MRI, piercings and Captain Jack Sparrow

I can't believe it's been 12 days since my last blog post, I'm ashamed. I haven't been up to anything special, but it's been a wonderful two weeks indeed. Last week I was unfortunately suffering from an excruciating headache for several days, and so I've been feeling both dizzy and nauseous again. Frustrating, but somehow I think I'm beginning to get used to it.. How sad isn't that?

I've back at the hospital for the MRI since the last time I wrote anything, but I don't have any results to share as of yet. Maybe in a couple of weeks. Having the MRI was an unusual experience. It was interesting, loud and noisy, fun and a bit claustrophobic. Not that I'm claustrophobic, but I do understand how some people freak out while inside the machine. The radiologist was very nice, and I had no problem staying still for the duration of the examination. In a way I'm hoping that the results will confirm a stroke, since that would explain why I suddenly got sick last fall - but on the other hand I think knowing that I actually had a stroke at 31 would be terrifying. No need to worry yet, I'll have to hear what the neurologist has to say first.

Apart from that I've been very effective lately. Since I had to remove my piercings before the MRI, I decided to take the opportunity to have the jewelery in my two most recent piercings changed and fitted. I was a little worried since my tragus seemed pretty unhealed still, but it turned out just fine. Now I'm wearing a standard 16g 8mm labret in my tragus, and a 14g 6mm labret in my lobe. The plan is still to exchange the labret for a tiny little ring, but I'll leave it alone until it's fully healed now that I'm wearing the correct size of jewelery. The following day, Thursday, I went back to the hairdresser. It feels like I was just there, but when I checked my calendar it turns out it's been almost three months already! I kept to the same style as last time, with undercuts and all, but this time I wanted it even shorter. I'm absolutely loving it, and I plan on keeping it like this for a while with minor tweaks only.

We even tried to attend the premiere of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" in 3D, but apparently someone didn't want us to watch it and we had to go home without having taken part in the latest escapades of Captain Jack Sparrow. Sadface! After waiting for good news for about 30 minutes we were all told they were unable to start the movie, so they issued two free tickets for everyone present. Quite neat actually. We went back the next day and watched the movie successfully. I'm not sure whether or not I like this 3D business, I need time to adjust my eyes to the weirdness, but I liked the movie. I did miss William Turner and Elizabeth Swann though, but the mermaids were awesome. Somewhere in between everything I've mentioned above was Constitution Day, which we spent pretty much the same way as last year.

Did I say that nothing much has happened? Seems like I've been up to quite a lot!

  1. I hope you will get good news from the MRI… but at the same time I hope you will get answers as to what it was that caused what happened to you.. I know I could be writing in Swedish but Ive spoken to english friends almost all day that Im not sure I am able to write in swedish atm Grin haha
    Everytime Im in town I feel the need to go and get some new piercings… I have 4 in my left ear and 6 in my other.. and thats it.. piercings or tattoos are really trying to get my attention atm Grin I have 3 tattoos already and something tells me that is enough… for now Wink
    I loved the Pirates movies, especially when the giant squid and Davy Jones was a part of them.. but since its now in 3D I dunno if I should go and watch it or not.. My fiancé wants to see it.. but my head starts to hurt after 5 minutes wearing those awful glasses Frown I´ll see what Ill do.. soon the last harry potter movie will get up on the cinemas and I HAVE TO SEE IT Grin
    unfortunately that one is also 3D *sigh*
    take care sweetie
    Hugs

    • Good to see you again, I’ve missed your comments sweetie! Also thank you for your kind words regarding my MRI. I don’t know what to think or feel, but I’m anxious to know the results.

      I love tattoos, so I know exactly what you mean! I have six tattoos (if you count my finger tattoos as one) and I’m desperately wanting more. I have a few ideas, so I’m going to a local tattoo parlor as soon as I have the opportunity to have them drawn up, but I’ll have to save up.. I kinda want more piercings as well, but I think the four I have in my right ear is enough (maybe I’ll venture into an industrial sometime).

      Don’t you have the option of choosing between 3D and 2D in Finland? Here we get both, even though it was the 3D version which was the world premiere. I’m going to watch it again in 2D, I think it’ll be easier to follow without the glasses and “special effects”. I’m definitely going to see the final Harry Potter movie, but I won’t be choosing the 3D showing.

      Take care you too! Smile *HUGS*

  2. Krysser fingrene for gode resultater fra undersøkelsen, og at du kanskje endelig får noen svar på hva som har gjort deg syk. Har du forresten sjekket ut OPI sin Pirateskolleksjon? Smile Kom på det når du skrev om filmen Razz Er en del fine lakker derfra!

    • Tusen takk, det setter jeg kjempestor pris på. Smile Jeg ønsker meg svar, selv om det beste selvsagt hadde vært å få beskjed om at jeg er frisk som en fisk. En forklaring hadde vært fint dog, jeg sliter med å tro at det bare har vært psykisk.

      Jo, jeg har på en måte glemt å blogge om det, men jeg har selvsagt skaffet meg alle lakkene fra PotC-kolleksjonen i tillegg til Silver Shatter. Planen var å lakke neglene i “Stranger Tides” til premieren, men ting blir sjeldent som jeg planlegger. Jeg hørte at mange var misfornøyde/skuffet over at disse neglelakkene var pastellfargede, men jeg syns de er lekre! Grin Har du dem selv?

  3. Ønsker deg uansett lykke til Smile Vet hvordan det er å gå med den klumpen i magen og lure på hva som er galt. Skal til utredning for noe greier jeg også nå i juni – endelig!

    Ja, jeg har ikke kjøpt alle jeg da. Kjøpte Mermaid Tears, Steady as She Rose og Sparrow me the Drama. Er kjempefornøyd Smile

    • Igjen tusen takk. Smile Jeg har nesten gitt opp å lure på hva som er galt, for selv om jeg vet at det er noe som ikke er som det skal, så når jeg liksom ikke frem med bekymringene mine. Joda, nå har jeg både fastlege og nevrolog i ryggen, men selv om jeg selvfølgelig håper at svaret er negativt når det kommer til hvorvidt det var et slag eller ei, så aner jeg ikke hva jeg skal gjøre om jeg får vite at dette arret er en medfødt greie jeg har hatt hele livet. Det forklarer ingenting, og jeg er tilbake på ‘square one’.

      Jeg ønsker deg riktig lykke til på din egen utredning, og håper du får svarene du ønsker deg – og at det ikke er noe alvorlig. Det er fryktelig (og frustrerende) at det skal ta så lang tid å få disse undersøkelsene som kanskje kan gi en ro i sjela. Jeg har mottatt to brev med beskjed om at jeg skal få time til ultralydundersøkelse for hjertet (i forbindelse med utredning for slag), en undersøkelse jeg vet tar kanskje 10 minutter, men jeg står i kø.. og aner ikke når det eventuelt skjer. Jeg har allerede ventet i to måneder. En kan bli tussete av mindre.

      “Mermaid Tears” er den flotteste i bunten, spør du meg. Selv er jeg ikke så fascinert av rosa, som jeg har nevnt hundre ganger før i andre sammenhenger, men jeg måtte jo nesten ha dem likevel da. Grin
