PMSing

Monday, May 23, 2011

Man, I feel like crap right now. :(  After Peter has calculated about 7-8 days of hormonal bitchiness, my period started yesterday and, although I dont feel nearly as hormonal and on edge (evil PMS!!!), this lovely, 22 day cycle brings with us the traditional cramping, backache, and headache that some previous ones have blessed me with.  Funny enough, some periods are fine; they are there, but no real side effects.  Others, like this month's... Not fun.  Not one bit.  Chronic side to mid-back pain, TIREDness, cramps, and a headache that, last night, was so bad, that Peter held me as I couldnt stop the tears that dampened his pajama shirt until I fell asleep. 
I used to take something but after I started losing weight, I could no longer take ibuprophen or naproxen (which are the only 2 things I took before since the others made me sick) for headaches or muscle aches without strange, "disconnected" feelings.  These days, I only take them if I simply cant take whatever is happening combined with another adult to be on "baby duty" so that I can sequester myself in bed until the weirdness passes.  It's strange.  I'm assuming that my body is simply processing the medication differently and that difference isn't a feeling I'm comfortable with.

At this point, I'm wishing the kids felt like this day deserved a day of resting!  We could all snuggle in bed and just sleep all day! :)  I dont think they agree, however.  Currently, they are playing the piano and singing, while watching SuperWhy! before breakfast (which I just finished making for them and am now just waiting for SW to end so they can eat).

:( Ouch! It's a pity you can't take something more effective for the pain. xx

Ever thought of trying chiropractic? Just a thought. It's not just about backs and necks.

Oooh so many countdowns happening at the same time. Life in the Haytko household sure looks busy!

And you take care!
