Saw my MO today because my left ankle was swollen. He sent me in for an ultrasound, and, yes, I do have a blood clot in my femoral vein/artery. I think. I just started hearing a lot of white noise. The big take-away is that I have a leg clot, and I'm going to have to inject myself with stuff to keep from having some rather ghastly problems.
I am needle phobic. I just did it for the first time. It stings. Should it? Am I doing something wrong.
Are there old hands at this in this forum who could talk me down? I don't think agonizing about it for an hour and sobbing while doing it is a sustainable model.
I've stopped blubbing for now.
In other news, progeny has returned home for summer break, and is so bummed about not being near their friends, that they have retired to their bedroom for what looks like some epic blues-style sulking.
What a happy, happy household.
