Thanks Victoria, I will ask my doctor about it but I am pretty fed up with the 'U' at this point. I don't need it, I don't want it and it has been a real bitch to me, so, out with it I say!
Thank you Victoria for your post and encouragement,
Yep, I'm keeping the 'U' and the 'O'. I will look into your tincture. Right now I am crashed again. What the hell? I thought I was getting better, high functioning and all. I forgot my husband's name the other day. Jeeeze.
Thanks Kerrilyn, yes I too have endometriosis, confirmed with hysteroscopy but the real problem with the bleeding is the uterine fibroid but great news, no cancer, so we can wait. My doctor was way too enthusiastic with the new robot hysterectomy thing. I don't think I trust robots.
Vicki, forgot to post about the husband thing. There was a post I read somewhere about what CFS is and what mental fog was. She said that it wasn't a matter of forgetting where you placed your keys, but what the keys were for. Now, I haven't misplaced my husband, just his name sometimes (I called him Mom the other day, lol) and we have all had the putting the milk in the stove or other mishaps. But now I wonder, What is this husband thing for? Oh yes, now I remember, he turns down the heat and puts duct tape on things that should be fixed!
I have had a great time posting with you ladies, I wonder if we should have a forum site just for us? We could call it the Woman's Room, or A Room of One's own (love virgina wolfe), or 51% or the Parlor. Of course the men can have their site, we could call it the garage. lol
