Oh yay, thanks to my uterus, I get to use my HagRag!

If you've ever considered using the non disposable menstrual napkins, I highly recommend this site, by the way! Affordable - ADORABLE, and the site's owner, Tanya, is beyond wonderful!
I didn't actually see a doctor yesterday, per se, but a nurse practitioner. He was beyond nice and we joked around muchly. I just really wish I wouldn't have kept doing this weird thing where I kept giving him two thumbs up after a bunch of my sentences.
(Have I mentioned that I'm socially awkward at times?)
He prescribed me something for the dizziness and a gel for the rosacea. When I went to get them filled, I was informed that the pills were not covered by my insurance and were $11.99. The gel? $179.99!!! For a 30 day supply, yo! I almost wet myself in the middle of Barnes & Noble when they told me over the phone. After some recalculating, they got it down to just under $40.. and while I was more excited about the gel than the not being dizzy (priorities!) I could only afford one or the other for the next couple of days, so got the pills. Apparently, they don't cure anything other than dizziness, and will knock me on my ass when I take them.
(At least I'm not working.)
So my birthday is on Wednesday! Any of you local yocals want to get together for lunch or something? We generally hit Taste of Asia in downtown Vancouver since it's free for birthday girls and boys around! Or maybe get together for something else? I'm open to ideas, really. I don't know why, but this is the first birthday in years that I have WANTED to do something other than stuff myself to bursting with eight different kinds of meat.
