Feeling terrible.

Feeling pretty freaking terrible today. If you want can you please pray for me?

It's a sad day for me because I had to let my supervisors know what's going on. I've forgotten that I changed some session times and have missed them. I really hope I get better soon.

I got one test result back: erythrocyte sedimentation rate. It's in normal range, which although doesn't indicate I'm free from disease or inflammation, it most likely rules out a certain cancer that it tests for. One step closer to figuring it out.

Another test back: Creatine kinase test. It's normal which means I do not have muscle damage. okie dokie.

T4 test is back: in normal range which means it's not a thyroid problem.
