A Painful Surprise...

Saturday, July 28, 2007
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't spoken about my PCOS for quite some time. Well, there's good reason for that. Except for a minor flare up a few weeks ago that passed quickly, I haven't had any pain for over a month or more. That was until yesterday. While having my morning shower yesterday morning, I had a sudden "attack" for lack of a better word and ended up huddled on the bottom of the tub in a ball, water pelting me from above. Thankfully, I made it out of the shower, threw myself back into bed and curled up with one of the kitties (and no he's not the Cat Reaper) for ten minutes. It passed as suddenly as it started and I made it through the rest of the day with no problems.

I think the pain was, in part, brought on by PMS. However, the exercise, which was recommended by my doctor, really is helping I think. Both he and the specialist I saw a few years ago said losing weight would help a bit as well. While I haven't lost any yet, the fact that I've been out and about regularly certainly seems to have put the kaibosh (sp?) on the pain. Yet another reason to keep "training". Today's going to be a rest day for me as I walked home every day this past week except for Monday when I was babysitting right after work. I did do a short walk very VERY early this morning as I had to make it to the drug store for my BP medication. A quick check of the countdown clock shows that there is only ... oh ... my ... god ... 14 days left ...

There has been little sleep in my life this week. Not sure why, can't blame it on the cats this time. Just couldn't sleep. As such, by the time Friday afternoon rolled around and I started heading home, I was practically sleep walking. In the mail on Thursday I had received a notice that a parcel was waiting for me. Originally I was going to just leave it and pick it up on Saturday or Monday but the traffic lights keep directing me closer and closer to the post office so I picked it up. Much to my surprise, it was a package from Amazon. Turns out, a fabulous friend and fellow blogger sent me a little something for no reason. Looks like my reading list is going to undergo yet another revamping... Aren't surprises wonderful?

That book looks really interesting. Let me know what you think of it, eh?

Sorry about your pain... I think it's great, however, that you've noticed a difference since starting an exercise routine. All the more reason to keep with it, right?

I know you're gonna do great at the marathon!!!

Congrats on breaking the exercise barrier - I have been working out at least 2 times a week on machines but hate the floor exercise I need to do for my back. Have been trying to walk the beach too - the pull of the sand makes it harder. Still every single moment, my mind is saying don't do it, don't do it, then the other side of the brain comes in, do it do it. Gees!

I hope you get your sleep regulated AND your health as well.
