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)!!!
