My body wanted nothing more than to be bedridden on Saturday. My mind wanted nothing more than to be out with friends. And so I was. I’m just sad I didn’t get to all the events I’d planned to get to. It took three Tylenol 3 and 1,800mg Ibuprofen to get through the day. There’s no way in hell I’d be at work on that kind of medication – thankfully it wasn’t a work day.
In honour of the supposed Rapture, I started my period!
I am wholly and childishly amused by this.
I am considering leaving blood soaked cloth on Camping’s lawn, since he lives a mile from me.
I was raised christian fundamentalist, so I feel a bit entitled in my retaliatory nature, being that I got a lifetime membership in psychiatric treatment thanks to my upbringing.
The week leading up to this failed rapture prediction has seen me emotionally volatile. Part of it was PMS but most of it was being repeatedly triggered by the media and all the billboards around town.
Anyway…been cramping for the past week. Pretty sure this is gonna be a really painful cycle, cuz I’ve been so stressed out with work and school – end of the year stuff coming up fast.
That’s all for now…
Well I’ve been meaning to keep you updated – and myself for that matter – on the progress and setbacks as each month post-op goes by.
However, I’m nearing the end of a teaching certificate program, and I’m working full time as an intern teacher, so I’ve had very little time to spend thinking about long narration of my menstrual woes.
I’m due on Sunday.
Parent observation week at school is next week. I’ll likely be out at least a day due to the pain. :(
I’m still missing 1-2 days of work each month, but it’s better than 3-4 days each month.
I’m under a lot of stress with this internship and trying to graduate a preschool class, take care of a stressed out head teacher, and get my thesis written and presented.
I tried using a progesterone cream for pain management on May 15, and within 6 hours I was a mental wreck. I’m putting off further experimentation with it until after graduation.
I’m back to the usual PMS cravings from all the stress. Been eating cheetos and chocolate again, and drinking more caffeine. Of course this ups the inflammation, I know.
That’s all I have time to say here today. Wheeeee.
