Update and such!

Some of you have noticed that I have not been blogging at my usual rate. I am having some female issues and finally have been able to schedule a D&C for next Wednesday, the 21st.

I am so grateful to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have decided that hormones are no longer my friend and have declared war. I am tired of crying at the drop of a hat and all of the other fun stuff that comes with hormoneal swings.. My poor kids must think I have finally fallen(or jumped) into the abyss of insanity.

I was peri-menopausal at age 42 and that was six years ago...I am done...mentally, emotionally, physically. When this all began, I was put on hormones because I was battling murderous rages on a daily basis. The hormones were absolutely wonderful! I even had normal!

Unfortunately, they thickened my blood and caused me to have six full-blown strokes in seven days. I have no obvious signs of having had the strokes, but my health has been one battle after the other ever since. Thanks to a merciful God, at least there will be positive changes after next Wednesday:). All prayers appreciated.

On a much brighter note, my azaela bushes are in full bloom and just gorgeous!

Many hugs to you! Have a wonderful weekend~

Hugs and blessings,

Of course, prayers are being said. I was wondering if something was wrong since I hadn't read anything from you for a few days. I am glad there is a light at the end of the tunnel. If there is anything else I can do, please let me know.

Nicole said...

My goodness! Prayers for safety and healing are already on their way!! And lots of good ole positive thoughts for your spirits and quick recovery too!


Amanda said...

Can't our bodies be a real pain in the neck!! They just won't keep pace with our spirits. The next few weeks may be pretty hairy, but at least you can look forward to better times. Loads of luck for next week.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time. I also wanted to thank you for stopping by and brightening up MY day. The azaleas are beautiful. Thoughts and prayers go out to you..

No one warns you about anything but the hot flashes. I quit my job last week and got an anti-depressant to help me find an even balance again. I was having anxiety attacks and feeling extremely stressed out. I've been told from pre-menopause to post menopause can take up to 11 years - OH FUN!

My prayers are definitely with you my friend. I had a hysterectomy when I was in my mid 30's and have been spared the torment most women go through with menopause. I am so pleased you are smarter than most who just try to deal with "it" instead of seeking a physician's advice. Do what ever is necessary and get better soon - sure miss you!
