In other words...can we talk about ME?
Men...check out of this conversation. Seriously. It ain't for yall.
For the past few months my Midol weeks have been the WORST.THINGS.EVER!!!! They start with migraines and end with migraines and in the middle it's truly perfect HELL.
As yall know I have OCD about my weight. There is truly no other way to describe it. During Midol week and during ovulation I am a SOLID 4 pounds over my normal weight so that's like 7 - 8 days of significant weight gain on me. I mean...4 pounds all in the middle is really a big difference in wardrobe. When I put on certain pants I feel all tight and squoze (yes...I said squoze. It's my official, non-official word) and simply uncomfortable so I stick to wearing loose fitting clothes on those days. And then...as soon as I wake from the morning after my "end" migraine...the weight is gone.
During ovulation there is pain. Like...major pain when I walk. This last time it was so bad I called my doctor and made an appointment to get checked out because it my stomach hurt sooooo bad! And then...once it's done...the pain goes away, my stomach shrinks back and the weight is gone immediately.
I just want to know if anyone else out there is having some of these issues too and, if so, what in the world are you doing about it? I'm adverse to taking drugs stronger than stuff I can get sans prescription (unless there are back spasms involved cuz then...baaaaaaaaaaaby...bring on the good stuff!)
As you get older is Midol week getting worse or easier for you? Do you have the serious weight gain and the pain too? What about the sudden evil bouts? Are they worse-er-est than ever?
Holla atcha girl as I work through this migraine.
