Just an update for those who care...

Posted 05-23-2014 08:31 PM by k742

So, for those keeping track of my medical saga...here's an update. Chiropractor has been helping with my back and hip pain; Wednesday I go in for my evaluation.

Yesterday we finally got to meet with the NaPro doc - that was pretty great, actually. He took a thorough history of what's been going on, did a quick pelvic exam to make sure nothing obvious was going on...based on my issues he thinks it could be progesterone deficiency, PCOS, endometriosis, or any combination of those things....

Anemia – What I’m Learning, Part 1 (May 22, 2013)

March is American Red Cross Month. With the nonprofit celebrating over 130 years of saving lives, there’s no better time to ask yourself this very important question: Do you know first aid?

First aid is one of the most important skills that you will ever learn. When someone is sick or injured, professional medical help is not always available right away. Even after you dial 911, you may have to wait 10 minutes or more before the ambulance arrives.

Sick of bleeding all the time :|

Posted 06-22-2011 04:50 AM by KJBear

[B]As I am sick of bleeding all the time almost every week right about now.
I am going to see a doctor and see if they can help me.
I am a little concerned on going on a new pill.
As I've never had trouble with this one until now, but I have been on it for a few years. And it is normal for some pills to not be as effective as they once were as it may not be strong enough for me anymore. Which is fun, as I never really wanted to go on one. I was 16 and heard a lot...
