‘Tis the Season (For Colds, and Maybe Hypomania) — 5 Comments

    • Man, seriously. When I was younger, I didn’t want to be happy — I wanted to be content. Because happy meant up which meant there’d be a down and stop this swinging I want to get off! So actually being able to be happy and be pretty sure it’s just that… bliss, right? 😀

      And thanks! I really need to quit talking and get moving on that. I’ll confab with the husband today and see about getting booked in in the next week to see the lady doctor. Hopefully that’ll put the fire under my feet that I need to get my checklists and supportive evidence and all that together.

  1. I had endometriosis in my late 20s. I was cramping every other month like I used to cramp when I was in my teens. Saw a gyno and he told me about endometriosis which I’d never heard of before. Had the diagnostic laparoscopy as day surgery (in in the morning; out in the late afternoon.) The reason for the cramping was one ovary was “stuck” due to the endometriosis. He told my family he “unstuck it” and I was fine.

    When I went to get my stitches removed, he put me on birth control pills. I’d never been on them before. I also did not know I was bipolar or anything else because this was before they got out of control and made themselves known to one and all. I spotted every single day AND went into a really bad depression. Finally, I threw the pills away. Everything went back to my normal.

    Good luck with everything!! Please remember to ask about side effects. I know that’s been many years ago, but still . . . be aware, girl!! 🙂

    • Oh totally. I’ve avoided birth control like the plague for fear I’d go completely homicidal from my preexisting mood swings. So I’ll definitely want to step warily though, though it’s certainly worth considering.

      It’s harder to get my endo taken care of because it doesn’t effect my fertility. Ridiculous that people think that’s the only reason to treat it, when anywhere from 50-70% of women with it don’t have fertility issues. I’m pretty sure mine is localised in the bowels, so I am rather concerned that there’s a degree of fusion (and with bowel stuff, it takes some more serious surgery to clean it up). I’m hoping that now that there’s a female doctor at my office that I can get it all taken more seriously.
