Medical stuff

In November 2012 I got a check up liver biopsy, it showed that I have slight cirrhosis, which I have had before, and it healed itself before, so I am hoping it will do so again, as long as I keep up with medicine!

Also in November I started having stomach issues again (I'm going to get a little gross here). I started having bloody diarrhea multiple times a day, sometimes I would just poo straight up blood. It was not fun having to constantly run to the bathroom through out the day.  Also losing as much blood as I did on a daily basis, made me really tired so I ended up sleeping A LOT and when I wasn't sleeping I was super lethargic. It took everything I had to go to my internship, even though it was only a couple times a week for a couple hours a day, it was still very hard for me to go.  In December I got a colonoscopy and an upper endoscopy to try to figure out what was going on, which they were actually able to find something! A few somethings actually. They found that I had H. Pylori, slight Gastritis and Ulcerative Proctitis. The H. Pylori is a bacteria and they tested me for it again in February by doing a breath test thing where I had to drink some like sour lemonade tasting stuff, and breath into a bag, it came back negative! So that was some really good news.  I haven't had stomach issues for the most part since December, every now and then my stomach will hurt pretty bad but not very often so I'm not too worried about it.
