day 2281 – general practitioner

my family doctor never seems to fail at disappointing me. i went into her office for one reason – to get either an xray or mri referral. i didn’t get either of the said referrals. instead, i got a prescribed topical cream. this blows my mind that one needs to go through medical school to be able to tell me topical cream will be the best relief she can provide. remind me to never go to her unless i want to get disappointed

day 2279 – foot issue

everything seemed fine during training and i even landed my handspring on floor midway through. two hours after the fact, my foot started having shooting pain. i’m beyond puzzled why my foot is in so much pain that i ended up at the emergency. the area below my ankle had a big hard bump that i described as bone-like. i went through the standard protocol and took xrays, left the hospital with the doctor diagnosing it as an achilles tendonitis. i had a chiro and physio take a look and both think it’s much more than that. i could no longer weight bear and had to resort to crutches to get around

day 2086 – ganglion

a growing lump in my right elbow forced me to make a trip into my family doctor’s office. the bump expanded so much, into something i believe to be a tumor. it bothers me so much, i would be in much pain every time i rest my elbow on something. i consistently press on it thinking it would flatten out, but so far that doesn’t seem like it’s working. my doctor referred me for an ultrasound and also got me an xray referral for my ankle. we’ll figure out what it is first, but she doesn’t suggest i trade in the cyst for a scar
