Spot On

I have been stuck in menstruation purgatory for three full days. It is awful. I have the whole battery of PMS symptoms — headache, sore breasts, cramping, fatigue, bloating, moodiness — but usually this lasts one day, and I am now on day four.

Oh, and I am spotting. Just enough to make me think the end is near, and then stopping to demonstrate that it is not.

I have never wanted my period to start more than I do right now. I am tired of the PMS and I am tired of waiting for a new cycle. I am also really craving carbohydrates, which are a no-no for at least another week.

I have lost five pounds, however.

3:11PM:  HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!   I have never been so glad to need a maxi pad.  The trick to getting your period to start?  Wear white/light khaki pants.  That’ll do it every time.

    Well, I am sorry your aunt flow is playing tricks on you. That totally sucks. :\ However, congrats on the five pound loss! Woo hoo!

    Congratulations on your weight loss! It is SO hard to stick to my TCM diet around AF time. Good for you.

    To answer your question: one line. Sigh. Now I get to endure 4-5 days waiting for the prometrium to exit my girly bits in preparation for AF’s visit. Fun times. Oh THE best.
