Since my last journal, I have been out-of-state for visiting family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
And along with the end of the semester, I got very, very sick.
First I had a bad cold my first week visiting- but even before that, during my semester I was experiencing very bad intestinal pains that made my appetite dwindle and me- I wasn't able to use the bathroom properly. I went to my doctor down here and there wasn't really anything found. But when I got to PA, my dad was worried and decided to haul my ass to a specialist.
Turned out I had a 5 cm, hemorragic (blood-filled) cyst on my left ovary. It was pressing against my intestines- which was causing me pain and everything in between. The irony in this, because of all I was doing to figure out what it was- it ruptured the same day they found it- causing even MORE pain.
Don't worry, I'm fine. Once it ruptured, I started healing and slowly feeling better. I still have some residual pains here and there, but so far, so good. I had bloodwork and an ultrasound done- everything checks out otherwise.
I'll be getting back to work soon. I have commissions that I owe.
