Cancer for the week

Normally, you’re not the most direct person in the world. Nor are you the most concise. You sometimes display tendencies to sidestep the main issues and take the long way home to the truth. Why, then, have you apparently turned into a sleek paragon of precise communication? To what do we owe your crisp new efficiency, your knack for cutting through the crap, and your commitment to saying exactly what you mean? Maybe it has to do with the alignment of the planets. Or maybe you really, really don’t want to be misunderstood.

Hmmm. That doesn’t describe me I don’t think.  Thanks to Mercury in Leo and Saturn in Capricorn, I’m pretty darned direct.  More so than some folks think I oughta be.  Perhaps it’s the concise part that has been lacking.  I know one thing for certain.  I really, really don’t like being misunderstood. 

Had a rough night and day.  Women stuff folks.  Just in case you want to read something else…

Couldn’t get to sleep last night what with the awful cramps. CRAMPS. I got my tubes tied in 1991. Me no want kids.  And me no want some of the equipment that is used specifically and only for that purpose.  Take it out.  But they refuse.  I mean I really shouldn’t be rolled up in a fetal ball in tears after taking 4 vicodon and 2 aleve now should I?  Thank god for oxycodone.  Yes, I have to take that for my cramps.  And if I only take one, they still hurt.  But I can’t stand being as messed up as 2 is unless they are really bad.  So last night I didn’t sleep until 2am waiting for the meds to kill the pain.

Today? The migraines hit.  Hadn’t had enough sleep, the barometric pressure dropped, muggyness abounds and I spent the afternoon sleeping.  Don’t think I’m going to make my meeting tonight.  Darn it.

Why oh why am I one of the peri-menopausal whose monthlies come more often?  *grumble*

I’m surrounded by the smells of the herbs I harvested last evening.  Angelica, artemsia, sage, rosemary, lavender, fennel.  Mmmmmmm. Lovely smells.

I’ve been working hard to get the last pouches done for the solstive Concentric Circles event.  And to get my autumn necklace done.  All the little charms have been waiting patiently to be wired to each other for many months now. I’ll have something to show you all very soon.

Ta for now as I go take drugs and watch movies and bend wire.

  1. Kat went through the gates of hell every month for over 20 years. I’ve never been around a woman that experienced such consistently agonizing periods – and she is damned good at managing pain since she lives with fibromyalgia.

    Doctors wouldn’t allow her a hysterectomy. Might want to have a baby some day. Might change her mind when she got married.

    We got married, told the doctor no way, no how. Surgeons approved the surgery and her world is now a much better place.

  2. I asked and asked and they totally ignored me. Even after the tubal, which I think made things worse physically. Bastids…

    I have fibromyalgia too and migraines, how much pain do they want me to manage I wonder.

  3. What’s up with the crazy doctors telling you what to do with your body?! Damn, that’s maddening!

    Oh, I hope this passes soon for you!

    It is indeed bizarre! But it ain’t passing any time soon. I wish! *laugh* I’ve been going through this since I was 13. Until I am in full menopause, who knows when THAT will be, it’s just the nature of the beast.
