Feeling sorry for myself

Saturday, June 09, 2012

I've just started my third period since 4th May. That's one roughly every 2 weeks. It's too early to be sure about this one, but the previous one was extra heavy (I'm talking gross, here, and I'll avoid the details), and this one seems to be going the same way. So much for menopause.

Apart from all the PMT symptoms also being present (stuffing face galore), I'm also feeling really weak and completely lacking energy. I suppose it's no surprise with the amount of blood I've been losing, but still... I was meant to meet someone today, and when that was cancelled because he wasn't feeling too well I decided to go on the London Naked Bike Ride (although I would have kept my clothes on!)... That was scuppered as I'm not going to risk being too far from home without a few changes of clothes.
Tomorrow I was meant to meet someone else. We've been trying to get together for ages but he kept cancelling due to work commitments at the last minute. For the first time we'd managed to get it together and I was really looking forward to seeing him... I texted him to cancel this afternoon, after seeing the situation.

I'm fed up. I want a life.

    You are such a delightful person I'm sorry to see you so sad. I hope your doctor had some happy pills for you.

    Let me echo the "see a doctor" advice. This is something that needs to be checked out, and there should be help for it in this day and age.

    Hang in there.

    See if you can get some medical help!! I had a hysterectomy and was SO relieved; friends have used the pill (with no break = no period); and the uterine ablation works well if you are not at an age where you want kids.

    Have you spoke with your doctor about this? There are lots of things that can be done about heavy periods. I had a uterine ablation done about 7 years ago and it was one of the best decisions that I ever made.

    Hoping things improve for you soon. emoticon
