Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Rinne--I have ovarian cysts that either don't go away, or keep reoccuring. I just had another ultrasound a month or so ago, and they're still there--but the doctor assured me that they are "clear" and they don't turn cancerous. She was not worried at all. I never really ate much soy--probably some in my normal diet, but I didn't go out of my way to eat it.

Actually, I have the ultrasounds to monitor a large fibroid that I have. The doctor wants me to have another one in 6 months, and if it's any larger, I'll have to have something done because it already causes pain, and could begin to press on other organs. That's how they found the cysts.

This makes me wonder if I have ovarian cysts too. They did an ultrasound but only from the waist up, that's how they saw the one in the kidney. I've had so much pain for the past three years and some of it connected to car accidents so it has been difficult to sort out what pain goes with what condition. :lol:

How is that wine tasting? I hope it is all good. I drank an ounce of potato vodka last week and had no reaction to it other than happy to have a vodka on the rocks. :) I probably won't do it again for a while though. I am feeling so much better that I know I have to be careful cause better is precarious.

O.K. so I am an idiot, fibroid is different than cyst? I've been thinking it is a fibroid cyst.

This has to be a record for the most pages in one day on this thread. :lol::lol:

I'm sorry I missed all the fun :D It sounds like you guys had some kind of party. I know Celia had some wine, but what did everyone else have, sweet potatoes? :lol:

.....and I missed saying good luck Rachel with your appointment tomorrow, I am anxious to hear all about it.

Haha....that guy I've been hanging out with just sent me a text saying I should give him the name of this site that I'm always on. :huh:

Ummm....I'm thinking that would be a really bad idea....all my past posts would come back to haunt me. :ph34r:

My reply was...Never!!

This is an all girls slumber party. ;)

:lol::lol:

Yeah....that cracks me up everytime!!

Rachel,

Just tell Scott you need this thread passcoded and anyone new that wants to read can email you...that may not work though, you probably wouldn't know it was him. It's great that he want to learn more though. :P

OMG...I would die if anyone I knew read half this stuff!!

:lol::lol:

Lets see I've talked about all my exes, my bowel movements, my ovaries, even the color of my urine!! :ph34r:

I would definately hide out for a very long time. :lol::lol:

Uuummmm, how do you know no one you know is on his site? :lol:

Jeebus Cripes! I was gone for what, 2 hours and y'all add 4 pages?!?!?!

I can't keep up :rolleyes:

I'm with ya Chelsea. I decided I'd better pay bills since they were supposed to be paid yesterday, plus I ate dinner before that and had to give hubby some of his computer time :huh: and I was four pages behind also. :blink:

It's Floridian's fault, she's laughing too much. :lol::lol:

You guys are cracking me up tonight.

Oh yeah....and I talked about him on here too. :ph34r:

Uh oh, you better hide Rachel...who says he won't find this site. :ph34r:

Hope not. :o

Oh .... one symptom so far.... I got the munchies... digging in a bad of potato chips :D

I thought potatoes bothered you. :o:blink:

The next doctor I saw was a surgeon who is determined to take out the fibroid cyst I have in one of my breasts. In the midst of the Celiac crisis this winter I discovered the lump and had a month or so of wondering if I had breast cancer but I don't. :P They all thought I did though, I kept hearing the, well you are 51 and it is an irregular mass, worried looks and such. I have a CT scan scheduled this week too because I have a cyst or something in one of my kidneys. :( I am really wondering if there is a connection between all the soy I consumed in my twenties and estrogen and these cysts. Has anybody else suddenly been "cysted"?

Keep us posted please. I ate a lot of soy for the last 3 years and a moderate amout the 5 years before that. I haven't had any problems YET that I know of, except soy intolerance and allergic.

Yeah Andrea....I'm worried. :o

He's no dummy. Ya know what I did. I tried my own search....all I typed in was "gluten" and "Rachel" and the first hit was my profile on this site...the second hit was this site! :o

Thats a little too easy...I started thinking anyone could be reading this....ummm DUH!! :ph34r:

He was wanting to know the site address or my screenname at least. I told him this is our own private space...noone we know can view these pages. ;)

He said "Oh I see....a "secret society".

Yup....exactly. :D

now goign to open the bag of potato chips.....me, not so much in potato chip denial.... :ph34r:

LOL Susan :lol:

Sorry you missed the party...I wonder how Floridian is feeling this morning? :P

Hey one male brave enough to venture into this fray. Sorry your girl talk does not scare me off, I have five sisters, nine nieces, and only two nephews and a son. My dad and I are so out numbered! :P

In any event, Mango, enjoy living in Oz. Getting out of US for a couple years was the best thing I did when I was younger.

I wouldn't want to presume and speak for everyone but for a man with a sense of humor and so many female relatives I might be willing to make an exception, a co-ed slumber party. :lol:

Actually friends and I started that a number of years ago, we all had farms and lived hours away from each other so when we did get together we spent the night. We still do and the breakfasts are often the best fun.

Oh forgot to add, I have coached women's rugby for a number years both at the college level and women's club level. Thanks for inviting me in. I will say my sisters are nuts. but then again ... so am I. some of things they talk about make my dad and I blush at times. Funny when you think of, men blushing!

I am all for spending the night after a few drinks. When we have company, we sort of recommend it.

Hi Picard!!!

I was thinking about something someone said on here... (don't even ask me who and where :lol: ) but they were saying that women think in an "all around, all inclusive" way... where men are more specific... that was a very good analysis... men think like doctors, real specific and don't look at the whole picture...

This of course doesn't include you Picard... your one of our sleep over buddies!!! :D

I agree men do think in specifics, I admit that I do with somethings.

I only WISH that eating chips was the worst thing I did while drinking..... :blink:

Welcome Picard. Will we see you back. I feel sorry for you and your Dad. :P There were only two in my family me and my brother. My husband has 5 boys from a previous marriage and two boys from our marriage (also have a daughter). I was quite outnumbered before I had my kids. Now it's just the five of us. :)

Mango, I agree with Floridian...you're really brave!! I'm the type that wouldnt ever think of going to see a movie by myself or going to eat by myself....let alone going to a whole other country by myself. :blink:

No way...I'm chicken. :ph34r:

But... I can go shopping by myself....I'm really good at that!! :D

Hehe I think I must be crazy! I don't know anyone over there and I don't yet have a job or a place to live, but I'm REALLY excited about it! (and a little bit nervous, but excited too) :lol: I don't know how hard it is to get a job at a health food store over there but I'm thinking I might aim for something like that, so at least I'll be surrounded by safe food most of the time :D

Hi Mango! That is so cool you are going to Australia. Will you still be able to access the board from your travels? I hope so, maybe you can post pictures of your adventures??

I'll totally still join in every so often. That's the great thing about this place. You can crash the party from anywhere in the world. :)

Pickard - Welcome :) Where'd you go when you left the country for a couple years? I need to come up with some ideas of where I want to go when my OZ visa expires LOL.

Oh and Rachel - if that guy actually bothers to read this 110 page book, at least you know he's really interested. LOL, or maybe he just has way too much time on his hands :lol:

I do sometimes wonder if people I know are secretly reading my posts. I mean, just think of all the people who lurk and don't post. For all I know, any of my coworkers could know all sorts of random facts about me, that I don't really want them to know :lol:

Must say I am glad not to be drinking any more....don't have any piercings, just many emotional scars from ridiculous men that I mistakenly chose...... :huh:

OH yeah, have wondered about this as I have discussed openly my myriad issues...... :ph34r: Only no one knows what my board name is.....

Um, yeah, about the 110 pages, can we get the Cliff Notes somewhere? :P
