abnormal menstruating



I have never had a period this bad in my life. I am passing so much large clotty tissue and I'm changing tampons 1-2 times an hour, which is ridiculous. I have managed to ruin 3 pairs of pants, 3 pairs of underwear, and an office chair today. I normally don't cramp, but I have been doubling over in pain during work. I'm beginning to wonder if this was a missed miscarriage considering I was a little late too. I just started the pill today, but it wouldn't cause this so soon. I had the beginnings of my period prior to this, but it wasn't anywhere near this drastic. Anemia is already setting in. This is going to be a long cycle.

Sleep

Aug 14, 2012 - 8 comments

All I want to do is sleep. I have never been so tired yet I can't sleep. I feel like I switched bodies with my chemo-ridden boyfriend. Now I'm the one nauseous every day-all day, exhausted, with no appetite and headaches. oy...

Lump in my breast UPDATE/Needing to vent

depressed



I had it checked out today and it was deemed as suspicious looking especially since I occasionally feel pain in it, so I am getting a breast ultrasound done sometime next year. What a way to bring in the New Year :'(

...and I got to break this news to my mum when today is her birthday. :-\

oh ya, earlier I had posted a journal entry about my colposcopy results. It turns out the nurse read the wrong negative on my chart. I was negative for Chlamydia and something else, but I still am testing positive for HPV. I have low-grade mild dysplasia. Go figure...I was so excited to finally be rid free of this @#%^$ and I was just majorly given false hope.

I just want this year to end, but even now that's not a good thing to look forward to because I will start off 2012 with the ultrasound. I have never been so depressed in my life. My fiancĂ© and I were not working out, got back together and within days, he was back to the same old childish, self-loathing person. I knew it was too good to be true. He was sooo nice, loving, romantic, and helpful. didnt fight with me once....lasted for 2 days.  FML.

Lump in my breast

brown spot on breast



About a month ago, I discovered a brown spot on my right breast just under the nipple, but didn't think anything of it. Last night, I noticed that it was still there, so I touched it and I found a lump directly underneath it. The lump is kind of hard, close to the surface, and about the size of a marble. I showed my mum and she said the area was blueish and she could see the lump sticking out, so it must be closer to the surface than I realized. Going to call WHW to see what I should do about this or if I should be concerned. This is my second lump in this breast too, but the first time was a fibroid and blamed on my birth control. Not sure what else to do...
