  2. 5139. I Did a Surgery

    On February 23rd of this year, I gave myself a small but significant hernia at work. Yesterday I finally had it repaired.

    This has been a saga. At first I was misdiagnosed with a sprained abdominal muscle, which lead to me being repeatedly sent back to work after it "should ...

  3. 5131. Light at the End of the Tunnel

    Scheduled for surgery! Having my hernia fixed on the 27th. Ten days off work, another 4½ weeks light duty, then (in theory) back to work! ALSO, as a side effect, I’ll get to start HRT after that!

    TIL that I can yell way louder at the couple I live with than either of them can yell at the other. It's been so long since I expressed anger directly and unreservedly at its instigator, I'd forgotten what it felt like. It's not pleasant.

    Hope I ...

    I attended a new D&D game last night! I had a blast. It was a huge group, all doing character generation, and the DM had his hands full, so I became deputy rules authority. I only read the Player's Handbook once, I swear.… But there I was explaining ...

    Apparently I'm the kind of person who will do all my roommate's dishes every day without complaint. We're very rare. He should treasure me.

    I figured this out about household chores: each person in a house has their own threshold at which they're motivated to attend ...
