I Wish I Were Normal


Edited To Add: Maybe they meant "normal" as in "fucked up" just like everybody else. Or maybe they meant "I'm as 'normal' as I'm gonna get". Or maybe they were just trying to be nice.

Reminds me of the time I'd been bleeding for 15 days; went to see a jerk of a doctor who was dismissive and said they'd do a pregnancy test. I was incredulous...I'd been bleeding for 15 days!! There was obviously no pregnancy going on...

Yeesh. I'm sorry, Monica.

Monica, what kind of lab work did they do? If you are still having issues, ask for a referral to a hematologist.

Funny timing. About thirty seconds ago I finished an entry that ended with "soon we'll be back to normal, whatever normal is."

Since you are obviously normal I'd love any insight you have to share.

Sorry you've been struggling with ugly and pretty. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference. Hang in there!

Rachel-

They did a THB (?) They checked for an inbalance in my thyroid, hormones and blood sugar levels. I'm glad there is nothing wrong in those areas, but that still doesn't explain my wonky periods.

Thinking of you....Hope you figure this out. I do love your attitude towards it all though. It's very refreshing to see someone so real and raw about what they feel.

I wish they were more comfortable with saying they didn't have an answer. After many "normal" test results, I was told there's nothing wrong with me. Um HELLO it isn't normal to keep having dead babies.
