okay let me begin by saying i am not writing to get folks to write awwwww or whathaveyou (thank you for thinking of it if you are)
basically just writing this stuff to keep y'all informed and all that.
thyroid info... remember how i went to the lab on saturday to get my prolactin and tsh levels taken? well my doctor called and let me know that all is fine and dandy with my crazy thyroid. nothing out of the ordinary.
i am just fat without that excuse.
sooooooo... i asked him to prescribe me Meridia (i was on it after i dated Fatty Pack 7 years ago and i lost about 30 or so pounds on it - without exercising)
so i will be starting that tomorrow.
now on to a little darker news. not dark, so much as not crazy great.
i went to the dermatologist today and had a skin cancer check.
so... after going to the beach for 36 years and tanning salons for 20 years and having a convertible... well....
i've got to get 5 moles removed and biopsied (which i thought were freckles - they aren't "uncle buck here's a quarter to get a rat to gnaw that thing off" type of moles.)
so, i have to go to a surgeon (have to call tomorrow for an appointment) and get that done between now and september 12 when i go back to the dermatologist.
it's just a biopsy (i've got one sort of near my belly - am going to ask him for a tummy tuck while he's down there) because she thought they looked atypical doesn't meant that it's cancer. but, hey, if it is, then i'll deal with it.
no crazy things on my face, so that's good *whew* --- just one on my right side of my belly, another on the left near my bikini line (ironic, since i don't wear bikinis) and another near the right bikini line, then one on the back of my right thigh and, eh, one on my left butt cheek
so, i'll get these puppies removed and see what's what.
if it's the C thing, i'll cross that bridge when I come to it. but for right now, I'll just say goodbye to some wackyarsed freckles...
that said DO NOT paint "save gigglechick's freckles" on watertowers. no sympathy here.
consider this a PSA and I am doing my best Taylor Hicks impersonation and screaming "get yo'self a MOLE PATROL!"
So, I've been forced to the sidelines of the sun with Neutrogena SPF 55 with Heliotrope --- which, basically when you slather it on, the heliotrope stuff congeals and creates an umbrella that pops out of your skin. it's nice.
