pigtails

You know how it's never lupus?

Well, apparently it might be.

Last night my doctor called. When they call you instead of texting, it's kind of a headsup that things are not going to be straightforward, right? So I was braced for what she told me, which is apparently that both my antinuclear antibody and rheumatoid factor (antibodies for rheumatoid arthritis) are positive, and that she's going to refer me to a rheumatologist.

Meanwhile, I'll keep taking the voltaren because I'm liking being able to sleep through till 5am, and being able to put my undies on without lying on the floor. The doc also advised to keep up the visits with OsteoDude on the off chance that the back thing is just coincidental. Basically she said if it helps, keep doing it. It's too early to tell right now but in a couple of weeks I'll try another day without voltaren and see what happens, and then I'll know. And since none of this stuff is slowing me down much, until I see this specialist and get a proper diagnosis, it's business as usual.

In other news, I dreamed last night that I was in DA: Inquisition. I was controlling an army against the Orlesian invasion of Ferelden, and I had a dragon. I was basically having orgasms over how beautifully rendered the dragon was, and confused about how the Fereldans had discovered oil and were powering ships that looked like the Titanic, along with generators that ran lighting. Anyway, I sent my dragon off to deal with the Orlesians, and then we had nothing to do so we sat around in Varric's house and laughed about the silly things that are written on tampon packets.

I really hope the game is not actually like that. Apart from the dragons.
