Next!

I'm still quite pissy. The edginess began building last week.

This is not proper PMS time. There's no crying in baseball.

I am wondering if this is the effects of the new bcp, Yasmin. Perhaps I should liberate myself from this one, too. I abhor being so mood sensitive and cringe that it is only two weeks until our cruise.

A little while ago, I wrote a blog post railing on my sister. My computer ate it. Good riddance, I guess.

You know the old adage, "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all" ? Well, this would be one empty blog flapping in the breeze if I kept all the meanness in. I guess that means I'm more productive with mine.

I hope to write a real post later.

I get like that with all BC, including Yasmin. The last one I was on I can't remember the name of, but it was supposed to be the absolutely lowest amount of hormones or whatever that could be prescribed and it made me a monster. Team that up with the possiblity of blood clots in my legs and I can't take any BC anymore. Heh. Too sensitive, I guess? Are you sensitive to BC at all?

Begin TMI...

I can't remember why I went off the one last March. The one I just went off was b/c of heavy period and severe PMS (worse than this irritability I have, but then it only lasted three days.) Used to be, I thought of bcps like water.

I want to be on them b/c I have a 21 day cycle without. (Divert your eyes!) I also have rectal bleeding at the beginning of my period, which means I have invasive endo. Being on bcps controls the bleeding and I could beg off on the colonoscopy, because it is so specific. Also, I do not want to toy with the idea of a bowel resection for something known and completely stupid.

Just please don't have me bleeding like a stuck pig and hating my mother during the cruise. It would be an expensive suck.

I have the rectal bleed, too. No one was able to explain that away after the colonoscopy. Heh. Wonder if that means the endo that I was diagnosed with but is invisible happens to be invasive too?

I hope things work out for your cruise. I know I wouldn't want to be having girl time (no idea why I call it that) when I was supposed to be having a nice vacation.

brite, I'm sorry, but happy. Did they also ask you, "Are you sure you didn't just get the holes mixed up?" Naw, I do know my lady parts well and can whip like a champ.

I was also told with my second surgery that I didn't have endo anymore. Mine, too, is invisible and invasive. Aren't we the pair?

At least mine doesn't hurt any longer. The worst I get is the phenom of rectal fullness, where the tissue is swollen and I think I have to go, but don't. That only lasts a day or two. I've had that symptom each month for almost 20 years and it's just mind over matter. (Oh, I crack myself up.)

It's happened to me, too.

I too go nuts on every BC pill I've ever taken. Including the ones that claim they're supposed to eradicate moodiness and PMS---which I believe Yasmin sells itself as such. I was prescribed it once and did some research on the net and found that many women went nuts on it. And some, yes, felt better. I decided not to try with my history.

Ah...endo...I just discovered that if I take D-phenylalanine 500 mg every day on an empty stomach that I can cut the Ibuprofen dose down and I don't suffer nearly as much pain. My last period was a relative breeze and normally I'm up all night at least one night. D-Phenylalanine is an amino acid that raises endorphins.

I've only done this one month so I can't be certain it was the amino acid and not just an unusual month.

Think I'll steer clear of the endo conversation, since I have no experience with that. But I do have to say that I've noticed more mood swings and PMS (depression or hostility...which will it be this month?) since I got my tubes tied and quit taking BCP's. We women just can't win for losing. Bah. Though I think I'd rather have a brain than a penis, thank you very much.

I have no idea, nor will I pry.

Oh, Yasmin made me crazier than anything, even my mom or an uncontrolled manic episode. Run away!

I'm hoping your moodiness will pass before your cruise. You still have time.
