@Tileenah Since I'm American it's a bit more difficult than that unfortunately. Buuuut, we have a plan. So, Tilee, @BetaCorvi and @Montserrat, your hugs may have made the doctors get back to me lol.

So the plan - This week was supposed to be a placebo week for my pill. So I'm gonna not take the pills for the rest of the week and see what happens. They admitted, presumably because I complained enough (my superpower), that yeah maybe this isn't working out. They did offer to push my meeting in June with my primary, but I want to see how not taking the normie pills for a few days works and then go from there. From those experiences, we'll figure something out.

Also I haven't asked for the time off yet oops lol

So that's the plan. It's a short term one. But it is a plan.

697 - Leg day 25 + calf raises.

87 - Ten minutes!

Good thing - Vapor95 had a sale today. Managed to snag some mystery pins. They take a hot minute to send out tho so... We'll see what I get! Also, I got some shorts from then to work out in. Yay!

Cooper status - He went to the groomers and was the GOODEST BOY!!!

@Tileenah Ahaha it's alright, I just have an above-zero amount of friends outside of the US who meme on me (playfully) about how awful healthcare can be. So basically we have a lot of very good, well-trained doctors. It's just... Money. Going to different doctors can rack up cash really quickly even if you have insurance, a visit depending on the timing/etc can be a Hell of a lot more than some shorts depending on the time period (like if I go in for something other than a yearly physical). And that's even if the place you are going to accepts your insurance.

698 - Leg day 26 + 100 calf raises and I am losing my mind because STILL PERIODING but it's okay. It's okay. I hope it ends by Friday. It's supposed to be so nice.

88 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - I had this microwavable butter chicken thing for lunch at work and I have ascended into pure bliss.

Cooper status - Just a fluffy guy. A good boy. He loves you.

Ouch :eyes:
Considering how researchers have demonstrated that money issues and workload can be a worsening factor in a lot pain related issues, that is bad... The people that need the most help won't be able to get it.
The system in France is not taking a good turn though because they simply don't train enough health practitioners. And they don't pay enough the nurses at all. So in some areas you have to wait for more than 3 months to get to see a GP for 15 minutes... The government's solution is to forbid people to set up their practice where there are too many health practitioners, but it doesn't really work as there are not enough doctors and physios and such... It's just :mad:
And the nurses, they quit their jobs because it's hard, not well paid, tiring and emotionally draining... So they close hospital beds and are happy because they made economies. It does not make enough money to care for people who are really sick you see... :break:
The worst is to think we used to have a very good health care system but that's all in the past now.

@Tileenah Ouch, so you guys are going for-profit like the US it seems? Jesus Christ, the nursing situation sounds VERY similar to us. A very above-zero amount of nurses in the US have bailed due to how horrible things have been, even before Covid. Covid was a nail in the coffin. There are for sure people in the US who would love to go into the medical field but the problem is that nursing school can be so expensive, too... The idea that so much potential is locked behind a paywall is so awful.

699 - Leg day 27 + 100 calf raises + 30 high crunches and some walking!

89 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - Okay so, it was a nice day out, so I went to the Asian market in town to get some nice stuff for myself and the family. I lamented at the counter that I was too late for rice balls, but then, the absolute GIGACHAD AT THE REGISTER proceeded to make a call to a bubble tea place down the street and ask if they still had some. THEY DID. I didn't even ask him. But he did it.

You bet your ass I marched on over to the place and got me a rice ball.

So I'm in pain. I had awful cramps going to work today. It was so hard to focus, this is the busiest day of the month for me. I felt terrible.

But someone who didn't know any of that was kind to me. And I feel good.

Cooper status - HE HAD ICE CREAM!!!!!

:hug: for pain... And :D for rice ball!
It seems to me that in France we tend to make every mistake made in the US government, but 10 years later and usually after you guys have realized how it really was a mistake and try a different direction. It's painful to watch really...

Penny pinching tiem! Mom feels so bad, she has really sensitive, soft teeth so I guess I inherited that.

@Tileenah I don't know much about French history other than... The Revolution and WWI/WWII. I oughta brush up on it.

I think teeth-wise it might be due to my acid reflux + tendency to grind my teeth in my sleep. Oops. Defo gonna talk to the doc about thaaat... Also, Jesus, after pregnancies? I don't have kids of my own but I have nothing but respect for people who go through that. I will give Cooper an extra floof hug for you.

@Tileenah I should have been more specific ahaha. So maybe from the revolution period to the WW2 period y'all copied our homework on our good subjects, then trusted us enough with the subjects we weren't as great about.

Thanks for the support, Ti, @Haleth and @Montserrat <3 OFF TO GET ABS

703 - Lower abs day 1, some calf raises, 10 kamehamehas.

93 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - I got a perfect IV Weedle on Pokemon go. My God. She is powerful. FIRST COMMENT GETS TO NICKNAME MY WEEDLE, I WILL NICKNAME HER REGARDLESS OF WHATEVER YOU DECIDE (as long as it's allowed by Pokemon GO standards)

Cooper status - fwuffy widdle buddy woke us up at five am barking at a SCARY THING. What was the SCARY THING? WHO KNOWS, A NOISE HAPPENED AND HE KEPT BARKING SO WE COULDN'T HEAR IT ANYMORE. But he must have scared it away! (probably the wind)

@Mianevem Alright, you get to choose - What do I name my Weedle in Pokemon go? The diligent guard dog loves you btw.

704 - Lower abs day 2, some flexin', and I tried a 10 second elbow plank, yay!

94 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - Went to the dentist today to talk about my tooth being, well, uh, yeah. Turns out they could give me a filling right away! My face and head still kinda hurt tho but that's largely due to where it was? It was my backmost molar on my top right... And the part that broke off was the back...

Cooper status - The SCARY NOISE did not return so CLEARLY he did a good job.

Oh, wow, I wasn't ready for this, for some reason I interpreted it so that the first comment with a name suggestion gets to name your Weedle. :panic:

So I passed the opportunity to my fiancé, who, not being in a creative mood, insisted that it should be named after our cat. So, your Weedle's name shall be Potyka. Potyka's a Great Hunter when he's not too lazy to move anything other than his ears and head and when he doesn't get distracted and lose track of his prey (which is usually a dust bunny or a crumpled paper ball), so he's the perfect namesake for a powerful pokémon!

@Mianevem BEHOLD! And don't worry ahaha, I should have been more clear, I'm sorry! And thusly, POTYKA THE GREAT HUNTER SHALL BE HERE FOREVER. I love the idea of this lazy hunter cat though... Can you give him a treat for me? He sounds so cute!

1683160359553.png

705 - Lower abs day 3, 2 minutes of arm scissors.

95 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - Impromptu hangout with my dad due to getting his car repaired lmao. But that's okay.

Oh and uh... I think, oh my God I think, knock on wood, that I have stopped bleeding. I'm still very tired. I think I lost enough blood to make a sword. So I will be taking it easy as much as I can. I have art walk Friday. A flea market next Saturday... Between now and then I will do my best to rest.

Cooper status - just a little guy. just a little fluff man.

@Tileenah In fairness if you were in more than one situation where you had to cheer that on then I'd just... Give you a hug, honestly-- OH MY GOD YES THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY KNOWING YOU THOUGHT OF ME VIA STRAWBERRIES. How were they? Were they good?

@Mianevem I will boop Coop in return for you!

The Sheltie council has deemed today that you're all beautiful.

710 - Attempted a plank. ... didn't work well! I think it's my arm/hand positions that're getting me. Hmm. Maybe I should boop someone irl as to what to do. So they can like, properly position me so I don't hurt myself (don't worry, I am unscathed). Calf raises while doing three (3) Duolingo lessons. Patting Coop on his cute widdle head.

108 - Ten minutes!

Good thing - I love you. Yes, you. Don't think, "oh, she doesn't mean me" YEAH I MEAN YOU.

Cooper status - @Tileenah He will be getting a fluffy hug in the morning. Because every hug with Cooper is a big, fluffy one. As he is big (for a Sheltie) and so fluffy not even Naruto can believe it. It is said that Shelties are fluffier than we can comprehend because our human brains can only process so much floof without going mad with the knowledge. He also got some shrimp tonight as I was making pasta.

719 - Lower abs day 17, 50 high crunches, a few kamehamehas... And I gave Cooper that big, floofy hug.

109 - Ten minutes will happen before bed.

Good thing - Mom made delicious pork tenderloin and I think that's gonna help my iron amounts lmao. My next period is uh, next week so... HOPE THIS ONE IS JUST A WEEK BECAUSE I'M GOING TO A CON NEXT MONTH AND I AIN'T BLEEDIN' ON THE BEDS

Cooper status - He found a mouse in the shower and tried to gently play with him. Alas, we had to take the little one outside (safely). Cooper is disappointed, but he understands. He was very gentle, though, as he is the goodest man.

720 - Lower abs day 18, 50 calf raises. Wanted to do more but then I realized it was getting late and uh, probably want to sleep tonight... Oh! Does lifting Cooper to hug him count? He's like, 30 pounds, so is that weight training?

110 - Ten minute meditation!

Good thing - I listened to my body? So I had some leftover pasta I was gonna have for lunch but something in my gut was like "no, Fish, you feel like garbo, go OUTSIDE, go to Dunkin' Donuts, get yourself a breakfast sandwich and some tea because breakfast sandwiches at least have some damn protein in them." Which led me to looking up healthier choices at Dunkin'... And now, I found a low-calorie drink I can enjoy too! Green tea, unsweetened, with the unsweeteneed raspberry flavoring. Yay for actually listening to myself!

Cooper status - HE RECEIVED CHEESE

Good thing - I am home. I am comfy.

Cooper status - So like, I took a shot of soju in celebration for someone's birthday online, but Cooper was already barking because mom was tenderizing chicken. I, for some reason, after I took the shot, showed Cooper the glass to see what he'd do. Said glass is a cute little one with an axolotl on it. He looked at the class, barked ONCE at it, then went back to barking at mom.
