Blendergrl's Weight Loss Tracker

Sunday, June 14, 2009


I will try not to gross anyone out with too much information (I am not the kind to talk much about bodily functions - even to my closest friends) but I am once again suffering from TOM. I am on day 4 of the heaviest period I have had in years. It has zapped any bit of energy I have, I dont want to cook, eat, exercise or get out of bed. The cramps had me in tears yesterday. I went with DH to our friends funeral and that left me completely exhausted physically and emotionally.

I know I need to see a doctor, I don't have a family doctor here since we moved a year ago, I think I am trying to avoid the process I have been through in the past. Poked, prodded, medicated etc.. but it is really starting to effect my life.

I am on vacation this week, DH is back at work and will be working overtime for the next 10 days so I think I am going to fly to Calgary and visit some friends, clear my head and will deal with my rebelling body when I get back.

I am having the same TOM issues and have been to the dr and there really is a lot that they can try helping you with, you shouldnt have to suffer.

You could just try simply taking evening primrose or Vitamin B25 for a month and see if it helps at all.

Also i was told to avoid soy products, eat more cabbage/kale/brocolli, increase exercise: especially in run up to TOM. All of these have helped a little, but even that little bit makes such a huge difference.
