aches & pains f--k off!


3 weeks ago i couldnt shift the feeling of depression and my mood swings were up n down like yoyos. No apparent reason really, just a bad spell not helped by my night sweats caused by menopause and pills. Not a good feeling when u wake up with a wet body and soggy hair. DOH i took me long enough to realise i could tie my hair up when going to bed. My hair was getting dry and strawy and I thought it was because i had dyed it blonde too much.Cost me a fortune in shampoos and conditioners too!
Anyway my mood is much better now, it always passes if i give myself time and keep positive. Seeing as i am a natural pessimist its a tad difficult to change habits of a lifetime. After reading many articles and talking to daughter (nurse) she explained what the hormone cortisol was and how it affects your body when you feel stressed,depressed and so on. It really does have an adverse effect physically as well as emotionally.
Having chronic back pain which also affects legs and arms doesnt help but i count my blessings, there's always someone worse off than yourself, unfortunately, for them i mean.
Got some equipment to help me in everyday activities from the Social Work,also on my good days i can still go out for a couple of hours with my friends so mustnt really complain as i like the life i have.
Getting right breast implanted early next year so both boobs will be same.YES!!! im up a cup size too,36(inches)B. Cant stop buying new underwear as im proud of them. Still feel uneasy about showing them both off on cam as left boob has no nipple yet, that'll be fixed when i get implant. So far so good. Used to say to future hubby that only the good die young so i would live to a ripe old age and he didnt like me saying that as he thought i was good.He can be so sweet when i least expect it!
