Health Update Thursday(10/13)

This seems to be a reoccuring pattern.

I update everyone on my health just as soon as I'm expecting Tom. Which, yes, I AM indeed expecting him, and yes, I am indeed not a happy camper because of it.

Included in this month's visit, Tom brought along a few of his friends:

-Mr. Brain-dead
-Ms. Depression
-Mr. and Mrs. Pain (there are two of them because I feel a lot of pain)
-Miss Moody and her sister, Miss Emotional
-Mr. Fatigue

Did I forget anybody?

Anywatzit, last month's period was the worst I've ever experienced it (begging to go to the hospital just sounds like oodles of fun, doesn't it?), so needless to say, I'm scared sh****** that this is going to be just as bad.

As of a couple days ago, my staple is Excedrin PM because it's really the only thing that works for me during this time of month. I just want to get this over and done with so I can go back go my semi-normal, feeling-okay-and-pushing-through-the-rest self, because then I can actually DO things.

Seriously though people, if you have any suggestions at all, I want to hear them! I'll try anything.

Some good news outside of this dreaded time-I finished the last of my second round of antibiotics yesterday from this new doctor we went to, and I'm still working on the second round of homeopathic drops. My third scheduled appointment was moved from the 1st of November to the 11th because my mom wants him to see what happens to me when I'm expecting Tom, which I think is a great idea.

Hopefully he'll be able to help me, too!

Have you tried or are you able to do the Depo-Provera birth control shot? I was on it for a year or so before and I hardly ever had a period. That was a plus!

ugh I feel for you! get the doctor to see you when TOM is around is an awesome idea! prob it will have a solution to alleviate the symptoms.

Other than Tom it sounds like this new doctor stuff is helping some! That is AWESOME!
Prayers are still going your way!

I wish I had some good suggestions for you. I'm one of those lucky women that alternate between what my doctor calls a "silent period" (which means that it's completely unnoticeable) and just being very light for a couple of days with no real side effects. Yeah, please don't hate me.

I have to admit that I'm completely unfamiliar with periods that cause a debilitating series of pain. I've heard of it, but I've not known anyone that has such ill effects.

Is it possible that you have an underlying condition (aside from your Lyme Disease) such as ovarian cysts or something that pulsate and swell or just occur during that time of month?

Have you tried those new birth control methods that you only have periods every few months? That I would think would be great for you to at least minimize the amount of times you have to go through this.

I dread my period too. It's the most painful time in the month. I take Midol or Pamprin. I just want a constant morphine drip though.

I hope yours wont be as bad as last.

Glad your meds are going alright and I agree with moving the appt to further in Nov.

You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
