And so it begins

Last Thursday, I had my first "installation," during which a thankfully very nice nurse filled my bladder with various medicines to hopefully reduce the pain and other symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis. I'm not usually nervous about medical procedures but I've had a bad experience or two with a catheter so I was really sweating it. Fortunately, it wasn't too bad. I only got tears in my eyes once and levitated off the table twice, so really, it wasn't awful (clearly I have low standards in this regard).

Because I'm me, I like to write clever things or draw pictures on my urine sample cups. Having to come up with six weeks of clever is a bit challenging. Above is cup #1, written rather poorly because my hand was shaking. Suggestions are welcome!

Hopefully next time I'll be a little calmer.

  1. I once had to carry a gallon of my own urine into the waiting room at my doctor's office. The experience would have been a lot less humiliating had I thought to write something humourous on the container.

  2. Next time, my friend. Next time.

    Also, A GALLON??? WOW!
