work over the summer have proved more difficult than I had anticipated as I would need a car for most of the jobs I would like to do and I can''t get a loan until I have an account open for 12 weeks, so that puts a stop on that for the moment. :/

A car would also open up my options of where to live . . . So , maybe I just need to be patient, save money and get ready to take out a loan in 12 weeks' time . . . o figure out a way to earn the money before then! ;)

Lessons learnt: 1. Always keep a local copy as syncing from the cloud is not always entirely reliable. 2. Macs don't let you back up to a hard-drive without wiping the hard-drive. 3. Language accents can cause trouble sometimes.

I live in very religious and homophobic region. Economical situation isn't great either. A lot of people try to disguise their orientation and fit in society with traditional values, even if this 'traditions' include bashing others people orientation

Therefore a lot of verbal aggression and hophobic slurs and jokes. They hope that by imitating straight 'macho' behavior they won't get hurt

It turns out he was a she . . . which makes more sense overall! Still, overall I am not too pleased.i had already started looking for a new place. This has been the nail in the coffin. I don't care that someone stayed over. It's how loud they were

when they got in that bugged me. Full on normal voices, if not louder. There was no sense of 'It's 4am. Someone else is asleep. Let's try not to wake them up.' Or even slightly toning it down. They were full on proper loud.

Thanks all! It feels like a nice way to mark my first year! Like it feels like, 'At least I got that done this year'. You have 3. years to do it but you have to get everything done within one school year. So it's great to have it over and done with!

Test results back. Blood clotting factors - normal. Hormone test LH/FSH (female hormones) showed possibility of PCOS (cysts on ovaries, my sister has it). Will have a pelvic ultrasound to confirm +

calcium test + arthritis tests. Also, I randomly had an asthma attack for the first time in years (I have had wheezing since but never a full blown asthma attack) so I will get inhalers for that too. My vit. D levels were low in first set of tests.

Keeping Track A
02 May 2019 ·

My guess is that that has caused low calcium levels, leading to joint pain, muscle pains and aches, the tingling sensation I got in my hands twice and the easy bruising/broken veins/veins coming up very obviously . . . But let's see what comes out of

the next set of tests. Maybe I have some sort of arthritis too that just wasn't so obvious before that has been exacerbated by low vitamin D levels! As for the bruising, it could be due to my medication perhaps and not due to a lack of calcium.

Keeping Track A

If further tests do not reveal the reason for the bruising etc., I will ask to switch anxiety/depression medication, even though it is working well for me otherwise.

A bit concerned. The doctor's asked me to come in to redo tests. And I did. It's been well over a week and I still haven't gotten the results. I called today and she said she'd ask the nurse to check

Never a good idea to Google health symptoms. Always find the worst-case scenario. Makes me more anxious than not knowing. I hope you're feeling better today!
