Grumble grumble  
I seem to be posting a lot of 'woe is me' entries of late, but seriously, woe is me. After having another few bouts of kidney stones, I finally lost it on Wednesday and went to the doctor because I was concerned about an infection or obstruction, and she was too, as she sent me on to Emergency because kidney infections are no joke. And I sat there for two hours and then had a doctor come in and be like 'go home, we'll do a CAT scan tomorrow, there's probably nothing wrong with you'. Which is rude, but was better than the sitting-in-Emerg-all night scenario that I was envisioning. Anyway, I went home and had the CT scan done the next day, and I assume whatever they found on there is not life-threatening, because my doctor asked to see me for an appointment 'within the month', which is on the 28th. And the kidney stone pain seems to have gone.

Except somewhere in the midst of either passing the stone or perhaps lying on the bed in Emerg, I've strained my back and now am having intermittent back spasms, and between the kidney stones, the abscessed tooth, and the back spasms, 2016 can go fuck itself.

On the bright side, my Mac computer came with a 'magic keyboard' that pairs with my iPad via Bluetooths, so I can continue to write while sitting in a more comfortable chair than my computer one. And I am writing quite a lot because for some reason when I don't feel well, I start to write like crazy. And Mum and I have been working our way through the first season of Poirot on Netflix, which neither of us have seen, and that's a nice distraction.

But on the whole, woe is me.

Oh no, what an awful time. :(

I'm glad the pain has gone down a little, sorry about your back though! :(

Here's hoping that 2016 will start to improve very quickly!

Oh man! I'm so sorry to hear 2016 has so far been lousy. I hope things take an upswing soon.

I'm glad to hear the kidney stones pain didn't upgrade to anything more serious (though I'm sure it wasn't fun).

Yeah, I'm super glad I don't have an obstruction or infection, obviously, but I'll be glad to see my doctor and at least find out if I have more stones to pass or if they're too big to pass or whatever.

Ohhhh, that just sounds like no fun at all. *hugs* Here's hoping you're done with stones for a good long while (like forever) and that 2016 improves SOON.

Oh my great goodness, ma'am, I haven't seen you in ages! *huggles* Thank you for the well-wishes!

Woe are you indeed! I hope your spasms end soon and that you can get rid of the stones way way or another.
