The Dreaded D Appointment

Well, the Obama poll has finished, and it looks like the v a s t majority of my readers are body-conscious democrats. Way to go! ;)

Well, I have a very sceeeery appointment with my D this afternoon. If I haven’t gained weight I’m supposed to be tubaged again. And it’s so frustrating, because if I try to explain to her that I was really sick this weekend, and I can’t help it if I have diarrhea because NO OF COURSE NOT NEVER EVER would I take laxatives, and I drank my Boost and did my best to follow my meal plan…..butbutbut BUT. And if I say this, and I still lose weight, which is an incredible phenom that seems to happen to me all the time, she won’t believe me. Or she’ll say she does, but I get all paranoid and know she doesn’t. And then she’ll want to nose rape me again, and then I’ll try to tell her what the allergist said, how the tube wouldn’t be a good idea at all even if it were possible, and she’d just think I was making up excuses.

So I don’t know what to do. I’d lament and rent my clothes and weep except I really like this shirt so I’ll do all the other stuff I just mentioned minus the renting part. BAH! So not looking forward to later today…

Oh, and I snapped this pic because I’m preeeeeettttty sure it’s the first time I’ve used hair product since I was a Freshman and desperate to look hottt so I’d use half an aerosol can a day hoping to look “in style.” I’m not sure how it turned out, but I’m a fan of my (very expensive) “Blair head band.” You like?

[BONUS POINTS if you know where the “Blair head band” reference comes from. Lana, you should...don't let me down!]

I want a better look at this 'do!

But regardless, you're hawt.

Heth said...

You need a bigger pic of the headband girl! What got into you and the hairspray? That makes me laugh. Headbands give me freakish headaches, so they're banded from my life!

I will definitely have you in my thoughts today about your D appt. I know it sucks, and I know that D's hardly EVER believe us b/c we're like, notorious liers, but hey......I believe that you tried your best despite the circumstances and a nose rape would suck. However, if it comes to that, hey, you can make up a ton of funny stories......like you used to about the tube, even though even then you hated it, understandably. I feel like there's nothing I can say to help out, so I will be thinking of you and hoping that you don't get nose-raped today. : )

Heth, silly woman, click on the pic to enlarge it. Then, trust me, it'll be bigger than you'll even want. I think you might even be able to check out my zits. ;)

Stacy said...

I hope your D gets it. being sick totally screws everything up.

the head band... Gossip Girl. I am completely and shamelessly addicted. My hubby even kind of knows what is going on, I torture the poor man with my girly shows.

so do you think you allergies and asthma and ED all connect. If i couldn't breathe I think my desire to eat would diminish. hmmm. maybe there is a study somewhere...

Kyla said...

thinking HEAVY thoughts (heavy is in caps because I'm thinking hard). Seriously, though, I hope your D understands that you were sick.

Kyla said...

what time is your appt?

Heth said...

Wow...now I can see it..thanks for the tip. : )

So, on a different note, remember how you always gave me make-overs at the prison camp? Well, I LOVE how your eyeliner looks in this pic! You've GOT to teach me...what brand do you use, etc. I suck at make-up, as you well know. Please send help my way!

I just bought a headband like the one you are wearing only mine is from Ann Taylor. Cool.

Well you have probably already gone to the big D. I'm thinking HEAVY retroactive thoughts!

Heth said...

Wow, like how did my comment get on their like 3 times? Yikes, please delete the repeated ones!!!

tawny said...

When I saw you at the mall today (yay,the sis's finally hang!) that was the first think i noticed was your flowerlicious, bling, headband. Tawny soooo wants one now! LOVE IT~

brie said...

Stace Face, you rock my world! Gossip Girls it is. :)

So, the D appt has (obviously) come and gone. Eh. Not that great. Not a nose rape, but soon, as in perhaps next week -- decisions will need to be made of me having to get a PEG tube. My sinuses are pretty much ravaged so they'll just ruin my stomach now. But she *did* take into account me being sick, so she's giving me another week to try.

Guys.

Suck. :(

kristin said...

Awwww, sorry it didn't go as well as you hoped, Brie. Hang in there! I hope that you can gain weight in the next week. I know you can!

Take care! Love ya!

Kyla said...

sorry hon

jana bananas said...

I hope you feel better this week so you can get your weight back up. I heard PEGs are no fun and I know you don't want one! Come on Briester...you can do this without nose or stomach rape. I know it.

brie said...

Oh and Heth...

The eyeliner. It's from MAC, so it'll cost you $15 or so, but it's absolutely worth it - I've had it for almost a year and there's still plenty in there. I can tell you more about it via email, k?

Krista said...

Your hair looks fabulous in that picture! Is it curly at all? Sorry about the possible PEG. Eat tons this week and maybe you can avoid having it done... easier said than done though right?

Oh yeah, I making it my mission to find out about E now! Not that I really care if she is or not, I just want to know.

Pattie said...

I'm a huge fan of Sephora and to tell you the truth, MAC scares me. Everyone there has such perfect make-up and here I am... with my novice attempt at a "smokey eye"... I actually tried it today. I'll post a picture of it on my blog. Anyway, sorry the appointment didn't go like you wanted it too and that you had to defend yourself to D. Much love.

Pattie said...

ugh... never mind. Smokey eye Pattie will have to wait 'til tomorrow. Camera is dead.

brie said...

I wanna see smokey-eye Pattie! And I can't get access to your blog! aaah!

Ooh - and about scary MAC workers: I used to be intimidated too until I worked at a makeup counter for awhile and just realized we were all a bunch of rejects. Seriously. ;)

Laura said...

DId you wear that headband at weigh in? Looks like it weighs at least 2 pounds!

I wonder what other options, completely un-tube related, there are for you? Just curious. I see plenty of under weight women here in L.A. and I have yet to see a tube on anyone. Can't help but think there is another way about this.

Brooke said...

Hey Breez, sorry life sucks for you. It's got to get frustrating week after week wondering what is going to happen....ahhhh!

Hang in there!
