Complaint day...

I'm grumpy, I'm irritable and I'm impossible to please today. The PAIN from the Invisalign trays has eased at long last (this is good and should make me happy). The weather has gone from 65 degrees to 97 degrees in 3 days (not so good, but shouldn't affect me here in my climate controlled cubicle). I'm not entirely sure what the problem is but I think it is going to get blamed on perimenopause....

A little background on me and perimenopause. It started for me around 40 with painful & heavy cycles, mood swings, hot flashes, weight gain... the usual. I had an endometrial ablation procedure that worked wonderfully for 5 years!! Five years without monthly "stuff" or pain. But since Christmas there have been issues and occasional spotting. Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon and evening in the fetal position fighting off the worst cramps I can remember... Lots of ibuprofen, heating pad sessions and a sleeping pill had everything easing around 2AM last night. Unfair!! Unfair! I thought this was all taken care of with the ablation, but evidently (according to my doctor) I have sprouted a few non-cancerous polyps which are causing this. And, she says that unless there are serious problems, there is nothing we can do about it. So I'm thinking that I just have to tough this out... And, it is making me a grouch. Looking for the silver lining here - my husband gave me a fabulous foot rub last night and has promised another when I get home from work today. I've got that going for me, which is NICE.

On a happier note, I only have to work 4 days this week as we are going camping for the Memorial Day holiday weekend and leave Thursday night!! (Becky, don't start thinking of all the preparation work you still have to do to get ready to leave - or the happy note will turn sour!)

So, now that I have gotten the rant out I'm sure I'll be feeling just dandy any minute now! Sorry for all the graphic detail -- LOL

Sorry Sis, that sounds miserable. I've have the opposite "perk" of perimnopause....irregular....I never know when I may have my period. I haven't had it for over 5 months right now. When it does come, you are never prepared.

Hope it will get better!
