STORY TIME:

So, I'm sucker for cute marketing. If you want me to buy your prodict, design some cute mascot and you'll grab my attention. (I mean like old couple or panda "cute", I'm not refering to "I think she's physically attractive "cute", which will also attract my attention, but not what I'm referring to) So anyway, so I'm a sucker for cute things. When I went to Singapore in 2014, at Changi Airport, there were these things in the toilets where you gave the bathrooms a cleanliness rating. Those things were a brand new concept back in those days, but now I've started seeing them in more and more places. Anyway, so there were these things in the toilet which asked you to rate the cleanliness of the bathroom. So, there was a toilet which had a really, really foul odour, and one of the reasons you could give a negative rating was because of the odour, but there was a picture of the janitor holding up a mop in a triumphant manner, and it was so cute. It was so cute that I felt really bad about reporting the stentch, and I can't remember whether or not I could bring myself to do it

I've been kind of sick this past week. I've been having a dull ache on the upper left side of my abdomen. I've also been nauseous, achy, fatigued, and all-around just not feeling good. Today I went to the doctor and had bloodwork and she's ordered an ultrasound.

The reason why I'm sharing this is because I'm kind of scared. I don't know what's going on with me. I've never had anything like this. I mean, it'll probably come back that I've just had a nasty virus (not covid; we've ruled that out since I've not had any respiratory symptoms), but I can't help but feel this overwhelming sense of dread.

I'll let everyone know as I learn more about what's going on.

At least you've been to see a doctor (who can do what no internet person can and diagnose you).

In the meantime, sending sympathy (because it sucks to be sick) and wishes to get well soon. :hug:

I'd make a similar joke, but I'm waiting for surgery and nervous about tempting fate.

Xmara never google your symptoms. A lot of illnesses share symptoms, it takes a doctor to contextualize those things. Thats the difference between brain freeze or rabies.

My gallbladder? Yeah, that’s what my mom suggested. Which wouldn’t be too surprising because she’s had her gallbladder removed, almost all of her siblings have had theirs removed, and her mom had hers removed.

Only thing is, doesn’t gallbladder disease usually affect people over 40? I mean, everyone I know who’s had theirs removed had the surgery after they turned 40.

Guess it could be that then. Mom also suggested it could be my spleen or even appendix.

Idk. I’ll just have to wait until they do the ultrasound. I’m just really nervous because I’ve never dealt with anything like this before.
