Prevention

Ok Ladies,

I'm sitting here feeling oncoming symptoms of pre-pms. It is really not a good thing when preventive measures, to avoid 'most' of the discomforts, are not working. What is a girl to do? It's like knowing why you feel the way you do, but being totally unable to do anything about it while, all the time, you are being effected by it....depressed, in pain, bloated, irritable, etc. All you can tell yourself is, "Oh, it's just that time of the month." Then spend the next 3 to 7 days dealing with it!....Ugh! All this while running a child care!

Those over-the-counter pills have never worked for me. Unfortunately, what does work is that of two heating pads, one on the front and one on my back, and laying down. After a day and a half of that, I'm usually good to go. Moltrin or Extra Strength Tylenol helps with the pain but not enough.

Okay, okay... I got that out and off my chest. Now it's time to go deal with it. I'm still in the "pre" stage....lol! I just had a huge cup of hot, lemon tea. Oh yeah, I'm fighting a cold too. Time to put everything in slow, minimum gear and take it one step at a time.
Gotta do this thing, ladies!

Even though I had a hysterectomy last year I still get PMS. I take lots of evening primose oil which does help. At least I have no pain to deal with.
