cramps, Mood, pity party, sleeping, uterine fibroids
I disappeared. I slept all day and had a major pity party.I looked at my car and saw how dirty it is. My floors need cleaning. The dog needs a bath and a hair cut. The large fibroid in my back area became bothersome and I could not locate the Advil.
But you know what? I will regroup and come back with insight and humor. I promise.

painful periods, uterine fibroids
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.
