Insult? This is injury. Join up! [Apr. 5th, 2008|06:08 pm]

[Current Mood |sickat death's door]

Ferrett once told me about a comedian's routine talking about how every disaster in life could be compounded by the words, "and a headache.

For me, today's compounding words are, "and my period just started."

I have arisen from the depths of my lonely, fever-tossed bed only to share that wonderful fact with all of you.

Don't you feel special?

On the plus side, taking guaifenisen should thin the flow of both overabundances of mucus...

I'm sorry, I am considering uterine ablation myself. I strongly suggest it, I think you're done having children, right?

2 weeks away from 50. I should think so! It seems a pity, having to maintain equipment I never intend to use again....

Some people go crazy get a second wind and have late life children. Ablation baby, that's where it's at.

If I did it at this point, it would be on the sidewalk with a sign: "Free to Good Home."

There is NO way. Not even the slightest tug of interest. My biological clock is DOA.

That is exactly how I feel at 38, talk about 5 bucks a month for items that I really wish I could do without buying because ummm....the baby factory is closed for good due to missing parts.

I didn't just have em tied - they took pieces out.

The only good thing about it is I DO get to buy a thing of Haggan Daaz monthly and NO ONE says jack diddley about it.

There are reusable period things. Divacup, for one.

Can you use the Divacup if your parts are tilted or tipped or whatever?

I think so, but I'm not an authority. I don't see why not. It's held by your muscles and maybe a bit of suction. It might be a little more difficult to put in and take out at first, but that's mostly learning how and figuring out how your body is shaped (or at least it was for me).

Thats all you said? My usual verbage for that little sentence has a 4 letter word with an ing at the end of it added before the noun to let everyone know exactly how I feel.

Thank God I've passed that. Don't miss it at all. Of course, that means I now have to deal with thinning hair (on top) and hair on my chin (Does that make sense to anyone??) and worries about osteoporosis. Always something, ain't it?

I still remember being 13 and getting my first one, and thinking to myself, "You mean I'm going to have to do this for rest* of my life???? I did NOT sign up for this!"

*Okay, 40-some years sounds like forever when you're 13.

Holy goddess!

I was lucky not to start until I was 14. Of course at the time I thought I was a freak for being so late....

I've noticed that the female body has a cruel, cruel sense of humour.

I am so sorry :(.

I can usually add the qualifier "and a headache" on even the best of days. It definitely makes every mildly annoying task the equivalent of getting into Mordor!

Major sympathy. Last week was hell week for the opera that I've been regretting auditioning for, and I got my period on the first dress rehearsal night. It was definitely insult to injury.
