Forty is Fun?
Hmmm. I have been 40 for a whole 7 weeks, I have gained weight, started menopause, found new wrinkles and lost energy. I went in for my wonderfully fun annual Dr. appointment (which all you women know we look SO forward to every year), found new lumps bumps and fun things in my breasts, yay, 5th mammogram in the last year just scheduled, and they are not sure what to do for me hormonally since there is so much breast cancer in my family, so I now have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Pollock to discuss my options which I believe are either ablation or a hysterectomy. I started my cycle for the 5th time yesterday since July 1st and I don't think I can afford to keep stocking up on essentials at Costco anymore.......hmmm, food or tampons and pads? Sorry for any men out there reading but life is life. Before I got pregnant with Stevi I had had so many D&C's and freezing and conal biopsies, my Dr. said, if you don't want anymore children, you need a hysterectomy, make a decision, if you want another child I am giving you 6 months to get pregnant or you need surgery........2 weeks later I found out I was pregnant with Stevi. The Dr. said that after giving birth, it would clean my system out for a few years until we need to worry about these issues again. Stevi will be 12 on November 23rd, so he was right, it has only been the last 2 years or so that I have been getting irregular paps and they have been watching me. I am really sick of being anemic and low on energy every time Mother Nature calls. I AM DONE. So I guess I will find out Wednesday, if there are any pre-cancerous cells again, I am just going to have them yank it all out, and since I can't have hormones, I guess I can grow a goatee. Ahhh, the joys of womanhood. Another new thing is when I got my "check-up" umm, they now included the rear end......."YOU COULD HAVE WARNED ME!!"
