  1. I'll be another to plug boric acid capsules. Definitely wear pantyliners throughout treatment, but it's crazy effective.
  2. It's taken me a pretty big conscious effort, but I pretty much don't think about nipping out anymore. I kind of forced myself to desensitize because I stopped wearing bras to work for a while. That was nerve-wracking.
  3. Camp Nerd Fitness was incredible. I'll write more later. My body is doing well. I have some thoughts about how I want to plan out my progression, but I'll wait until I'm on a real keyboard to expand on that.
  4. I think this one mostly boils down to genetics unless there's some kind of hormonal imbalance at play.
  5. I think that whole "society and patriarchy" bit comes into play when it's not just comparison, it's comparison that makes you feel bad. It's one thing to think "She's not like me" and it's another to think "She's not like me and she looks better than me." THAT is something we learn. I try to be really conscious of my internal judgements. One thing that has a had a huge impact on how I view body weight and physical ability in other people is my chronic injuries. I don't take the stairs because it HURTS to take the stairs. So fuck you very much, Mr. Felt Compelled to Comment on Lazy
  6. Got the new PT prescription, initial evaluation next week. I am struggling on the food front. Breakfast is mostly green smoothies because that's all that appeals to me so early in the morning, but they aren't filling. Lunch has been a mix of sandwiches, wraps, and buying something in the caf. I wish eating just cherries or grapes could fill me up because that sounds great!
  7. Still really enjoying my new job, but exhausted all the time! We're getting into a busy time of year too (back to school) so it's only going to get busier for the next month+. I hope I am not a pile of exhaustion for Camp Nerd Fitness. I am trying to get a new prescription for my wrists, specifically for PT and not OT (what it's for now). The facility near work only does PT. I'm doing my best on my own, but there's a lot of fluctuation throughout the week between good days and bad days and re-aggravating things.
  8. I've heard the Thinx underwear works for incontinence (not just periods). Might be something to try for running?
  9. Some randomness: An interesting conversation I had with a friend after I came out... She is also bi, and also in the situation of being in an apparently heteronormative relationship, getting married to a cis-guy, never dated women, etc. For women (maybe just particularly in the US or Western culture) it can be super confusing growing up with how open girl friendships can be. Like, it's okay to change in the same room as each other, okay to compliment each other's bodies & appearance etc. So when you're not sure if you're attracted to a body or *just* admiring... that's really confusing.

  10. My new job is pretty good, so much going on that it's been hard to process how I feel about it really! My forearms & wrists took a hit from my commute via public transportation. Swinging around on the bars in the bus/train is really really bad for them. My legs aren't happy either from walking/trying to stand on swaying platforms. I will be trying two things: wearing my wrist braces for the commute (might as well see what it does) and bringing a cane. I hope the cane will alert people to my need for a seat :\ My OT said that I may be facing carpal tunnel surgery at
  11. Funny that I wrote in here so long ago (February and March) and now I'm possibly facing carpal tunnel surgery and may have mild compartment syndrome in my calves. I think if anyone gets tendinitis or a sprain due to hyperlaxity, they should go to physical therapy/occupational therapy for as long as it takes to stabilize things. Then go to an experienced personal trainer to get specific instruction for their chosen workout program. The alternative is probably recurring injuries for the rest of your active life and trust me, after just 6 months of this, I am fed up with it.
  12. Tattoo nerdery: There's a lot of debate about the longevity of watercolor style tattoos. It's a relatively new style so no one really knows how they'll look 10+ years down the line. I would recommend that you do a lot of research about your artist and make sure they have a lot of experience with watercolor tattoos. It's a good idea to have some kind of black framework within a watercolor tattoo to kind of "ground" the image. If the color portions end up blurring and fading a lot (many think that they will, but again it's a pretty new style), you'll still have the crisp detail from the black in
  13. I hustled a little too much to get to a pokestop yesterday and now my legs hurt. This game may be dangerous for me haha
  14. OT session today hurt a bit, my hands are slightly tingly. We did ultrasound around my elbows (the fleshy sides). We should start some really light strengthening exercises next week. Yesterday was crazy busy and I didn't have time to swim. As soon as the threat of rain passes over the next few days, I'll be in that pool!
  15. Got some new exercises at PT, one with a band and the other is single-leg standing calf raises. I took an epsom salt bath yesterday AM and it felt great. If I have time, I'll try to take more of those to get the blood flowing.
