the 'joys' of being female

Postby bri23t » Sun Mar 23, 2008 3:55 pm

having a tough day and just thought id share...for almost 2 yrs i was in menopause (at only 26-27) due to the pressure in my head and

following my last surgery in jan 07 i apparently came out of it b/c i started seeing aunt flow again and now whenever its that time of the month, like today for lower back and head hurt worse than i thought they could...

i know that its good that im not in menopause...but god things were MUCH easier when i was...i have enough pain to deal w/ everyday and dont need my monthlys adding to my discomfort!...

today is one of those days where i wish it was all over...however that could be accomplished!!...i hope everyone else is having a better day than me!...

I'm so sorry. I've been in Menopause for a wihle now and boy am I glad. Hang in there, girl.

I did notice that the more symptomatic I became, the more pain I had with that time of the month. My hips, everything hurt.

I had a total hysterectomy 5 years ago, and it was the best thing i had ever done for myself. I wish I could have had more kids, but it's so nice not having to deal with all of that anymore.

Yay menopause!
