No News

After a week of waiting to hear about an appointment from a specialist I thought I'd call just to find out when that appointment is and all of that. Being on hold is something I'm getting used to these days after having to deal with multiple cell phone companies, so I have had the opportunity to breathe and practice relaxing when I don't feel like it. 15 minutes later she found my referral and appointment time.

So the appointment is in the middle of May. That is not satisfactory to me given that I've been having my period for almost 2 months and I requested an earlier appointment or a different new doctor. My GP hasn't even seen the results from the test I had last Saturday so the receptionist will follow up she said. I asked if she wanted me to call the lab but she said she'll do it and get back to me.

I'm not freaked out because my period has lightened up to almost nothing finally but I know that it's just a matter of days before it will all start again and any sense of normalcy I have at the moment will dissipate. So I'm balancing being proactive without freaking out - commitment versus attachment. I'm committed to getting an earlier appointment and getting a doctor on my team sooner rather than later, but at the moment I don't feel attached to it. Worst thing is I wait until May, or bleed to death before then. I'm kidding. I'll go to the hospital before then if it's serious, okay?

I'm sorry Jamine. I too have this 'condition' along with a few other 'girlie' issues that can make life complicated. If it's any consolation, my symptoms have really eased up over the past year, as I approach 50, sigh.

Thanks Holly. I wonder why I haven't heard that much about it up until now. We go so invisible! I have found out that I'm in good company with some of this "girlie" stuff...

Oh wow...I had mine for just over a month once and (not having found yoga yet at that point..ahem) thought about killing myself and everyone else around me. Just kidding...um, mostly. Hope you get some answers soon!

I don't know if you're into the herbal side of the house or not, but there may be some tinctures or infusions that may be of help to you. May be worth looking into, if you're into that.

Good luck!

Well tomorrow will tell 'cause that's when I get to see the doctor. Thanks for your support, ladies! Cindi, send me the tincture list, I'd be happy to check it out!
