oh my STARS!

September 8, 2009 Uncategorized 12

Let me just start by saying I am not a woman who likes surprises!
Imagine my shock yesterday when I discovered that a not so welcome friend had returned into my life
Over a year ago I stopped having periods and lovingly accepted menopause into my life. My doctor confirmed my low low low hormones at my annual visit last November. Hot flashes suck, but oh well, we’ll live.

But oh no!!! Yesterday I discover I’m having a period………I’m shocked, irritated and well in general pissed off!

I thought I was done, I was happy to no longer deal with tampons or pads or surprises or what not. I hadn’t been one to cramp all the time, but gone too were those symptoms. I figured I’d been menstruating for @ 35 years, so I’d paid my dues. I’d bragged to my daughters handing over half used boxes of tampons and wishing them well…………feeling oh so proud of myself for holding onto my ovaries and uterus and keeping them til my reproductive use was spent.

Today I am resigned to the fact that I’m going to have to stock my own bathroom again, at least for now, since it was no fluke or spotting incident and I guess my womb has decided it does not want to be shut down………..Oh My Hell(as my bloggy friend Tammy would say)!!!

    Oh that is totally not fair!
    I have all they symptoms still even cramping.. But only a little bit of spotting. I wish all the yucky symptoms would go away I can handle the spotting.

    I guess I’m in the minority here. I still have periods and would gladly keep having them for the rest of my life. I so do NOT want to go through menopause and all the symptoms that go along with that.

    Mine is acting like an ornery teen – all over the place, one minute light, the next I swear I’ll die. This last one went on for two straight weeks!!! I’m 47 – when will this stop???

    For years I felt like Pam….I’ll keep having the periods to avoid the other consequences. However, having mostly stopped, too, and occasionally being surprised, I am so over it! But mother nature hasn’t totally agreed so I guess I’m not in charge!

    Boy, would that piss me off! Nothing like post-menopausal life…and I mean that in the truest sense.

    You can have a period and still be post…..but if it’s long in duration or happens again, you should make a call to your gyno.

    Once I had a period last 22 days and, when I called my doctor, she said I should have called when I hit 10 days.

    Are you working outside of the house now, Anita? Is everything okay? I miss your posts – a lot.

    Yucky! Hugs! I don’t even know what to say because I haven’t had any menopause signs or symptoms…well maybe small things…but???

    Rotten luck! Maybe God has another baby in my mind for you?

    (O.K., O.K. … just kidding … LOL!)

    Seriously, I cannot stand that time of the month. Women get a bad deal with this!
