Free to a Good Home

To Give Away:

I'll even throw in the cysts for free, folks. They could be all yours, just say the word. How could anyone possibly say no to a deal this good?

Warning - girlie bits discussed below.

I whipped out early this morning to finish some last minute birthday shopping for my mother. Thank goodness it wasn't until the ride home that I felt like I was going to pass out from the pain. It seems I'll have something else besides my blood pressure and test results to discuss with Dr. H when I see him again in January. The pain has been getting slightly worse over the past few months so I'm seriously considering going back on the medication the specialist recommended last year. I'll have to put my aversion to pharmaceuticals and my fears of dependency/addiction aside this time around (thanks mom). It's odd that none of my other symptoms have been getting worse or changing. The pain has always been fairly managable up until now - sure there's the occasional day off and that time when I was 18 that I thought someone was scraping the lining of my uterus with the tines of a fork, but nothing too major. I avoided taking the suggested medication because it didn't seem to be doing anything (apparently you have to take it for longer than a week...who knew?). Everything else was easy to deal with - it doesn't really matter now if I lose any more hair since I've got that covered (ha ha ha...I'm so funny), and unless I suddenly develop a beard overnight, a tweeze here and there is easy enough. The weight around the middle? More of me to love.

Thank goodness the cats are feeling snuggly today. It looks as though we'll be spending the day together in bed. Be back soon - preferably minus two enlarged extremely bumpy egg sacks.

Ah, Karen, I am so sorry you're going through this. Makes my PMS seem like a breeze in comparison...I feel lucky. I hope the pain passes soon and you're up and at it again before long. A day with the cats snuggling up to you sounds like a great way to spend the time, though.

Hope you get to feeling better. I'm glad that's one thing I don't have to worry about anymore. I hope you get a resolution! I don't like pain pills either! As a result, sometimes I suffer needlessly. My daughter made me take one before going to the Nutcracker today which was a good thing - too many seats in the theatre too close together, no wiggle space for more comfort!

Didn't have sound to listen to the video - but the video part is really good, even when I can't hear the audio!
