On top of everything else, I am now on day 13 of my period. I'm considering seeing a doctor.
Bizarrely, as many doctors as I have been seeing lately, I don't really have a GP. I have seen an OB/GYN, but it's been years ago, so I don't think I can just call her, or get an appointment on short notice. I guess I should try.
The other problem is, I just don't have time. I have final projects that must be graded by Monday afternoon. Sunday morning, I have an eye appointment. Tuesday morning I have a root canal. I'm thinking of stopping by my endocrinologist's office while I'm in the clinic for the eye appointment. This huge weight gain and non-stop period thing could be related, and could be thyroid or other endocrine problem related, I'm afraid.
My grandmother went to the hospital with bleeding when she was in her 60s (ie, well past menopause) and was diagnosed with diabetes and admitted.
I hope I'm not going in that direction.
For now, I might just pretend this isn't happening...
