Tapering Down

I have finally, finally started to taper down on the Provera, which has a fun side effect brain fog–in addition to the brain fog from not getting enough oxygen. And the bleeding? With the Mirena and switch back to Eliquis, and the extra progesterone from the Provera–it has stopped completely. Hallelujah! I’m finally starting to think more clearly, but it’s a slow process and I’m trying not to overtax myself....

A Quick (and Very Tired) Update

God. I am so tired. I was finally re-prescribed Eliquis last week and it was like turning off a faucet–within 12 hours of the first pill, I swear to God. One which is still kind of leaky. But the leaking is slowing down a lot (like a lot a lot) so I’m going to start tapering down on the progesterone tomorrow. I’m just exhausted. I am still anemic–my hemoglobin was at 11 just before my appointment for my final Injectafer infusion....

It's Been a Week

My biopsy on Tuesday went surprisingly well. I took an Ativan and a Percocet beforehand (yes, I know you’re not supposed to take both at once, but as we’ll discuss later, the Ativan dose was not very large) and had a very good conversation with the doctor about the potential forks in my path depending on the outcome of the biopsy: Benign: replace the Liletta IUD with a Mirena IUD; I would like a D&C but the doctor feels like that’s an unnecessary surgery but then again she’s not the one who’s been bleeding for a month, either....

Coding, Work, and Random Updates

Me: Oh, let me change the theme, it won’t that big of a deal. time passes Me: Six hours isn’t bad, right? So, yes: I did change a few colors. And the font, and the entire theme. And I made a colophon page and managed to actually code it in properly. Which is pretty exciting, not gonna lie. Anyhow. I’m sure some things look funky and I didn’t notice....

Messing Around

So here I am, in the wee hours of the morning, having frittered away the last 7 hours of my life on a few “quick” updates to the site. Except I kept thinking of new ways to do things or fixing errors with the style sheets to the point where, except for the general layout and the little cactus icon up there (which is going to be replaced soon, I swear), it’s basically a whole new theme....

Trying to Post Images

I’m trying to figure out how to manage images; I don’t really want to do page bundles…but I guess I am for now. Meh. Annnnd, of course, I can’t get any of the theme’s built-in image shortcodes to actually respect my settings–do I want my images linked? No, no I do not. And why the FUCK is it not rendering the CSS that at least hides my link formatting? I have it in the right order, it’s just straight-up ignoring me....
