to Addisons Disease. I have an appointment with the RE in a week or two. I am bothered that they didn't call and try to fix this right away. Obviously this is WRONG! Why are they waiting to try to fix it?!?!

My husband still has low testosterone...of course. We were hoping it would normalize. His was 166 (normal 500-1100). Poor guy. They gave him a perscription for HCG and he should be feeling much better soon. Apparently, he can stay on this long term and the doctor believes insurance will pay for it (as long as we don't mention trying to have a baby). So double YAY for that!

Apparently, the Dexamethasone they gave me the night before is supposed to supress the cortisol. After googling the test and the results, my results should have been less than 1.8. The normal ranges on the lab sheet are I can only assume, what should be normal without the Dexamethasone the night before. There is still a problem with my cortisol level being too high. This just crosses off Cushing Syndrome from the list. I am waiting on the ACTH. All this information is coming from me and doctor google. This is why pateints like me should NOT be given test results before they are explained by the doctor! I think I have a PhD...too bad Dr. Google doesn't count!!!
