This is mostly for the benifit of my dear, beloved sister ship2shore
Remeber how I was complaining about the food in the cafetria making me sick? Well, I had another incident on Thursday, after eating chicken dumplings. (but the kit-kat bar probably didn't help matters either, in retrospect)
So I popped into the nurses office durring lunch to get some tums. This ussualy makes the pain go away, but it didn't. I made it though physics, with a litte difficulty, but in Spanish, the last class of the day, it got worse. So I went into the bathroom and curled up into a little ball because that, for some God forsaken reason, helps.
I finaly ask to go to the nurse, with five minutes left until 3, and ask the nurse to let me go home, but by the time I find the number to call Mom at work, school's over. And I decied to call Mom at work because I definitaly wasn't going to walk home like that, nor was I going to stay at school until play rehersal was over and Dad was going to pick me up. Except Mom was home the whole time!
Anyway, since I've been popping into the nurse's office fairly regularly for the last couple of weeks, she tells me to go see a doctor. I tell Mom this and she scheduals an appoinment for that day.
So after we go to the doctors, and I spend forever in the room waiting for the doctor to show up, I see him for five minutes, tell him my symptoms (stabing pain in my abdoman after I eat at school) he tell's me it's propbably my gall bladder. I should reduce my intake of fats, and to take generic OTC Zantac for two weeks, and they'll see how I'm doing in two weeks, and if there's no improvement that they'll schedual an ultrasound to see what's the what.
And since I'm a curious little monkey, I was looking up gall bladers and sour stomach (sour stomach is one of the things that Zantac is supposed to treat) and I found out what a gall bladder is (a storage place for bile, which digests fats) and that one of risk factors for gall stones is a family history of gall stones, and high cholorestal food.
And since Mom, Mama, and Mother all had their gall bladder removed, I defintaly have a family history of it. And since frech fries is a food group for the school, I'm not surpriesd that this is happening now. Plus fried chicken has always done a number on my system.
But I am a little bitter that McDonalds makes me ill, and it's never made me ill before, and this is with
my Zantac. Yes, I'm aware that's my own damm fault, but... McDonald french fries! I won't make that mistake again, though.
But there is good news: I FINALY SENT IN AN APPLICATION! It's to IU-Bloomington, major in Infomatics.
