It’s firm, but smooth, and doesn’t move easily.

Is that post for me or for Null to take out of context?

Neither, its their socially awkward way of chatting you up.

I tried looking up rare cancers of the breast to see if any match my lump. Yeah, I should probably do other stuff while waiting for the imaging. Anyway, which of these do you think looks good on me?

Angiosarcoma, phyllodes tumor, adenoid cystic carcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, tubular carcinoma, or mucinous carcinoma.

Still confused about my lump after looking around more. It’s oval shaped, which is usually benign, but it also doesn’t move easily. Benign lumps are supposed to move easily. Given that it’s also firm, it’s probably not a cyst. Since it has a regular shape though, I’m thinking it’s something benign, but I don’t know what. It might just be thick breast tissue, but if so, I wonder why it’s not the same on the right side.

I also don’t feel any swollen lymph nodes, so that’s a good sign.

I know they said that the mole on my left calf is benign, but I think it’s grown since the biopsy. I don’t go back to the dermatologist for a year either. Oh well, one thing at a time. Let me get my chest imaged first.

100.2 degrees just now and I didn’t cheat it up with hot food or coffee. Unless you count jalapeño flavor potato chips, but those are spicy, not literally hot.

Jeez, my resting heart rate is like 130 too. I don’t want to cancel my dinner plans, but I do feel a bit sick. I’ll see how I feel in an hour.

Trying to find a new health obsession. An online symptom checker said I could have hyperthyroidism. This isn’t the first time this has happened, but I still insist that if I had hyperthyroidism, I wouldn’t be so fat.

Edit: I should also note that my symptoms could be caused by excessive caffeine use, but I’ve only been drinking decaf lately, except on Wednesdays.

I’m thinking of trying supplementing with phenylalanine. I heard tyrosine was good for some of my symptoms, but also raises blood pressure. Phenylalanine is a precursor to tyrosine, so my body will decide how much tyrosine I get. Plus, I’m pretty sure phenylalanine is the reason diet soda makes me feel so good. I only drink diet soda on Wednesdays these days.

I might have found a new health obsession: my kidneys. I have facial swelling, foamy urine, and high blood pressure. My only problem right now is that my next checkup isn’t until August. Can my kidneys hold out that long?
