My Friend


After six months of disappearance my friend came back. She was not missed. I did not even think about her in the least because she was a pain in the asthma attack. Whenever I knew she was coming around I would cringe and brace myself, and I would get warnings two weeks before she showed up. Like clockwork I always knew when her triflin’ butt would appear, wrecking havoc on my life. It was like Basketball Wives, RHOA , Hip Hop Wives, Star Jones and BET’s old girl “Cita” from “Cita’s World“, rolled into one. Add a dash of a thug missus from “Bad Girls’ Club“, a shot of a contestant from “Maury” and a jilted jump off from “For the Love of Ray J” and you get the picture. This child was conniving and a backstabber, so I prepared for her with a bag of salt and vinegar chips and copious amounts of Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate anything, the more chocolate the better. When my friend was around I craved protein just to deal with her so a nice medium rib eye did the trick.

After leaving from around me I felt much better. My moods were better and I could think clearer. But I knew that heifer would be back. She didn’t care how old I was she wanted to mess with me. I told her I was too old to for her to be hanging around, and she just laughed and said that she’ll be back because she enjoyed messing with my head. I replied, “You narcissistic, blatant, b, u were gone for half a year and now you wanna come back?!”

What I just described was my menstrual cycle. Happy Monday!!

I mentioned yesterday that I would discuss how Blacks view the medical community.  I wanted to give you specific facts but I cannot at this time. You see, today I had serious cramps caused by my fibroid tumors. I had a procedure to reduce them back in July and the larger ones have decreased in size, but they are within the muscles of my uterus causing pain and fatigue. I took two Advil this morning and hoped the pain would go away. It did, but in one area on my right side. Now I have pain in my lower back area; the nurse showed me on the ultrasound how  massive the fibroid was pre-procedure. I don’t know if I am ovulating  at this time. I am in the perimentrual phase of my life being forty-five years old and all. From the age of fourteen on I have had periods that wrecked havoc on my life. At the age of eighteen I started taking birth control pills in order to have less pain during my cycles and that helped but the side effect was nausea.

I have just listed to conditions that have exacerbated my depression: uterine fibroids and painful menstrual periods. It is enough to make one go over the edge. So today, I slept, with my puppy by my side. I will try to get back to you soon.
