Just Another One Of Those Days…

  • So I found out today that I have tuberculosis. That’s one of those really scary things that you never want to hear from your doctor. Fortunately, after some testing, it was determined that I have latent tuberculosis instead of active, which means I’m not in huge danger and can’t spread it. I am, however, on antibiotics for the next several months, and I’m dead tired right now from all the running around to various clinics that I did.
  • On a more upbeat note, I was watching TBS the other day, and a commercial for Volvic FruitKiss aired with a really catchy song. I’ve never had this drink and the commercial didn’t exactly make me want some, but it did prompt me to look up the singer MiChi and the song KiSS KiSS xxx, and now it’s stuck in my head. This becomes yet another single and PV that I’m interested in, along with the Valkyria OP by HIMEKA and the current Bleach OP by SCANDAL.
  • Since the reaction to Trillian’s photography last time was so positive, here’s another image.
  • Edit: Thanks for all the messages of support – it really means a lot to me.

      good luck there

      My flatmate just got diagnosed with latent TB as well. She had to wait over 2 weeks for the results of her tests (and they lost the first batch so she had to do all the blood tests again!). UK hospitals have their moments.

      It still sucks, but glad you’re okay Omni.

    • May 9, 2009 at 5:33 pmSavofenno

      You`re a quite young person, aren`t you Omni? I hope tuberculosis is possible to heal completely, but i don`t know about it. Myself i have a transplanted kidney since August 2005, i had bad kidneys for over 20 years. But despite of my age, i feel reasonably well, have enough of retirement pension to live with my hobbies which include anime, manga, model building, playing music (jazz & rock of every genre, despite i`m awfully old, i need a new body at least 40 years younger desperately)& other typical otaku stuff since 80s and some of them much earlier. So, you don`t have to feel bad, if you only have things you`re REALLY into.

    • May 9, 2009 at 5:35 pmTim

      Omni, take care of yourself and make it a habit of always taking your antibiotics on time everday. That’s tough news to hear, but I’m certain you’ll pull through. You have to keep a positive attitude and don’t let it get you depressed. Having a positive mind can save you.

    • May 9, 2009 at 7:01 pmCain

      Take good care of yourself Omni.

    • May 9, 2009 at 7:09 pmmaxx

      You will be fine. I wish you a quick recovery. Hang in there. We need you ;)

    • May 9, 2009 at 11:09 pmKethy-chan

      I often read your blog (I LOVE it!!) and, yeah, sorry to hear about the TB. I hope for you that the antibiotics work and that somehow, you’ll be healthy again.

      Take care,

    • May 10, 2009 at 1:42 amAsakomi

      I am so sorry to hear the news! It’s been a long time since we last talked, but I do read your blog regularly. I hope your recovery goes smoothly. I hope you’re well, in spite of the circumstances.

      How do they diagnose you with tuberculosis? Skin test or chest X-ray?

      Don’t worry if you only have positive skin test, but negative chest X-ray. Lots of people have that. It’s just latent TB and nothing much to worry about. The bug is not going to harm you. It just means that you’ve exposed to the tuberculous bacteria in the past.

      Just be compliant to your medication. It’s gonna be 6 months though. Understand how tough it is.

    • May 10, 2009 at 6:00 amrakkynon

      why does it always, good guys get caught with tuberculosis. :\ well, good thing it was latent. hope you get better soon mate. ;)

      Tuberculosis? That’s nothing. I’m on a medical field, so I know :)
      Just religiously take your medication(s), follow the physicians orders, and you’ll be fine.

    • May 10, 2009 at 1:13 pmty

      Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. I hope you’ll get better soon. D=

      Hope you get well soon!

      Those antibiotics have bad side effects..I had experienced them when I had to drink them because of a misdiagnosis of a doctor. ^^;;

    • May 10, 2009 at 10:12 pmauntiebin

      take care :)
      Get Well Soon!!!

      One–third of the world’s current population has been infected with M. tuberculosis, and new infections occur at a rate of one per second.

    • May 13, 2009 at 3:27 amDMetroneis

      Oof, that’s too bad! Well, at least it was latent.
      Get well soon!

    • May 13, 2009 at 4:25 amjuxatposition.blue

      I think your Pneumothorax from before sounded scarier compare to this latent TB but that is just me. Ditto with “Get better” msg and hope you have no more issues.

    • May 13, 2009 at 11:20 amOmni

      Thanks for all the messages of support everyone. It really means a lot to me.

      Bacille Calmette Guérin, also known as BCG, is a vaccine given throughout many parts of the world. It is derived from an atypical mycobacterium but offers some protection from developing active tuberculosis, especially in infants and children. This vaccination is believed to be important in parts of the world where TB is quite common. This is not the case in the United States. When BCG has been administered, future PPD and Tine skin tests remain positive and can cause some confusion when trying to diagnose TB. It is also important to realize that even with a BCG vaccine in childhood, tuberculosis can still occur in an adult exposed to the tuberculosis bacteria, which calls into question the real utility and effectiveness of this vaccination.
