I'm having a bad day. Yesterday was mixed. I found out I was selected for the Honors Award for the Division of Social Services at my college, so that was super awesome.

Then I had a crummy experience where a complete stranger ask me about m

Today is Thursday which means it's my day to spend on campus. Two weeks (omg) left in the term. Five exams and one powerpoint left! In the homestretch. One of my friends is presenting a self defense workshop on campus today and I'm looking forward t

Inspired by a previous post...

For those of you who have had plastic surgery - did people actually notice and comment unsolicited? I'm curious about this because my excess skin is pretty well hidden under clothes, aside from my arms since I w

It's Wednesday! Another cold and dreary one here from the looks of it. I picked my choir gown up from the tailor yesterday. I thought it had just needed hemming when I took it in, but he pointed out that it needed taking in at the back as well. So

Do you have any medical issues that would require the RNY? ...

I have nothing exciting to say this morning. It's raining, I'm having kidney stone pain, I'm aggravated. ARGH. But I'm hopeful I'll be productive anyway!

It's Monday again. Three weeks left in the term and six weeks until plastics. w00t. I had a hectic weekend and wasn't able to get as much school work done as I would have liked, so I'll need to be on the ball today to make my midnight deadlines. I

The March for Science yesterday was great and I'm glad I went! It was cold and wet, so we didn't stay as long as intended, but it was still good and getting to spend a day with my mom is always lovely. Today I've got a bunch of school work to do and

Good news! My pain has subsided, I'm Marching for Science today, and my appointment psychiatrist #2 was AWESOME! It was what an appointment should be - she actually asked (and seemed to care about) my history, knew about BED, and prescribes Vyvanse t

Today is attempt #2 to find a psychiatrist - wish me luck! I'm still in the pain I was in yesterday so I opted to sleep through my fitness classes when I went to bed last night. I think that was the right call. Especially because I'm marching for sci

Happy Thursday! I think I forgot to mention this yesterday but I saw my PCP on Tuesday for my Vyvanse follow-up and she was awesome, no mention of weening me off it like she had mentioned before. So I was panicked for nothing I guess! She also asked

Sometimes being an anatomy student isn't great :P Today we were talking about blood and my prof stated that people undergoing surgery should donate their own blood pre-op in case they need a transfusion. I asked for clarification of this after class

I'm in the home stretch for the week. That's how Wednesday works, right? I had intended to come home after school (via a brief grocery trip for dinner supplies) but I think I'll be spending the afternoon in the library instead so I can make some good

Happy Tuesday! My exam yesterday went well, although I have no idea how. I guess I remember more of this stuff than I give myself credit for. I'll take it. Today I've got running, class, and then a med follow-up with my PCP that I'm nervous about.

Happy Monday! I had a super exhausting weekend and didn't get to study at all for my anatomy exam this morning, so I'm posting this really quickly and then getting back to my flashcards. Yikes! I've got two exams and two papers due this week, but on

It's the weekend!! I'm up super early because my bff and I are driving up to New York to see Nail Gaiman speak this evening. We're picking my nephew up en route, since he's spending Spring Break with my mom. Fun and excitement!

Today is a very important anniversary in my life! Two years ago I decided to go back to college. It's crazy to know that 730 days ago, I had no idea I'd be a college student again, but it's true. I woke up in the morning two years ago and thought "m

I've got 52 days until my first surgery. Not that I'm counting or anything. (Actually, there's an app for that.) I pretty much want to spend all day, every day, just reading the posts in this forum. (There are over 8000, I've made it through 200...

Good morning! I can't run this morning because the club that I stupidly agreed to help with has a meeting, but I'm hoping I might be able to run tomorrow since I'm also unable to run this weekend due to travel. We'll see!

Happy Wednesday! I think Spring is finally here. I'll celebrate with an allergy shot ;) I've actually got a pretty light day ahead of me - class in the morning (and no exams!), then a few quick errands and I'll be home for lunch. Granted I eat lunc

Good morning all! It's a gorgeous day here and I'm looking forward to getting out to run - especially since this is the only day this week I'll get to run due to scheduling! (I'm going away for the weekend to see Neil Gaiman speak - so excited!) Tod

It's Monday and I'm sort of prepared for my Anatomy exam. Fingers crossed! The weather is also going to be gorgeous this week which is great. I can't wait. Short skirts all week!

Since I have a ton of free time (LOL, not) I thought it made sense to read through the entirety of the Plastic Surgery Forum. I did this with the VSG forum (when I actually did have free time in my life) and it was hugely beneficial to me.

My plan today is to stay as distracted as possible, so I'm going out to see movies. All the movies! Gifted, Your Name., and Life (again, so my partner can see it). It should be a good day!

An unusual number of people have commented on how "skinny," "tiny," "small," etc. I am recently. The comments come in fits and spurts. There will be weeks/months with no comments and then WHAM, tons of comments.
