Girly bits [Aug. 9th, 2010|07:30 am]

First glance at the bathroom floor, and you would not have been foolish to jump to the conclusion that my liver had evacuated my body.

I am 52 years old. I keep trying to send a memo to my uterus: I don't know why you are so ambitious, but there is NO WAY you are ever going to be occupied again. You can stop trying so hard. But my body does not listen to these pleas of mine.

I am SO done with this.

Stepping in to say this is pretty much why I'm on meds so that I don't have a period (that and they are extremely painful - I have endometriosis and ovarian cysts). When I did have periods, they lasted 2-3 weeks and were heavy pretty much the whole time. My mom thought I didn't understand how tampons worked b/c I went through so many when I was younger - then she sent me to the gyno at 12 or 13. I started using a cup and I found it easier than a tampon and didn't have to change it as much (of course, they are a little awkward to use if you acn't empty it at home).

I can't take birth control. It runs my blood pressure sky high. I've tried the cups; they don't do any good. I slosh right out of them.
