Follow the light until it’s all gone

So much random stuff has been going on since my last entry that I’m not even sure how to start this. I guess I will start with the funny/not so funny stuff.

So, my neurologist scheduled me for another MRI! Goodbye all my money, hello more debt! lol Anyway, this one was for my neck. The reason was because of all the pain down both my arms. There was even one day they got so bad I couldn’t even pick up a fork to feed myself. Honestly, I don’t think the MRI is going to show anything. The neurologist said it is common for people with fibro to get inflammation in that area that can cause pain and less mobility from time to time. However, he has to be sure rather than just say, oh you have fibro that is why! I’m glad I have a thorough doctor despite the debt it is putting me in, haha.

So the funny part of the story? Well, while I was in the MRI it broke down. The damn thing over heated, haha! We had only 2 images left. Luckily they could pull me out but I had to lay still for a good 20 minutes to see if they could fix it. They finally decided that wasn’t going to be possible and sent me home. Then, around 9:30 the tech texted me (because she had asked for my number to see if she could slip me in to finish the test when it came back up and she finished her last patient) if I could come in to finish. I was in so much pain but I wanted it over with and it was nice of her to stay a bit to finish it up for me so I said yes. Apparently the MRI over heated because it was 105+ degrees outside and the cooling part of the machine is underneath a window… yup bad planning.

Asexual, Aromantic, or both?

This might be a really long post, one that you might think TLDR. It’s a huge topic for me since I’m finally coming to terms with my sexuality and why I am the way I am. There are so many terms and labels going around, it can get confusing. I don’t like to use the word ‘label’ though. To me, it just helps me to explain my situation to people. I can’t change it. Just like a persons race can’t be changed.

So, I started out as identifying myself as Asexual. I mulled over this for months and in the last few weeks I have been reading up on it and other peoples experiences. The more I did, the more I felt like this was me. It was a refreshing realization. It was almost like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.

Don’t know what an asexual is? By definition it means, someone who does not experience sexual attraction. It’s not a choice, it is just the way we are. You can read more about on asexuality.org.
