I feel awful today.
Sluggish and crampy and Blue.
In fact, I don’t even want to move.
My back aches terribly.
Yes, TOM is upon me.
Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if this is something I was used to, but I haven’t had a visit from Aunt Flo since the beginning of March. (remember, I am 51 years old) I’ve gotten so used to being free of it, I forgot to even look for symptoms. So, when I was weepy and depressed on Sunday, I couldn’t figure out what the problem was until the next day. I knew I’d be in for a bad bout since it had been so long. The physical aspects (although quite severe) I can handle, but it is this feeling of being sluggish and unmotivated that is bugging me. I don’t even feel like eating – which is better than feeling like stuffing my face, I guess. I know I should just get up and DO something, but there are certain physical realities that make it hard to do so.
Maybe I should just give in, cuddle up on the couch with a heating pad and a good book and wait it out.
Should be better tomorrow. I hope.
On the up side, even with the cycle, I have not gained.
