which I am not but I think I figured out the reason for my being "off" this past week (besides my dislike of that holiday). It hit me when talking with someone but this Thursday is my yearly urologist appt. Back in 2009 I was diagnosed with a kidney disorder (Medullary Sponge Kidney) that in essence turned my life upside down. It has been this past year that I got serious with the dietary changes that needed to happen and I have seen pretty good results from that. It's the reason I cut out wheat and soy along with other odds and ends. Anyway, I go for my yearly visit to him every year around this time and even though I haven't really had many problems (actually until today- I have not had any at all and I'll find out Thursday if today's had anything to do with it or not since it'll still show up in my *ahem* testing)- anyway, even though I haven't had many problems it still makes me nervous and uneasy around my appointment. Why? I know it can't be changed (although one part of me wants to request another CT scan to see if there's been any changes at all- however, he said he won't request one because of the radiation) but it's just always there- in the back of my mind- just wondering- what is going on inside my body.
