I saw a cardiologist. They're going to do a stress test and check my blood again. To paraphrase what he said, it's most likely because I'm stressed the fuck out, eat like shit, and am a fat fuck but they're going to check anyway (probably because I have insurance and have pretty much hit the deductible at this point).


Update: my heart is okay. After meeting with a Pulminologist, they did further testing and it looks like I have undiagnosed allergies that are causing moderate to severe asthma. I already knew I had a whole bunch of environmental allergies like every tree and grass and some molds as well as some animals. But apparently I have a number of food allergies such as wheat, shellfish, tomato, apple, chicken and whole bunch of other various vegetables, fruits, dyes, etc., that I had no clue about (except shellfish).

So I get to be that annoying guy that can order one thing when he goes out to eat a restaurant that has to customize the fuck out of it.

I have a couple more things to finish up and get the full breakdown soon. My guess is I have to avoid all this stuff, get allergy shots, and probably switched up on some medications and hopefully I can start to feel better in a few months.

How do they go about diagnosing the food allergies?

And how poor is your diet? You booze at all?

Skin test and then blood test.

Diet is not that great. But basically half the stuff she rattled off on the phone I eat every day.

I have a couple of drinks a week. I stopped pretty much because I feel like crap after a couple I guess this explains why.

Glad you're doing well. Or at least have a positive prognosis. I did the same thing last summer, without the allergy test. Just said to unwind. I very much lied about my alcohol, but in with you, the hangovers aren't worth it anymore.

Ok, this is gross. Stop reading if you want.

About a week or so ago, I had what I thought was a pimple on my abdomen, a couple inches below my waist. It then became raised, there was a ton of fluid under it and became red in the area. I was at work Sunday and it was extremely painful.

I googled and decided it was an in grown hair and there was a likely infection. I put warm conpresses on it, because that should do the trick.

At work yesterday, it was bleeding to the extent that it bled through my boxers to my dress shirt. I decided this was not good and went to urgent care.

My diagnosis was correct, but it was so far along then needed to cut into it, excise it and drain it. Essentially lancing a boil. It may have been the most painful experience in my life. They packed it an I have to pull out a string on Wednesday night. I am not looking forward to that.

If anyone gets one of these, do not wait.

Pulling out a string sounds like a tampon, to me.

So I was sickish all weekend and thought I was just fighting off a bug. Headache, ringing ears, super tired. Woke up on Sunday with a really bloodshot eye. Figured that I had just scratched the hell out of it whilst asleep in the middle of the night.

The bloodshot part of my eye has cleared up a bit, but its now tracing around the edge of my pupil and is getting larger. Its also more irritated.

We've got a new set of sheets on our bed. They are white with gold pineapples on them. It looks like sweat from sleeping has turned the gold pineapples from my pillowcase into a weird green purple color. Hoping that the eye thing and everything else that I've been feeling are unrelated, and not that some fake fancy sheets from a sketchy textile factory overseas with no quality control standards is poisoning me through my pupils while I sleep.

I'm literally keeping an eye on this.

The white's uncle had a stomach flu on Christmas day. He was eating chili (bold move, stomach flu-haver), and started to vomit. He puked so hard he tore his esophagus. Ended up in the ICU, sepsis in his chest cavity, they had to vacuum chili out of everywhere. Got put in an induced coma, sepsis got bad, priest came in and gave him last rites. Today he turned it around enough for them to do surgery to repair his esophagus, now has an 80% survival prognosis after at one point being 6 hrs from pulled plug.

The bad luck tornado is never far, is what I'm saying. Fuckin whew.

That got out of hand fast. I'm impressed that whole cycle took around 24 hours.

Yeah, yesterday everyone's crying at Christmas dinner and telling Uncle Frank stories (don't have chili this week just to be sure, Frank) and today the doctors go "sike"
